Next Three Standard Sets Announced

It's official: we're going back to Ravnica!  Guilds of Ravnica will release on October 5th and feature Selesnya, Boros, Golgari, Izzet, and Dimir guilds.  Ravnica Allegiance will release next January and feature Azorius, Rakdos, Gruul, Simic, and Orzhov guilds.  A third set, coming next Spring, will be set in Ravnica, but instead of featuring any of the Guilds it will deal with the culmination of the story that has been going since Battle for Zendikar!  Considering what has been happening in the Dominaria story there is a chance, albeit a slim chance, that the Phyrexians could be involved.  Wizards isn't ready to talk about the spring 2019 set yet, other than that it is set in Ravinca, so we will have to wait and see.

Brawl Update

All cards banned in Standard are now legal in Brawl, with the exception of Smuggler's Copter.
Baral, Chief of Compliance and Sorcerous Spyglass are now banned in Brawl.

New Commander Format: Brawl!

With the release of Dominaria Wizards will also be rolling out a new Commander format called Brawl!  This format uses most of the same rules as regular Commander, but with a few exceptions:
-Only cards in the Standard format are allowed.
-60 card deck instead of 100.
-Each player starts with 30 life instead of 40.
-PLANESWALKERS CAN BE USED AS COMMANDERS!
