The March 9, 2020 Banned and Restricted announcement is live! Here's the full list of cards in every format.


Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is banned


The following cards are moved from suspended to banned:

Oko, Thief of Crowns

Once Upon a Time

Veil of Summer

The following cards are moved from suspended to legal:

Field of the Dead


Underworld Breach is banned


Once Upon a Time is banned

We should expect a significant metagame shakeup due to these changes, as well as significant drops on Underworld Breach and Once Upon a Time. It is notable that Heliod, Sun-Crowned and Walking Ballista were mentioned by name in the section regarding Pioneer's lack of changes, but it's not yet clear if we will see these banned in the future.

The bans take effect as follows:

Tabletop Effective Date: March 10, 2020

Magic Online Effective Date: March 10, 2020

MTG Arena Effective Date: March 12, 2020
