When a card is banished, it is not sent to the discard pile but instead it is removed from the play area entirely. (It is still possible for a player to interact with banished cards through game text). Any Resources attached to a card are dismissed when that card is banished.

Players are allowed to look at their opponent’s banished cards at any point throughout the game.

It is important to note that Mane Character and Problem cards cannot be banished.
