Changes in the Duel Commander banlist :
Here are the banlist changes for March 20th 2012.
– Grindstone is banned.
– Biorhythm is unbanned.
– Coalition Victory is unbanned.
– Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is unbanned.
– Kokusho, the Evening Star is unbanned.
– Limited Resources is unbanned.
– Metalworker is unbanned.
– Painter’s Servant is unbanned.
– Panoptic Mirror is unbanned.
– Sway of the Stars is unbanned.
– Upheaval is unbanned.
Here are the details about those changes.
Considering Multiplayer Commander and Duel Commander are different formats with different metagames and different patterns of play, we decided to unban most of the cards that were banned only because they were on the official Multiplayer Commander banlist.
This let us reintroduce cards that were not a threat to the format, like Coalition Victory, Limited Resources, Sway of the Stars or Kokusho, the Evening Star.
