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 our observations on the decks and results of [Battle Spirits Championship 2019 – Super Radiant Descend Cup], together with considerations of the changes of game rules in April 2020, we have decided to add the following cards to the Banned and Restricted List starting May 1 2020.

「Yashium」and「The Destruction Sword of Conviction, Judgement Dragon Sword」,Although already limited to 1 at the moment,we judged that these 2 cards will have a high probability to destroy the balance of the game, hence we have forbidden them.

「The Dragon God of Preservation, Trivi Kalma」is the strongest spirit at the moment, after the change of game rules in April 2020,being unable to block the opponent from refreshing despite having [Remain on the field] effects will make it stronger than expected and hence, it will be restricted to 1 copy.

「The Staff Beast, Buffaloscore」is used in a deck revolving [Granwalker Saraswati],This deck has a high popularity and win rate in this Battle Spirits Championship,it will destroy the balance of the game especially after April 2020 and hence, it will be restricted to 1 copy.

「Jyushiki War Orge, Shiki Wakamaru」is used in a deck revolving around [Granwalker Tsukuyomi] . This deck has a high popularity and its speed is faster than expected, especially with this card and hence, it will be restricted to 1 copy.
