Some big changes coming to Standard January 20th!
Reflector Mage, Emrakul, and Smuggler’s Copter banned
While this will be a bitter pill for many, this should be a great refresher for a format that had gotten bogged down. With a rotation not happening until September/October WotC probably felt they needed some significant bans for the long term health of the format in 2017.
In Modern we see the ban of Gitaxian Probe and Golgari Grave-Troll.
Dredge had warped Modern play significantly in the past 6 months.
