Valid during July 1st, 2015 0:00 CET until October 14th, 2015 24:00 CET.

Changes to the present list, effective 7/15/2015:

Watchlist:

     * Fastbond
     * Oath of Druids
     * Tolarian Academy

Unban-Watchlist:

     * Natural Order
     * Stoneforge Mystic

Single card explanations:

Watchlists have not changed since the last announcement on April 1st, nor the reasonings behind them.

Other changes:

Scry-1 Mulligan:

For those who are unaware, Wizards have announced they are planning to experiment with a new mulligan rule for the upcoming Pro Tour Origins. If the experiment is successful, the new mulligan rule will be incorporated into the core rules of the game.

At the moment, the official mulligan that Highlander Magic adheres to, is known as Free Mulligan and is based on the multiplayer mulligan, also described in the Comprehensive Rules, 103.4c.

If the new scry 1 mulligan is to be taken into use by Wizards, then the comprehensive rules will be rewritten, which means there's a high probability that rule subsection 103.4c is also affected.

Most of the highlander players are more seasoned than regular players and will be able to handle the rules changes coming alongside the mulligan change. Players are therefore encouraged to experiment with the new mulligan.

Since we have been streamlining the Highlander rules closer to the official rules over the past years, we are seeing this as a welcome opportunity to be proactive and test the new Scry-1 mulligan - at least until Wizards decides whether to incorporate it into the core rules or not.

Starting July 1st, players may use the new Scry-1 mulligan if the tournament organizer permits and announced it before the tournament takes place.

Basically you would mulligan like this:

7
7 again (Free Mulligan)
6 + Scry 1
5 + Scry 1
4 + Scry 1
3 + Scry 1
2 + Scry 1
1 + Scry 1
0 + Scry 1

We would like to hear your feedback on how the Scry 1 Mulligan performs for you and if you liked it or not.

Clarification concerning order of mulligan-decisions:

You are only allowed to scry once you have decided to keep your hand.

E.g.
7 -> Keep: no, free Mulligan
7 -> Keep: no, Mull to 6
6 -> Keep: yes, Scry one

or
6 -> Keep: no, Mull to 5
5 -> Keep: yes, Scry one
