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 ensures game balance through the examination of the game environment to ensure Battle Spirits continues to be a fun TCG. After much examination of the game environment, From June 1st 2018, there will be changes to the Restricted list.

As the family :「Machine Beast」 is strengthened in the recent 「Gran Radiant Descent Saga」, it increases the chances of 「The SheepTwelveGodKing Glorious-Sheep」 and 「The Noble's Final Arms, Ra=Illuzeon」 being used in combination resulting in a situation where the game is dragged on significantly (game unable to end). The likelihood of this situation happening is higher than expected, and we have determined it will greatly affect the event operations. Hence, we decided that the following 1 card will be restricted to Restricted Cards <1>.
