March 2014 V-Jump News Explosion

Although I don't usually cover too much OCG news, the last issue of V-Jump over in Japan had a lot of really interesting things in it, many of which will be directly relevant to the TCG later this year. I don't know what issue of V-Jump this actually is (April? May?), so I'm just going to title it March since that's when it came out. The source for each of these stories is (, except where noted otherwise. Here are brief synopses of the most important things:

1. April 1, 2014 OCG Banlist Confirmed

Newly Banned: 2
Wind-Up Hunter
Ultimate Offering

Newly Limited: 5
Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos
Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders
Tidal, Dragon Ruler of Waterfalls
Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms
Wind-Up Carrier Zenmaity

Newly Semi-Limited: 2
Dark Armed Dragon
Sacred Sword of Seven Stars

Newly Unlimited: 3
Tour Guide from the Underworld
Dark Strike Fighter
Torrential Tribute

Not too relevant to those of us in the TCG (thankfully), but it looks like the OCG finally got around to definitively dealing with Dragon Rulers. Sadly, it's impossible for me to comment more substantively as a TCG player since by this point our formats have diverged quite a bit.

2. New "The Duelist Advent" Spoilers

Here's a quick list of all of the new DUEA reveals. This list does not include The Agent of Death - Uranus, because I'm pretty sure he wasn't in this issue of V-Jump.

004 Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon
008 Entermate Discover Hippo
009 Entermate Kaleidoscorpion
010 Entermate Tiptoad
028 Fire Dragonstar Shungei
029 Earth Dragonstar Heikan
032 Light Dragonstar Rifun
049 Elshadoll Nephilim
051 Shining Dragonstar Shoufuku
055 Hippo Carnival
059 Shadoll Fusion
073 Shadoll Roots
??? Shadoll Falcon

It should be noted that this batch of spoilers revealed the introduction of the game's 22nd Monster Type, currently translated as Legendary Dragon-Type.

3. Dark Strike Fighter Errata Update

In addition to the once per turn change I reported on before, it's now confirmed to be limited to use in your Main Phase 1 only.

4. Dragons of Legend Spoilers

You've probably heard by now that the OCG gets its own version of Dragons of Legend, due out on May 17. A few of the cards that were spoiled for this release actually haven't been shown yet for the TCG, so these are brand-new spoilers:

Legendary Knight Timaeus (kind of a given, but hey)
Berserker Soul
Shooting Star
Instant Polymerization
Rising Sun Slash

5. June V-Jump Promos

Entermate Silver Claw
Junk Anchor
Primitive Butterfly
