Duel Links Forbidden & Limited card [Aug 15 Updated]

Duel Links forbidden/limited list.
Duel Links Breaking News
Banlist update has been announced!
update 15/08/2018

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.

Cards that should be limited to 1
Econ(enemy controller)
Order to charge
Champions vigilance
Relinquished
Big wave small wave.
Red eye spirit( I've seen too many use red jewel send 2 to grave and get them back way too easily at 3.
Semi limited cards
Mirror wall(too many run trap jammer in pvp to make it 1)
Supremacy berry. Having 3 makes 3ds way too powerful even with the upgrade to 3,000 lp as that just gives the ability to double berry in 1 turn
Hammer shark with alo added you can 1 otk to easy
Banned
Twin barrel dragon
Barrel dragon
Reason is with the skill to always get heads these cards are too broken
Dark magician girl. ( she makes 3ds too strong as you can 3ds her to field and sage stone dm or double sage.

You don't understand the whole reason of limiting the cards. Those cards you listed does not cause the player to lose in turn 1, i.e. you have a fighting chance, while having 3 restructer revolutions can result in the player to lose without even making a move.

i definitly know big wave small wave isnt that bad, i made a deadulus deck ans big wave small wave maximum effect is hard to pull off, at the most you can summon just 1 powerful monster, realized i could just use shaved angler and run reliable guardian and summon deadulus, or run legendary ocean and just tribute one monster

your right about some of the other cards though, people argue about them not killing turn 1....well how about dying in less than 4-6 turns, those cards literally define speed dueling, they are the cards that end duels quickly not the actual mechanics of peoples decks. literally staples win games

I know this most likely will never happen (especially the box SR/UR cards), but let's dream for a moment that it can happen. Ideally, we should get this on our next list:

Limited:
- Lava Golem
- Temple of the Mind's Eye
- Jade Insect Whistle
- Wall of Disruption
- Mirror Wall
- Floodgate Trap Hole
- Masked HERO Anki
- Destiny HERO Dangerous
- Vision HERO Trinity
- Cyber-Stein
- Amazoness Swordswoman

Semi-Limited:
- Sylvan Komushroomo
- Sylvan Hermitree
- Sylvan Guardioak
- Wiz, Sage Fur Hire
- Dyna, Hero Fur Hire
- Seal, Strategist Fur Hire
- Destiny HERO Decider
- Destiny HERO Drilldark
- Mask Change
- Mask Charge
- Destiny Draw
- Amazoness Princess
- Spellbook Magician of Prophecy
- Spellbook of Fate
- Spellbook of Secrets
- Cosmic Cyclone
- Sphere Kuriboh
- Hey, Trunade!
- Forbidden Chalice
- Super Rush Headlong
- Treacherous Trap Hole
- Paleozoic Canadia
- Draining Shield
- Golden Ladybug
- Doomdog Orthros
- Mask of the Accursed
- Fire Formation - Gyokkou
- A Legendary Ocean
- Abyss Soldier
- Sea Stealth Attack

The above list should swiftly kill all the currently known cancer decks, and let the less cancerous decks shine again. The list also limits players' backrow, meaning players have to plan more with their backrow, creating a more strategic game.

"Can be played around" does not necessarily means the card is not OP.

The cards that should be banned for use against NPCs:
Unhappy Girl
Piranha Army
Union Attack
Gravekeeper's Vassal
Gift of the Martyr
Secret Pass to the Treasures
Mythical Beast Cerberus (That's it's name, right? The one with the spell counters?)
I don't have any problem with these being used in competitive play, but the issue is that they are used for farming. The thing about the creation of farm decks is that they limit creative play. "But Anonyboy," you say. "It's completely up to the user as to whether or not they use a farm deck." Well, TOO BAD! Farm decks give an absurd advantage to players with certain cards, and also doesn't force the players to think. I don't care that the deck board exists, one of the main appeals of Yugioh is the ability to make your own deck. Copy-and-pasting other people's decks to get a ridiculous amount of loot shouldn't be a part of the game. Also, raising the drop rate would help, as with a raised drop rate, farmers have no excuse.

you cant ban blue eyes, because it would remove the ability to summon BEUD on normal conditions.

The reason this will never happen is that Konami is in this just for the money. I know Google gives apps money just for the amount people play the game. By limiting the drop rates and making people spend more time playing the game, they make more money.

I'm not against limited cards at all... But f**k their lack of transparancy from the beginning... They pushed us to use our SR tickets on Red Eyes Spirit / Insight and to spend our gems for Senju / Sonic Bird before limitating the key cards of these decks a month later. It happens too late (for us, not for them of course)

you see boy, even if you managed to come up with a really good creative deck that is cheap and the most f2p way you can think of, people will start using it and as long as it's winning a lot,it will become meta, so you will eventually become a meta slave yourself unless your telling me you like to play decks that lose a lot then ok, I get it you like to play to lose weirdo

Metal slaves are people who followed and always played meta, like being slavery to meta. No matter how insulting you find the term is, facts are facts. Y u guys trying to erase this term? It will not happen.

With such a fast meta changes you can't open a mini box 3 times. For example abyss encounters was a meta defining main box, then the sylvans box and right next the spell book box. You had to go all in for the first box and then you were out of the meta in 1,5 month. Buying packs without choosing the sr you gent is a joke, most of the times you will get the one you don't need.

Personally I had easy games with mask heroes with a geargia. But still mask heroes are an one monster- 3 spells deck. All the top ranked players used heroes as one of their main decks, you are totally out of the game.
<< Anonymous(Geo )

Indeed.

F.e. swap to defence position cards and anti monster effect cards (negate +destro anki/stops drawing a mask). Also banish.

These work great vs masked heros AND can also be useful vs other meta decks.

So there is not a sacrafice.

People that play without those defences and get blown up shouldnt complain really.

baseless conclusions lol this underdawg.. who are you to say that the game is "very small" if not for f2p's participation? don't you know how popular the game is in japan? even so, the definition of "f2p" is relatively loose, an f2p can have bough 5 UR deals in the past and still contribute something to the game. if you want your opinions to be heard, support it with statistical data, for example.

Deck building is the first part of skill needed(okay less as those are fast shared due online).
Second is decision making while playing the cards/looking what the opponent has/could play.
Third is actual playing the cards you have.
I don't say it's super skill needing game, but the opposite is also false.
You still need 'luck' to draw cards to play with.

Skill, lol if you want a card game based on skill that is similar (on certain aspects) to ygo go play magic the gathering, the duel links ygo doesn't require skill at all, just because you need to play a couple more time with a deck that doesn't mean that you need skill
A skill based card game is a game that requires skill every time in every moment and that's not the case of ygo

Magic, an exquisite game. You can't really compare them since Magic had almost a decade of a head start here in the States. Also, most TCGs require skill just formulating a deck strategy for High level tournaments, Side Deck choices can also make or break your performance...there's too many factors here to just rely on luck.

Magic has set rotation, meaning less cards to worry or think about. Therefore the game is more "static" in a sense.

Yugioh players are more skillful in terms of finding new interactions due to no set rotation, meaning we can have old cards interacting with new ones. Due to this, players have to be really prepared for new combos to be discovered, and such condition builds up player skill better.

why should i stop its a fact that honestly is a major contributor to this games success since what you people don't understand is this is a game that will only survive with new players and that wont happen if you kill their best option to be competitive. frankly your complaints are weak

now if they make a new deck thats just as easy to get and viable as well then hitting glads isn't a big deal but seeing as this game doesnt have many options and glads arent even the best deck hitting them is almost suicide for this game

Duel Links's decks are 20/30 cards only.

What is a logic here; Magic Drain can be negated and it is negating SRH -*- SRH can be negated so what? And why you need more that 2 way to counter (yes no magic drain), will you use half of your deck to counter just SRH. And he is not Card Catalog; it is so much already, just read the card yourself and you can go well

SRH is not a big deal, you only have to play around it. in ofense and defense, you have to play around it. Even with a staple E-con you can be safe in defense and put some use for offensive tactics

Rose Lover won't get banned because it's not overpowered. Stop hiding behing your Wall of D and Mirrorwalls and just use some Quickspells like SRH or E-Con. If the meta changes you need to adapt your backrow and not use the same old cards over and over again.

What kind of logic is this

Monster Reborn is far more broken than Rose Lover for revival, your logic is basically the same as saying that Final Flame (600 LP damage) is broken so Hinotama (just 500 LP damage) must be banned

I think your missing the point the guy was making. Monster reborn does all monster cards so it is more over powered, yes.

But monster reborn is not in this game (and for good reason) however rose lover gives the same advantage as M.R but only for plant types giving plant types one huge advantage over other decks, since most people run three.

Also the only other deck that has a card that powerful in the red eyes, with red eye spirt which as you can see above is limited to just two per deck.

The only reason that this is not being brought up is coz the red eyes deck as it stand now is too weak.
