What is Classic Format?
The Classic format allows players to include cards which were formerly classed as “retired” into their decks to play at events.
How Does Classic Work?
When deck building you can now include the following:
1 Classic combo in either your deck or sideboard
For Example: Benny is building a deck and wants to play Avalanche in his deck. This would be allowed within the new “Classic” format, however, he wouldn’t be able to add Blood Moon into either his deck or sideboard, as he already has one of the “Classic” combos in his deck/sideboard.
Classic action cards may be included but at a maximum of 1 copy of each per deck.
Claire is looking to include Bone Chewer into her tech deck, Bone Chewer is deemed a retired card and so she can only include one copy of this card into her deck. Claire also wants to add Bulwark Carrier, this also is deemed a retired card, she can only add one copy of this card to her deck.
If Claire wanted to, she could make her deck entirely our of retired cards, however, she could only be able to have one copy of each card in her deck.
You can view all of the retired action cards you can play here
