Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game – September 2009 Forbidden, Limited and Semi-Limited List

August 24, 2009

As we all know, September is a fun month. It’s the start of a new school year for some people. It’s also the end of summer break. But there is also something for those who play the super special awesome children’s card game called Yu-Gi-Oh! Yep, it’s time for the September 2009 Ban List.

As one of my IRC friends from douzoanime.wordpress.com opened their YVD they spot something not quite right. Yup. It’s the updated list in the right corner of the YVD screen. We immediately opened our magical Internet browsers and saw what was probably the most hilarious format ever.

First of all, I would like to congratulate Dark Strike Fighter on graduating. You’ve been a nice guy to use.

Anyway, they did a nice job by banning Monster Reborn and Card of Safe Return. The first one is getting a bit hax while the other one is just begging to be banned thanks to Zombies. Poor Crush Card Virus is now banned as well. I have to admit, it is a very powerful card that can cripple Decks easily.

The fun part starts with the Limited list. Black Rose Dragon… come on. What did this card do to earn it a Limited status? Sure, it knocks every card on the field away but it also kills itself in the process. Monster Reborn has been banned already. What else can it do? …or did they see something that we did not?

Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind. I have been wondering about this guy and they finally took care of him. He’s pretty powerful, able to halve an opposing monster’s stats permanently… Mr. Demise also falls to Limited category. He must pay 2000 but getting rid of every other card on the field… What I don’t really get is why this guy is Limited yet Judgment Dragon is happily running around in Semi-Limited. Stat-wise, Judgment Dragon is stronger, needs only 1000 LP for its effects and geez, it’s very easy to summon it… JD should be the one here, not Demise, in my opinion.

Rescue Cat. Hee hee. Have fun being Limited. You too, Summoner Monk. Mind Control as well. You guys make Synchro Summoning huge monsters seem like making coffee.

Ah-hah. Cold Wave and One for One. I like using Cold Wave… but it’s quite uncool as well. An unguarded opponent’s backfield is sure to eat some delicious damage and if used in succession, can spell game in under 4 turns. One for One is probably here thanks to Cyber Valley and Morphtronic Celfon.

Welcome back, Call of the Haunted. Gone are the days we get free Graveyard summon from either yours or the opponent’s. And now we live in fear that Breaker will kill our Special Summoned monsters. Solemn is also Limited now… ah well. Looks like we’ll just have to depend on our Bribes.

Ahahahahahaha… Now… this is the funny… Chaos Sorcerer… now you’re allowed two. Sure, you’ve grown old and weaker. You must be there so we common people wouldn’t think of Honest, Stardust Dragon or Colossal Fighter for a while. Next thing we know, the Envoys will be back! Just kidding.

They’ve started a move on Plants. Lonefire Blossom is now Semi-Limited. Tell your Tytannials as soon as possible.

Ah, yes. BTH. It’s been rather annoying for a while. Thanks for at least disallowing a third copy.

Breaker is Unlimited. I am not kidding you. He is back… and 2 of his brothers are able to help him rid you of all evil traps in this world. D.D. Warrior Lady is now also at your service. Removing monsters without having to think you wasted her effort when a bigger one arrives. She’ll probably be your BTH if not Dimensional Prison.

Well, it’s gonna be a super funny format. It’s been a while since I had a good laugh. I mean, come on. Black Rose Dragon? What do you think of Stardust Dragon, Colossal Fighter or Honest? Six Samurai? Maybe good ol Royal Decree?

That’s just my thoughts. I’m sure there are many contradictions, comments, additional complaints and stuff about that. Why not share your thoughts as well?

This is the Bunny Chief, over and out
