They just aren't allowed in any official competition. Nothing stops you from using them elsewhere, unless there are rules against them implemented there. We can't know that here though.

"Swishonk!" That's what's happening!

In real-world decks, as SandaledOtter said, they're not allowed in any sanctioned tournaments.  That silver/gray border, and players' signatures is a dead giveaway.


I've always thought they were a good buy regardless.


1.  They're a great way to teach someone, or practice, with a complete deck that's a true winner.


2.  They're good proxies at League or fun play when you don't own some of the expensive cards.


3.  They can help if your opponent is playing cards (when allowed in tournaments) from another language.


Q. Can a World Championship deck card be used as a local language reference?
A. Yes, it can be used. The card is not being played in a deck, it is being used as a reference. (Feb 3, 2005 PUI Rules Team)


P.S.  Before everybody and their brother was "net decking," they were a solid choice for getting good deck ideas and lists.  The little pamphlet that's included was worth the purchase alone.  Obviously, that's not so important these days, but we get virtual sleeves, deck box, and coin for Online use (included code card), so it's a fair tradeoff.
