All of a sudden, BANLIST.

Post by MysticJhn » Sat Jan 26, 2019 1:26 am

Continuing their odd banlist release schedule, hardly a month has gone by and we have a new one.
This new list takes effect January 28th.
These are just the changes.

Banned!
Fairy Tail - Snow (New)
Grinder Golem (Was Limited)
Topologic Gumblar Dragon (New)
Number 42: galaxy Tomohawk (New)
Number 86: Heroic Champion Rhongomyniad (New)
Soul Charge (Was Limited)

Limited
Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End (Was Forbidden)
Cyber-Stein (Was Forbidden)
Dark Grepher (New)
Shurit, Strategist of the Nekroz (Was Forbidden)
El Shaddoll Construct (Was Forbidden)
Brilliant Fusion (New)
Gold Sarcophagus (New)
Magical Mid-Breaker Field (New)
Scapegoat (Was Semi-Limited)
Slash Draw (New)

Semi-Limited
No Changes

Unlimited
Inzector Hornet (Was Limited)
Nekroz of Brionac (Was Limited)
Evilswarm Exciton Knight (Was Limited)
Interrupted Kaiju Slumber (Was Limited)
The Monarchs Stormforth (Was Limited)
Eradicator Epidemic Virus (Was Limited)
Infernity Barrier (Was Limited)
Wind-Up Magician (Was Semi-Limited)
T.G. Hyper Librarian (Was Semi-Limited)
Limiter Removal (Was Semi-Limited)


And Yu-Gi-Oh is finally so insane that CHAOS EMPEROR DRAGON is no longer banned.
It wasn't long ago that both it and BLS Envoy of the Beginning were considered both untouchable, forever banned.
Now look at it. We can play them both, not even errata'd.
That just seems crazy to me.

EDIT: Just found out it got an errata, so that's not as crazy since they ruined it (I hate the errara unbans), and yet still crazy.

I like this banlist specially because they released so many cards even if some are questionable like kaiju slumber

All the reactions I saw from Yugitubers seemed really excited about this banlist, especially since it only gives people 1 week to prepare for YCS Chicago.

Yugioh games could be lasting 2 or 3 turns more, there's no love for the FTK. Can't figure out (after Salmangreats) the next competitive deck build for this format. Might have to look to the OCG for some inspritation. . . This format could be unpredictable for two months.

Well from what I heard on YouTube, Sky Strikers have been untouched, as well as Altergeist, so they were still expected to be good.
Another suspect was Trickstars who also went mostly untouched, so they might do something.

It's expected to be a slower control format regardless.

I doubt it'll be Salamangreat, as most YugiTubers seem to think that archetype is just bad.

I also heard Frogs thrown into the mix as a possible "rogue" deck once.
