Elemental Hero Stratos I didn't see any hero decks being used at all, I doubt this would have made a very big difference.

Steam, Dragon Ruler of Droplets Well-Deserved
Number 16: Shock Master This was Completly Unexpected, Didn't see this coming at all, I personally find it really nice.
Card Destruction I really don't mind, Obviously Dark Worlds will be less used, but it seems quite appropriate.
Heavy Storm It was coming.
Gateway of the Six Been waiting on this for years
Monster Reborn Even though I will miss it, Reborn is overpowered and does belong on the banlist.
Pot of Avarice I didn't see this coming. I thought Avarice would be fine where it was, but it got banned. Don't really care, it probably should have been banned anyway.
Spellbook of Judgement Very Well Deserved
Super Rejuvenation I would have been fine with it at 1, being banned is just as good with me.
Solemn Judgement Meh.
Ultimate Offering I think Shock Master was enough for this one.

Limited
Atlantean Dragoons
Brotherhood of the Fire Fist- Spirit
Deep Sea Diva
Genex Ally Birdman
Rescue Rabbit Not really needed, Rabbit was inconsistent at 2.
Thunder King Rai-oh More spam from Blackwings and T.G. and whatever else.
Evigishiki Mind Augus
Dewloren, Tiger King of the Ice Barrier I doubt this was needed, but fine with it.
Constellar Ptolemy M7 Constellar got hit at least. M7 gets annoying at times.
Dimensional Fissure Are they trying to kill anti-meta?
Gold Sarcophagus THIS actually surprised me. Sarco isn't abusable at all and seemed fine where it was becasue of how slow it is.
Royal Tribute Sorry Breese :(
Bottomless Trap Hole MUCH slower format
Compulsory Evacuation Device ^
Eradicator Epidemic Virus Like any deck is going to run 2 or 3 anyway
Macro Cosmos See dimensional fissure
Soul Drain Meh
Torrential Tribute See BTH

Semi-limited
Mezuki Zombies :o
Plaguespreader Zombie Moar Synchro :o
T.G. Striker T.G. Agents anyone?
Fire formation - Tenki
Dimensional Prison Not really necessary

Unlimited
Destiny Hero - Malicious
The Agent of Mystery Earth T.G. Agents.
Tsukuyomi Not really important at all
A Hero Lives Well they banned stratos
Black Whirlwind Blackwings Tier 2
E- Emergency Call See A Hero Lives
Hieratic Seal of Convocation REDMD at 1, no one cares.
Pot of Duality Not really going to change the game a ton, just slowing it down.
Scapegoat Going to slow it down a lot, but it's not goat control, isn't going to be that bad.

If Stratos wasn't hit, you would have Bloo-D Goat.dek running around with all the Hero cards.

Well it's a bit shocking and going to be very difficult to wrap my head around, but I think this is going to be a great format.

People are already exicted about Blackwings, but I still don't think they're that good. They have almost zero good synchros to use, so unless you find another way to use them, I don't see them being that big.

Blackwings can still Xyz and got their draw power back. Black Whirlwind at 3 should have happened since WU Factory is at 3 really. Infernity's are a thing since they didn't hit Launcher but it makes sense since they left all of the themed removal alone.

I swear I remember someone saying that Shueisha doesn't allow Konami to ban any Number cards...

I think we can throw tiers out the window. The TCG format is going to be so muddled that it will be hard.

Shueisha does not release V-Jump in Not!Japan, therefore they hold no sway in TCG areas since their magazine is not promoting the manga.

So any reason why the TCG list is so drastically different from the OCG list?
What happened here that we're being treated as two different games again?

EDIT: Did I miss something? I went to the official website and it's still showing the previous banlist.
EDIT #2: Apparently the official site needs to update it's own links.
If you click the link in the menu under Gameplay, it shows you the old list.
But if you delete "index.html" from the address, then it brings you to the new list.

No reason other than to use us as a testing ground. I am happy after about five minutes of weighing my options and realizing my favorite Archetype just became awesome.

How are we a testing ground when the OCG gets the cards first?
That just seems backwards, what would they be testing?
They have been playing with everything we have for 3 months.

Just realised I can run so many of my decks I have IRL.

Geargia, Karakuri, Darkworld, Verz, Fire King (still building), Blackwings (Although they need a major update) and even Malefics...

Well to test what works and what doesn't on the list. I like the fact that this game is becoming fun again. Going to be hard to side me thinks.
