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 a series of game environment observation since the implementation of the previous Banned and Restricted List, in order to allow greater variety of decks used at Official and Sanctioned Tournaments, we have decided to add the following cards to Banned and Restricted List starting November 1, 2019, before Japan’s Regional Preliminary for 「Battle Spirits Championship 2019 -Super Radiant Descent Cup-」.

For [Sheer Heart Attack] and [The Sun God Beast, Sekhmet Tomb]. By limiting [The Guardian Bug of the Sun, Khepri] to 1, the defense power of the deck centered around the 2 Cost Imaginary Beast was slightly reduced. However, the stability and strategic power of its early game is still sufficient, and that its winning percentage against many deck types is high. Therefore, we will restrict these cards which heighten strategic and defense ability to 1.

For [The First Apostle Raydeer]. The card is highly compatible with [GranWalker Zeus], including its repeated use together with the Restricted Card <1> [Yashium] (Revival), and the use of 《Core Charge》 to increase cores in large number is greater than expected. This situation has damaged the game balance, and thus, we will restrict this card to 1.

Also, considering the influence of the current game environment, the restriction on [The SephiroticShinraDragon Leaf-Seadra] will be lifted.

Restricted Cards <1>
  • BS35-005「The First Apostle Raydeer」
  • BS46-X05「The Sun God Beast, Sekhmet Tomb」
  • BS46-095「Sheer Heart Attack」
  • BS20-X06「The SephiroticShinraDragon Leaf-Seadra」
