Quick Forbidden & Limited List Update

March 28th, 2019

As you all know, the current Forbidden & Limited List page states the next list will be no sooner than April 2. That means that’s the earliest that a new list will appear, but does not mean a list will necessarily appear on (or even around) that date.

Although we have some adjustments in mind, player response to the current list has been very good. Tournament attendance is way up and players are pretty happy.

Expect to see some small adjustments to the list later in April, rather than in early April.

P.S. For those wondering why Nekroz Cycle is not in Duel Power, it didn’t make it in for technical reasons, but a foil version will be included in Battles of Legend: Hero’s Revenge, coming out in July.

Adjustment to Forbidden & Limited Cards List, plus 1 Errata

Here’s some important news regarding the Forbidden & Limited Cards List used for high-level tournaments!

We constantly monitor the Decks and cards used at sanctioned events of all levels, from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series all the way down to local tournaments. Some cards and Decks are always doing better than others, and that’s okay. But we need to make sure that no Deck becomes so powerful that it drowns out the others, because you, the Duelists, have always told us that you like to have a wide variety of Decks show up at your tournaments.

There’s a lot of buzz these days about the Performapal/Performage Decks that have been growing in strength. And while we always expected this deck to be very strong (or even the strongest), it’s strangling some of the other competitive Decks right now, and we’re going to take steps to even things out a little bit.

At the same time, we don’t want to perform a knee-jerk reaction on the Forbidden & Limited Cards List, because that list isn’t just for high-end tournament play, but also for when Duelists play at their friend’s house, at school, or wherever their Dueling might take them.

So what we’re going to do is implement a new idea called the Adjusted List. The Adjusted List places additional restrictions on certain cards, but only for certain sanctioned events. Read more…
