Additions to the Banned/Limited Card List (February 2019)

Thank you for your continued support of the Dragon Ball Super Card Game.

We’ve released a few cards in the past to help counter Storm decks, which mount a blisteringly fast early game offense backed up by repeated card draw. These cards helped diminish Storm’s presence in the meta, leading to more deck variety and a healthier overall play environment.

However, Storm remains a very difficult archetype to beat if you’re not playing the necessary cards to counter it, a fact many players find quite stressful.

We’re also concerned about the negative experience new players will have when they encounter Storm decks for the first time. They may feel like the matchup is hopeless and stop playing the game.

As such, we’ve decided to add the following cards to the Banned/Limited Card List:

Banned Cards

Card number Card name
BT4-045 The Legendary Flute (previously limited)
P-062 Scrambling Assault Son Goten

Limited Cards

Card number Card name
BT2-044 Unyielding Spirit Trunks(limit 1 copy per deck)
BT2-086 Growing Evil Lifeform Cell(limit 1 copy per deck)

Growing Evil Lifeform Cell isn’t used in Storm decks, but we feel that it limits the design space for cards going forward.

We want to emphasize that our main reason for adding these cards to the list is to allow for the continued development of interesting cards for players to enjoy, and to focus attention on new cards and play strategies.

Ban/Limit Date: Effective Friday, February 1st, 2019

Applicable Areas: North America, Oceania, Asia, Europe (English/French), Central and Latin America.
