The first 3 rounds of the tournament will be swiss-style.
There will be 8-pods of 4 people.
Each pod will be using the Other Realms Commander Points Lists set up for this tournament.
There will be 7 different lists, and each pod will use the same list per round. \
Each round will be 2 hours and will be up to 3 games per round.
Each game will use the same list you had in game 1, allowing you to gain more achievements on the list, increasing your points for the round.
The swiss rounds will use the Partial Paris Mulligan rules. (A player may set aside any number of cards in their opening hand. The first time a player does so, they draw the same number of cards set aside. The second time, a player will get back 1 card for each 2 cards they set aside. The third time, they will get 1 card for every 3 they put back, etc.)
At the end of the 3 rounds, the 8 people with the highest point totals will move on to the Top 8.
In the Top 8 portion, games will be 1v1, best of 1.
The winner will advance to the next round.
Life totals will start at 30, with NO COMMANDER DAMAGE special rules in effect.
Top 8 will use the “Vancouver Mulligan” rules. (A player may mulligan, taking 1 less card each time they choose to mulligan. When the player decides to keep their hand, if it has less than 7 cards, they will scry 1 before the game starts)
Players will be required to submit a decklist prior to the start of the tournament.
Tournament officials will be performing random deck checks at the beginning or end of each round.
For each deck list violation during the first 3 rounds, the player will lose 5 points, and the card in question will be replaced with a Wastes basic land.
Any deck list violations discovered in the Top 8 will result in a game loss.
