Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel – Banlist

Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel Forbidden and Limited Cards (Banlist) – May 01, 2024

Yu-Gi-Oh! MASTER DUELKey features:

  • Genre: TCG Strategy
  • Origin: Japan
  • Number of Players: 1, online
  • System Support: PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Steam, iOS, and Android

Yu-Gi-Oh! MASTER DUEL lets players old and new enjoy the hugely popular Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG in digital form. Players across the globe can compete in intense collectible card Duels, both thrilling to play and watch.

Master Duel has a curated card pool of more than 10,000 cards. Among them are several cards that may not have been released physically in the TCG or OCG, leading to a disparity between the digital platform and physical game. Additionally, Master Duel allows players around the world to compete against each other using the same mechanics and available cards. 

As a result, Master Duel has been separated from both the TCG and OCG formats, becoming its own, independent form of Yu-Gi-Oh! This means the Forbidden and Limited card list (banlist) for Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is entirely original and will help cultivate a unique meta.

The banlist is still broken down into three specific parts, along with a fourth being included at the end of certain updates to show which cards are no longer having their usage limited.

  • Forbidden: A card is not allowed to be used in a player’s Main Deck, Extra Deck, or Side Deck.
  • Limited: Only one copy of a card is allowed to be used in a player’s Main Deck, Extra Deck, or Side Deck.
  • Semi-Limited: Only two copies of a card are allowed to be used in a player’s Main Deck, Extra Deck, or Side Deck.

Historically, Konami spaces out its banlist updates by about three months, giving players time to implement new product releases into their strategies and create new decks, while also allowing the company to gather more data and make informed decisions about which cards to hit next. This method will likely still apply to Master Duel

Here is the current Master Duel Forbidden and Limited card list in effect for ranked gameplay, which will be in effect from May 1, 2024 until the next list is released:
