Hi! So i've been working on this format in it's different incarnations for awhile now and the basic premise is that only cards that don't come from blocks or core sets are legal. Most of these cards have never been played in an environment without power. In order for a set to qualify it has to include unique cards or be part of an ongoing product that contains unique cards. For example Planechase is an all reprint set but Planechase 2012 contains many new printings so both are legal in this format. Also any promo cards legal in vintage are legal in Standalone. I've also decided to include 2 Unglued/Unhinged cards per color but nothing too weird. I think the cards I've included will add value to the game play experience. This format has a restricted list and banned list as well as a watchlist for cards that may be too good for the format but haven't proven to be yet. You may still play with 4 copies of any card on the watchlist. Any future standalone sets should be expected to be added to the format as well.

Legal Sets: Arabian Knights, Legends, Antiquities, The Dark, Fallen Empires, Homelands, Portal, Portal 3 Kingdoms, Portal Second Age, Starter/Starter99, Commander, Commander 2013, Planechase, Planechase 2012, Archenemy and Conspiracy

Legal Promos Arena, Mana Crypt, Nalathini Dragon, Giant Badger, Sewers of Estark, and Windseeker Centaur

This format was modeled after old invitational formats as well as extended and modern. It's a lot of fun to play so far. Does anyone have feedback or want to post a deck idea? If you're interested in playing this format shoot me a PM. I'd like to get it off the ground if possible.
