Duel Links Forbidden & Limited card [May 2020]

Duel Links forbidden/limited list.
Duel Links Breaking News
Structure Deck EX: Return of the Fire Kings
update 11/05/2020

What is forbidden/limited card?

Forbidden cards are essentially "banned" cards, while limited simply means that you can only put 1 in a deck, semi-limited is up to two in your deck only. Some cards in the OCG/TCG are either forbidden, or limited, and this is due to their ability to create an unbalanced experience for the game.

Ruling

Unlike in the TCG/OCG where you can have multiple limited cards with different names in your deck, in Duel Links you can only have a total of 1 limited card in your deck. For example you have limited card A and limited card B, and you already put 1 card A in your deck, you cannot add card B to your deck even if they are not cards of the same name.
This rule is also true for semi-limited cards in which you can only have a total of 2 semi-limited cards in your deck.

My predictions for the banlist:
Shiranui: level Aug need 1k life, Sunsaga to 2.
DM: Rod to 2.
Crystron: Amatrix to 2, Smiger and Citree to 3.
Cyber Dragon: Overflow to 2 or 3.
Blackwings: Whirlwind and Gale to 3.
Elementsaber/Invoked: Purgatrio to 3.
Lunalight Fox to 2.

Shiranui: yes, Nerf this toxic deck big time
DM: Rod is fine at 3
Cyber Dragon: Overflow to 2, tech in a Power Bond

IMO, for DM, what should have been done is both Rod and Navigation to 3.

For Invoked, in addition to Purgatrio, either Aleister or Invocation needs to go to 3 as well.

They keep hitting Elementsaber when it's clear the main issue is the Invoked main deck cards.

Classic Konami scapegoat hit.

There are a lot f2p tier decks (lunalight, ritial beasts, superheavysamurais, shiranui, cydras). Elemental sabers is not. Requires 3 MAIN box resets to get 3 invoker plus another mainbox to get atleast 1 purgatrio. Not to mention all the necessary premium traps it needs. A f2p gamer must invest a lot of time-gems to build it just by farming. Theoritically is f2p, but completely unpractical.

It still f2p in the end. It doesnt change the fact that you can use the main tactic with only gems. PAYING IS ABSOLUTELY OPTIONAL. Just accept it and move on. Many veteran built it with only gems, and they still f2p in the end. They didnt became p2w just because using element sabers. The only p2w deck in meta is hero since stratos is only available in limited pack.

Of course, and every f2p players who are unable to make a "f2p" meta deck have to somehow be big idiots. You are clearly a troll who doesn't even know what he is saying.
Piece of crap troll like you are so happy with your "f2p" meta deck that you look for any excuse to justify it.
Troll and only 🔥ty "f2p" troll here.

I see, just another players who blame others for his own arrogance to complete a full set deck, and started calling anyone who complete the set as p2w in the end of the day to make himself feel better.

Anyone could tell difference between free and pay (including you), and not to mention konami gave us dream ticket a while ago. Just move on dude. No one force you to play element saber.

i swear man shiranui level augmentation has to be nerf that skill are overpowered in turn 1 special summon, that's so trash the synchro also need to limited 2 cards, even in gy and their backrow are heavily strong, its fkin stupid.

Didn't knew De-Synchro needs limit, what caused it?

Also lol Gold Sarc getting limited 3. Not even SD EX/Selection Box card is safe now.

Actually, SR/UR box cards used to be safe.
Then Hey Trunade and TTH got hit, followed by Diamond Core. And now Cosmic Cyclone and Gold Sarc.

It was an ftk with fortune lady's. They would make a dragon with fortune lady past and water, desynchro it to draw a bunch with water, re-syncrho, repeat a bunch of times until you drew your entire deck and burn your oppenent to death with dragon gunfire.

charge is the most important card in the best mill engine we have in the game currently so it does make sense to limit it to 3 however the nerf that doesnt make any sense is gold sark to 3 which killed thunder dragons completely

Gold is a splashable card to many decks (shiranui, td, metaphys etc) with 0 drawbacks. It was even limited in tcg for many years.

Its again limited in the tcg and it was thunder dragons abusing it as one card walking floodgate with protection

While I am happy with the new ban list, I am still disappointed about how bad the Truth Universe box that Konami had to announce new ban list just to promote the box

Truth Universe is so bad not even a new banlist can save it.

Without their full supports, D/D/D and Cyberse are just casual decks at most.

Yeah, Rose Lover should be unlimited again at this point.

If they fear Sylvan again then just semi-limit Komushroomo and Guardioak.

Frankly. I think all ban lists are meaningless.

Agreed 100%, there is no point in limited 1 limited 2 when there is player that can put 3 cards limited 1 n 2 in his decks, i just realize when check his deck, wtf 30 cards all limited 1,2 and 3 but different name

It is straight up impossible to make a deck full of limited 1, 2, and 3 cards due to how the banlist works in DL.

I assume you're just the same 🔥 OP trying to bump up your brainless thought. There have been lots of examples where a banlist caused a deck to be weakened to the point where people no longer play the deck, so "meaningless" is clearly 100% wrong.
Aninymous
Before malefic decks now favorite decks the current meta but I find they quiet useless when I play ojama decks or grandpa decks,

So mine advice, don't give up, the new release decks actually have many weakness against old box,

Do you believe if I said I defeated shiranui deck using simple monster lvl 2&3 only, no tributed in my decks, no counter trap, no spell destroy monster or destroy spell trap cards, mine deck is LP increase, casual decks, I defeated shiranui,superheavy, dark lord, malefic, favorite, ultimate dragon n quintet using this decks. I've only troubled vs metaphys, gear golem, aroma, either this 3 decks my percent won is high

What is the point of limiting Shiranui Squire to 3 if there is no other Shiranui cards limited to 3. Its not like those 🔥ers using that deck is running cosmic cylone or gold sacrophagus!
