← Scryfall FAQs / General What’s the deal with Old School legality?

Scryfall follows the rules for Old School 93/94 legality as prescribed by Eternal Central:

Old School 93-94 decks may consist of cards from these sets printed in 1993-94: Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, Collector’s Edition (CE), International Collector’s Edition (IE), Arabian Nights, Antiquities, Revised, Legends, The Dark, Fallen Empires

Additional Sets and Cards Allowed (ie. REPRINTS): Tournaments hosted by Eternal Central also allow all non-foil cards from the sets above, that were reprinted IN ANY LANGUAGE with the original frame and original art.


Finally, the following promotional cards from 1994 are also legal: Arena, Sewers of Estark, and Nalathni Dragon.

This is a unique format, as legality is determined on a per-printing, rather than a per-card basis. Before reporting an issue with Old School legality, ensure that it does not meet the above criteria.
