A Standard deck consists of a minimum of sixty cards. Although there is no maximum deck size, a player must be able to shuffle his or her deck without assistance. Standard format provides for an optional sideboard of up to 15 fifteen cards. A player’s sideboard and deck combined may not contain more than four copies of any given card (land cards excepted).

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.
