Eternal formats are Constructed play formats which allow cards from all Magic: The Gathering sets with the standard card back and non-silver-bordered card frames.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Eternal formats are Vintage, Legacy,[1][2] Commander[3] and Pauper.

Eternal is sometimes confused with the notion of non-rotating formats. All Eternal formats are non-rotating, but Modern, Pioneer, and Historic are non-rotating formats that are not Eternal.

Eternal Weekend[edit | edit source]

Eternal Weekend is a yearly tournament organized by Wizards of the Coast in association with an independent tournament organizer, featuring the Eternal formats. The tabletop tournament was introduced in 2013.[2] Due to the 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 version was played on Magic Online.[4]
