Moat isn't a land and is not black, and Library of Alexandria is banned in commander.

right, im pretty sure they do it to help each other from blaming the game if they ever get screwed/flooded, so everyone gets to start with a land card on the field. it doesn't have to be basic but it does have to be a land, it cant be something that needs something else to happen to produce mana, so Library of Alexandria would work, while Lost Vale would not. when I originally posted, I thought sol ring was an artifact land and I was mistaken, I don't use sol ring all that often so I hope I may be forgiven this fox paws, faux pas for those that don't listen to chad daniels.

In light of the recent MTGO Commander Banlist announcement, I thought to ask everyone what the banlist would look like if they made it.

The following proposed banlist is my opinion of what the banlist should look like. You will see 3 criteria for what makes a card unfit for the format, and a list of what cards could be banned based on them:

As you don't play much standard it's also worth noting that any card that taps for colorless now uses the symbol in it's oracle text on Gatherer, such as Mind Stone, Battlefield Forge, or Library of Alexandria.

I think I may have come up with a card to get me out from under a Solitary Confinement squeeze. Sea Gate Wreckage. In the setting of a Solitary Confinement squeeze, this is essentially the same as a Library of Alexandria. Not a huge bomb card draw spell, but I think it could be effective. The Monarch, Solitary Confinement, and Sea Gate Wreckage means I can't be damaged, I can continue to maintain the Solitary Confinement, and I have a card to play each turn. I think I will playtest it, but I am very optimistic.
