1v1 Unbannings on MTGO



So what Got Unbanned?


Major Categories:

  • Fast Mana: 7 Mana accelerators that cost 1 or less, 5 of which produce multiple mana.
  • Card advantage: Necro, Bargain, Cruise and DTT
  • Card Selection: 7 ways to tutor through your library. All the one cost blue cantrips.


Why 1v1 and not CEDH?  What’s the attraction?

Eric: “I conceive of 1v1 Commander as Vintage with some quirks.”
