That's a good collection.

I believe that 5Ds is being released at the same time as the next main box, and I saw reports of it being called Stardust Acceleration.
There's still a mini-box release due between now and then, so you have time.
You'll get 500 gems when the next mini-box releases, so that'll get you halfway to your goal... unless, of course, you spend them on the mini-box.
Then again, the next main box will probably also get you 500 gems, and they'll most likely throw gems at us for the new 5Ds world.

Yes so maybe 1000 more by then not to mention the at least two more duel-a-ton’s we’ll have for a few hundred extra gems

So it is!
I assumed they'd have another mini-box, but they totally skipped the 13th mini-box to release Stardust Acceleration.
They also released 2 Selection boxes AND a starter deck with a Yusei theme.
Oddly, they refused to give you access to Stardust Dragon without buying it as the Ultra Rare, only letting Yusei use it as his first Skill.
A bit cheeky, but acceptable.

The new 5Ds world looks great too.
I haven't tried it yet, but now I wonder how the old characters will sound when they Synchro Summon.
Maybe I'll have to try it with Kaiba since they gave me a couple more Blue-Eyes cards and Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon to play with.

Unlock Akiza at the gate, her prize cards have some decent plant support.
She unlocks when you hit 5Ds Stage 5, although I have no idea what her character unlocks are to use her.

I've been playing the heck out of the new 5Ds, my Yusei is already level 20.
Meanwhile I still have original DM series at 15 because that's when I had stopped with everyone.
Before this update I was working on getting all characters to Level 30, but now Yusei has passed some of them from all the play.
Oddly his max level is only 30, but DM and GX characters can go up to 45 (changed from 40 earlier this year).
They have a lot to update. :D

I wish we had gotten a few more generic Synchros.
I didn't expect any great ones to start with, but we're handcuffed by lesser archetypes.

I did just unlock Akiza myself, and now realize all the signer dragons will be locked behind their initial skills.
Unlike Stardust Dragon, though, you cannot get it from a pack as an Ultra Rare.
Hopefully the first mini-box of the 5Ds era has some more generics and at least 1 or 2 more Signer Dragons.

I have a feeling they are restricting the number of generics so Synchro Summons don't get spammy or abusable.
That and they'll only release generic Synchros that are on the low end, at least for now.

I'm predicting Blackwings for the next mini-box.
I know all the Signer Duelists are already in the game to unlock, and people love themselves some Blackwings.
There's no way we'll go too far without Crow's monsters.

I'll tell you what.
Some of the generic NPC decks (the non-gate characters) have been improved, and other have been added that didn't exist before.
My NPCs are at Level 51, and for the Gemini Deck they play, it was well upgraded.
It has that Superalloy Beast Raptinus, which it didn't have before, as well as Black Brutdrago.
That Gemini Deck used to typically be a pushover unless I bricked, but now it's an actual challenge.
The new NPC decks they added are much harder than the old ones at the same level.

There is no way, at least not currently, they'd ever put Trishula or Brionac in the game.
They'd be more broken in the Duel Links meta than Fur Hires were.
I like my Duel Links at the standards it has now (for the most part, there are still OP decks).
There is a slight power creep with Synchros added, but it's not unmanageable, and the pre-Synchro stuff hasn't been killed outright.

I'll say Blackwings for the next main box, Morphtronics for the next mini-box.
I'm curious, though. They just did two main boxes in a row now. Will they add a mini-box to go with Gaia Genesis,
or skip it to go with Stardust Acceleration?
It would be really weird if the 14th Mini-box has Synchros when they were technically introduced in the 15th Main box.

I can almost guarantee and confirm that the next pack with Synchros will contain Blackwings.
In the current Duel-A-Thon, one of the prize cards is Hunter of Black Feathers.
That is basically smacking you in the face with "Blackwings are coming!"
