Dark Paladin's Yu-Gi-Oh! Dimension
My thoughts for the upcoming Ban List...
2.20.07

Hello again to Pojo and Yugioh fans one and all! Sorry for my recess, but as usual, things in the real world keep me from writing as regularly as I may like. I have been very busy lately with a promotion at my job and other things. Other things involving getting all my paperwork and other stuff done to transfer to a new college in the Fall.

Anyway, we could know the new Ban List here any day, odds are it's still a week or so away, but I would like to get my thoughts in before it comes out.

Newly Banned:

Future Fusion: Future Fusion is the most popular way of summoning the popular Chimeratech in setting up the One Turn Kill, and it does have other possibilities, outside of Chimeratech.

Mirror Force: I don't so much want this card banned, as just it is (however advertantly or inadvertantly) cycled on and off every six months. We had it this time, so odds are, we're losing it again.

Ring of Destruction: One of the best 1 for 1 cards we have, as well as a very powerful finishing card. Very dangerous, and it was fun, but it needs to return.

Treeborn Frog: Hurts Monarch decks, but hurts other decks as well.
More than just the Monarch build will feel the pain of the death of the Frog.

Newly Restricted:

Chimeratech Over-Dragon: Granted, it won't be quite as easy to summon without Future Fusion, but it still has other easy means of being summoned, such as Overload Fusion.

Overload Fusion: This would become the new "Future Fusion" for Chimera, as this makes him just as easy to summon, perhaps easier even.

Thousand Eye Restrict: With Morph and Scapegoat still at one a piece, it wouldn't be terrible to bring back TER. At least with one of each, he is able to be somewhat contained.

Mobius the Frost Monarch: People seem to play two, or even three in their Monarch build, and he is an instant +1 if you successfully destroy two m/t cards.

Zaborg the Thunder Monarch: Now, people ARE playing three of him most of the time, and those who don't are running two. An insane +1 that can leave you hurting.

The Forceful Sentry: Powerful? Yes. We still have Confiscation, but as long as Delinquent Duo were to stay banned, it would be all right.
Good early game, all right mid-game, lackluster late game.

Tsukuyomi: Brings a little balance and control back to the game. It also helps to keep Thousand Eye Restrict and whatever Monarchs may remain in check.

Monster Reborn: We seem to be getting back one of the "core" cards back a list, what with Graceful, Mirror Force, Dark Hole, and such in the last few lists, this is the power card I would like to see come back for a rotation. Will it happen? Probably not, but I can hope.

Newly Semi-Restricted:

Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys: Is the Sacred Phoenix a good card? Yes.
Is it a powerful card? Yes. However, no one is using it to it's potential, or much at all. I don't believe it deserves to be at one anymore folks.

DD Assailant: Again, not the powerhouse it once was. Nearly everyone uses the copy of DD Warrior Lady they're allowed, but only Warrior Toolbox seems to use Assailant.

Instant Fusion: Has potential, BIG potential to be a new Magical Scientist and spawn some new OTK but it hasn't been too big of a problem...yet. Why wait until it does?

Anyway, those are my thoughts, and I welcome any feedback, of course, as always, @ tsearcy@lssu.edu Keeping full well in mind these are just my thoughts, I don't effect the actual list in any way, and my opinion is exactly that: MY OPINON!

You stay classy, PLanet Earth :)

~Dark Paladin~
