Decks: Locked. You cannot change decks between rounds.
Rounds: Double elimination, no time limits. First round byes (if needed) will go to the highest ranked players first. All other seeding will be done randomly. All rounds are played "live." Once pairings are announced, you will have 20 minutes to find your opponent before you are given a match loss.

Glitch/disconnect policy: Opening hand glitches are a replay (do not reconstruct). Other glitches that render the game unplayable will result in a reconstruct. First disconnection for each player in the tournament is a reconstruct. All future disconnections will result in a game loss (unless they occur during sidedecking).
