MTG’s next Standard ban list reportedly leaks early but it looks too good to be true

The leaked list hits every card on the hot seat.

The Magic: The Gathering community has been left questioning a leaked list of cards supposedly getting banned on May 29 for the annual Banned & Restricted announcement after eight Standard cards were mentioned in a May 22 file dump.

Wizards of the Coast is changing how Standard rotation works in MTG, extending a card’s legality from two years to three starting this Fall. The purpose of the change is to allow players additional time with the cards in Standard and to revive the format at a local game store level for both casual and competitive players.

According to the leaked Standard ban list, which was posted by one Reddit user that reportedly obtained it from the B&R website backend, cards like Wedding Announcement, Plaza of Heroes, and Raffine, Scheming Seer are getting banned alongside cards everyone assumed were in the firing lineFable of the Mirror-Breaker and Invoke Despair. Also on the list were Reckoner Bankbuster, Atraxa, Grand Unifier, and The Wandering Emperor.
