I guess Orochi was right, and Mirror Force and Dark Hole have been switched. o_o I guess I owe you an apology then.

But seriously, this works out *perfectly* for me. I just got an Ultra Rare 1st Edition Mirror Force the other night in an awesome trade. My Ultimate Raviel for his Ultra Raviel, Mirror Force, (Slightly bad condition... but only knocks the price down by a few quid.) Secret Rare Imperial Order, Super Rare Hobby League Greenkappa and Secret Rare Thousand Knives. : D Now I don't have to shell out for one.

Cyber Jar being banned kinda hurts my Toon deck... can't flip on opponent's turn and summon Toons to attack directly the next. :/

Magician of Faith back to two is cool though. ^_^ Toon World and Toon Table of Contents ftw~ And Reflect Bounder... interesting.

I'm not surprised on some of these cards. But I'm glad some of them are back to what they originally were. Like Graceful Charity, for instance, now I can put mine back into a deck I may construct (Since I disassembled both my decks).

Pika Hikari KT
17th March 2006, 11:39 PM
Hey, we got an extra card unrestricted--Book of Taiyou! I don't play with others; but I do have three of the games. I knew Pot of Avarice would get on the list when I read what it did(too much help for Exodia and Destiny Board!). And Abyss Soldier is very evil--Legendary Ocean is already popular as it is!

I don't see what PoA does for Destiny Board. Pot of Avarice was restriced to stop MPT.

Also, I didn't realize Alfonso was so determined for a good original deck. Yay for Alfonso!!

I still feel though that 1 for 1's should've been axed here. Hopefully, UDE will do this next time around.

~Sirnight~
17th March 2006, 11:48 PM
"Sigh". (Puts self back together) Great, Cyber Jar and Dark Hole are banned... two of my best field getter-rid-ofs. At least I have Lightning Vortex and Torrential. Maybe I can buy or trade for a Mirror Force. But, hey, it's for April 1st, right? That means I can use it for my tournement tommarrow, right? (Gets a little frantic)

~RaikouRider243~
17th March 2006, 11:52 PM
The only problem I have with this list is it does not address the issue of Cyber Dragon. It should have been restricted. Otherwise this list is perfect.

This new list makes me all emo... but at least I can now have Graceful 2 Noblemans and 2 MoF.

Problem is...

Since the effect of Graceful Charity isn't a cost, you can discard Dark World monsters for their effect and summon them to the field without any sort of cost whatsoever... and you get another card too. Seems a little too broken to me, and will probably cause Dark World to gain huge popularity in the Meta. And Graceful to go back to being banned on the October 1st Ban List.

Might have been better to bring back Pot of Greed. Sure, you get two cards for nothing, but that's better than a card that in many decks will discard to your advantage. (Chaos is still around somewhat and as previously mentioned, Dark World.)

And yeah, I know about TDMG. XD It's going straight in my deck... being the only Toon that can attack the turn it's summoned.

Hmmm... I get a feeling a lot of people are going to be kicking themselves for trading in their Mirror Forces. Especially at the price that they're going for.

18th March 2006, 12:52 AM
Well **** me...

That's lovely, all of my decks use Cyber Pod.
And what's the deal with the Frog, did they just want to screw over that new Fusion Frog or do they honestly think the dead frog's effect is that devestating?

~Sirnight~
18th March 2006, 2:54 AM
I didn't see Nobleman- that could be handy. I'll have to get my hands on a Mirror and Graceful soon though. (Possibly from someone who doesn't know it's coming back :))

The Requiem
18th March 2006, 4:29 AM
Well we got a list that almost mirrors the OCG list.

Fine and dandy but it does NOTHING really. Not much.

Oh and about DW, its really not that much better. For every monster you drop you reduce your hand size, and increase your chance for getting Mirror Force'd.

Alfonso, no apology is necessary, you didnt do anything wrong other than state your opinion, I was just right.

<<...which happens a lot.


I only wanted Snatch to go really bad.

Pika Hikari KT
18th March 2006, 5:32 AM
Whoops...totally misread PoC's effect. What I was thinking would make it broken!@_@ Then again, there are still a lot of decks that slighly benefit from this card. But it's best to save it for the late game, as it requires at LEAST 5 Monsters in the Grave.;)

That's what i was just thinkin! Besides its effect even sais it cant be activated if another Treeborn frog is on the field. So thats kind of useless in the card text, if its going to be limited. ;212;

Oof, that sucks.

Oh, before you get all mad at UDE, it's not their fault. Konami INSISTED on having a global Ban List for Worlds, and UDE just had to put up with it.

So don't go yelling at Dan or Kevin.

Because of what's based around it? Bull****. Play Proto Cyber if you're gonna use a Cyber Dragon deck. Cyber Dragon is one of the most broken non-restricted cards around, and needs to be restricted.

This list solved none of the problems in the metagame.

It solved a few. After all, 2 NoC's stop FFC from dominating. Also, with more people running Dark World, Donny Z and Spirit Reaper might see less play.

However, the 1:1's are still around. WE're just going to have to deal with them for a while.

frostweaver
18th March 2006, 11:42 PM
This list isn't that helpful... the only thing it possibly solved is Dark Hole and DDA.

Cyber Dragon miraculously lived so zombies can stay in the dumps for another half a year before any hopes of being played... Reaper is still at 3 (darn it, down to 2 at least, please), and Reinforcement of the Army the uber search card is not being attacked yet? Oh gosh...

Nobleman of Crossout kills FFC, but it also killed spellcasters (who already got a major hit as the apprentice toolbox got attacked). Guess spellcasters must be sacrificed in order to ensure that FFC stays under control...?

6 "Cyber Dragon"s per deck. If they weren't overpriced like mad, I'd be worried.

19th March 2006, 2:04 PM
1 thing I'm curious about. Why the heck did UDE ban Ring of Destruction? It's hardly used anymore thanks to it damaging both of you. I am glad Mirror is back though. Pot should have been brought back; but I guess having Graceful back is good enough...

The Requiem
19th March 2006, 2:13 PM
Zombies are friggin playable...main 2 Bottomless and a Ryu Kokki and tell Cyber Dragon to go screw itself..

What I dont understand is how you guys think its so broken.. Its JUST a 2100 drop. Sure its a special summon, but its summoning from hand, which is ghey in its own right, Its basically vanilla when it hits the field, and all this proto/barrier/laser crap is that.

Crap.

Only thing proto is good for is an easy cyber twin.

~RaikouRider243~
19th March 2006, 4:30 PM
1 thing I'm curious about. Why the heck did UDE ban Ring of Destruction?

Ring is a game-ending card. I can't tell you how many times I've screwed people over and been screwed over by that card. Not to mention Ring-Barrel is sort of a OTK in the sense that you're killing a huge creature and taking double its ATK off your opponent's Life Points. Quite a crippling blow if you ask me.

Shadow the Hedgehog
19th March 2006, 11:44 PM
YAY second MoF. And Graceful Charity. I did not see cyber jar going though. Also second Nobleman of Crossout.

What's with Magician of Faith being Semi but Mask of Darkness being Limited? I'm so dead now with Mirror Force back, but I got my Wildheart and Vampire Lords. Time Seal was dumb, only Forbidden because of Treeborn Frog and Mask of Darkness. The Treeborn Frog deck is dead now. Cyber Jar wasn't even that good.
Next time please limit Cyber Dragon.


This list kinda helped my Zombie deck, sooo I'm HAPPY!!!

You do realize that this list was supposed to help JAPAN's meta?

Seeing how Japan got a crack at the global Banlist first, they used it to help their meta. It was plagued with Victory Dragon/Time Seal lock combo to win. Seeing how that was the case, they had to do something. If you check Japan's list, Victory Dragon will be on their as well.

That's the reason why we got screwed over.

TTar-X
21st March 2006, 4:55 AM
This list does not do much to the meta except speed the game up a little and power down FFC decks significantly.
Overall I like the list except for Graceful and Faith.<--- that is just nuts IMO
Mirror Force for Dark Hole was no surprise, and I for one am glad to see Cyber Jar get benched. I can understand why Time Seal got banned; I saw a guy use a Time Seal-Mask of Darkness-Tuskuyomi comboi that makes the card broken in the Shonen Jump Championships this past weekend.
Pot of Avarice and Treeborn Frog was no shock either.
I don't think DDA should have been restricted; it didn't abuse the meta as much as you people think. Then again, Refelct Bounder WAS at one and it isn't as good as DDA. :-/
I for one am glad that Cyber Dragon didn't get touched, I don't really see a need to.

Worst list in awhile, yub yub.

Sakeratsu Armour replaced Mirror Force, and now they're sitting together side-by-side. Shameful.

But I just talked to Mr.Tewart about the new list and some EOJ stuff. Nice guy. Now that this is a Global list, the WC is going to be a lot more balanced now.

UDE is Upperdeck, the gaming company responsible for distributing the Yugioh: Duel Monsters TCG in the States (and possibly Canada, not sure). They also play a role in helping KONAMI decide on changes made to the TCG banlist.

Hmmm... I get a feeling a lot of people are going to be kicking themselves for trading in their Mirror Forces. Especially at the price that they're going for.
Heehee. Suckers. Glad I didn't become one of them. Now I laugh at them for trading their MFs.

Dark Hole being banned is great for me - my opponents always pull that sonuva out while their field is empty of monsters and then kick my butt after that. I was hoping it'd get the boot.

When has the banlist ever solved a problem without creating more?
Never.

Why the heck did UDE ban Ring of Destruction? It's hardly used anymore thanks to it damaging both of you.
Three words: Ring of Defense. Which angers me. Another broken card combo. I'm sick of it. Now I'm happy that no one else will have the happy pleasure of seeing me ticked because of me losing to them based on that one damn combo.

23rd March 2006, 4:38 AM
UDE didn't ban Ring of Destruction, Konami did. And are you sure we are playing the same game cuz last I checked Ring was one of the most abused traps ever. It's a chainable 1-1 that does damage, it deserved to be banned. IMO it's the best trap available aside from Sixth Sense.

I wouldn't mind to see it unbanned though...

I believe that Ring of Defense can stop Cylinder,m and can be a decent teched sideboard card for burn related traps such as Secret Barrel and Ceasefire. :-/

24th March 2006, 10:52 PM
^ All true. But there will probably end up being some new combo's with Enemy of Justice or something. Though when it caomes to damage/traps, my combo is Eye of Truth/Bad Reaction to Simochi. Meh, not that good any way. You know, after seeing the show, I only thought Ring, Deffense works on Ring of Desrtuction.

Aquadon
25th March 2006, 12:14 AM
What is MPT and UDE?
Haruka's Swimsuit got UDE, I'm answering for MPT.

MPT is short for Merchant-Pot Turbo. Basically, you use Magical Merchant to shrink your deck, and use Pot of Avarice to bring back some of the crucial cards, like Chaos Sorcerer.

It was a major decktype in Japan.

Sure, they did something similar with Makyura- but technically, that card was only new in English, it had been around for quite some time in the OCG.

Trust me, the Sacred Beasts won't be on here for Millenia to come. As a matter of fact, I highly doubt any Nomi will become Restricted anytime soon, much less a Nomi that requires 3 cards on the field.

Why do they make cards if we can't use them?
These cards are only banned in advance list format, since thats what tournaments use, so if you go to a tournament you have to use the banned/restricted list. But I use Traditional so I can used banned cards :P Also to make the game harder.

Judai Yuki
1st April 2006, 1:22 PM
Change of Heart-Takes a monster with no cost
Cyber Jar-Blows up the field
Dark Hole-Basically Above
Monster Reborn-Revive ANY Monster no cost
Pot Of Greed-Idk why this was banned
Witch Of The Black Forest-Many good monsters have around 1000 def points this allows you to get 80% of the played cards in this meta.

Raito
1st April 2006, 9:23 PM
Actually, There are Tourneys that use Trad. But most use Adv.

Judai Yuki
1st April 2006, 11:38 PM
Yeah Adv is to ban cards that are too powerful with no Drawback.Also it kinda sees how you can duel without using about 30 cards.But Personally i think they should only ban cards equal to how many sets are out.

Love Hina Fan
3rd April 2006, 3:17 AM
Pot was banned because it was an instant +1 with no draw back what so ever. I hate it being banned though.

Haruka's Swimsuit
3rd April 2006, 3:30 AM
Yeah Adv is to ban cards that are too powerful with no Drawback.

It's not really a matter of the card's effect, the ban/restrict list is a reflection of what's popular. Everytime someone comes up with a way to use cards in a way that KONAMI hadn't thought of and that way becomes public knowledge, the cards involved get banned or restricted to one (see Goat-Meta-Thousand Eyes).

HarleyScarow
21st April 2006, 7:02 AM
I hope that some of the forbidden cards get off that list soon . . . I got a few cards from my friends the other day that I'm waiting to use so that I can bust the guy next door's behind. I wish that Pot Of Greed wasn't banned though, because it was meant to be used as one of those cards that anybody playing the game would add to their deck. I say that the banned cards should only be the god cards, and at most, have restrictions to what you can have like two or one card only in your deck.

Judai Yuki
23rd April 2006, 6:57 AM
Yeah but people abuse too many cards and they are too powerful.but they should'nt ban the gos cards as their effect's are "This Card May Not Be Used In a Duel".It's effect bans itself =p

Yeah, you've got a point there. Watch someone finds a cool combo to bring out any of the new Sacred Beasts (Uria, Hamon, and Raviel), and everyone who has those cards uses it, watch the cards be on the list.

BTW, they really do need to take Pot of Greed off. I'm getting sick of Graceful Charity. I need a different (legal) card that allows you to draw to look at.

Hare-brained drawback for just two cards.


Jar of Greed

Skelengel's situational (as hell) big brother.


Dark Mimic LV1
Dark Mimic LV3
Too slow, too easy to counter, not enough cards.


Good Goblin Housekeeping
KONAMI ruined this card by limiting to 2. Effect is directly tied to how many you have.

Yes. Keep going until you find a good one.

it makes no sense to down dark mimicLv1 and 3 but not skelengel. they are just about the same thing

Dark Mimic LV3 is better then Dekoichi AND Skelengal depending on the situation.

So, what have I missed, huh? Skelengal can't be morphed, but mimic can. Dekoichi is main-stream, mimic isn't.

Are u people missing something here? Like, c'mon. It's obvious.

But Pot of Greed banning made loads of those Jar cards pointless unless you play Trad.

Jar of Greed is at worst a 1 for 1. Chain it to MST or Heavy and the opponent is JustSOL since you pulled of a 2 for 1 or 1 for none, depending on how you want to put it.

I want to thank Aquadon for the help he gave me on another thread but in response to the gentleman who asked about Treeborn Frog, yes, his effect is that devastating. I played a kid who used it recently and if I'd been able to remove it I'd have won, but with it I just got thrashed. It let him summon tons of tributes and role right over me.

This sucks!

I had to alter my deck because I had a Monster Reborn and a Harpie's Feather Duster in my deck. I also had to take out my Witch of the Black Forest, so now I can't get to Exodia as quickly, unless my deck is shuffled so good as to where I'll get him in the first few turns.

Thank you, Konami, for ruining my deck.

Not entirely true. But we do love arguements :D Also, that Cyber Dragon thread was the fastest growing thread to get locked, IMO.

I would like to see Sorcerer and RftDD hit the Ban List, but it probably won't happen.

Also, congrats on everyone who survived half way through this Ban List. Ready to prepare for the next one?

Akatsuki thread 1 and 2 and Vets Tourney:The Drama were the fastest, if my memory serves right.

Sorcerer is gonna get banned, RFTDD should be restricted to one, and Dragon isn't a very big problem.

Really, some people just look at a card's effect and give up right then and there. :rolleyes:

Judai Yuki
12th July 2006, 11:54 PM

We don't "get" their list as you've mentioned. YGO is now considered a Global, don't forget. UDE has extremely little say in what goes on the list, but ever since getting that title, if Sorcerer is a problem here, they'll make the proper ajustments.

Which get's me thinking. If Chaos Sorcerer goes to 2, and Cyber Dragon get restricted, then the metagame wil just be over-run with Stein-japanese-wannabe decks.

This game is so friggin' awesome.

Then put sorcerer to 1, return to 2, cyber dragon to 1, and stein to 1. Solves all the problems in the meta here. Stein shoulda been restricted when it came out.

oh well it's time to rebuild
it's great that mirror force is back
with graceful back i have a drawing card and reflect bounder is no longer limited meaning i could have 3 in my deck. i'm surprised royal decree isn't even limited. thats great though cause now it's like i have 3 jinzos

well the new ban list is kinda sad but it makes the game more fun now

*points to most decks out there*

Chaos Sorceror- Limited/ Semi-Limited
there are loads of these going around in circulation atm, it is easily summoned, just remove a light and a dark monster from your graveyard. Solid stats, can remove 1 face up monster per turn, only costing it it's right to attack that turn. If decks are based around this card, it's deadly. This will have to be on October's list, I have seen tournament winner's and runner up's decks, and most of them, have Chaos Sorceror.

Exarian Universe - Semi-Limited
Quite a few going around atm, LV4, 1800/1900, solid stats, and a possible pierce effect to boot, even if it does cost it 400 ATK points, it's deadly, especially when used againts things like Spirit Reapers.

Cyber Dragon- Limited/ Semi-Limited
Used ALOT, it's 2100 ATK. If you don't have a monster and your opponent does, you can special summon it. If this was a normal summon, I wouldn't have that much of a problem, but seeing as it's a special summon, you can easily throw down another strong monster in the same turn!

Zaborg the Thunder Monarch - Limited
It destroys a monster as soon as it is summoned, and it's used ALOT.

Cyber Stein - Limited
The only thing stopping this thing from being banned is the 5000 Life points penatly, which is over half of your origonal life points, you are probably not going to use this effect that many times, unless you have a deck full of life gain cards.

Royal Decree- Semi-limited / Limited
come on, it's like a common Jinzo! It is easily obtainable, and stops all traps except for itself!

Return From The Different Dimmension- not on the list
I have seen many deck lists, and I haven't seen one with RFTDD in it. Plus, it costs you half of your life points, and you can only get a maximum of 5 monsters that go at the end of the turn! The only place this is deadly, is my V-Z deck, with Macro Cosmos and 2 Soul Absorptions.

12th August 2006, 5:13 PM
I'm amazed Morphing Jar #2 isn't even on the list yet. It pretty much ****s up everyone's deck.

Not really. I don't see that many people using Jinzo in their decks, and if they do, they're only using 1. Jinzo at 2 makes no difference to me.

However, 2 months in and we all know what the CC decks are here. RaiDa (L&DD), Gadgets, and a Monarch here or there. And Zombies (crazy Il Blud!)

However, I don't think I'd change much. This is a good format.
