What is Frontier? Frontier is a casual constructed format, popularized by card store Hareruya games in Japan, which allows allows expansion sets and core sets from Magic 2015 onward. So, in the same vein that the Modern format uses all cards from 8th Edition forward, Frontier is composed of all cards that have been printed in a core or expansion set forwards.

The starting point was largely determined by the shift to the M15 card frame. There currently is no ban list for Frontier. Just as in Standard and Modern, your decks must contain a minimum of sixty cards, with no more than 4 of a single card except for basic lands being allowed, and decks may also use a 15 card sideboard.

Currently, Frontier is brand new, and untested. The most obvious comparison with it is to Modern, with many advocates of the format claiming it solves many of Modern issues, largely in the way of cost.
