While hammy did an admirable job of [Ctrl]+C and [Ctrl]+V ( ;) ) here is the link that you can use to check any B&R list for any format:
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=judge/resources/banned
and here is the list specifically for Prismatic:

Guess what? Chicken butt.

Better idea: check out the Five Color format which is what Prismatic is based on.

I guess I should have asked this question differently. Which sets are available on MTGO?

Also, are Master set cards allowed in prismatic?

Everything on MTGO is allowed, except the cards I listed.

So yep, Masters, MVW, CSP reprints, the few promo cards (but not Gleemox) and the rest of the regular sets minus the cards in my first post.

Ok Masters cards are in, that's cool. But we're still not sure of what's available on MTGO. For example, one of my friends noticed that Demonic Tutor isn't on the banned list. Well we realized pretty quickly that demonic tutor is probably not available on MTGO, so you couldn't use it in prismatic anyway. But what about tinker? I'm not sure if mtgo goes back that far.

Sets that have been/currently are available online:
Expansions: Invasion through Shadowmore
Core Sets: 7-10th
Classic Sets: Mirage, Visions, Wetherlight, Masters Edition

There are also some promotional cards that have been released: Sliver Queen, Morphling, Serra Avatar, Hazan Tamar, Braingyeser, Kjeldorian Outpost.

Additionally, you can find some selected Ice Age and Alliances cards because they were included in the Coldsnap Preconstructed decks.

There are more Classic set in the works for release; eventually everything from Mirage block (which, as I stated has already been released) to Tempest to Urza's Block to Masques will be released online.
And there will be at least another two Masters sets to fill in more cards from pre-Mirage.

Guess what? Chicken butt.

Just a question, why are you interested in playing Prismatic, not 5-Color? Seems odd to limit yourself to only cards that are online.
The way I see it, if you're playing prismatic in paper magic (which I do=X) any card not on the banned list is fine, even if it isn't available online.
