Hi folks,

I have checked a German card game forum and one of the users who is very well informed of the OCG has posted some interesting rumors. According to snake, the upcoming January OCG list will be quite revolutionary in terms of changes: many powerful cards like Chaos Emperor Dragon, Exchange of the Spirit and Ring of Destruction are expected to return to the game with errata. In fact, there were so many changes that snake could not post all changes, so the following list is not complete:

NEW FORBIDDEN:

Heavy Storm

NEW LIMITED:

Blaze Fenix the Burning Bombardment Bird
Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End (with Errata)
Exchange of the Spirit (mit Errata)
Harpie's Feather Duster
Instant Fusion
Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands
Preparation of Rites
Senju of the Thousand Hands
Sinister Serpent (with Errata)
Super Polymerization
Symbol of Heritage
Temple of the Kings (with Errata)
The Necloth of Unicore

NEW SEMI-LIMITED:

Atlantean Dragoons
Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Rooster
Inzektor Hornet
Monster Gate
Number 11: Big Eye

NEW UNLIMITED:

A Hero Lives
Chronomaly Nebra Disk
Evilswarm Ophion
Hieratic Symbol of Convocation
Lonefire Blossom
Ojama Trio
T.G. Striker
Tragoedia

Again, this list is not confirmed but due to snake being a rather accurate source of OCG list changes, it cannot be ruled out as mere rumors. Until confirmation or refutation, that is.
So in case this is really the direction the OCG is going, how do you feel about it? Do you agree with bringing back old cards with Errata or are you sceptical of this process?

EDIT: Forget to add the source (for those of you speaking German at least :P)

Oh OCG, you so crazy. For all the hate the TCG formats get, it's times like this that make me happy to play under it.

And hitting Necloths so soon? Not that I'm against hitting them, but... maybe one of these years Konami Japan will finally learn how to create a balanced archetype that doesn't require emergency hits for the next format.

And also: Serpent does not need an errata, it's a bad enough card as it currently is.

What's next, errata'ing Pot of Greed to draw only 1 card?

They'll ban Heavy Storm but unban CED.

Yep I'm calling penguins.

Yeah I had already seen the unconfirmed suposed OCG list...

My first though on it was:
Yeah, Heavy Storm is now banned.. The OCG will finally feel what we feel in the TCG...

Then I saw Harpie's Feather Duster to 1 and i was like:
Oh come on! its like if they banned dark hole and then freed raigeki on the same list....

I don't know for sure though, but what I have heard is that Harpie's Feather Duster is also getting an errata...
All this erratas make me think what will the game become eventually.

If this is real, Errata changes also affect the TCG, so expect big changes soon in the TCG as well. Maybe not in the next TCG ban list, but soon

I wonder, do players who play IRL have to buy the new cards every time the errata is updated? I'm glad I don't have to do that in ygopro.

Officially all cards with any version of errata can be used, as long as they're played using the latest errata.

You have to play the latest errata'd version of a card in a tournament if it has one.

Wonder what kind of errata can fix CED...

I hope the Harpie's Feather Duster errata will be:
If you control a face-up "Harpie" card: Destroy all Spell and Trap Cards your opponent controls.

Penguin this errate seel. Nerfing cards? Ha.
Well, as long as the old versions of those awesome banned cards remain on this game.
(Or else call them the anime versions of the card, which they would be except for crush card)

Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End
DARK/Dragon - Effect/8/3000/2500
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must be Special Summoned (from your hand) by banishing 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK monster from your Graveyard, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. During the turn you activate this card’s effect, you cannot activate other effects. (1) Once per turn: You can pay 1000 LP; send all cards on the field and in both players’ hands to the Graveyard, then inflict 300 damage to your opponent for each of your opponent’s cards sent by this effect.

Crush Card Virus
Normal Trap
(1) Tribute 1 DARK monster you control with 1000 or less ATK; check your opponent’s hand and all monsters they control, and destroy all monsters with 1500 or more ATK, then, your opponent can destroy up to 3 monsters with 1500 or more ATK from their Deck. After you activated this card, all damage your opponent takes for the rest of this turn becomes 0.

Exchange of the Spirit
Normal Trap
You can only activate 1 “Exchange of the Spirit” per Duel. (1) If each player has 15 or more cards in their Graveyard: Pay 1000 Life Points; both players swaps cards in their Decks with cards in their Graveyards, then shuffle the Decks.

Ring of Destruction
Normal Trap
You can only activate 1 “Ring of Destruction” per turn. (1) During your opponent’s turn: Target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls whose ATK is lower than or equal to your opponent’s LP; destroy that face-up monster, and if you do, you take damage equal to that monster’s original ATK, and if you do that, inflict damage to your opponent equal to the damage you took.

Sinister Serpent
WATER/Reptile - Effect/1/300/250
You can only use the effect of “Sinister Serpent” once per turn. (1) During your Standby Phase, if this card is in your Graveyard: Add this card to your hand. During your opponent’s next End Phase, banish 1 “Sinister Serpent” from your Graveyard.

Temple of the Kings
Continuous Spell
You can only use 1 “Temple of the Kings” effect per turn, and only once that turn. (1) You can activate 1 Trap Card you control during the turn it is Set. (2) You can send both this card and 1 face-up “Mystical Beast Serket” to the Graveyard; Special Summon 1 monster from your hand or Deck, or 1 Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck.

Well, not a bad job that has been done here. Aside from Sinister Serpent which could have gone to 3 regardless of errata.



Konami's doing a horrible nerfing compared to what I do. This is just ridiculous.
Steel, will these errata's be applied in the next update? Please answer so I could create a uh... "(ZEXAL)" pre-errataed effects?
Now this is how I play:
