As part of their weekly updates article, Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has banned four cards in Brawl and provided the schedule for several upcoming events.

Brawl Bans

Four cards from the upcoming Mystical Archive have been preemptively banned in Brawl — Channel, Demonic Tutor, Natural Order, and Tainted Pact. The other four cards that are banned in Historic — Counterspell, Dark Ritual, Lightning Bolt, and Swords to Plowshares — will remain legal in Brawl.

Store Updates

New bundles featuring borderless versions of planeswalkers, Strixhaven’s Elder Dragons, and a variety of stickers, sleeves, and pets will be available through the in-game store beginning April 15. Also available will be the Japanese alternate-art Mystical Archive card styles and the Forbidden Volumes bundle, which contains alternate-art copies of the cards banned in Historic.
