Knowledge of this information is necessary to understand how to prepare for and enjoy the tournament:
• Registration Form
• Official Deck List (fillable)
• Forbidden and Limited List
Caution: Expensive Cards are a Target of Theft – Players may socialize and trade as they see fit. Trading conduct is not the responsibility of the Tournament staff. Think carefully about the safety of bringing card collections! Thieves target large collections, expensive cards. Focus 100% on your cards, especially if you hand them to someone for review. Beware: If your deck contains expensive cards you’ll need to be careful during the clean up phase – if you are distracted your opponent or a spectator may seize the opportunity to grab expensive cards.
