Banish N means for one TARGET PLAYER to move exactly N Cards from their Field (the Origin Zone) to their Limbo (the Destination Zone). Refer to Zones.

The Effect Syntax is:

PLAYER Banish N, They Select Cards

"Banish" by itself means:

YOU Banish 1, You Select Cards

Cards are moved from the Top of the HQ.

Cards are moved one at a time from the Field zone to the Limbo zone, until N cards have been moved. If at any time insufficient cards exist in the Field zone, then this movement effect ends. A Movement Effect always Resolves, even if the Field zone is Empty to begin with.

Before a Card moves from the Field zone, Leave Zone Triggers happen. These effects may replace the Destination Zone.

After a Card moves into the Limbo zone, Enter Zone Triggers happen. These effects may further Move the card.

See also Movement. When the Destination Zone is the Base or Field, an Effect may also include Placement.
