I mean pot of greed is banned and they the stardust dragon which is by far stronger.
And why did they ban graceful charity? You play the card (that means you waste 1 card) to draw 3 cards from which 2 you throw to the graveyard ...
Whether or not the game is balanced these days I can't say, I don't play anymore, but back when I did play the bans were all 100% justified. Pot of Greed is among the most broken over powered and horrendously balanced cards in any card game ever, its pure obscene advantage with zero downside.
Graceful charity was also obscenely powerful with no real downside (in fact the only thing that was supposed to give it any weakness at all, the discard part of it, is actually arguably the most powerful part of the card that eventually forced its banning). Even before dark world (though they truly break the card in ridiculous ways) the graveyard in yugioh is in many ways a second hand, depending on the cards you often rather have them in your discard then in your hand or deck, because of this there are cards purely for sending one of your own cards to the discard pile that saw lots of top level competitive play , and graceful sends 2 cards to the grave yard while drawing you 3 cards as well, like pot of greed there was no reason every deck ever made shouldn't include as many of them as they absolutely could.
Stardust dragon didn't exist when I played, so I don't know how broken he is or how he's effecting the meta, maybe he deserves a banning like Chaos Emperor Dragon and Black Luster Soldier got way back in the day, but whatever current balance problems they have don't justify cards like pot of greed or graceful being unbanned, they absolutely deserved the ban hammer.
