Because everybody is doing it

I got bored on Pojo, so I made a slightly troll-ish list which actually came out decently. This isn't any sort of prediction, though I would applaud Konami for being ballsy enough to do something like this. When I made this list, I had a few objectives in mind:

1.) Reverse all the power creep
2.) Kill all the stuff that Konami failed to hit
3.) Kill off as many FTKs as possible
4.) Hit cards that could become problematic if they weren't hit.

And after a bit of arguing, debating, and some very lulzy feedback, I came up with this.

- Dandylion
- Fishborg Blaster
- Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
- Mind Master
- Morphing Jar
- Royal Magical Library
- Sangan
- Chimeratech Fortress Dragon
- T.G. Hyper Librarian
- Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
- Empty Space Sea Serpent Levaiel
- Foolish Burial
- Future Fusion
- Giant Trunade
- Limiter Removal
Monster Reborn- One for One
- Life Equalizer

- Archlord Kristya
- Blackwing - Sirocco the Dawn
- Blackwing - Vayu the Emblem of Honor
- Debris Dragon
- Grapha, Dragon God of Dark World
- Gravekeeper's Spy
- Lonefire Blossom
- Karakuri Steel Shogun mdl 00X "Bureido"
- Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En
- Pot of Avarice
- Dimensional Prison
- Trap Stun
- Ultimate Offering

- Reborn Tengu
- Dewloren, Tiger King of the Ice Barrier

- Magical Stone Excavation
- Megamorph
- Mystical Space Typhoon
- Overload Fusion
I think I weakened just about everything with this list. Might need to touch Glads, but according to the actual feedback I got (ignoring people QQing about me hitting their decks, people who just don't like me, and randoms wanting HS back) this would be a good list.

I suppose I'd better explain a few things on here.

It's pretty much become Destiny Hero - Disk Commander number 2. If your rectal orifice is not damaged due to floral interaction with it, you probably don't play Yu-Gi-Oh! very much.

Fishborg Blaster
To prevent Baha coming up with another FTK with it. It's been abused for quite some time now. It's also an indirect hit to Monarchs, which is nice. Also hits Bunny.dek.

Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
As much as I want OTK preventing cards in the game, Gorz is a bit too much in my honest opinion. Getting a +1 because you let yourself get into a bad situation is a bit silly. You can also synchro with it or its token.

Mind Master
It's Substitoad's cousin.

Morphing Jar
To kill of any empty jar FTKs. Also an indirect hit to DWs.

Royal Magical Library
Because it should have been banned a long time ago.

This got some criticism, but a lot of people are getting fed up of this little *******. It searches way too much in this game and lets people Synchro summon way too easily.

Chimeratech Fortress Dragon
People complained when I banned Limiter Removal, so they recommended this as a sort of trade off. It's fair enough I guess, two less derpy cards in the game.

T.G. Hyper Librarian
Obvious ban is obvious. I see people limit this on their lists and I'm just thinking "Nooooo".

Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
Because dropping it normally leads to a game win. Awful card design on Konami's behalf.

Empty Space Sea Serpent Levaiel
Call it a preemptive hit. This thing is screaming abuse.

Foolish Burial
Because its doing a lot more harm than good.

Future Fusion
Because this card is starting to get out of hand.

Giant Trunade
People keep QQing about this card, so I gave it the banhammer. I got responses like "Now there aren't any mass back row clearers", to which I reply"Good". No more OTKs plx.

Limiter Removal
Why is this still lat 1?

Monster Reborn
Because people asked me to.

One for One
Should've gotten the final nail in the coffin long ago. These sorts of "Summon from deck" cards should not be around imo.

Life Equalizer
Because of the FTKs.

Archlord Kristya
Because it's overpowered.

Blackwing Sirocco & Vayu
If the OCG wasn't still obsessing over BWs, I would've given them something back instead of hitting them. Seriously Japan, just let it go.

Debris Dragon
It's also an Exceed spammer. This might be unnecessary, but better safe than sorry.

Grapha, Dragon God of Dark World
If it weren't Virus compatible, it could hang around. Infinite revival is stupid.

Gravekeeper's Spy
Has now become an Exceed spammer too. That, and GKs need a hit. People will go back to them once all the other decks are hit.

Lonefire Blossom
Because summoning an entire type from the deck is silly.

Karakuri Steel Shogun mdl 00X "Bureido"
It's a themed  Librarian. This got some funny feedback. People told me it was unnecessary. I gave them DSummon's build and they went to DN. Afterwards they understood why this thing needs to be hit.

Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En
I didn't feel a full ban was necessary. Once it dies, it wont be coming back.

Pot of Avarice
Obvious hit is obvious.

Dimensional Prison
Random, but why not. You can just shove it in a deck and derp derp control your way to victory.

Trap Stun
Because it enables OTKs. At 1, it's not nearly as strong.

Ultimate Offering
Because everybody else wants this hit. I don't care for it, but I may as well.

Reborn Tengu
I don't care if it's an exclusive, it needs a hit.

Dewloren, Tiger King of the Ice Barrier
Because of looping.

Magical Stone Excavation
Unless there's something I'm missing, this could happily come back to 3.

Demise OTK is so inconsistent, especially with so few OTK enablers left after my hits.

Mystical Space Typhoon
Because its not unbalanced in any way, shape or form. It doesn't need to be semi, I don't know anyone (aside from maybe scraps) who would main 3.

Overload Fusion
Why not? Future Fusion is banned.


Well, that was fun. Comment or rate if you really want. Don't rate down because you disagree with the list though, that's not what the rating system is for. =/



  1. I dun think this ban list is real enough.Usually Konami will only ban those cards that have reprinted and overpower.Apart from that,Konami will not totally against OTKs happening bcoz they know this is the value of Yugioh and they are much more worry of FTK than OTK.Thus Konami will not make much change to those cards that enable OTKs to happen.

  2. So nice of you to mention me lol.

    Anyway the above list is not supposed to be real, it's just what should happen in an ideal yugioh world. But sadly, we all know not even close to 50% of this is gonna happen. =/

  3. @scyu.lee: It's not meant to be real. This is me doing what everybody has been asking for. =/

    @Bahamut84: You are the legendary combo maker, how can I not mention you. XD :P

    It's sad that Konami keeps ignoring this stuff. Just look at Temporary Truce. =/

  4. If you hit one for one, lonefire and dandylion. Spore and glow-up will be really useless.

    I agree with your list, but maybe you are hiting many things.
