Standard is the most widely supported format among all sanctioned tournaments, though not necessarily the most popularly played for casual games.

Details

Standard Format typically allows only cards from the latest 5 or 6 Sets, depending on the time of year and the set rotations. Twice a year, the oldest 2 sets from Standard rotates out and become illegal to use. To compensate for the loss of legal sets, new sets are released one set at a time, 4 times per year.

Standard Rules

  • 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 must contain up to fifteen 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. (This excludes basic lands. All cards named Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, and Forest are basic lands.)

The following card sets are accepted in Standard tournaments:
