Eternal (format)

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Eternal formats are DCI tournament formats which allow cards from all Magic: The Gathering sets with the standard card back and non-silver-bordered card frames.

The three eternal formats are Vintage, Legacy[1][2] and Pauper.

Eternal is sometimes confused with the notion of non-rotating formats. All Eternal formats are non-rotating, but Modern is a non-rotating format that is not Eternal.

Colloquial use[edit | edit source]

Often formats which are not DCI tournament formats like Commander are also described are eternal, since they allow use of all Magic editions.
