Limited Elder Dragon Highlander or LEDH is a sub format of EDH. It imposes an altered set of rules to reach certain mission goals. LEDH is a set of rules that seek to reach these missions. The missions are listed below.
- Promote unique and different games.
- Promote playing magic.
- Throttle the speed at which games are played.
- No tutors that have a CMC less than 4
- No mana rocks that create more mana then their own CMC (Sol Ring, Mana Crypt etc)
- No zero cost counter spells
- No extra turn spells
In addition to the rules LEDH has a different Banned list. Cards that make the ban list are there because they impact the missions of LEDH in a negative way. LEDH as of Jan 2021 uses the standard EDH banlist and adds more cards to it.
