What's historic? I mean, I know the card type, but is WotC trying to spin off yet *another* random eternal format?

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you! I updated the "What is Historic" thread to answer this question:
viewtopic.php?f=85&t=14169

I will note that Historic is in a weird spot because of Wizards' recent Pioneer announcement. It seems like Pioneer (https://magic.wizards.com/en/game-info/ ... ts/pioneer) is the nonrotating "post-Modern" format that many players were expecting and it's not clear where Historic fits between Pioneer, Modern, and Standard. Hopefully Wizards will clarify their direction for Historic so players aren't being pulled in so many different directions. I suspect that Historic will eventually become Pioneer on Arena after Wizards adds more cards/sets.
