What's in Hex Standard?

What is Standard?

Standard is a rotating group of 4-5 Hex: Shards of Fate sets. Most sets enter Standard when they're released (At about 4 month intervals) and drop out about two years later. Sets (Oldest two) rotate every even set. Gems (Some or All) rotate every odd set. A Standard card is a card printed or reprinted into a set currently in Standard.
