Check out today’s Magic Arcana for more info about what might or might not be in in From the Vault: Exiled. I saw Brian David-Marshall’s twitter update from last night gives us some insight.
As for what is “Tournament Legal” as some of you discussed yesterday. I did some digging around about a definition for this phrase and I really couldn’t find an official definition. Maybe I didn’t look hard enough, but here is my understanding. Tournament Legal refers to all the cards that are not banned or restricted for a specific tournament/organized event. I think that this phrase is a little loose because certain “house” rules may apply in stores or play groups.
I could be wrong about that but as for now that is my understanding. So if Balance is printed in FtV: Exiled but it is restricted or banned where you are playing it is not legal. To qualify for FtV: Exiled the card had to have appeared at some point on that list. I just hope they don’t reprint ponder.
