First Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel banlist hits Cyber ​​Angel Benten and DD Dynamite, but does not hit Eva or Block Dragon

During the first three months of Yu-Gi-Oh! Since the existence of Master Duel, no banlist updates have been made to the game. This has created an interesting meta, especially since various meta decks and the presence of bots have created a wild and somewhat unpleasant for some. On April 24, Konami released the first-ever update to Yu-Gi-Oh! Banlist Master Duel. Although the ban list affects some of the power decks, a number of cards that have become problematic will remain intact.

First, here’s an overview of the new additions to the banlist:

Forbidden (no copies can be used in decks)

None added to the Prohibited section.

Semi-Limited (Limited to two copies)

  • Cyber ​​Angel Benten
  • Conquistador of the Golden Land

Limited (Limited to one copy)

  • JJ Dynamite
  • Sekka’s Light
  • Fusion Destiny
  • The Ghost Knights of Torn Scales
  • Tri-Brigade Fraktall
  • Roshi–Laolao virtual world
  • Lyrilusc – Cobalt Sparrow
  • Prank-Kids Rocksies
  • Adamancipator Analyzer

Unlimited (three copies can be run)

  • Red-Eyes Dark Metal Dragon

Most Master Duel meta decks right now will see some changes, thanks to this banlist update. The Tri-Brigades will have to make some changes thanks to the additions of Cobalt Sparrow and Tri-Brigade Fraktall. These two cards are regularly used in the Tri-Brigade versions. The same goes for Virtual World, although this deck will only see a very minor change. Roshi – Laolao was the only card of this archetype to be hit.

The three decks most affected by this update were Eldlich, Drytrons, and Adamancipators. Eldlich will have to do a major reorganization, as Conquistador was vital to board control. Drytrons will likely be less consistent through Benten’s hit, as its effect could trigger more than once per turn. However, it will still have strength in the future. Adamancipators, on the other hand, had a number of cards in deck builds that made it onto this list. Sekka’s Light, Prank-Kids Rocksies, and Analyzer are all cards used by Adamancipator builds.

Rocksies is also used in Prank-Kids builds, but these should be fine for now.

However, this banlist does not address certain cards that have been ubiquitous in the Master Duel metagame from the very beginning, and have become major issues from a competitive standpoint. True King of All Calamities (Virtual World), Union Carrier & Eva (Drytron), and Block Dragon (Adamanicipator) are all banned in the TCG and have become extremely difficult to navigate, thanks to the various effects these cards possess. These maps will remain after this update. Just like number 86: Heroic Champion – Rhongomyniad, an Xyz Monster that can prevent an opposing player from summoning normal or special monsters.

Another question that will pop up is what will happen to copies of maps that users have in their collections, but can’t use thanks to this update. According to Konami, cards designated as Limited, Semi-Limited, or Banned will receive a +20 Craft Point (CP) bonus when dismantling while on the ban list. The number of times users can get this bonus will correspond to the reduction in the maximum number of copies of the card that can be run in a game.

The new banlist will come into effect on May 9.
