Rules

Banned and Restricted Cards

The following cards are banned or restricted from use in official/certified tournaments according to tournament regulations.

Normally up to 3 copies of the same card may be included in a Battle Spirits deck, but some cards are banned or restricted from in official/certified tournaments.
There are 4 classes: Banned cards, Restricted Cards <1>/ Restricted Cards <2>/Restricted Cards <20>. Each class has their own set limit to be included in a deck.

Please note that some cards maybe removed from the list of Banned and Restricted Cards upon each list renewal due to changes in the game environment.

The “Battle Spirits Special Research Department” regularly ensure game balance through the examination of the game environment so that Battle Spirits may continue to be a fun TCG.
After investigating the deck usage and battle results in [Battle Spirits Championship 2019 -3on3-] (refer as ‘3on3’ below), as well as the game balance after the sales of [Super Radiant Descent Saga Vol.2 Dual Force], we will make adjustment to the game environment before the [Battle Spirits Championship 2019 -Super Radiant Descent-] by adding the following cards to the Banned and Restricted List from August 1st, 2019.

「Fenrik, The Dark Stone's Machine Beast God」 make use of cards placed on field and Opened Zone to activate “return to deck” effect, and has been used even more extensively than when it was released. There will be many more related effects to place cards on field and Opened Zone from now on, and we believe this card significantly damage the fun of the game. Thus, it will be restricted to 1.

The cores added from void to all red-only GranWalker Nexus by 「The Archer of Dragon Star, Lyceus」 [Super Boost] effect is greater than expected. In addition, the card has a powerful [Dragonshot] effect which can destroy GranWalker Nexus with [GranForce] activated. As it was greatly used during 3on3, in consideration of the balance for other colors during tournaments, this card will be restricted to 1.

「The Guardian Bug of the Sun, Khepri」 is widely used in Imaginary Beast deck. As this card provides resistance and ability to setup field quickly, it became extremely difficult when going against Imaginary Beast deck. And it was greatly used during 3on3. In consideration of the balance for other colors during tournaments, this card will be restricted to 1.

「Mridangam Dragon」 had the traits of Death Dragons and was initially designed to increase the number of faced down Opened Zone cards. However, it is not used for Death Dragons. Rather, it is used in green, white or other decks with weaker draw power. In consideration of the game balance being severely disturbed, this card will be restricted to 1.

  • BS43-X04「Fenrik, The Dark Stone's Machine Beast God」
  • BS45-X01「The Archer of Dragon Star, Lyceus」
