    Please try to put a little more effort into your questions - this one especially is quite hard to understand, and because of that, it's not easy to tell whether answers are useful either. May 30, 2017 at 19:24
  • What card or cards are you describing? I agree with TheThirdMan, it's hard to understand what you're describing or what game mechanics would be involved here. May 30, 2017 at 19:27
  • Start by using the proper names for things. There's no such thing as a "general" in MTG, and there's no such thing as being "banned from the game". (Banned cards are cards that would be allowed by a format except for the fact that they are explicitly banned from that format. This is obviously not what you're talking about.)

Nope. When a general/commander leaves the battlefield, it's owner may choose whether to return it to the command zone or let it go to wherever it would have gone otherwise (library/hand/graveyard/exile).

From the rules:

903. 9. If a commander would be exiled from anywhere or put into its owner’s hand, graveyard , or library from anywhere, its owner may put it into the command zone instead. This replacement effect may apply more than on ce to the same event. This is an exception to rule 614.5

Your question is a bit vague but clearly deals with this rule here and so I suspect that it answers your question.
