August 1st, 2022 – Watch List Changes
Changes to the present watch list, effective 15/08/2022:
• Mind Twist
• Oath of Druids
• Oko, Thief of Crowns
• Urza's Saga
• Birthing Pod *New*
• Underworld Breach • Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath
Because we are testing Birthing Pod for an unban we are putting the card on the unban watchlist.
If we decide not to unban Birthing Pod after evaluating its trial period, we will remove it from the watchlist again.
The following card will be unbanned from August 15th till November 1st 2022.(It will be default banned at that date unless it specifically gets unbanned):
Single card explanation:
The discussion about this card is going on for quite a while, and we think currently the Format is in a pretty good shape, with a lot of divers decks. Therefore, we think it is a good time to shake up the format a bit and try out cards that might not be as broken/influencing anymore as they were when they were banned. This time we want to test out Birthing Pod for 3 month to see how it performs.
To further improve the format and gain valuable information we need your input, worries and opinions on these changes and views on the format. Do not hesitate to contact any of us via private message or just start a topic in the forum.
