World Magic Cup Qualifier Promo: Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

I haven't been this excited for a promo in a long time! The new artwork is awesome; people will definitely be seeking these out to pimp out their Legacy and EDH decks! These promos are given out to participants in the World Magic Cup Qualifiers (invite only).

New Judge Promos

More promotional cards! These are given out as perks for being a Judge, without whom we couldn't run any tournaments! Damnation is interesting as it also is the next MOCS promo. Does this mean we're not seeing it in Modern Masters 2015?

Banned and Restricted Announcement

The Banned and Restricted list was updated without much fanfare. Treasure Cruise banned in Pauper, Skullclamp banned in 100 card singleton (which is not EDH if you're wondering).

EDH Rules Update

The EDH committee made a controversial rules update this week: no more tucking! If an effect would cause your commander to be placed into your library or hand, you may instead put it into the command zone. Read more about this change here.

Card is Commonly Played With <x>

We've launched a "Commonly Played with in <format>" section to our card pages. Check it out at the bottom of the Thoughtseize page.
