Tiny Leaders Format Changes for Ixalan

Hello Tiny Leaders Community!

Some quick notes before I get to the format changes- We've been in contact with a large group of players in France who have been gathering testing data, so we will be resuming banlist updates as they become apparent.  We also have some rules changes in regards to split cards, making things simpler for analyzing whether a split card is legal in deck construction or not.

Format Changes: Split cards now check the CMC of the card to see if it's legal for deck construction, instead of checking both halves.  This means that Fire//Ice has moved from "Two 2 mana spells, legal to play" to "A 4 mana card, not legal to play"

Ban List Changes: From our testing partners in France we've found that some newer cards have been seeing a lot of play, namely Baral as the leader of a High Tide storm deck, and The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale in a Lands shell.  Reviewing the data, we have decided to act on High Tide and The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, but leave Baral for now.

Banned: High Tide, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale.

We hope to have more testing and results for you in future months, and we hope you have fun playing Tiny Leaders!
