So in a Facebook group, someone leaked the alleged March 2016 Forbidden & Limited list. They said it will be released on March 9th, and put into effect March 18th. They also leaked an OTS pack, but I live in Spain, and currently don’t have a locals to attend. Also, I just don’t want to talk about reprints. Prices go down. It’s boring. Let’s talk about the potential March 18th list.
Since there is relatively little information on older formats one of my goals is to archive each format starting with September 2011, but before I can start there we need some context about the previous format, March 2011. So this is part 1 of the format reflection series.
Three weeks before the new Forbidden & Limited list on March 1, 2011 Storm of Ragnarok (STOR) was released on February 7. STOR contained a re-vamp of Six Samurai and a new hand trap, Maxx “C”. Since Kageki, Kagemusha, Kizan, Enishi and Shi En were all released in STOR, it was basically a new archetype, but was able to benefit from some older archetype-specific cards that most new archetypes don’t have the pleasure of dreaming of, namely Gateway, United and Grandmaster.
