Excelling in the world of collectible gaming cards, Star City Games is offering guidance to players regarding the latest banned and restricted cards announced by the Wizards of the Coast.

With the recent announcement of the latest banned and restricted cards by the Wizards of the Coast, Star City Games is guiding players while encouraging players to feel confident in their gameplay, particularly in the Standard format.

"Wizards of the Coast Cards recently announced of the upcoming banning of Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath in the Classic, Frontier, and Commander formats, as well as traditional Pauper and Modern, an update to the basic cascade rules will come into effect. With the change, there will be no more Tibalt, Cosmic Impostor late game, as well as Vivid Creek Flashback cards in Eternal. This announcement is obviously going to have a major effect on the Standard format since a lot of the decks are going to have to change up the way they play," says Nick Miller, Author at Star City Games. He further added, "For those of you that might have been feeling like WotC is getting a heavy hand from the recent bans, you'll be happy to know that many of the recent changes were made with a response to the community, as well as to adapt to frustrations and complaints about the formats as they stand today. The result is that you'll be seeing a lot of Magic the gathering cards being banned for being used in a dominant position going back to the shelves."

For the Standard players, this is going to have a major impact on their strategies, particularly if they play any of the cards banned for their dominating role in formats like Modern. "Many players have already stated growing frustration with the current competitive Standard experience. They view it as both being too slow, as well as too fast, which can be a recipe for a disaster when the format is trying to cater to both competitive and casual crowds," shares Miller.

Furthermore, the Wizards of the Coast's alteration is also introducing a new set of rules for the basic cascade mechanic in Eternal formats is due to the fallout of the deck's consistent ability to produce Tibalt, Cosmic Impostor on the second turn, unopposed. He assured, "This definitely helps to curb what many players are feeling like the broken graveyard interactions in Eternal formats. Few players are going to miss Tibalt, Cosmic Impostor, but this change will certainly mean that many players are going to have to learn and practice the classic Eternal spells and formats again."
