Why Play This Format?

A fast nonrotating and powerful format.

Modern has a huge number of strategies where players are greatly rewarded for building decks to beat the current popular decks by playing niche cards no one else is expecting.

Play Rules/Modifiers

 

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. This format includes powerful cards and strategies from the last two decades of Magic.
