Banned Card

A banned card in the collection browser

Banned cards are cards that cannot be played in certain formats. Magic: The Gathering Arena follows the ban list of paper Magic since the patch on June 7, 2018 (Kaladesh block update).[1] With the half-ban of Nexus of Fate on February 14, 2019 there are cards in Magic Arena which are banned in certain formats but not in tabletop Magic.[2]


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.[2]

Banned and Restricted List Edit
