Will Possession (and Stash) be banned? Any other banned cards?

Stash is not availabe to play at all in the current online implementation.

Possession will not be part of a randomly generated set (possible exception is that it may come up in the Black Market deck if a Potion costing card is in the Kingdom).
From the rules

7.1 The default is playing on the Shuffle iT platform (dominion.games), with the point counter enabled, on fully random sets including all expansions up to Nocturne.
7.2 The default match configuration may be changed by mutual agreement between both players. (e.g. disable point counter, always include/exclude some cards, etc.).

So if players use the default way to start a game, they will (with the mentioned exception) not encounter Possession. If they are using option 7.2, they should be on the watch for inclusion of cards by the game host that they do not want to play against.

Ahhh Possession is banned when I chose a random set of cards when creating a table?

I didn't know, so if I do want to play with Possession (outside the tournament) I need to chose it manually?

Thanks for the information.

Correct. The intention is to have a banned list feature, something like, letting you pick up to 5 cards that won't be used in your rated games. But until we have that feature, the quick fix was to just ban Possession, the card people wanted to be able to ban the most. So it only appears if you manually choose it.
