Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel NR Festival banlist and rewards revealed

The Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel NR Festival banlist and rewards have been revealed, and it looks like the card game's working hard to cut grinding and self-damage

Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel NR Festival banlist: An El Shaddoll Construct is played

Konami has now confirmed the Yu-Gi-Oh: Master Duel NR Festival banlist and rewards, and the devs weren’t kidding about cracking down on the self-defeating decks that dominated the previous XYZ event. In a new in-game update, the full list of forbidden and limited cards has been unveiled, and if you don’t feel like scrolling through a zillion menus to find it, we’ve got the full list.

It’s looking like there’ll be much less grinding here, too, as all gem rewards – a total of 2,300 gems – will be obtainable with 10,000 medals. Legacy packs will be awarded every 1,000 medals up to the apparent cap of 20,000. You will earn medals whether you win, lose, or draw, but we don’t know how many medals each match will earn you. Konami adjusted the medal rewards multiple times during the XYZ event, both to combat self-defeat decks and to allay players’ complaints about the length of the grind.

The full name of this event is the N and R Rarity Festival, and as that title suggests, all SR and UR cards have been banned. Much of the rest of the banlist is dedicated to stamping out self-damage cards.

Here’s the full list.
