・Restricted Cards (1) - Decks can only include one copy of these cards.

  • *Even the illustrations are different, if they have the same card number that can only include one copy of these cards

Decks with this card have dominated the meta longer than anticipated, limited the variety of yellow colour viable decks. As such, we decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.

card

With low cost, this card trashes multiple cards from the bottom of a digivoled Digimon; plus the additional effects of preventing opponent’s Digimon from attacking or blocking, we decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.

card

With “X-Antibody” traits, other card with “X-antibody” can be simply placed at the bottom of this Digimon as digivolution card. Furthermore, it gains +1 security check and prevents effects of deleting or reducing DP when digivolving until the end of opponent’s next turn. As such, we determined that adding multiple copies to the deck will upset the balance of the game; we decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.

Cards that will become banned or restricted cards on February 1, 2022

Banned cards: cards that are not allowed to add to your deck.

  • *if the card numbers are the same, you can not add the card to your deck even if the designs are different.

BT7-112 Susanoomon is a level 7 Digimon that can digivolve from a Tamer, allowing you to use this card to digivolve for free without the need for a level 6 Digimon, speeding up the metagame and restricting viable decks in the format. As such, we’ve decided to ban this card.Many games end in the early or mid-game simply by using this card to digivolve into a finisher, so we believe simply restricting this card will not be enough to fix the issue. For this reason, we’re choosing the ban this card instead of restricting it.

Restricted Cards (1) - Decks can only include up to one copy of these cards.

  • *Even the illustrations are different, if they have the same card number that can only include one copy of these cards
card

Decks that use this card with BT6-016 Jesmon have dominated the metagame for longer than anticipated, greatly limiting viable decks in red. For this reason, we’ve decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.

card

This card proved considerably more powerful than the other Memory Boost cards, and exceeded our power level estimations when used in specialized decks, such as non-yellow multicolor control decks, and D-Reaper decks. We believe the card is too generally powerful to be left unchecked, and have decided to restrict it to 1 copy per deck.

card

Though performing as intended as a defensive card, using it every turn results in a lock situation that negatively impacts the speed of games. The resulting unenjoyable play patterns outweigh the benefits of the card’s effect, so we’ve decided to restrict it to 1 copy per deck.

card

Using BT7-072 Eyesmon and BT7-069 Eyesmon: Scatter Mode in tandem makes it easier than anticipated to cycle through your deck while playing Digimon to your Battle Area for free. Therefore, we’ve decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.
