Additional Notes

1) A “format” is a period in which there has been no change in the number of permissible cards available to play, either in terms of quantity of permissible cards, or in their permitted number. Thus, any new printing or Banned and Restricted List change, or major change in functionality, creates a new “format.”
2) A format must be more than a brief period (such as just a week). Any changes that are just a few days are not considered separate formats under this approach.
3) Vintage has been rebranded several times. See notes and citations to format # 2, 11, and 54 for rebranding details.
4) Mulligan changes adopted as follows: all-land/no-land mulligan with format 7, Paris Mulligan with 22, Vancouver Mulligan with 108, and London Mulligan with 130.
5) For sets after 1994, I have noted heavily played new printings
6) Power Level Errata Policy Change announced with format 62. Time Vault restored with format 74. Flash restored with format 66.
7) See notes to formats 56 and 58 for details on the legalization of Portal and Starter sets to the Vintage card pool.
