We have six free-to-enter weekly tournaments with prizes from Cardhoarder. They are hosted on Gatherling along with a lot of other player-run Magic Online events.
What happens if a card goes above 2¢? How does rotation work? When is the next rotation? How long are cards legal for? Legality is determined a week after the release of a Standard-legal set on Magic Online. Prices are checked every hour for a week. Anything 2¢ or less for half or more of all checks is legal for the season. Any version of a card on the legal cards list is legal.
The next rotation is in 15 weeks, 3 days.
