Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic will both be banned in Standard effective July 1, 2011.

On Magic Online, Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic will both be banned in Standard as of the June 29, 2011 downtime. There will be no exceptions made for the Event Deck containing Stoneforge Mystic, as that deck will not be sold online.
THE WAR IS OVER! WE’RE FREE!
Seriously though, I didn’t think they’d actually do it. In other news: Jace, the Mind Sculptor is now selling for $1.25 a pop.
