BANNED AND RESTRICTED

1 - Reminder

You can’t have any of these following cards in a Duel Commander game.

This is in addition to points 2) and 3) in this document.

  • Only cards that are playable in sanctioned Magic The Gathering formats are legal in Commander, and, therefore, in Duel Commander.

  • That excludes special border cards like:

    • Gold-bordered cards (World Events promo cards / ...)

    • Silver-bordered cards (Unhinged / Unglued / Unstable / Holiday cards / ...)

    • Scroll-looking cards that like Conspiracies.

    • Square-cornered cards (Collector’s Edition / ...)

    • Oversized and other miscellaneous cards such as Planechase Planes, Archenemy Schemes, Vanguard cards, Helvault cards, etc.

  • That also excludes the cards that use the “Ante” word :

  • That also excludes physical abilitiescards that are Falling Star and Chaos Orb.

  • The fast subgame card (which is not an effect, but is a real card) Shahrazad is also excluded.

  • Also, this implies cards marked offensive by Wizards of the Coast. Click here for the list. This list is a work in progress.


2 - Cards banned as a commander only (yet still playable in a deck)

These cards can’t be your commander, but are still allowed in your 98-99 cards in your decklist.
This is in addition to points 1) and 3) in this document.


3 - Banned cards (any listed zone)

You can’t have any of these cards in a Duel Commander game, in any zone of the game.
This is in addition to points 1) and 2) in this document.
