In an announcement that was expected, Field of the Dead has been banned in Historic. The land came off of the Suspended List in March but a bevy of new ramp spells have made its existence untenable in Arena‘s non-rotating format. As the trend of dominance is not likely to change, rather than another trip to the Suspended List Field is being banned outright. The ban is being done to bring diversity to the Historic metagame.
