The list that we have all been waiting for is finally here! The list can be viewed here.
Decks affected by the changes are Nerkoz, Burning Abyss, Shaddolls, Qliphort, and Ritual Beast.
Nekroz are no longer able to get free summons and get a search because Shurit is banned. Shurit is the what makes Nekroz the deck it is. They lose consistency with the limit of Nekroz of Brionac and Nekroz of Unicore.
Shaddolls lose Construct, Mathematician, and El Shaddoll Fusion. Dolls got hit hard they are no longer to OTK as easily as they have in the past. Expect them to run builds focused on El Shaddoll Shekhinaga.
Burning Abyss aren’t as powerful as they once were because Graff is limited and Cir is semi’d. I predict people that continue to play Burning Abyss will play builds with more Burning Abyss monsters. There is also no need for Dark Eruption since Dante can get your Burning Abyss back to hand.
Qliphort decks are done in my opinion, Scout to one just kills the deck. The hit to Towers isn’t a big deal because the deck is done.
