Starting with June/08, we'll be synchronizing our updates of the banned list and EDH rules with the WotC announcements for "official" formats.

Several WotC people have restated their support for our independent management of the EDH rules, but we agreed that dovetailing the updates will help us communicate with both our digital and paper communities.

As EDH as a format grows rapidly, we'll continue to look at elements which are problematic for more regimented, "competetive" EDH play. Casual groups can, as always, mitigate other problems as they see fit, but we want the format to be as strong and stable as possible in the face of competitive pressure. Emergency bannings and rules changes outside the 3-month schedule will, of course, continue to be an option to this end.

I say "as strong as possible" because the purpose and goal of the format will always be, first and foremost, a fun and casual feel/style of play. We're not willing to sacrifice this, even for absolute strength (ie: an absolutely "unbreakable" format)... and EDH may always rely to some extent on the goodwill of players to "work". Our aim is simply to protect the balance between fun and competitive desires... a balance which is in large part responsible for the format's success.

With this in mind, look for some housecleaning and preventative maintenance updates in the future to help deal with any pressing concerns. We're listening (and discussing, and thinking)... keep up the good discussions :)
