Where can one view the current "Watchlist" for EDH?

a ? in the title would perhaps be appropriate

There isn't a formal one. Cards occasionally get mentioned as being under examination during ban announcements, usually because they were considered for banning but they were tabled to see if the current changes did the trick or to gather more information.

Any thoughts on posting an official "watchlist"? Everybody would be able to contribute to the discussion of whether or not a card should go before the decision is ultimately made. That way, all these reactive threads wouldn't be necessary and changes would come as less of a surprise.

This would require an official watchlist :)

It's not part of a formal process. The main point of mentioning a particular card is being watched is to indicate one (or more) of three things:

1) It's come up a lot in the forums and we're still thinking about it, but want to avoid a round of "how come you aren't considering X" after other stuff gets banned
2) It probably would have been banned, but we're hoping the format tweaks already made will make it acceptable
3) It's an alert to the community that these cards may also be degenerate, but we're still gathering data.

You can get a pretty good idea of cards that are being examined by looking at what comes up a bunch in the forums. There are some exceptions - people go overboard about a local card, SDT gets a lot of attention from us due to the same mechanical issues that got it banned in Extended - but that's about as official as it's likely to get.
