Booster Draft is a format where players build their decks from a limited pool of cards distributed via a draft. Each player (seated randomly at a table in groups of eight) will open a booster pack from the current drafting format, choose a card and place it face-down on the table. The rest of the pack is then handed to the player on the left. Once all cards are chosen, players are given a minute to examine them. After that, another booster pack is opened with drafting now proceeding to the right. Again, cards are chosen and a short assessment is made before opening and drafting the third and last pack, drafting to the left. In the end, each player will have 45 cards to construct their deck. Minimum deck size is 40 cards plus as many basic lands as wanted. Any cards drafted may optionally be used in a sideboard.
Pioneer is a new, nonrotating format featuring cards from Return to Ravnica and forward. Pioneer is a constructed format and therefore adheres to the following constructed rules. A deck must contain a minimum of sixty cards. There is no maximum deck size, as long as you can shuffle your deck unassisted, and your sideboard (if used) may contain no more than fifteen cards. With the exception of basic lands (Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, Forest, and Wastes), your combined deck and sideboard may not contain more than four of any individual card, counted by its English card title equivalent. All Standard releases from Return to Ravnica forward are legal.
Certain cards are banned in Pioneer. Learn more here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/game-info/gameplay/formats/pioneer
