I can't seem to find what sets are legal in each format. I know it has to do with the shuriken watermark, but I was wondering if there was just a list of "this set is standard, this one is legacy, etc."

Everything = Legacy
4 & 5 Shurikan Mark = Extended
5 Shurikan Mark = Standard

Sorta general list of what watermarks are where...

Sets 1-3: No shuriken
Sets 4-6 and half of 7: Three point shuriken
Sets 8-11 and half of 7: Four point shuriken (extended)
Sets 12-14: Five point shuriken (Standard & extended)

Okay, total noob here. What do you mean by Sets 12-14? I see 26 different sets. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Set 4: SF: The Dark Path and SC: Soul Arena
Set 5: SF: Extreme Rivals and SC: Blades of Fury
Set 6: SC: Higher Calibur and SNK: Fortune and Glory
Set 7: SF: Fight for the Future and Darkstalkers (HALF EXTENDED HALF LEGACY)
Set 8: SF: Domination and SNK: Cutting Edge (ALL-EXTENDED CUTOFF POINT minus a single card)
Set 9: SF: Deadly Ground and DS: Realm of Midnight
Set 10: SC: Flash of the Blades and SNK: King of Fighters
Set 11: SF: Warrior's Dream and SNK: Flames of Fame

Very cool, thanks so much. I run a card shop, and I'm trying to get some interest in the game started in my community. I think I'm going to try to get my players focused on Standard at first, and maybe work toward traveling to a PTC stop if one's close. Thanks, again.

What do you think about a tournament format like a sort of Consistent Legacy? That is, a Legacy where deck's cards must come from a certain rotated set, and only from that set.
That would limit the broken synergies between cards belonging to different sets, I suppose...

You'd still have situations like playing *Yun-Seong* and your opponent better hope they're a Fortune and Glory/Higher Calibur deck or they lose

How comes Fight for the Future and Darkstalkers are half 3 point, half 4 point shuriken?
What happened when a player got, say, a Gill charachter (3 point) with a Gill card with 4 points?

Some sets were like that. They were introducing the 4-point's then because the 3-points were going to be cycled soon after. Before the cycle, both 3 and 4 point cards were allowed to be used in standard.

It would also be helpful if there was a list of what reprinted cards are also currently legal. I remember seeing a list somewhere but I can't seem to find it now. :(
