Are Duel Terminal cards allowed in tournaments?
If you're set to play in a Yu-Gi-Oh! tournament, Duel Terminal versions are not allowed to be used during gameplay, except when they are available from some other method, such as finding one in a hidden arsenal set or within a Yu-Gi-Oh! booster pack. One clear example of a legal usage of a Duel Terminal monster, spell, or trap is when you receive an X-Saber Wayne in a starter deck.
Who owns Yu-Gi-Oh!?
The Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game is officially owned, developed, and published by Konami, a Japanese entertainment company. The game itself was developed by Konami in accordance with the Japanese manga by the same name and was modeled after a Duel Monsters concept taken directly from the manga. This game was developed and initially released in 1998. Since then, a slew of additional monsters and spells have been released. The more powerful and useful a card is, the rarer it can be to find in a starter deck. Players who engage in a battle against other players will need to use a combination of spells, monsters, and traps if they want to defeat their opponent.
