The latest update for competitive Yu-Gi-Oh! formats has just been published by Konami this Monday, 6th of February.

Cards Added to the List

New cards were added to the "Limited" and "Banned" categories, which means some were restricted to 1 copy in deck, and some cannot be used at all. This update hits the Tearlaments archetype quite heavily, and fans were left wondering if it will be enough to lower its power level. Around 10 cards were added:
