Things only get better for Geargia strategies with the introduction of three new monster cards including a brand new Geargia Xyz Monster that can shut down your opponent’s cards during battle. New Duelists can now get their hands on these popular cards while advanced Duelists can support their existing Geargia Decks or other Machine-Type Decks to bolster their strategies.
