Level Limit - Area B

Ahh, yet another blow to the standard Burn (that somehow still seems to eek out Top 8s here and there.)

Level Limit is one of the best stall cards we have. It hoses Jinzo, it makes opponent waste M/T removal, and push comes to shove, you can Magic Reflector it (but that's a bit situational).

But the restriction to 1 just means if you were running 2 Messenger of Peace, that you're running 3 now. The problem with that is so many elemental searchers can still attack, and the opponetn may still be able to hack through the weak monsters Burn ends up playing.

It was a good restriction though; YGO was meant to be a more aggressive game in my opinion, and taking one more automatic stall card out of Burn's lineup puts us closer to that (and hopefully discourages some people who were thinking about running Burn from doing so.)

Traditional: 1.5/5

Advanced: 3/5

Closing the week we'll look at a card that was recently Restricted, Level Limit-Area B.

Level Limit-Area B being Restricted, in my own humble opinion, was not necessary at all. Granted, it is powerful, but like most powerful cards, it has its weaknesses. It's a Continuous Magic card meaning it's vulnerable to MST, Heavy Storm, and even Breaker.

Have Stall Decks become so powerful and Continuous Magic cards so hard to destroy we needed to Restrict this? I don't think so. However, Level Limit-Area B is still a good card, though it only really belongs in a few decks. The biggest pro for this is that it switches all monsters of Level 4 or above into defense mode, probably making them easier to destroy, but...

It effects your own monsters as well. However, the smart duelists only use this in decks where it belongs without or with very few high level monsters.

The best place outside of a stall or offensive burn deck is a Fire Princess deck. Being able to continuously burn your opponent via Princess and other cards and not being able to have your opponent attack is brilliant.


Traditional: 3.5/5
Traditional Stall/Offensive Burn/Fire Princess: 4.25/5

Advanced: 4/5
Advanced Stall/Offensive Burn/Fire Princess: 4.75/5

Art: 3.5/5 Not the best this week, but still neat.

You stay classy, PLanet Earth :)

Level Limit Area-B

(By the way my Luster Dragon review was sent in late, you don’t want to miss it)

It’s restricted now. I don’t really care it was never much of a problem here. For the OCG they killed VDragon so that’s all they really needed to do. This just hurts burn/sand control decks. I still prefer Stumbling over LLAB anyways, and Stumbling isn’t restricted.

I’m sure MikeJ and Kahla remember me using Stumbling :P

It’s still a strong card.

Traditional: 2.5/5 (no time for stalling)
Advanced: 4.0/5

Level Limit - Area B:
Having finished dealing with OTKs, Konami turned its deck-killing ban-gun towards burn, the heartless b******s.

This is possibly the single most powerful (but
balanced) stall card in existence. Games grind to a halt until s/t destruction can be found. Though not completely dead, the reduction to one takes away another crutial card from stall strategies. These were already weak enough, with the rampant use of Mobius, and with this loss they will probably not survive this format.

A shame in my opinion.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5 (splashablity)
Stall Deck in Any Format: 5/5

Share and enjoy,

Level limit Area B

Did this merit restriction? I think not, I had Hamon deck lined up and everything.

Level limit area B is essentially one of the best stall cards available to us right now, along with Messenger of piece and Gravity bind. It’s presence has forced many decks into retreat and extended the turn count of games exponentially.

The deck to receive the greatest benefit from this was burn. With this on, you could just sit back and stall to your hearts content.

Overall, Level limit Area B is a good card to stall with, but with that said, its not for every deck.

Traditional : 4/4 (stall)
Advanced 4/5 (stall)

Art ; 4/5
Mps : 4.5/5
