After much examination of the game environment, From September 1st 2017, in conjunct with the start of Battle Spirits Championship, there will be changes to the Restricted list.

After examining both Official and Sanctioned Tournaments, to balance the speed and stability of yellow decks against other decks in Official events, the following 3 cards will be restricted.

[The MonkeyTwelveGodKing Hanumerlin] and [The Seventh Monkey King Varlin] have been used for the current [Accel] loop and the speed is too fast, hence to balance the [Accel] loop, the stated cards will be restricted to <1>.

[Queen of Fruits Mangostina] was supposed to allow [Fruitiply] to have a smooth play. But aside from specific decks, the win ratio for other decks to counter against [Queen of Fruits Mangostina] is not high, hence the card is limited to <1>.
