With the upcoming release of Commander theme decks next year, the
BANNED LIST UPDATES
Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is now banned.
|No more tentacle rape for you!|
Emrakul was warping games. And apparently if you built your deck right, it could come out multiple times in a game. If your local group hadn't already banned Emrakul, here's the official update proclaiming "no more!".
RULES UPDATE: "COLOR IDENTITY"
Previous to this update, Commanders had to only have the colors of their mana cost. This meant cards like Bosh, Iron Golem or Thelon of Havenwood couldn't be used as
Now, the "color identity" rule exists.
Along with a creature's mana cost, any costs and/or effects and/or any characteristic-defining abilities will determine the color(s) of a card (and more importantly, a Commander). (This does not include reminder text).
A few examples of potential Commanders this opens up: Memnarch; Bosh, Iron Golem; Thelon of Havenwood; Daughter of Autumn
|You know you've always wanted to build around her as a Commander. Admit it!|
If there are any other changes because of this rule, I'm oblivious since I don't keep up with EDH/Commander. If anyone out there has further implications of this rules change, feel free to post below.
Enjoy building your new Emrakul-free, "off-color" Commander decks! :)
