The Wharf Banned List

The Wharf, Commander Banned list and rule changes for Fun Casual play.


There are 3 levels of play, T-rex level, Rapture Level and Vicious cat.

T-rex level follows the official wizards banned list. This level of play is for top tier decks, and decks that can stop them.

Rapture level play follows the official wizards banned list and has the following rule changes and additional banned cards.

• Infinite or near infinite combos are banned. (Any cards or board state that the cards could produce or produces a set of actions that could be repeated indefinitely.) or (A set of action using the same cards or abilities that could be consecutively repeated more than 5 times). Let’s not get all rules lawyer on this, this is a fun for all player’s format. Any infinite loops that happen due to cards played by 1 or more players that trigger an infinite loop or can be triggered by a player, break after one cycle of the event and then all cards involved or exiled from the game.

Commander Damage, A commanders max commander damage per combat phase cannot exceed the commanders printed attack value no matter how many times it applies damage during the combat phase. Damage above the printed attack value is regular damage. example, a 4/4 commander with double strike will do a total of 8 damage during the combat phase but only the first 4 points will count as commander damage, anything dealt after that is normal damage.

• During the course of the entire game if an effect would allow you to take an extra turn you may only take one extra turn. Any player that takes an extra turn will receive an emblem that says. You may not take any extra turns for the rest of the game.

· Rule change: Storm count cannot proceed past 1.

• Cascade is banned. Anything with cascade is considered to not have cascade.

Annihilator (X) is errata to say: When this permanent comes into play, if you cast it from your hand it gains Annihilator (X) (Whenever this creature attacks, defending player sacrifices X Non-land permanents.)

• Any Time a spell or ability that destroys, exiles, sacrifices, changes controller or removes 2 or more lands that 1 or more opponents control will have the following added to the stack after the resolution of the spell or abilities as a split second effect, “Then your opponents may return all lands to the battle field from this effect under their owners control in the state they left play. “If they were tapped, they come back tapped.” A player may destroy, exile, sacrifice, or remove as many lands he or she controls and owns, any land owned by another player will return to play under that owner’s control. Lands returning to play under these conditions do not trigger ETB effects or abilities.

• Lands that become creatures and die due to the controller’s players choice to attack or block and would die as a result then, do not return to play. If you are forced to attack by a spell or ability an opponent controls then they do.

• A Player loses the game if he acquires 20 or more poison counters instead of 10.
