|It has been suggested that this article be merged into Banish. (discuss)|
The reason given was: There is no such thing as a Banished Zone and using such unofficial terms only serves to confuse new players.
The Banished Zone, known as the Removed from play Zone or Removed Zone prior to the PSCT update, is a semi-official term used to refer to the location where a player's banished cards are placed. It has also been referred to as the banished pile, or the removed from play pile (sometimes formatted as removed-from-play pile) prior to the PSCT update.
The Banished Zone is not actually a zone, and as such, it is not included on official playmats. Instead of using the term "Banished Zone", card texts directly refer to "cards that are banished" or "the player's banished cards" (previously "the player's removed from play cards" or "the player's cards that are removed from play").
Most video games place banished cards either to the right of or above the Graveyard Zone. The artwork of one particular card, "Chain Material", explicitly shows an example of where banished cards may be placed.
