Here’s every forbidden and limited card in Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel


Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel has a list of forbidden and limited cards to help keep gameplay balanced and fair in ranked gameplay. If you’ve recently dived into Konami’s free-to-play card game, you’ll know that there are a ton of cards to choose from, with secret packs just one way of expanding your collection. Once you’re comfortable enough with the game’s mechanics to branch out from your original starter deck, you might be wondering which cards are banned or why such a system is in place. 

You might already be familiar with the concept of Yu-Gi-Oh ban lists—basically, if a card is deemed too powerful, it might be moved to this list to help maintain a competitive balance. It’s also worth noting that Master Duel specifically uses a custom list, separate from the TCG and OCG version. Like the original list, Master Duel’s forbidden and limited cards are likely to change in the future as new cards are added. 

So with all that in mind, here’s a list of all Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel forbidden and limited cards.
