Valid during January 1st, 2018 0:00 CET until March 30nd, 2018 24:00 CET.

Cards on the following list will be closely observed and are potential candidates for a banning on April 15th, 2018.

Back to Basics  
Blood Moon  
Demonic Tutor
Dig Through Time
Entomb
Imperial Seal
Mana Drain
Oath of Druids
Stoneforge Mystic *New*
Tainted Pact
Tolarian Academy
Treasure Cruise
Yawgmoth's Will
                                              

Cards from the following list are still banned but will be under testing for a potential unbanning on April 15th, 2018.

Birthing Pod *New*
Gifts Ungiven *New*


Reasonings:

Stoneforge Mystic:

Stoneforge Mystic has been unbanned eight months ago and has been tested in many games. It proved itself as still be viable but not outsstanding or even formatdefining. The community feedback has backed up this impression so this card won't be closer observed anymore.


Birthing Pod:

We rediscussed Birthing Pod and the predominant feedback of the community was that this every-turn-repeatable tutor with great combo-potential is not be welcome currently. So we decided to stop observing Birthing Pod for an unban in the next months.


Gifts Ungiven:

There are currently discussions concerning the „weakest“ cards on the banned list and a big part of the community thinks Gifts Ungiven is definitely a candidate which should be observed and discussed thoroughly in terms of their potential impact on the format . It has been banned in 2012. Since then Gifts Ungiven was an on/off-candidate for unban-watchlist and therefore always on the edge. The community feedback gave the deciding pulse to add Gifts Ungiven to watchlist again. Please let us know how you judge a potential unban.
