Standard format uses the two most recently-released blocks, as well as the current core set. When a new block is launched, the oldest block rotates out of the list. The following card sets are currently permitted in standard format:

  • Magic Origins (effective July 17, 2015)
  • Dragons of Tarkir (effective March 27, 2015)
  • Fate Reforged
  • Khans of Tarkir
  • Magic 2015
  • Journey into Nyx
  • Born of the Gods
  • Theros

Standard is also a constructed deck format, so the normal constructed rules apply:

  • Minimum of sixty cards
  • No maximum deck size, as long as you can shuffle your deck unassisted
  • Up to fifteen cards in your sideboard, if used
  • No more than four of any individual card in your main deck and sideboard combined (with the exception of basic lands)
