Announcement Date: March 11, 2024


No changes

Effective Date: March 11, 2024

The list of all banned and restricted cards, by format, is here.


The Legacy format has changed slightly since we last checked in, mainly with the inclusion of Broadside Bombardiers in both Goblins and Red Prison decks. Control, combo, and tempo decks in addition to these updated red decks all jockey for position at the top of the metagame, giving players plenty of options to choose.

Orcish Bowmasters has crept into many of the macro-strategies, featured in Delver of Secrets tempo variants, Sultai Control, and Reanimator. While the play rate of Orcish Bowmasters isn’t quite at the level of format staples like Brainstorm, Ponder, and Force of Will, it is something we’re keeping an eye on. For the time being, we’re happy with the fact that many different decks can win at the top levels of Legacy.

Legacy is in a good spot at the moment. There are many decks floating around now. There is not a single oppressing deck that makes it a must ban. The only 2 cards I saw that would have potentially be banned was Oricsh bow masters and grief.  Seems like these two cards are helping keep the format balanced. So we will have to wait and see what happens with the new sets coming out.
