The minimum requirement to launch the event is 17 players, that would mean 5 rounds of swiss followed by a top 8. If we reach 33+ players, it will be 6 rounds + top 8.

All matches are to be played in the 'Tournament match' mode. When you challenge someone, do not forget to switch from 'Challenge Match' to 'Tournament match'. Your game will be played in an romanogreek Arena setting, if you have another backdrop, restart your match.

You will have access to all players' decklists once the event has started. That means you will know what to expect. In round 1, we will give extra time to check if your opponent has a legal list. From then on you can check that they are playing what they listed.


Since this is a unique setting and there are very specific challenges and issues that need to be addressed, please find all measures below.

Illegal decklist Arena checks for Standard legality, but not Gentry numbers. If you see your opponent has duplicate rares, more than 4 rares, or more than 15 uncommons, report this to the TO. If this happens during the pre-round 1 check, there is no problem and the player can correct their decklist. If it happens after round 1 has started, the penalty is a Game-loss.

Illegal deck If at any point in the match it becomes clear to you that your opponent has cheated by playing something else than the decklist they submitted, make a screenshot of proof and send it to the TO. This screenshot can be of duplicate rares, uncommons they are not supposed to have, etc etc. The penalty for this infraction, if confirmed, is a disqualification. In case they are playing a completely different deck, this can be downgraded to a Match Loss. This distinction is made at the discretion of the TO.

Connection issues You are taking responsibility for your internet connection. Only in case the TO notices a Arena server based issue, will match outcome be altered. This is to avoid people "disconnecting" to force a game to restart.

Tardiness The running of this event relies on people challenging eachother in game. For that reason, rounds will have a very strict timing. When round 1 starts, the starting time for round 2 will also be set and announced. From that announcement, you have 10 minutes to start a match with your opponent. If you are not in game after 10 minutes, contact the TO through the chat on MTGMelee. If a round is started earlier because all results are in, you will not get a penalty until the 10 minutes after the originally announced round time.

Bribery Offering something to another player in exchange for a draw or concession ruins the integrity of the tournament and will not be tolerated. If your opponent makes you such an offer, take a screenshot and send it to the TO. The penalty for this is Disqualification.
