Description[edit | edit source]
The format was created by MTGCardsmith user East2West in response to the rising prices of paper magic. It was introduced on March 16, 2019 in an article titled Baroque .
The first ever match of Baroque was played on March 21st 2019 between East2west (Blue/Black Sky Control) and Sir Selah (Nic Fit). Sir Selah won in a best of three becoming the first player to ever win a game of Baroque.
Constructed decks must contain a minimum of sixty cards. There is no maximum deck size; however, you must be able to shuffle your deck with no assistance. Like other constructed formats, a sideboard of at most fifteen cards can be used.
With the exception of basic lands (land cards that have the "basic" supertype) and cards like Relentless Rats, a player's combined deck and sideboard may not contain more than four of any individual card, counted by its English card title equivalent.
Banned List[edit | edit source]
As of March 17, 2019 no cards have been banned in the format.
