Origins Format and Emergency Ban

Origins Format and Emergency Ban

This is an addendum to the Origins Announcement originally posted on April 5 2016.

The format for the Origins Constructed Championships will be Current, which includes:

  • Second Edition
  • Shade of the Devoured Emperor
  • Holy Heist
  • Seed Saga

Ungodly Mess will not be legal for the Constructed Champions at Origins and will become legal for all officially sanctioned VICTORS constructed events on June 20th 2016.

Say Goodbye to Foreman PeteRemains of Foreman Pete, the Clock Man.full

This has been a long time coming. We’ve heard from players all over the world that Foreman Pete was a problem in constructed, but we chose not to take definitive action against it until we saw how Ungodly Mess impacted the metagame. Since Ungodly Mess will not be legal for Origins, however, we believe it appropriate to ban Foreman Pete from all Current format Constructed Events, effective immediately.

Foreman Pete will be legal in Chronicles.
