Dice Masters: The Guide

Are you new to Dice Masters, or returning after an extended sabbatical? The Guide draws together all the information you need in one tidy space!

Since Dice Masters was launched in 2014, the total number of cards has crept steadily upwards until, at the time of writing, there are over 4000! As this can be rather unwieldy, the game is often played in limited formats that restrict the sets that teams can be drawn from. The limitations can be on anything from purchase cost to energy type, but one very common way of restricting the card pool is by the age of the cards. Indeed, the two main official formats – Modern and Golden – are distinguished in exactly this way.

Modern Sets

Wizkids produces an annual Rotation page, where you can find out what sets and cards are legal/banned in each official format. Here’s the most recent one: Dice Masters Rotation 2022. In short, the four newest sets are legal in Modern (probably the most common competitive format) and no cards are officially banned. Below you will find some more useful links for each Modern set.

Infinity Gauntlet

Other Formats and Older Sets

In Golden, you can use any of the cards ever printed, aside from the handful specifically banned by Wizkids. There are, of course, a ton of other formats, with varying card pools and ban lists. Check out the following links for more info:
