HOW TO PLAY BRAWL Choose your champion! Brawl is a little like Standard, a little like Commander, and a uniquely exciting deck-brewing challenge. Build a deck around a specific legendary creature or planeswalker from the Standard card pool, and battle against friends in one-on-one or multiplayer free-for-all games.

YOUR DECK 1 commander card (any legendary creature or planeswalker from a set currently in Standard) 59 other cards (also from sets currently in Standard) Only one copy of any card, except for basic lands The color identity of all cards in your deck must fall within the color identity of your commander (color identity encompasses colored mana symbols in both the card's cost and its rules text—for example, Shalai, Voice of Plenty's color identity is green-white).

Exception: if your commander is colorless, you can play unlimited copies of any one type of basic land.

THE GAME 2–6 players With 3 or more players, start at 30 life; with only 2 players, start at 25 life The first mulligan is to seven cards, then each mulligan afterward results in one fewer card (six, five, four etc.) All commanders start in their command zone Commanders can be cast for their mana cost, plus 2 mana more for each time they've been put back in the command zone Last player standing wins COMPREHENSIVE RULES OF MAGIC

QUICK FACTS COLOR IDENTITY A card's color identity is not quite the same as a card's color: it can come from any part of that card, including its casting cost and any mana symbols in its rules text. Every card in your Brawl deck must only use mana symbols that also appear on your commander. (Colorless cards are allowed in any deck.)

Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood has a black mana cost and an activated ability that requires red mana. Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood's color identity is black and red.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary is a colorless artifact with a triggered ability that requires green mana. So Lifecrafter's Bestiary's color identity is green.

COMMAND ZONE This is the special game zone where your commander resides when it is not in play. Each commander starts the game face up in its controller's command zone. A commander can be cast from the command zone, as though it were in your hand, for its normal costs, plus an additional two mana for each previous time it's been cast from the command zone this game. If your commander would change zones (i.e., be put into your library, hand, graveyard, or exile from anywhere), you may return it to your command zone instead.

STANDARD Any card that appears in a Standard-legal Magic set (with the exception of the banned cards listed below) can be put into a Brawl deck.

BRAWL BANNED CARDS The following cards are banned in Brawl and cannot be included in your deck or used as your commander:

Sorcerous Spyglass Oko, Thief of Crowns Golos, Tireless Pilgrim Winota, Joiner of Forces Lutri, the Spellchaser Drannith Magistrate Note: The regular Standard banned list does not apply to Brawl. If a card from a Standard-legal set isn't listed here, it's fine to use.

Players can report their own score.

Schedule Frist round pairings will be posted 30 mins prior to first round starting. Order of play. Depending on number of sign ups this will be a 2 day event. If we have a 1 day 5 round event then all 5 rounds will be played on day 1 with a match clock of 60 mins (30 min each player-standard tournament mode match clock). If we end up with a 2 day event, 6 rounds or more, then day 2 will consist of all rounds past round 5 including final and 3rd place finish.

Because this is an online tournament we ask you to respect the starting time. if any player in a match takes longer than 15 mins to check into their match they will have conceded that round and if such happens again, will be removed from the event.

Please make sure you are able to attend in your own time zone.

Thank you and have fun.

1st: 15$ USD

2nd: 10$ USD

3rd: 5$ USD
