Rules and Downloads

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 battles in official/certified tournaments. There are 3 classes: Banned cards, Restricted Cards <1>, and Restricted Cards <2>. Each class has their own limit in deck inclusion.

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» continues to examine game balance to ensure Battle Spirits as a fun TCG. Through our examination of the game environment , which accompanies championship preparation, we have decided to revise the Banned and Restricted Cards List from November 1st 2016. Among the cards which were formerly not restricted, we have decided that the following 3 cards need to be restricted due to their impact on the game environment observed from achievements in official/certified events.

The cards “鎧闘鬼ラショウ” and “紫煙獅子” are both easy means to increase the number of cards in a player’s Trash. As the Trash is almost like a second hand to Purple colored decks, and as these card also have other powerful abilities, we have decided to add them to Restricted Cards <1>.

As for “五聖童子,” we have decided to add it to Restricted Cards <1> as it is a powerful card that restricts deck construction, and it has the potential to completely suppress certain decks.

We also have decided to remove “騎士王蛇ペンドラゴン” from Restricted Cards <1> due to its decrease in influence to the game environment.

* Effective from November 1st 2016
