Banned and Restricted cards[edit | edit source]

  • Tibalt's Trickery is another spell in the long line of polymorph abilities, with the distinction of being much cheaper than many of the others. Its ability to cast the spell also opens up many branches for combos, notably with cascade, which led to a changing of the rules to cascade. The decks borne of this card in Historic and Standard tend to be on the glass-cannon type, with a pile of haymakers, some number of 0-cost cards, and Trickery, but the builds in Modern had cascade support, which ups the consistency through the "another name" clause. This lead to a ban in Modern in February 2021.
