# of Games They Won

After advancing to the next round, you will have a week from the day that your most recent opponent was paired with you to play the match and to post results. If a player does not get in touch with their opponent by this point, they will be disqualified. If neither player gets in touch with their opponents, they will both be disqualified.

Prizes

The champion will receive foil conversions and/or full deck unlocks  for two decks of their choice, and the second place winner will receive one.

Good luck to all participants, and may the heart of the cards guide you to victory.

    “Deck sizes over 70 cards are not allowed for any reason.”
    Why? Doing so only hurts your chances.

    • Jake Petersen

      I copy/pasted the rules from a previous Duels 2013 contest, where a player using every card they could would counter the mill deck. It’s kind of irrelevant now, but oh well. What’s done is done.

  • Owl

    What gameplay is this for? Sealed Decks or Free for all (Planeswalkers campaign)?

    • Jake Petersen

      This is for the Constructed/Free-For-All decks. Sealed may come at a later date.

  • Yertle

    Where do we post what deck we’re using?

    • Yertle

      Also are the decks from deck pack 2 allowed?

      • Jake Petersen

        You’ll post what deck you used in the first round report, and then you’ll be using that deck throughout the tournament, so you have until your first match to decide. And yes, decks from Deck Pack 2 are allowed if you so choose.

    I forfeit the matches as I won’t be able to play for some time :(

    • Jake Petersen

      Unfortunate. Good luck to Draconar1us against Yertle!

  • Ben of Brisbane

    Auunj and I won’t be able to complete our match, I’m afraid, at least not in a timely manner. We’ve both had fairly hectic weeks and so we haven’t been able to link up, and he’s heading away for all of next week and won’t have internet access. :(
