It’s In Development time again, and this week, well, it’s all about the ban.
Actually, it’s all about the aftermath of the ban. Now that the Jace test is off the table, we have a whole new world of old options that have been reintroduced, at least for the two weeks between the ban and the Magic 2012 release.
What are you looking forward to playing these days?

On the July 1st, the ban on Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic goes into effect. Just two weeks later Magic 2012 will roll into the format, but in the meantime, we’re in Zendikar – M11 – Scars Standard.
No doubt you’ve already seen a lot of writing on the topic.
