News Round Up: Week of August 3

Here’s your look at the week in Magic news:

The week started off with the bang of the ban hammer. Several cards were banned in multiple formats while two cards were also added to the Historic Suspended list. The bans of Wilderness Reclamation, Teferi, Time Raveler, and Growth Spiral in Standard come a few weeks before they were set to rotate. Along with the removal of Cauldron Familiar, these bans are sure to change the face of Standard.

Pioneer is also sure to look drastically different as every top deck, as well as one ascending list, got hit. Underworld Breach, Inverter of Truth, Walking Ballista, and Kethis, the Hidden Hand were all banned.

That wasn’t all, of course. Teferi, Time Raveler was banned in Brawl and was joined by two cards in Tuesday’s Arena State of the Game. Runed Halo was added to the Brawl banned list, while it and Gideon’s Intervention were removed from Historic Brawl. The State of the Game announcement also detailed the release of Amonkhet Remastered.

Over on the Mothership, we heard about updates to the MTG Companion App.
