Rotating Format Heirloom is a format that bases its card legality on the classic format and on the price value found at mtgotraders.com every month or so.
The legality range is as follows:
Mythic: 0.01 to 1.00
Rare: 0.01 to 0.40
Uncommon: 0.01 to 0.20
Common: 0.01 to 0.10
The list of legal cards is static, and is updated approximately 2 weeks after each set release. Heirloom Legal Card List as of 08/14/13 can be found here: Heirloom Legality List.
Another tool for finding legal cards and checking an entire deck for legality can be found here: Heirloom Legality Checker.
Sword of the Meek
It is every player's responsibility to make sure that all their cards are legal in the format. If an illegal card is found in a player's deck, that player must concede that match and replace the card(s) with basic lands. If a player is unable to do this, they will be disqualified from the tournament.
Event will be a number of swiss rounds followed by a cut and single elimination playoff. The number of rounds is determined by the number of players.
8-15: 3 rounds of swiss with a top 4 cut
16-23: 3 rounds of swiss with a top 8 cut
24 or more: 4 rounds of swiss with a top 8 cut
Matches will take place in the Anything Goes room (Getting Serious on Beta) and must be constucted as follows:
30 Minutes (25 minutes on Beta); Watchable; Labeled as "Heirloom Round __"; Best 2 out of 3
Players are expected to conduct themselves as they would in any other tournament. Repeated abusive language and/or behavior may be cause for disqualification. Hopefully that goes without saying.
