Standard, formerly known as Type 2, is a rotating constructed format. [1] [2]

Description[edit]

Constructed decks must contain a minimum of sixty cards. There is no maximum deck size; however, you must be able to shuffle your deck with no assistance. If a player wishes to use a sideboard, it may contain up to fifteen cards.

With the exception of basic land cards, a player's combined deck and sideboard may not contain more than four of any individual card, counted by its English card title equivalent.[3]

Rotation[edit]

Standard allows for all cards in the newest two story-based blocks and the newest Core Set to be played, save for cards on the Standard Banned List.

Beginning in 2016, core sets will be discontinued and blocks will only contain two sets, usually one large and one small. The first set of each block (the fall and spring Sets) will cause a rotation. This will not substantially change how many unique cards are in the Standard card pool at a given time.[4]

Current Rotation[edit]

These are the sets that are legal in the Standard format as of July 18, 2014[3]:

Banned list[edit]

As of July 30, 2012, there are no banned cards in the current Standard environment.
