Yu gi oh cards
The Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game is known for its vast array of powerful cards that can turn the tide of a duel in an instant. These cards, while they may no longer see play in official settings, are still remembered for their overwhelming power and game-changing effects. Here's a countdown of the 10 most powerful Yu-Gi-Oh! cards that have been banned from competitive play.

Yu Gi Oh players hate two kinds of people the most. One is the opponent that makes me play hard, and the other is the kind that doesn’t let me make him play hard.
Banned Yu Gi Oh cards represent this type (otherwise, why would they be banned?)Next, this article will introduce 10 Yu Gi Oh cards. See if there are any cards you like.
Tips: The price of a collection can change a lot depending on how rare it is, how good it is, how much people want it, and other market factors. So it’s hard to give a price as a point of comparison. You can check by going to Amazon, TGC Player, Cardmarket, etc.

What Is a Banned Card in Yu Gi Oh Cards?

Some cards are banned because they cause too much pain to the player. These cards are too powerful and seriously affect the balance of the game. At the time, no other Yu Gi Oh cards could counter it.
The list of banned cards will be updated twice a year, on March 1 and September 1. According to changes in the game environment, some cards will be unblocked at the right time.
We picked ten cards from the banned Yu Gi Oh cards list. Let’s get to know them.

Pot of Greed

Ban time: “Pot of Greed” entered the banned Yu Gi Oh cards list on March 1, 2006.
This card is a favorite among all players. Its effect is very simple: draw two cards.
In Yu-Gi-Oh Cards, there are a lot of cards with card-drawing effects, but usually with some restrictions. This one is different. It has no cost or limit on the number of times. You can put it in almost any deck.

Lavalval Chain

Yu Gi Oh Cards/ Lavalval Chain

Ban time: “Lavalval Chain” entered the banned Yu Gi Oh cards list on April 1, 2014. It’s not lifted yet.

This card takes a weird and changeable route. It can be part of different Combos. If used properly, your opponents will be in for a headache

Victory Dragon

Yu Gi Oh Cards/ Victory Dragon

Ban time: “Victory Dragon” entered the banned Yu Gi Oh cards list on March 1, 2006, and was lifted on September 1, 2006.
At that time, Yu Gi Oh was a 3-game, 2-win system. This card can force a single victory to be converted into a global victory.
Since the second World Series of Yu-Gi-Oh in 2004, for the first time, there have been prize cards in the true sense—or viewing cards. This card cannot be used in a Duel.
Tips: Since then, World Series winners have been given card sets based on the “Victory Dragon,” a deck that can’t win against itself. This has been the case for a long time now.

Makyura The Destructor

Yu Gi Oh Cards/ Makyura The Destructor

As long as this card is sent to the graveyard, the trap card can be used as a magic card. With the help of some strong trap cards, this card’s main deck hit a 90% kill rate in the first round.
Before even starting to operate, the game is over.
Tips: Trap card effects are usually strong. Before a trap card can be used, it has to meet certain conditions during the opponent’s turn.

Magical Scientist

Yu Gi Oh Cards/ Magical Scientist

Catapult turtle

The effect of the card looks balanced. But look at another card. They perfectly interpret 1+1>2. Even though you have to pay 1000 LP to use the effect, there is no cost as long as you beat the opponent directly.
Tips: The initial LP of each player is 8000. When LP goes to zero, the player loses the game.

Delinquent Duo

Yu Gi Oh Cards/ Delinquent Duo

With only 1000LP, you can make your opponent lose two cards. There is no limit to the number of times this card can be used. Opponents will be very uncomfortable after losing their hand cards.

Time Seal

Yu Gi Oh Cards/ Time Seal

Ban time: “Time Seal” entered the banned Yu Gi Oh cards list on 2006/03/01 and lifted the ban on 2022/09/30.
This card can make the opponent skip the card draw stage, which is very hopeless. If you play this card when you are ahead, it will be hard for your opponent to catch up.
Tips: Each player can draw a card at the start of the turn.

The Forceful Sentry

Yu Gi Oh Cards/ The Forceful Sentry

The two effects of this card alone are not too much. But put them together. It’s terrifying. Because each player’s deck is set in advance, this card can check the opponent’s progress and disrupt the rhythm.
Imagine that when you’re waiting to play a combo on your next turn. Your opponent played a “Delinquent Duo” and took away your key cards. What will be the expression on your face?

Painful Choice

Yu Gi Oh Cards/ Painful Choice

At first glance, this card seems like it could be more powerful—even a bit miserable. The opponent chooses the card given to us, and four cards must be sent to the graveyard.
However, Yu Gi Oh has a type of card deck that uses cards in the graveyard to fight. This turns the “painful choice” into a “painful choice for the opponent.” Your opponent will reluctantly pick a card they least want you to use and send four cards to your Armory.

Chaos Emperor Dragon – Envoy of the End

Yu Gi Oh Cards/ Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End

Ban time: “Chaos Emperor Dragon – Envoy of the End” entered the banned Yu Gi Oh card list on 2004/09 and was lifted on 2015/01. Its effect is also modified when unbanned.
If the last card’s effect is hard to understand, this card’s effect is clear, easy, and strong. It breaks up all the sets that the opponent has worked so hard to make and does damage based on how many sets are broken up.
The greater the opponent’s advantage, the more powerful this card will be.

The end

Every ban card is not innocent when it gets banned. Every time banned Yu Gi Oh cards appear, the player feels both pain and happiness. The game is balanced, with banned cards coming and going over time.

But the memories they brought us are still very deep; maybe this is the charm of the Yu Gi Oh cards.
