Yu-gi-oh! March 2012 TCG/OCG Ban List Discussion

Well, since the majority of the people commented about the list, I will do the same and share my two cents on the subject. First, the list (From Shriek. If you want to view it to see if it is a legit list, go here.):

Glow-Up Bulb
Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
Trap Dustshoot

Tech Genus Striker
Agent of Mystery, Earth

Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner
Emergency Teleport
Shien's Smoke Signal
Level Limit Area B
Torrential Tribute
Ultimate Offering
Reborn Tengu

Call of the Haunted

My thoughts are as follows:
  • Agents and Tech Genus got hit.
  • Plant Engine is dead with Spore and Glow-Up Bulb gone.
  • Inzektors, Wind-Ups, and Rescue Rabbit decks remain untouched.
It's not much to say about how, but what will you do to counteract the situation?

Now that you saw the Card Discussion on selected cards for Dark World, I'll ask you this: "What decks would be playable this format?" List would be as follows:
  • Six Samurai
  • Gravekeepers
  • Dark World (with or without Skill Drain)
  • Hieroglyphs
  • ...and a few others.
And for the OCG, many new cards would be printed that could possibly overtake Wind-Ups/Inzektors. It's true that more people will quit because of the new list, but it doesn't mean that we can still have fun in whatever decks we use.


Now that the OCG Ban List is out, decks can be made to adapt to the new situation, which means I'll be able to do March 2012 OCG Ban List Deck Building soon.


  1. You forgot about the Hieroglyph, just came out and it already fucked the whole other decks. Kills wind-up and inzektors

    1. Yeah, I knew about Hieroglyphs, but many duelists were focusing in on the "now" concept of the TCG as well by looking over at the OCG. I didn't intentionally forget about Hieroglyphs, I didn't list them directly because I was pointing out some builds that players can build in the TCG that has potential to stop the decks.

      Also, note that I states "...and a few others" which can leave it open-ended for players in the OCG, which means Hieroglyphs could be played as well to stop Inzektors/Wind-Ups.

      However, I'll go fix the post including Hieroglyphs to the list.
