Starter 2000 is a starter-level set that came out in April, 2000. All cards in this set are reprints from Sixth Edition, Portal and Starter. The cards from Sixth Edition are not different from their original printing. The ones from Portal and Starter do differ, in that they have no expansion symbol. These were legalized for Legacy and Vintage on October 20, 2005[2]

Starter 2000 was exclusively sold in the Starter 2000 game box. A sampler pack that was released in magazines is also considered part of Starter 2000. A 24-card Demogame booster was provided via the Guru program.
