Amazoness Baby Tiger has been removed from Semi-Limited Card List.
Silent Sword Slash and Spellbook of Fate added as Semi-Limited Cards
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.
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.
Just had a duel against a guy with 25 stall cards in his deck. WoD, Floodgate, Widespread destruction, you name it. Gonna do anything to balance any of that out Konami? Would love it if this game became fun to play at high levels, not just a race to see who runs out of stall traps first
The most annoying thing about Heroes not get hit isn't because it is too strong. It is because we keep seeing people posting screenshot in the KOG page then write "just got KOG using Heroes. Here are some tips about how to play it". A real retarded people that posting about how to play a one year old deck makes me sick
Konami has made a lot of good decision by releasing some cards for free or just an R rarity so they can hit them later without hesitation. They gave us Dakini, MAR, Cyber Petit, Amazoness Princess for free. They released Sylvan Marshalleaf, Furries (Dyna Donpa Wiz), Amazoness Onslaught, Spellbook of Fate, Silent Sword Slash in just R rarity. I must admit that releasing them as cheap cards are great decision. But still there are some cards they missed. Releasing Canadia and Anki as UR from big box was Konami's mistake
Konami could get more money if people invest in Batteryman, Noble Knight, Gem Knight, Bujins, Dragunity and many others. But because of their own mistake, many veteran players for almost a year only use one deck and then new players follow the pattern by investing only in one box : Valiant Soul

The Spellbook one is minor, but I feel uncalled for in the current meta. Silent Sword Slash usage has been on the rise with a OTK version.
Maybe they feel it's too soon for the Iron Core deck yet... Can't remember how to spell the normal name...
Koa'ki Meiru just got their support recently. Konami need at least 3 months from release date before making any hit. Maximus will likely be hit for the obvious reason : it's an R card. If Maximus were UR it wouldn't get hit

Honestly, I was certain Maximus was gonna get the semi-limited hammer so this was not that bad at all.
spellbook nerf is actually minor, you still have the same consistency or even slightly better consistency with TTH out of the deck, 6 searchers, 1-2 magical something/ breakers, 2 fates, 3 silent magicians, a lv8 and the rest of the cards, now you just can't steal wins with TTH and you also can't play the late game as your resources run faster but other than that it's the same old spellbooks.
I think Konami did some testing with silent swordman structure deck before making the decision of nerfing SSS so it's quite understandable.
