Mox Opal and Eidolon of the Great Revel

Hey folks,

we saw very interesting and thoughtfull discussions on our Discord which made us propose two changes that the community can vote on until the 31th of June 2020. Should Mox Opal be legal again after his short visit to the banlist? Is Eidolon of the Great Revel still to strong for Archon? You decide! Head over to our Discord to cast your vote!

Update to our authorized cards
2020-06-14

Hi everybody,

You casted your vote and as a result all cards that Wizards has removed from constructed formats for beeing racially or culturally offensive are also removed from Archon as well.

30 votes were cast, 20 voted with "in favour", 7 voted with "against" and 3 voted with "abstaining". This means 66,7% were in favor of this change.

Proposal to make a change to authorized cards
2020-06-11

In the light of the announcement from Wizards of the Coast to ban cards for being racist or culturally offensive from all sanctioned tournaments, we propose to ban all those cards as well from Archon. We also propose that all cards that are banned in the future for these reasons by Wizards of the Coast from all sanctioned tournaments, should automatically be banned in Archon as well.

We think that it is not important if you agree with the position of Wizards or not. Not following Wizards example suggests to others that Archon has no problem with cards that Wizards considers racist.

Head over to our Discord and cast your vote! You have time to do so until 14-Jun-2020 12:00 CEST.
