Massive Yu-Gi-Oh TCG Banlist Update Bans 4 Cards, Limits 6

Four cards are now banned and six more are limited as a result of a massive update to the Yu-Gi-Oh TCG’s ban list, which also affects sixteen different cards.

The massively popular trading card game from Konami is known for making significant updates to its ban list to change the game’s meta.

The TCG’s updates typically happen a few months a part, as opposed to Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel’s monthly ban list changes. Because of the widespread use of “Tier 0” cards in the TCG, Konami is implementing several major changes.

Following the release of the Phantom Nightmare set earlier this year, the Yu-Gi-Oh TCG has been dominated by a single deck, introducing the game’s newest “Tier 0” meta. Fans of the popular “Snake-Eye” strategy have had a lot of success at tournaments, with many of the top-ranked decks using this strategy.

The potent Snake-Eye cards have also seen play alongside other well-liked FIRE-Attribute archetypes, like “Rescue-ACE” and “Fire King,” in addition to the pure version of the deck.

Now, the newest update to the banlist is meant to include a lot of cards and hit players in several different ways.

On Saturday, Konami officially announced the new update to Yu-Gi-Oh’s “Forbidden and Limited List,” which affects sixteen different cards. With powerful staples like “Baronne de Fleur” and “Linkuriboh” set to Forbidden status, the new ban list update completely removes four cards from the game.

Six new cards have been added to the “Limited” section, and several cards that were previously banned have been made available again, including “Archenemies Protos,” “Thunder Dragon Colossus,” and “Chicken Game.”

The only previously Unlimited card to be newly set to 1 copy is the potent floodgate card “Anti-Spell Fragrance.”

Along with the big hits, Yu-Gi-Oh’s new update also shows several well-liked strategies getting cards back from the banned list.

With “Destiny HERO – Malicious” set to Unlimited status, Yu-Gi-Oh’s HERO archetype, which Jaden Yuki and Aster Phoenix used in the Yu-Gi-Oh GX anime, would see a small change.

Fan-favorite decks like “Orcust” and “Sky Striker” would also see positive changes from the ban list, with both “Orcust Harp Horror” and “Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage!” returning to three copies.

The ban list update is set to take effect on April 15 in North and Latin America and on April 22 in other regions.

Although the new ban list update does not directly affect Yu-Gi-Oh’s Tier 0 archetype, it does address several cards used in Snake-Eye decks.

Snake-Eye players frequently chose “Linkuriboh,” using it to quickly trigger the powerful Graveyard effect of “Snake-Eye Poplar.”

This deck could also use cards like “Borreload Savage Dragon” and “Baronne de Fleur” to protect its combos. As Yu-Gi-Oh’s playerbase experiments with new cards, the most recent ban list update should significantly alter deckbuilding.
