Deck Construction Rules

1. Standard
Standard is a construction rule that allows, by default, all card that are on sale, as well as all promotional cards that have been distributed.
1.1 Certain cards may be designated in a section titled "Rules Regarding Limitations on Card Usage" later in this document that restrict the number of copies of those cards that can be used in a Standard deck.

2. Side-Limited
Side-Limited is a construction rule that only allows either Weiβ-Side cards or Schwarz-Side cards to be used.
2.1 Side-Limited Construction is separated into three classifications:
2.1.1 Side-Choice Construction
A construction rule that allows each player to make his or her own choice of Weiβ-Side or Schwarz-Side and constructs a deck using only cards from the chosen side.
2.1.2 Weiβ-Side-Only Construction
A construction rule that only allows cards from Weiβ-Side to be used.
2.1.3 Schwarz-Side-Only Construction
A construction rule that only allows cards from Schwarz-Side to be used.
2.2 Certain cards may be designated in a section titled "Rules Regarding Limitations on Card Usage" later in this document that restrict the number of copies of those cards that can be used in a Side-Limited deck.
2.3 The exception applied to "Exception Cards" does not function under Side-Limited rule.

3. Neo-Standard
Neo-Standard is a construction rule that allows each player to select one Title and construct a deck using only cards from the chosen Title.
3.1 Certain cards may be designated in a section titled "Rules Regarding Limitations on Card Usage" later in this document that restrict the number of copies of those cards that can be used in a Neo-Standard deck.
3.2 Cards designated as "Exception Cards" are allowed in different decks regardless of the Title chosen for each deck.

4. Title-Specific
Title-Specific is a construction rule that only allows cards from a pre-determined Title to be used in deck construction.
4.1 Certain cards may be designated in a section titled "Rules Regarding Limitations on Card Usage" later in this document that restrict the number of copies of those cards that can be used in a Title-Specific deck.
4.2 The exception applied to "Exception Cards" does not function under Title-Specific rule.

5. Other Information
5.1 Cards that have multiple Set IDs as well as cards designated as Exception Cards are allowed in different decks regardless of Title chosen.
5.2 Cards have the same name but different Set IDs cannot be used in each other's place.
Example: SK/WE05-27 (小川で遊ぼう!) has the same name as DC/W01-E18 (小川で遊ぼう!), but cannot be used in a Da Capo-only deck.
