Vanguard's first restrictions since Barcgal was banned as Starting Vanguard has been released. Valid January 1, 2012 for the JAPANESE version only. It is unknown if it will be brought over and how soon the banhammer will hit.

With effect from the 1st of January 2013, for the Japanese version of Cardfight!! Vanguard, the cards in the following list will be restricted to up to a total of two cards in the deck (including the starting vanguard).

Restriction list for Japanese Vanguard
<Royal Paladin>
King of Knights, Alfred
Majesty Lord Blaster
Wingal Brave

Lizard Soldier, Conroe
Dragonic Overlord the End

<Oracle Think Tank>
Silent Tom
Godhawk, Ichibyoshi
Goddess of the Full Moon, Tsukuyomi

*This includes all cards of the same name with different rarities or arts.

King of Knights, Alfred x 2
Majesty Lord Blaster x 1,
Wingal Brave x 1
(This is OK because the TOTAL is two)

Not OK: Majesty Lord Blaster x 2,
Wingal Brave x 1
Not OK: Dragonic Overlord the End x 2,
Lizard Soldier, Conroe x 1

Barcgal still can not be used as the First Vanguard
This basically takes down the 3 big beat decks, Majesty Lord, The End, and Tsukuyomi. The fact that it's combined 2 makes it hurt even more, since you'll only be able to run 1 Majesty if you run Wingal Brave. Limiting The End also means that the ability will only be able to run once, and Tsukuyomi just got tanked with only being able to run 1 for the ride chain effectively.

Changes aside from running the cards in twos is probably that the Kagero and Royal starting vanguards will change to the Top 5 -> Grade 3 vanguards to help get a better search. For the Oracles, they get hit a little harder. For the ones not running Tsukuyomi, the hit is actually pretty good cuz Silent Tom is a pretty good card with it's defense denial. For those that are, I can see them running the first two parts of the chain for the deck stacking and maybe shifting to the Amaterasu and Sakuya.
