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.

Description[edit | edit source]

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 and Pioneer are non-rotating formats that are not Eternal.

Colloquial use[edit | edit source]

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

Eternal Weekend[edit | edit source]

Eternal Weekend is a yearly tournament organized by Wizards of the Coast in association with an independant tournament organizer, featuring the Eternal formats.[2]
