If a common version of a particular card was ever released in Magic, any version of that card is legal in this format.

  • Minimum of 60 cards in the main deck
    (There is no maximum size for main decks)
  • Up to 15 cards in your sideboard, if used
  • No more than four of any individual card in the main deck and sideboard combined (with the exception of basic lands)
