I decided to make this its own topic so it would reach more people. My previous topic "Should anime cards be nerfed" went into great detail about cards that should be banned or limited, so check that out as it also concerns this topic! [:thumbu:]
As it currently stand when you host a duel you have 2 choices for a Forbidden list: the OCG list and the TCG list.
If you want to use anime cards, you can, however the ban list still applies.

Suppose you are an old school duelist and wants to use Pot of Greed? Your only choice is to use the option Don't Check Deck. This brings issues: people using an unlimited number of cards (x3 Graceful Charity, etc), or people using 6-card Exodia decks for an instant win [:thumdn:]

I believe we should have two new modes in addition to the two forbidden lists: Traditional format and Traditional Anime format. The first would be for people who only want to play with real cards, who also do not want to run into more than x1 copy of each banned card. Traditional format is a real format of Konami in fact. All banned cards become limited.

The latter would be for those who want x1 copy of each banned card, as well as a ban list for individual anime cards? In my previous topic we discussed whether or not we should ban certain anime cards. Consensus was leaning towards yes. A card like Chaos End Ruler is far to powerful, so that should be banned. If you still wanted to use it there would of course be the Traditional Anime mode or Don't Check Deck option.

Hopefully we can add these new formats as their own forbidden lists. I can't think of a reason not to. I myself have to use Don't Check Deck to use the cards I want. And its no fun when someone ignores my "Don't use an unlimited deck!" comment and joins with x3 Chaos End Rulers, x3 Raigeki, etc.

I also think we should ban and limit certain cards in anime mode. I doubt most people like encountering x3 Card of Sanctity (anime effect). Like I said in my previous topic, I don't think it would be to difficult to make a list. It seems like common sense that a card like anime-version Card of Demise, Roll of Fate, etc would be banned if they were real. As for limited and semi-limited cards? That's more debatable. Right now, the question is whether we should ban certain cards at the moment.

I agree with all of this, except full-on banning certain anime cards. I feel that it would kind of take away from the purpose of anime duels. Limiting some of them makes sense, though.

I certainly don't know why would you say no to this. Even if they implement anime banlist into the game, you can still not check deck and everything will be ok.

You should start with limiting every anime card except cards that require more copies for their effect to work like slash draw (semi-limit). If a card is banned in TCG list, it should stay banned. Anime cards should just be on top of the TCG list that currently exists. Hence, even the anime versions of the cards that are banned in TCG list should also be banned. Then, you should use common sense in deciding what is banned or not. In TCG, pot of greed is banned because it is a +1. So single cards that give free +1s obviously should also be banned with the same reasoning like cards of sanctity. Now, there are combos that can give you +1s but that is not a single card by itself is it? I mean only single cards. The same thing for -1s to opponent, delinquent duo is banned in TCG because of -1 to your opponent. Using the same reasoning that konami uses to make TCG list is the reasoning that should be used here.

You should use these two rules to decide what is banned and what is not instead of popular opinion because this is logical reasoning. This will lead to less controversy and the list you end up with will be a fair list if you do it this way. However, I know that some people love to play with all cards unlimited and not banned, in that case, you can make a separate list for those that don't want anything banned, but for those of us that want a fair duel, this is the best way to approach it.
