Block Constructed (also known as Block) was a format that allows for cards of a chosen block to be played, save any banned cards.[1][2] As of April 2018, Wizards of the Coast no longer supports Block as the block system itself was discontinued in 2018.


Constructed decks must contain a minimum of 60 cards. There is no maximum deck size; however, you must be able to shuffle your deck with no assistance. If a player wishes to use a sideboard, it must contain exactly 15 cards.

With the exception of card named Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, and Forest, a player’s combined deck and sideboard may not contain more than four of any individual card, counted by its English card title equivalent. Snow-covered lands, despite being basic lands, are only permitted in formats that allow the Ice Age block to be used. This similarly applies to Wastes in Battle for Zendikar block.

According to Mark Rosewater, Block has proven over time to be an unpopular format almost exclusively played because Wizards of the Coast required it at Pro Tours and Pro Tour Qualifiers. He stated that it was being phased out because players almost never played it of their own volition.[3] The format itself was dropped on the same day Dominaria, the first set of Three-and-One Model (in which blocks are no longer used), released.
