← Scryfall FAQs / General What do the different legalities mean?

A card that is marked as “not legal” in a format is excluded because the format does not permit any sets that the card was printed in. For example, the card may be too old for Modern format while legal in Legacy.

A card that is “banned” from a format would have been legal, but Wizards has specifically forbidden it because it is too powerful or disruptive. See the Wizards banned and restricted page for more information.
