Dark Paladin's Yu-Gi-Oh! Dimension
The Upcoming April Ban List

2.20.06

Hello Pojo and Yugioh fans one and all. We're only 5 weeks from getting a new Ban List, so here are my thoughts. I've explained what needs to be added, taken off, limited, semi-limited, etc. and why I believe so.

I. Forbidden Cards

You cannot use these cards in your Deck, Fusion Deck or Side Deck.

Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning Butterfly Dagger - Elma Change of Heart Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End Dark Hole Delinquent Duo Fiber Jar Graceful Charity Harpie's Feather Duster Imperial Order Magical Scientist Mirage of Nightmare Mirror Force Monster Reborn Raigeki Ring of Destruction Sinister Serpent The Forceful Sentry Tribe-Infecting Virus Witch of the Black Forest Yata-Garasu

NEW: Dark Hole

I definately believe Dark Hole needs to go back, having such ridiculously broken cards gone is good and they need to stay gone.
Banning cards like Dark Hole is good and they should stay gone. We did just fine without it.

Other than that, I don't really see a need to really add anything else to it.

II. Limited Cards

You can ONLY use one of the following cards in the Deck, Fusion Deck & Side Deck combined.

Book of Moon
Book of Taiyou
Bottomless Trap Hole
Breaker the Magical Warrior
Call of the Haunted
Card Destruction
Ceasefire
Confiscation
Cyber Jar
D.D. Assailant
D. D. Warrior Lady
Dark Hole
Dark Magician of Chaos
Deck Devastation Virus
Exchange of the Spirit
Exiled Force
Exodia the Forbidden One
Golld Warrior of Dark World
Heavy Storm
Injection Fairy Lily
Jinzo
Left Arm of the Forbidden One
Left Leg of the Forbidden One
Lightning Vortex
Mage Power
Magic Cylinder
Magician of Faith
Makyura the Destructor
Mobius the Frost Monarch
Morphing Jar
Night Assailant
Nobleman of Crossout
Painful Choice
Pot of Greed
Premature Burial
Protector of the Sanctuary
Reckless Greed
Reflect Bounder
Right Arm of the Forbidden One
Right Leg of the Forbidden One
Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys
Sangan
Scapegoat
Sinister Serpent
Snatch Steal
Swords of Revealing Light
Torrential Tribute
Tsukuyomi
Twin-Headed Behemoth
United We Stand

NEW: Bottomless Trap Hole, Cyber Dragon, DD Assailant, Mobius the Frost Monarch, Golld Warrior of Dark World, Makyura the Destructor, Painful Choice, Pot of Greed, Sinister Serpent


Bottomless Trap Hole

*widely used and abused as removal and even tech, one is enough.
Limiting such cards will help people to think outside the box and use something else.

DD Assailant

*out of control and used by nearly everyone in multiples...limiting DD Warrior Lady was good and this by no means hurts the Warrior deck, it will still be plenty powerful at 1

Mobius-The Frost Monarch

*Mobius use has been on the rise by more and more people since the PREVIOUS update...those who don't use him generally side him in doubles

Golld Warrior of Dark World

*Golld hasn't reached his full potential yet, but he's powerful with a deadly effect. Dark World isn't quite on top or anything, but restricting him is a good idea BEFORE he becomes a problem.

Makyura the Destructor

*Makyura was banned before release, and sure Japan has some OTK with him, but we should be able to use him. I don't think his coming would be the end of the world.

Painful Choice

*Painful Choice should come back with both of the Envoys gone, I don't think it helps Dark World that much either. It could be a welcome addition and open up some newer decktypes.

Pot of Greed

*Pot of Greed...simply I want it back, and since Graceful should stay gone, we should get it back. Graceful should stay gone with Dark World, but we simply don't have enough draw.

Sinister Serpent

*Sinister Serpent should also come back AS LONG AS TIV STAYS GONE. I don't believe Sinister coming back will be a huge problem, and it's nice to have the discard.

I removed Limiter Removal, Metamorphosis & TER & MST also...more on that shortly

III. Semi-Limited Cards

You can ONLY use two of the following cards in the Deck, Fusion Deck & Side Deck combined.


Abyss Soldier
Creature Swap
Emergency Provisions
Good Goblin Housekeeping
Gravity Bind
Last Turn
Level Limit - Area B
Limiter Removal
Manticore of Darkness
Metamorphosis
Mystical Space Typhoon
Reinforcement of the Army
Sakuretsu Armor
Thousand Eye Restrict
Upstart Goblin

NEW: Limiter Removal, Metamorphosis, Mystical Space Typhoon, Sakuretsu
Armor, Thousand Eye Restrict

Limiter Removal

*Limiter Removal needs to be at 2 to help make a decent machine deck
more playable. I believe it was only limited for the Cyber End Dragon
OTK.

Metamorphosis

*Metamorphosis should go to 2...the deck was all but destroyed by
limiting it, TER & Magician of Faith. With a second one and a second
TER, the deck may actually be playable again.

Mystical Space Typhoon

*MST should go to 2 simply for the fact we need another one. Here's my
belief...my limiting BTH, and semi Sakuretsu Armor, traps aren't a huge
problem, and there are a lot of chaining traps being played. MST
should be at 2.

Sakuretsu Armor

*Sakuretsu Armor could be used in 3's if Bottolmess Trap Hole were
limited...not broken, but 2 is enough. This also helps people to use
other things.

*Thousand Eye Restrict can also go to 2 to help make the deck more
playable again. The deck is in shambles, and as powerful as he is, I
don't think it's a problem.

That's my two cents, and please feel free to comment. I welcome
constructive criticism, and also feel free to show me your version, I
promise to reply.

Feel free to conatct me @ tsearcy@lssu.edu

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

~Dark Paladin~
