All you need to bring is yourself! We even provide free deck sleeves with your entry fee!

From your sealed boxes, in which you receive 6 boosters, you will create a deck of 40 cards minimum deck then play other participating players in a Swiss style tournament.

This event will take place with regular rules enforcement, including the Vancouver Mulligan Rule.
