Wizards of the Coast updated their Magic: The Gathering Banned and Restricted List on August 7, 2023.

The team that monitors organized play at WotC decided to unban two cards. They made the following changes:

  • Preordain is unbanned in the Modern format.
  • Mind's Desire is unbanned in the Legacy format.

These two unbannings were relatively lackluster, as neither card will likely impact either format too much. The Modern and Legacy communities had their eyes on whether or not The One Ring and Orcish Bowmasters, popular cards from The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth (see "'Tales of Middle-earth' Rules Them All"), would see an early ban in these formats. WotC based their decision not to change the legality of these cards on the recent Pro Tour Barcelona results, despite the two cards being the #1 and #2 most played cards at the event.
