The Digimon Card Game is a competitive trading card game. Each player has a companion Digimon in the battle area to attack the opponent. Your Digimon evolves, gets stronger, and gains new power! You win by beating your opponent’s security (reducing your opponent’s Security Area cards to zero) and delivering a knockout blow! To play the Digimon Card Game, you need a deck of cards. For your first time, we recommend a pre-built Starter Deck! You can strengthen your Digimon with Booster Packs to win battles!
Digimon Banned / Restricted Cards
The Digimon trading card game (TCG) is played by two or more players who use decks of cards to battle against each other. The objective is to reduce your opponent’s points (usually represented by the Digimon’s health or other gameplay mechanics) to zero. Players take turns playing cards from their decks, evolving their Digimon, using various attack and defense strategies, and trying to outmaneuver their opponents. The Digimon card game has gone through several iterations and releases over the years, with different rules and mechanics introduced in each version. The game is typically played with pre-constructed decks or customized decks created by players using their card collections.
Collecting Digimon cards has become a popular hobby for fans of the franchise. Cards are often sought after for their artwork, rarity, and gameplay value. Just like other trading card games, Digimon cards may have different levels of rarity, such as common, uncommon, rare, and ultra-rare, which can affect their desirability and value among collectors. Now the Digimon Ban list with names of banned and restricted cards has been released. Based on the competitive environment, the following cards will be added to the banned and restricted list.
Restricted Cards Effective on 1 June 2023
You can only have one restricted card in your deck if it has the same card number as mentioned below:-
- BT3-054 Blossomon – When using [Plant]/[Vegetation]/[Fairy] decks, this card can easily digivolve to level 6, even with very little memory. This limits the future game design possibilities for green cards and [Plant]/[Vegetation]/[Fairy] decks. It also removes the need for another level 5 card with
. For these reasons, we’ve decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.
- BT3-054 Blossomon (Parallel)
- EX2-039 Impmon – In current [Beelzemon] decks, this card has an effect that can trash an additional card from the deck when this card is trashed, making it too easy to build up cards in the trash. Additionally, it even removes the need for using cards such as [ST14-11 Ai & Mako] to place a card at the top of your deck so it can activate an effect when it is trashed from the deck, accelerating the game speed and limiting future game design possibilities for cards that reference the number of cards in your trash. For these reasons, we’ve decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.
- EX2-039 Impmon (Parallel)
- P-008 WereGarurumon – In current decks that use [BT9-028 WereGarurumon (X Antibody)], a quick defeat is possible using this card. It doesn’t have extreme power in current play environments, but this card limits the future game design possibilities for decks that reference the name [Garurumon]. For this reason, we’ve decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.
- P-008 WereGarurumon (Parallel)
- P-025 GranKuwagamon – As this card can add multiple activations of
, this card allows decks with [BT9-055 GrandisKuwagamon] to easily defeat an opponent in a short amount of time, the attacked player has few methods for defense, and this card has been used in play environments for longer than we expected. For these reasons, this card limits the future game design possibilities for decks that reference [GranKuwagamon] or [Insectoid] cards, therefore we’ve decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.
- BT2-047 Argomon
- BT2-047 Argomon (Parallel)
- BT3-103 Hidden Potential Discovered!
Restricted Cards Effective on 1 April 2023
BT11-064 Greymon (X Antibody) became a restricted card w.e.f 1 April 2023 and decks can only include 1 copy of this restricted card. The effect of reducing the cost when digivolving from this card to a Digimon that has [Greymon] in its name allows you to digivolve into [BT12-068 MetalGreymon] or [BT9-015 MetalGreymon (X Antibody)] too efficiently, accelerating the speed at which the deck reduces the opponent’s security and its comeback potential.
Additionally, this card’s inherited effect gives resistance to a number of effects, and overall increases the effectiveness of Greymon decks more than expected. Therefore, we have determined that this card narrows the range of viable decks in the format, and we have decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.
Restricted Cards Effective on 11 November 2022
- BT7-107 Calling from the Darkness – It became a restricted card w.e.f 1 November 2022 and decks can only include 1 copy of this restricted 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, it is decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.
- BT9-099 Sunrise Buster – 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.
- BT7-064 DoruGreymon – 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.
- BT10-009 Shoutmon X4 – 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 Effective on 1 August 2022
- BT7-038 JetSilphymon – 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.
- BT7-086 Tommy Himi – 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.
25 Feb 2022 Restricted Cards
- BT6-100 (Reinforcing Memory Boost) – 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.
- Ex1-068 (Ice Wall) – 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.
25 Feb 2022 Banned Cards
This 25 February banned card list includes BT 5-109 (Mega Digimon Fusion) 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.
Restricted Cards Effective at the time of BT-08 Release in your region
- BT6-015 (SaviorHuckmon) – 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.
- BT7-072 (Eyesmon) – 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, it is decided to restrict this card to 1 copy per deck.
Digimon has also been adapted into a series of video games across various platforms, including handheld consoles, home consoles, and mobile devices. These games often allow players to raise, train, and battle with their own Digimon, exploring virtual worlds and engaging in strategic combat. Over the years, Digimon has gained a dedicated fanbase worldwide and has continued to release new content and merchandise. The franchise has seen multiple reboots, spin-offs, and collaborations, keeping the Digimon spirit alive for both longtime fans and newcomers alike
