I'm going to run minis for this Other-rated format.

Description
15-Card Highlander is a casual format in which you construct a 15 card deck and a 3 card sideboard that can only have single copies of any Standard-legal cards, and any amount of any basic lands.

The only format-specific special rule is that you can't deck out, instead attempting to draw a card from an empty library causes nothing to happen.

Banlist
Black Sun's Zenith
Chancellor of the Spires
Dream Twist
Elixir of Immortality New!
Ghoulcaller's Bell
Horrifying Revelation
Jace's Erasure
Laboratory Maniac New!
Merfolk Mesmerist
Mindshrieker
Nephylia Drownyard
Red Sun's Zenith
Shriekhorn
Sword of Body and Mind New!
White Sun's Zenith

Laboratory Maniac seems like a good wincon, if you're able to protect him!

Is Elixir of Immortality really not banned? I think it's way too powerful for the format, and really every deck is either forced to play it or have an answer to it in their 15 cards.

I did read your post. I was explaining why I said Elixir was missing even though it's listed in the link you cited - it was missing in the OP, which is all I read, but he's since fixed it.

Because it will not see play till third turn and able to swing in on a creature till 4th at the latest.

If I am correct then If you chose to play then your opponent would have drawn 10 of the 15 cards of his deck, and if the opponent kills the creature, prevents damage or blocks then he keeps his deck, unlike Chancellor of the Spires where you will just mulligan till you get it into your hand and leave your opponent with 1 card in the library.

But I still think it should be banned, b/c this format has limited removal and a card that destroys the ability to remove it and provides another creature to beat with, is way to powerful for the mana cost.

After 10 minutes of testing this format:

Ban Sword of body and mind.
