Since 2013, some players of the YU-GI-OH! Trading Card Game played the Noble Knight deck. Noble Knights are a warrior themed deck that relies on the effects of the Noble Knight monsters. Some Noble Knight monsters need to be equipped with Equip Spell Cards in order to activate their effects. Although the Noble Knight deck had support, the deck seemed to be missing some cards to further support the deck.
On November 21, 2014, Konami released the Noble Knights of the Round Table Box Set. The set contains a ready-to-play 40 card deck with 3 Extra Deck cards (all of the cards in the deck are platinum rare), 1 Power-Up Pack with 3 cards, 1 full-size rubber game mat, 70 sleeves, and 1 storage size. The box set is MSRP at $49.99.

The new Noble Knight support cards
Merlin is a level 3 DARK attribute Spellcaster-type monster with 1400ATK/500DEF.
You can only use each effect of “Merlin” once per turn.
● You can Tribute this card; Special Summon 1 “Noble Knight” monster from your Deck. You cannot Special Summon monsters the turn you activate this effect, except “Noble Knight” monsters.
● During either player’s turn: You can banish this card from your Graveyard; immediately after this effect resolves, Synchro Summon 1 “Noble Knight” Synchro Monster using monsters you control.
● During either player’s turn: You can banish this card from your Graveyard; immediately after this effect resolves, Xyz Summon 1 “Noble Knight” Xyz Monster using monsters you control
With Merlin, a Noble Knight player can Special Summon any 1 “Noble Knight” monster from their deck to the field. This card allows the Noble Knight player to get the monster they want to field as soon as possible. Merlin also allows the Noble Knight player to Synchro Summon or Xyz Summon on the opponent’s turn, if there are appropriate monsters on the field.
Noble Knight Bedwyr is a level 4 LIGHT attribute Warrior-type monster with 1600ATK/1500DEF.
When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can send 1 “Noble Arms” Equip Spell Card from your Deck to the Graveyard. During either player’s turn: You can target 1 “Noble Arms” Equip Spell Card and 1 appropriate monster on the field; equip that Equip Spell Card to that appropriate monster. This effect can only be used once while this card is face-up on the field.
With Noble Knight Bedwyr, the Noble Knight player can get an equip Spell Card into the Graveyard faster to be used later in the duel by the effect of another card. This card can also switch the target of an equip card during either player’s turn, which could benefit a “Noble Knight” monster on the field.
Last Chapter of the Noble Knights is a normal Spell Card.
If your opponent controls a monster and you control no monsters: You can target 1 “Noble Arms” Equip Spell Card and 1 appropriate “Noble Knight” monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that monster, and if you do, equip that Equip Spell Card to that appropriate monster. You can only activate 1 “Last Chapter of the Noble Knights” per turn.
Last Chapter of the Noble Knights is essentially a Monster Reborn that Special Summons 1 “Noble Knight” monster from the player’s Graveyard if that player did not control a monster and the opponent controls a monster and equips an Equip Spell Card from the graveyard to the “Noble Knight” monster. This card can put the Noble Knight player back into the duel and can possibly change the pace of the duel.
The Noble Knights of the Round Table Box Set has many players interested in playing the Noble Knight deck. It is possible to see an increase of Noble Knight decks in tournaments within the coming weeks.
