Dig Through Time
Doing more than drawing two cards for a total mana cost of 8 is not a thing that should be tolerated already, regarding the format. Yet, doing so among a choice of seven cards, at instant speed, makes this card even less acceptable. Even when played in decks where allowing the 6-mana delve alternative casting cost payment is quite hard, doing so for 8-5 mana still ain’t really acceptable. Dig Through Time is therefore banned.
The changes from today’s rules and bans updates aim at partially correcting this problem, so as to reverse the “immobilism trend” that our favourite format is now going through.
That's it! Your files should now be unlocked. If they're not in a format you like (some may become MOBI files, others AZW8), you can right-click, choose Convert books, Convert individually , then change them over to something like EPUB.
Each year, four Magic sets are released and added to Standard. Those sets are grouped into two-set blocks (For example: Shadows over Innistrad and Eldritch Moon are a block). Once per year, when the first set of the second block releases, the two oldest blocks in Standard rotate out.
Since our last update in January quite a lot of things have changed for Duel Commander. The metagame kept evolving and rotating slightly towards Partner commanders, playing all colours and deck types. Aggressive decks also became top tier strategies, with mono-red or red-white decks taking over. Control decks continue to be powerful as well. Wizards also recently announced support for 6v6 Commander games on MTGO. While it is not officially support as Duel Commander, everyone is excited for their future announcements to see how Duel games will be supported by WOTC going forward.

Regarding Necrotic Ooze, we keep an eye on this card, which is the core of an extremely non-interactive combo. We chose to balance the format using commander cards rather than specific, individual, non-commander cards (which would require an overly high amount of banned cards).
Jenara, Asura of War
Jenara, Asura of War is another green commander with a high impact on games, that costs three mana, and can also enter the battlefield on turn two for the same reasons we already mentionned regarding other cards alike. Jenara, Asura of War is another case of commander that is very well adapted to play a large amount of counterspell-like cards. It belongs therefore to the two categories we described up above: blue decks and green decks. We decided to add this card to the watchlist for those reasons.
