For those that don’t know, the Yugioh ban list is a list of all cards that are not allowed to be used in a tournament-setting duel. This also includes a list of limited cards (only one is allowed per deck) and semi-limited cards (two allowed). While I agree with most of the selections for this list, there are some inclusions that I just cannot fathom. One specifically, as per the title, is Destiny Hero Disc Commander. Help me answer this question: why is Disc Commander banned?
Disk Commander is a level one weakling with 300 attack and defense points. The reason it’s banned is due to its (supposed) broken effect: when Disk Commander is special summoned, its user gets to draw two cards. I could see why Disk Commander would be banned if it was able to form an infinite loop with another card, like Magician of Faith can. For Disk Commander to become broken, someone would need to use a deck stacked with revival cards, like Limit Reverse and Premature Burial. However, such a deck would turn Disk Commander’s ability moot: what’s the point of having draw power when your deck most consists of revival cards.
Most of the cards in the banned list can be over-powered, whether through a combo (Magician of Faith) or individually (Chaos Emperor Dragon). Disk Commander is part of neither of these groups. There are so many other cards that are worthy of inclusion in the banned list, like Number 16: Shock Master. Even banned list alumnus Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning is more deserving of being banned.
Tell me what you think is the reason for Disk Commander being banned.
