I was looking at picking this set up, but I couldn't find out if these cards are okay for Standard constructed or not.

Anyone know?

Thanks. 
the cards in the FTV set are only legal in standard if they are also printed in a standard-legal set.

At present, the sets which are legal in standard are:



  • Zendikar (until September 30. 2011)

  • Worldwake (until September 30. 2011)

  • Rise of the Eldrazi (until September 30. 2011)

  • Magic 2011 (until September 30. 2011)

  • Scars of Mirrodin

  • Mirrodin Besieged

  • New Phyrexia

  • Magic 2012 (effective July 15, 2011)

  • Innistrad (effective September 30, 2011)

This means that the following cards in the FTV:Legends are standard legal, as of 5 September 2011:

---------------------
Omnath, Locus of Mana
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre
---------------------

Mikaeus, the Lunarch is NOT currently standard legal, but it will become standard legal from September 30 2011.

the other twelve cards are not standard legal, and will not be unless they are reprinted in a future set.

Thanks for the detailed reply!  I wasn't sure if they would be considered "standard" due to the re-release.
One other thing... I'm not 100% sure when Mikaeus becomes legal for standard in Magic Online.

What I have quoted above is 100% correct for paper product, but there is often some timing differences between MTGO and paper, due to when product is released online. But when Innistrad becomes standard-legal for MTGO, that is when Mikaeus will become legal (and on the same date, Omnath and Ulamog will cease being standard-legal)

It might be important to note that Mikaeus, the Lunarch will be legal in Legacy and Classic/Vintage, even before Innistrad is released.

It already is. I play classic and encounter him now and then.
