Apparently, the list is not complete, as the translators are still reading the photo. It's not like Yuginewz hasn't been wrong before, but the list looks decent, and has pretty convincing photo evidence. Discuss the implications and your opinion of this list. -bewk 03:38, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Er... wow, I can already tell that this new list is gonna smack a lot of people in the face, big time... *Blinks* Raining Stars (talkcontribs) 05:03, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Dark Hole. Oh my God. DARRKKK HOLLEEE??? WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I am NOT happy. If Dark Hole is un-banned...I'll go buy one..or something. This list makes me angry in a way. --Drew-Gi-Oh! (talk) 05:43, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

I'll say it again; a smack to the face for everyone... Watch people abuse Dark Hole now; I can already see it. Raining Stars (talkcontribs) 05:45, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Well this list seems pretty good but with a few strange things, Avarice and Icarus? I don't know about you but I have never seen these cards really "abused" maybe icarus in blackwings (which explains black whirlwind) and dark hole + magician of faith = I see brokenness on an epic scale, because all of the sudden Dark hole, Heavy storm, and Infernity Launcher are even worse-ier--Berfomet (talkcontribs) 06:30, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Well, actually, the lists seem to derive more for what's been doing awesome in the OCG that the TCG-players aren't seeing at the moment. Perhaps we're just going for the most deadliest combos that are in front of us whereas the OCG-players probably know something we don't. Sounds like a conspiracy theory though, ha-ha! So, I guess it's more OCG-oriented in terms of what's been extremely effective to them rather than us in general. Raining Stars (talkcontribs) 06:44, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

This list looks deceptive, but kinda convincing. First: Are they really hurting GB decks that much by banning both Rescue Cat and Cold Wave (I don't care about War Chariot becasue I use 2 myself). Seriously, if we look at the top 16 deck list at the from Gen-Con Indy (link here: there is only one GB deck on that whole list. Sadly I see that GB decks will "die" by the end of this year, if not sooner. I say this not becasue of the Rescue Cat/ Cold Wave ban, but just becasue GB's are getting kinda old. It's also ironic that both GB's and X-Sabers with this deck list both have Rescue Cat and Cold Wave in most decks.

I personally see Dark Hole and Magician of Faith as LOL's for Konami. (Kinda like the limited Monster Reborn). Then again, Dark Hole is easily countered by Starlight Road, but I don't know about MoF. What is also up with Skill Drain and Ultimate Offering? First, they're semi-limited, then they aren't? Did format change that fast or are Skill Drain decks getting old too? -- (talk) 08:07, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

IF this list is real. The things I didn't expect were Caius, Treeborn Frog, Dark Hole, Foolish Burial, Burial from a Different Dimension and Gladiator Beast War Chariot. The things that should be on there are Miracle Fusion, Trishula and Dimensional Prison. I don't mind Chariot semi'd; I was going to replace 1 with Effect Veiler anyway.
Also, I don't really see how can the list can 'apparently' be incomplete. Any good duelist can look at the picture on the card and say what it is. -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 12:28, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm... I am suspending something... that card has been listed twice... --FredCat His litterFR 14:03, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

I seriously doubt substitoad will be banned, maybe limited but banned!?! I also don't expect magician of faith or dark hole to become limited, or icarus semi'd. And why would they limit Caius, he might be the best Monarch and splashable in a lot of decks, but why limit him and not semi.

Seems like they're plannig to hit a lot of decks: Infernities (Launcher and Archfiend), blackwings (Whirlwind and icarus), x-Sabers and Gladiator Beasts (Cold wave and Rescue cat). frog OTK (with Substitoad) and even Monarchs (Caius and treeborn). And what really suprises me, is United we Stand. In our swarming meta, I don't want to run in three UwS.

IThis here makes me really want to know the official banlist. Jens (talkcontribs) 16:33, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Dark Hole WOOOO. Now I can finally use one of the billions I have in my trunk (of course if it's true). I knew if Heavy was staying in the game then Dark Hole would have a chance.---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 18:15, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Why are you so happy about the un-banning of Dark Hole? I also have a load of them, but I really hate it when I am hit with one. Jens (talkcontribs) 20:00, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Well, like Lightning Vortex, smart people won't unleash every monster they have, and DESERVE to get Dark Hole'd if they do.---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 21:03, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Too bad they'll just start swarming again or won't lose any card advantage or use this in place of Cold Wave. --Drew-Gi-Oh! (talk) 21:26, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Any deck can maintain hand advantage, it's just the question as to the person using the deck; is THAT PERSON maintaining hand advantage?---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 22:59, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

one whirlwind and one gale? i dont think this is real at all. If it is then i will be sooooo mad--bwinggale(talkcontribs) 00:11, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, me too. Just started with Blackwings about a month ago. And now they are going to be hit with the banlist. Well at least we can be dark hole free until September.... Jens (talkcontribs) 08:44, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I managed to read some of the Semi-Limited list, and spotted some names that weren't listed above. The non-pictured cards are as follows:

Can't read the Limited list though. --Gadjiltron (talkcontribs) 13:44, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

this list really is fake if they are restricting kalut. why would they do that? if this list is real itll be like killing lightsworns all over again but with blackwings this time--bwinggale(talkcontribs) 17:59, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Aw, don't get upset just because of the possibility that you won't be able to stack Kaluts as much as before. --Gadjiltron (talkcontribs) 08:14, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

Well, there ARE resons why these cards are going where they're unconfirmed to be.

  • Rescue Cat: Has about 2-3 decks involving it in the current meta
  • Substitoad: Now you can't mill your whole deck; saw this coming
  • Caius The Shadow Monarch: Too splashable. Removes any threats (preferably anything with over 2400 ATK or more)
  • Treeborn Frog: Easiest way to get out a Monarch. No doubt Frognarchs won't be in Tier 1 anymore
  • Infernity Launcher: Makes too many loops. No doubt Infernities won't be in Tier 1 anymore
  • Destiny Draw: Destiny Hero variants are pretty much out of the meta; saw this coming.
  • Machina Gearframe: Searches Fortress, although the Machina Gadget deck isn't hit much at all besides this, so it'll probably stay in Tier 1
  • Snipe Hunter: I honestly didn't see this coming, but at the same time, I did see this coming. It's the EXACT same feeling as to when D.D. Warrior Lady and Breaker slipped out
  • Dark Grepher: Works well with DAD, Infernities, and certain Destiny Heroes. No need to ban DAD if this happens
  • Ultimate Offering. Double Summon is faster, and without a cost, except you CANNOT Set with Double Summon. But still, usually a dead draw
  • United We Stand: Equip Spells are dieing slowly
  • Skill Drain: Vanilla Decks are definitely NOT in the meta, so it would be a loss for yourself too, which is fair.

-I did not see the others coming, but of course the prize of most slap to the face is Dark Hole, although now things will be more fun.---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 18:55, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Here are some changes that are showing on the site:

  • Gladiator Beast War Chariot (Semi)
  • Trisula, Dragon Of The Ice Barrier (Semi)
  • Burial From A Different Dimension (Semi)Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 22:35, August 15, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I could sufficiently read the list image and say that they're not there. I'm sure you could do a little bit of matching despite the low quality. For the Semi list, top to bottom:
  • おろかな埋葬 (Foolish Burial)
  • ゴッドバードアタック (Icarus Attack)
  • スナイプ・ストーカー (Snipe Hunter)
  • ダーク・グレファー (Dark Grepher)
  • デステニー・ドロー (Destiny Draw)
  • 貪欲な壺 (Pot of Avarice)
  • BF-月影のカルート (Blackwing - Kalut the Moon Shadow)
  • マシンナーズ・ギアフレーム (Machina Gearframe)
--Gadjiltron (talkcontribs) 08:14, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

my thoughts

I can see a few tcg exclusives get limited like Darksoul yes I know Japan doesnt have it but think they can keep unlimited over there till it becomes abusive Like how we did with Brionic for a few months we had 3 to use (talk) 23:44, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Check out these pics I found. All of the cards depicted are somewhere on the list. --Squidman 20 (talkcontribs) 00:23, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

The only card I know from them is Magician of Faith... rest of other, I have no clue to know what kind they are. The one below MoF is level 2, with some kind of explode on it right side of the border... Can anyone get clear list of those cards that appears on the list? --FredCat T.P.F.R.J.R. 00:25, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

I saw those scans in yuginewz and they were Photoshoped, remember Photoshop can make dreams come true =D HYBRID XERO (talkcontribs)

How can you know that? Put a link here quickly. --FredCat T.P.F.R.J.R. 00:40, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

Here is the link for the "Leaked" Ban list that correspond with the above scans: I read somewere that they were Photoshoped I think it was Pojo or somewere in YouTube...I'll look for the link. HYBRID XERO (talkcontribs) 00:54, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, pretty much just go to the top link that BEWK put, and then just scroll down a little to find those pics. Underneath the pics is a POSSIBLE Forbidden/Limited list.---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 01:36, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, these ones are edited versions of.. I think it was 2008's banlist. -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 02:42, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

I personally find it hilarious that people are just whining about what MIGHT be the new ban list by calling it fake when their favorite archetype/cheap-card has taken a hit. Yeesh. Raining Stars (talkcontribs) 08:18, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

The only list that looks real is the one at the top, why? cause there are new scans =D File:09-01-10 Leaked Scan 2.jpg File:09-01-10 Leaked Scan 3.jpg Need a link? HYBRID XERO (talkcontribs) 17:32, August 16, 2010 (UTC)


Hahahaha to all the people that paid $80 for Pot of Duality.--Airbellum (talkcontribs) 01:43, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

That was completely unnecessary. Why did you say something like that? Are you about to tell us all how you got it for a deal? Because we all care.---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 01:50, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
It's probably an anticipation of the cries of despair from the people that just purchased more than one copy of PoD. --Gadjiltron (talkcontribs) 08:14, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
Yep, and yet this amazingly doesn't affect people who don't try to buy a card at certain ridiculous prices... okay, that's probably only 25% of the current players, but still, you get my point! Raining Stars (talkcontribs) 08:18, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
There's still no point to mock the people that did pay such an amount. Anyways, Pot Of Duality.....I KNEW when it hit Secret status it would be the next Emmersblade and Barrier.......but now, even more splashable.---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 18:05, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

I don't have Pot of Duality and not bragging, I am just laughing at the people that are saying it is so good,paying $80 a piece for it and trying to splash it in every deck.--Airbellum (talkcontribs) 01:53, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, since I'd laugh super hard if you bought a new Phone, then I just go out and buy one for 1/8th the price, because there was a recall. Seriously, think before you insult other people. It could very easily be you. --Drew-Gi-Oh! (talk) 02:12, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Cool story bro.--Airbellum (talkcontribs) 02:48, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
Looks like Pot of Duality won't be limited after all. --Drew-Gi-Oh! (talk) 18:16, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, looks like they finally managed to read the Limited List. Well, it the new additions are all kinda expected. I'm sure few vocal people here thought of Sirocco, but with Black Back and his ATK-uniting ability, something had to take a hit. --Gadjiltron (talkcontribs) 11:42, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

Turn out the fact of Blackwing's fallen is real. And Substitoad is happy to stay alive and breathe, not dead (actually banned) --FredCat T.P.F.R.J.R. 11:47, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

List up top has been updated. --Gadjiltron (talkcontribs) 12:03, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

Remember this could still be photoshopped.---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 12:25, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Well, it's still about the same list being discussed in the original post, so might as well clean up some information on it. --Gadjiltron (talkcontribs) 12:33, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
I know. I just don't want people thinking this is the real thing (even though there's a chance it could be). Thanks for editing the list up at the top; I'll just delete the one I posted, since there's no point for 2 of the same banlist on one page.

Well when?

Being that I kind of got back into yugioh RIIIIGHT after the March 2010 banlist, I'm not sure exactly what date Konami releases the new banlist (shouldn't it be in about a day or two?). And don't they release it on DED (talkcontribs) 12:23, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

My personal belief

hey goblin what do u think? Yes, im Pato (talkcontribs) 22:52, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

Is that this list is FAAAAAAAKE. I honestly don't see a reason for blackwings to be getting hit this hard by the banlist...and the cards they're hitting don't even make sense. Sirroco wouldn't even be tounched, and bringing Black Whirlwind down to 1 makes blackwings slower than they already are now with it at 2. Also, I don't believe that Konami would hit Infernity Archfiend ever. it would just kill the Infernity archetype before the OCG ever get Infernity Barrier. Bottomless going to 1? I don't think so. Although, I would be as giddy as a school girl if the brought foolish and D-draw back to 2. Goblinpunch787

Guess what, you misspell and troll, so shut up! That's true banlist, not fake. --FredCat T.P.F.R.J.R. 20:34, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Now I don't believe that I asked for your opinion Mr. kitty, and I said blatantly that this was my opinion and if you can't tell what seems illogical on this banlist that's fine by me, but keep your ignorant opinions to yourself from now on. Goblinpunch787
Then again goblinpunch, nobody asked for your opinion on your feelings towards the banlist. Nobody asked for anyone's opinion. I'm getting sick of people complaining with the banlist (although I can see people going WTF over the blackwing stuff). But seriously, deal with it, or at least don't say things like 'FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE'.---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 22:02, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

I can state my damn opinion if I want to, this is a forum where everyone else clearly has. I'm clearly stating that in MY OPINION this isn't the real ban list. Get over it and quit trying to be some "don't post something because it's not what I want to hear" police. All I did (to reiterate) was say "man this doesn't seem right, I don't think God would do this". Goblinpunch787

And yet you're telling FredCat that you didn't ask for his opinion, like he can't have one himself. You're right, this is a place for opinions. Nobody asked for your opinion and nobody asked for FredCat's. Technically EVERYBODY gave their opinion, but nobody asked for them, including mine. And if you ask me, he was stating facts, rather than opinions. I do believe though, that FredCat's "shut up" was unnecessary, but it could've been because of how you wrote your comment.---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 01:59, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

I'm simply stating that you're dragging this on and being immature for someone stating their opinion. How I wrote my comment was unnecessary? I elongated a word for about 6 letters. Also, for your information, the reason I told him I didn't ask for his opinion was because he told me to shut up because I said that this list was fake(WHICH IT WAS). You need to act like a parent somewhere else, because this ain't going your way no matter how you try to make it. Goblinpunch787

mr kitty i think some1 askd him Yes, im Pato (talkcontribs) 22:52, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

now mines

Although limiting sirocco seems unlikely, imiting inf archfiend & launcher is 1 of the most obvious things ever. i dont know a lot of ppl that use 3 dark grepher, well 2 in a vayu turbo, so it isn't the worst thing that could happen. This will kill whats left of tele-dad,but putting destiny draw at 2 will bring it back 2 life, not 2 mention foolish goin to 2(wich putting there the best). Its weird i havent seen the fortress there, or any LS stuff. The problem begins with the lady & the beast, both as broken as old. btw: now1 here is a troll, but some1 who says some1 is. Yes, im Pato (talkcontribs) 20:54, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

I think most player will opt for Fish deck. So don't sell Coelacanth or sell it expensive...thanks

New List

Oh, ho snap, the the Lists have changed AGAIN.


  • Heavy Storm
  • Brain Control
  • Substitoad
  • Rescue Cat


  • Monster Reborn
  • Dark Hole
  • Black Whirlwind
  • Royal Oppression
  • Infernity Launcher
  • Trishula


  • Mystical Space Typhoon
  • Chaos Sorcerer
  • Snipe Hunter
  • Ojama Trio
  • Magic Cylinder


  • Black Rose Dragon
  • Goblin Zombie
  • Cyber Dragon
  • Treeborn Frog
  • Royal Decree
  • United We Stand

Okay, as usual, this is not likely to be the real list. Some things here don't seem to be very rational choices... Scratch that. Even shriek indicates this. You can rejoice/panic/whine/whatever now. --Gadjiltron (talkcontribs) 08:29, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

This is sounds ok. What needs to be hit got hit. However, why is Monster Reborn at 1, MST at 2, Dark Hole at 1 and Black Rose Dragon at 3???????!!!!!!! Also, with the reprint of Starlight Road, I can confidently say this:

In the future, people will be maining 2 or 3 Starlight Roads.-- HHTurtle Talk   08:41, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

That's not fair!

HOW THE HELL CAN THE PUT BLACK WHIRLWIND AND SIROCCO A 1 EACH??? That destroys the my Blackwing deck, and to top it off they didn't even put Gale back to 2 or something. Oh this sucka I can already see I'm not going to be playing this game much in until the next abn list comes out. There are a lot of decks out there that are much deadlier than the Blackwings.Donzaloog (talkcontribs) 13:56, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure the reason that Whirlwind was put at 1 was because Blackwings did very,very good in the OCG from what I've seen. Not that I agree with it either, but Hey, at least your Blackwings have access to 3 Black Rose Dragon and Monster Reborn so I'd kind of think of it as a healthy trade. Goblinpunch787

Deal with it. You can always play in traditional. And they killed off almost every major format, and substituted new cards to do so. I like it. --Drew-Gi-Oh! (talk) 18:08, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Rescue Cat Banned?!

With the recent release of the new Duelist Revolution cards, you would think Rescue Kitty wouldn't be banned due to Pineapple Cat decks. Rescue Cat may be the new trump card in Meta decks, but couldn't they just have limited other cards; i.e. Faultroll & Darksoul. To top that off, they brought back Dark Hole & Monster Reborn, scrapped Heavy Storm & Brain Control. What is Konami thinking? VolticBicorn (talkcontribs) 13:07, August 18 2010 (UTC)

FOR THE LAST TIME, THIS COULD BE FAKE, but Rescue Cat still probably will get banned; it's been in EVERY Forbidden part of EVERY fake banlist we've seen X].---Yugioh DED (talkcontribs) 18:48, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
