And Then There Was One...
This past Monday my social media feed exploded with talks of the latest update to the official DCI banned and restricted list. The only format to see any changes was Vintage, and of course that makes me feel very special! All kidding aside, I'm thrilled that Wizards of the Coast is paying more attention to Vintage. There was once a period where nothing was restricted or unrestricted in Vintage for several years, and while that's great in some ways it also indicates a lack of concern for the format's well-being. With that said, let's take a minute to break down the official announcement.
Monastery Mentor is restricted
Thorn of Amethyst is restricted
Yawgmoth's Bargain is unrestricted
