  • Even if the illustrations are different, you can only have one card in your deck if it has the same card number.
card

This card can delete a player’s own Digimon and collect Digimon cards from a player's own trash for a low cost. As a result, it causes various endless loops and is supporting unintended playstyles. For this reason, we’ve decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck. 

card

This card has a powerful DP-reducing effect, along with an effect that plays a Tamer. Therefore, the output of this card's effects is greater than intended in some decks. For this reason, we’ve decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.

card

As a Digimon card with [X Antibody] in its traits, multiple copies can easily be placed as the bottom digivolution card of a Digimon by other card effects to gain Security Attack +1. Furthermore, when digivolving, it has a powerful defensive effect that prevents other effects from deleting it or reducing its DP until the end of your opponent's next turn. To adjust the game balance, we’ve decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck. 

card

Due to its effect that allows the re-use of cards required for an [End of Attack] DigiXros, this card can be used for a string of repeated attacks at a low cost, just by having multiple copies in a player's hand. Its [On Play] effect also gives it a stronger than intended advantage to [Xros Heart] decks by increasing the number of cards in a player's hand. To adjust the game balance, we’ve decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.

  • ・Restricted Cards (1) - Decks can only include one copy of these cards.
  • Even if the illustrations are different, you can only have one card in your deck if it has the same card number.
card

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

card

This card trashes multiple digivolution cards from the bottom of a Digimon for a low-cost, and can prevent Digimon with no digivolution cards from attacking or blocking each turn. This ultimately limits the gameplay experience and causes frustration. Therefore, we’ve decided to restrict it to 1 copy per deck.

  • Banned cards: Can’t be included in decks.
card

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.

Effective on February 25, 2022

  • ・Restricted Cards (1) - Decks can only include one copy of these cards.
    *Even if the illustrations are different, you can only have one card in your deck if it has the same card number.
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.

  • ・Restricted Cards (1) - Decks 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

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.
