[BSC32] [Our Miracle] Booster includes a great amount of GranWalker Nexus. Its purpose is to lessen the color bias, and at the same time bringing fun to building GranWalker Nexus decks. Also, to make it possible to create decks expanding the use of large quantity of low cost GranWalker Nexus.
As a result, it became easy to secure many reduction symbols, especially with the effects of these low cost cards [Bladra (Revival)] and [Catfish, Lookout of the Dragon Emperor Pirate Gang], it became easier to draw more cards than we expected.
Currently the effects targeted at GranWalker Nexus is limited, and the countermeasures against the above decks equipped with both speed and stability is minimal. Thus, we have decided limit [Bladra] to <1> and at the same time banned [Catfish, Lookout of the Dragon Emperor Pirate Gang].

  • ※Due to [SD03-001 Bladra] and [SD43-RV001 Bladra] both shared the same name, it will be added to Restricted Cards <1> list as well.

Currently [The SupernovaDragon Siegwurm-Nova] is a high performing deck equipped with speed and stability. We believe the advantages of this deck is very prominent. The following 2 cards which bring to this deck its speed and stability will be restricted.
During its early sales period, [His Cards] was made to support cards containing the name [Wurm] with increased draw cards effects. However, as the number of low cost cards containing the name [Wurm] increases, its drawing capabilities exceeded the initial expectation. Hence, we decided to restrict the card.
[The Child God of January, Dianus-Kid ] possessed an equally powerful Radiant Descent effect as [The SupernovaDragon Siegwurm-Nova]. Furthermore, it allows Red Spirit cards with when attack effects to Radiant Descent during Main Step without risks and often resulted in situation where the opponent becomes unable to counter such action. Hence, we decided to restrict the card.
