Penny Dreadful is a Magic Online-specific constructed format of Magic: The Gathering, in which any card that costs 0.01 tix is legal to use in your deck.

Description[edit | edit source]

The range of cards worth 0.01 tix includes commons, uncommons, rares and mythics, meaning a wide variety of cards is available. Around 10,000 cards are legal in the format. It is a constructed format, with decks of 60 cards with a 15 card sideboard, and a limit of 4 of each individual card (except basic land).[1]

With every new set release, the format "rotates"; that is, which cards cost 0.01 tix are checked again and the legal card list updated. This creates an interesting dynamic; if decks become popular in Penny Dreadful and their prices rises because people are buying the cards for them, the deck will become illegal when the format rotates. This keeps the format fresh and interesting.

The format is named after a cheap popular serial literature produced during the nineteenth century in the United Kingdom.

Banlist[edit | edit source]

There is currently no banlist and because of three-monthly rotation Penny Dreadful is a "no bans" format.
