Banned cards can still be crafted after a ban, but are only playable in the permitted formats. Players are compensated with Wildcards after a ban.
Banned and Restricted List Edit
These cards are currently banned:
|Oko, Thief of Crowns||Mythic||Throne of Eldraine||Brawl, Standard and Traditional Standard|
|Once Upon a Time||Rare||Throne of Eldraine||Standard and Traditional Standard|
|Veil of Summer||Uncommon||Core Set 2020||Standard and Traditional Standard|

| Angelic Reward|
Confront the Assault
|Arena Only||Traditional Standard and Traditional Historic|
|Serra Angel||Uncommon||Arena Only/Dominaria|| Traditional Standard|
Note: Serra Angel is technically a reprint from Dominaria changing it into a playable card in Traditional Historic although Arena Only are usually not playable in Traditional formats.
Note: The cards from the Arena Only set were never announced as banned (citation needed). They can simply not be selected in the Deck Builder if the deck is marked for a Traditional format.

Cards which prove to be too impactful can receive a permanent ban. Since suspension is only temporary, players won't get Wildcards as compensation for suspended cards in their collection.
Currently (December 2019) suspended cards are:
