Battle Styles Single Strike and Rapid Strike

The Battle Styles expansion set, was released March 19th 2021 and is very much focused on the Trading Card Game rather than being aimed at collectors.

This 5th expansion in the Sword and Shield series introduced two new mechanics to the game – Single Strike Style and Rapid Strike Style. These new mechanics bring an interesting dynamic to the game and will influence player strategy.

Single Strike label

Single strike style cards are distinguished by a red Single Strike label at the top of the card. These cards are all about strength and power and allow the player to make a single, powerful attack which may be strong enough to knock out your opponent.
