Yu-Gi-Oh! March 2011 Ban List

Mar 14, 2011

The Ban List is Out!

Are you a Yu-Gi-Oh TCG Player? Well as of March 1st 2011, a new “ban list” is out, so check that out and make sure you don’t have these cards in your deck if you’re playing competitively!

Ban ListBan List

Why are they banned?

Many of the cards on the ban list are repeats from previous ban lists. Here’s a summary of some of the more powerful cards:

Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning: the ability to attack again once after it destroys a monster or remove a monster on the field from play is way too powerful for the game. That ability along with the same Attack and Defence as Black Luster Soldier makes it a game-breaker.

Chaos Emperor Dragon – Envoy of the End: This card, along with Yata-Garasu and Painful Choice can effectively lock-down the opponent’s deck. In this combination, it is possible to send all monsters in both players’ hands to the graveyard, make your opponent skip their draw turn, and just continue to attack because your opponent has no monster cards to play.

Dark Magician of Chaos: Infinite looping with free spell recursion makes this card “broken”.

Goyo Guardian: Synchro Summon and Exceed Summon with a relatively high attacking power, not to mention the fact that its powers doesn’t come at a cost makes a lot of players feel like this card is over-powered and needs to be balanced.

Thousand-Eyes Restrict: This card can take control of a strong monster on the opponent’s side. The ability to restrict the opponent’s abilities also makes this card too strong.

What are your thoughts on the ban list?
