I saw an article on brainburst.com saying that the recent changes to the
restricted lists have gone into effect.

I would like to get a copy of the updated lists, but I can't find one
online. Wizards.com's lists are outdated. For example, the Type 1 list has
apparently not been updated in almost a year:
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=judge/resources/sf...

Can anyone point me in the right direction? (Or kick wizards' webmaster in
the pants?)

That's correct.

I believe that Wizards has already been notified of the problem,
although it can sometimes take them a while to update their site.

The most recent changes are posted at
<http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dci/announce/dci20...;, but
I don't know if there's a new complete banned/restricted list
available from Somewhere Official.

Thanks. If someone sees such a list, would they please let everybody know on
this thread? TIA!

P.S. Peter Cooper Jr.: I've always wanted to ask you, is that your real
name? There was a famous guy of the same name, which I guess you know, I
just wonder wether that is intentional, accidental, or just an internet
handle or a joke on the real guy.

Yes, that is really my name, although I have generally found it
interesting that my name appears in the encyclopedia :) . (Although,
Googling for myself seems to bring up a lot of pages that are, in
fact, mentioning me.)

I wonder your grandparents named your father after the guy in the
encyclopedia, or if it was a just coincidence.

Googling my name brings up a violinmaker, that's just coincidence, so I
suppose I can guess the answer. With so many people and comparatively few
names, I suppose things like this are not really a that big a coincidence.

I am pleasantly surprised that you answered; it was kind of you to satisfy
my curiosity. Thanks!

They're apparently not updating their website, in favor of using Gatherer as
one-stop-shopping for all up-to-date info. This link gets you the Typ1 1
restricted list if you unlinewrap it:
