Field of the Dead Banned In Historic

WotC has announced a Banned and Restricted updated for Historic!

Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has released a Banned and Restricted update, removing Field of the Dead from Historic.

Field of the Dead

After already being banned in Standard, Field of the Dead was considered by many to be too strong for Historic, even before the release of Amonkhet Remastered, which reintroduced Hour of Promise to the format.

After analyzing play patterns, it was determined that despite not having an above-average win-rate overall, its matchups tended to be “extremely polarized…” and a “…high win rate against slower decks has made the format as a whole lean more toward aggressive strategies.”

WotC also notes that they do not expect major shakeups to come to Historic any time soon, so they are opting to ban Field of the Dead outright, rather than assigning it a temporary suspension.
