FAQ

Is Warband in any way, shape or form supported by Wizards of the Coast or Hasbro?

No! Warband is a 100% unofficial format. Warband is also 100% nonprofit.

 

Is Warband worth getting into?

Yes! Warband is a ton of fun and it’s really cheap! In fact, if you own magic cards, you’ll most likely have enought cards laying around to construct a playable Warband today!

 

Does the limit on rare/mythic/uncommon cards apply to the main-deck AND sideboard?

No. The limitation only applies to your main-deck. Cards in your sideboard may be of any rarity (for instance, your sideboard may contain 15 rares). NOTE: Your main deck must at all times fulfill the 3/9 restriction on rarity. Sideboarding in a rare card in a deck with 3 rares in the main-deck means you have to side out one of the main-deck rares.

 

How do I find the rarity of a card? 

Warband considers the lowest rarity in which a card has ever been printed (in paper) to be its rarity. For instance, Lightning Strike was printed in Core 19 as an uncommon. It was also printed in Theros as a common. Thus the rarity of Lightning Strike will always be common.

Check out our Rarity Check tool to help you find the lowest card rarity.
