Standard now rotates only once each year, with the release of the October large set. So Magic 2011 will enter Standard on its release without knocking anything out, then Magic 2010 and Shards of Alara block will leave Standard with the release of "Lights." The Standard format between Magic 2011 and "Lights" will consist of Shards of Alara block, Zendikar block, Magic 2010, and Magic 2011. After the release of "Lights," it will consist of Zendikar Block, Magic 2011, and "Lights."

Extended rotates at the same time. After the release of Scars of Mirrodin, Extended will be Lorwyn/Shadwomoor block, Shards of Alara block, Zendikar block, Scars of Mirrodin block, Magic 2010 and Magic 2011.
