Dimensional Barrier:

Call one monster type (Ritual, Xyz, Synchro, Pendulum, Fusion) For the rest of this turn neither player can summon that kind of monster. And any monster of that type already on the field have their effects negated.

With the new link format of Yu-Gi-Oh, can this handy trap be used to stop the summoning of link monsters?

No you cannot use Dimensional Barrier on link monsters as this is the current text.

Call one monster type (Ritual, Xyz, Synchro, Pendulum, Fusion) For the rest of this turn neither player can summon that kind of monster. And any monster of that type already on the field have their effects negated.

Because it explicitly mentions monster card types, only the mentioned ones can be used. If the card didn’t explicitly mention certain types then you could have used it on link monsters (so taking out the part in brackets). So currently you cannot use dimensional Barrier on link monsters, unless Konami give the card an errata (rewording the card text).

    It better be reprinted. Link summons haven't fixed a thing, they have only made the game even more broken than it already is. – The rational duelist Dec 19 '17 at 6:18
  • It probably won’t be reprinted. The card is too powerful already, reprinting it to stop link summons would make it even more powerful. It’s highly unlikely – WhatsThePoint Dec 19 '17 at 6:56

    Seeing as how it comes in Structure Deck: Cyberse Link, I doubt it will be errata'd – Jon Milliken Dec 31 '17 at 22:26

    @JonMilliken it was even reprinted in the mega tins which came out a couple months ago, if it was going to be errata’d it would’ve been done by now – WhatsThePoint Dec 31 '17 at 22:56
  • It just shuts down every other monster type even more than the link rules already do. – Jon Milliken Dec 31 '17 at 22:58

Yes you can.

The key point is:

Call one monster type...

Maybe the card wording has not been updated to include Link monsters as some of the options, but surely they will soon (imagine all other cards that have to be updated in such way)

However as Link monsters are indeed a valid Monster Type you can go ahead and use it on them.

  • This is wrong. Yes link monsters are a monster type but they are not listed in the list explicitly mentioned on the card. – WhatsThePoint Dec 17 '17 at 20:40

    Well don't they plan to change that? Because Link monsters are pretty lethal now adays – The rational duelist Dec 18 '17 at 8:15

    @DarkCygnus it's a game where you have to take the literal cards effect, you can't just choose the way it works to suit yourself. From the reddit link i posted "Dimensional Barrier is PSCT, that means it uses clear and consistent wording. Those types in brackets aren't examples, those are the things you can choose. " – WhatsThePoint Dec 19 '17 at 8:16

    @Therationalduelist You are saying the following : You should buy a lottery ticket because they will probably pick your number. Thats not how something works... Your numbers have to be correct just like the summary on the card has to match the monster type. – Tomm Dec 19 '17 at 8:23

    The card also specifically EXCLUDES "normal", and "effect" – Jon Milliken Dec 31 '17 at 22:28
