Today the release dates for trial decks 08 and 09, Liberator of the Sanctuary and Eraser of the Empire, have been confirmed as January 26th, 2013. The decks will be available just thirteen days after the first episode of the third season, Link Joker, airs on January 13th. By that time it's expected that TD08's exclusive grade 3s will have their card skills revealed. Additionally, two sleeves based off of the new units, "Solitary Liberator, Gancelot" and "Eraser, Vowing Sword Dragon" have been announced, giving Gancelot fans a long-awaited new look for their decks.
The trial decks, already known to be for Gold Paladin and Narukami, are speculated to include multiclan skills like those of BT09: Clash of the Knights and Dragons' Blaster Blade and Blaster Dark Spirits. If so, this would make the decks compatible with not just existing Gold Paladin support, but also with Royal Paladin and Kagerou support, updating one clan that has not had new cards printed forit since May of 2012.
