Tomorrow is Magic the Gathering Standard Showdown!

From November 26 through December 17, Dr. No's is hosting the new Standard Showdown tournaments on Saturdays with special promotional prize boosters earned through undefeated play and other means. The tournaments will be Swiss tournaments meant to showcase the Standard format. This is the first time in a very long time that Dr. No's is hosting a regular Standard tournament. The prizes for you folks were too good to pass up!

The prize boosters will contain:
  • A premium card from a currently legal Standard set, including the possibility of Zendikar Expeditions and Kaladesh Inventions.
  • Two non-premium cards that are either a rare or a mythic rare from a set currently legal in Standard (Battle for Zendikar through Kaladesh).
  • Cards from Oath of the Gatewatch and double-faced cards are not included in these packs.
  • Zendikar Expeditions and Kaladesh Inventions appear in roughly 1 in 33 boosters.
We will be running 3 rounds of swiss starting at 1:00pm every Saturday from November 26 through December 7.

What are the sets that are in Standard Format?

In addition to these sets, Welcome Deck 2016 cards may also be played in Standard.

Pro Tip: Some cards in Standard have alternate versions or were also printed in older sets, and it's okay to use those cards in your deck. If you're not sure about a card, look it up in Gatherer and check the Sets & Legality section.
