Relentless is a slang term used by Magic R&D to describe spells that allow a deck to have any number of card of a certain name, ignoring the "four-of" Deckbuilding rule (100.2a).

This mechanic was first printed in black, but not necessary exclusive in that color.[1][2][3] It is named after the Relentless Rats, and was originally inspired by Richard Garfield's Plague Rats.[4][5]

Throne of Eldraine introduced the card Seven Dwarves, which has a variant on the Relentless ability.[6] It allows players to break the "four-of" deckbuilding rule, but places a different maximum limit on the card. This restriction applies to Limited as well as Constructed.[7]
