Many people (including Magic’s own Mark Rosewater) have been attributed to some variation of the the quote, “restriction breeds creativity”. Let’s put that idea to the test by placing a rarity restriction on our Commander players. In Pauper Commander, players must build a deck using only cards that have been printed at the common rarity, which is denoted with a black set symbol on the card. The only exception is their Commander, which must be a legendary creature (or other legendary card that specifically says it can be your Commander) that has been printed at the uncommon rarity, which has a silver set symbol.
5:30pm – Registration begins for any players that did not sign up ahead of time through our website.
6:00pm – Round 1 begins! There will be two 90 minute rounds. During each round, players will earn points through an achievement system. A player’s total accumulated points will determine their placing at the end of the event.
Around 9:00pm – Prizes are awarded. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will receive Booster Packs. 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th place will receive Promo Packs. All participants will also get a promotional Magic card, and a Missing Pawn card they can use during our Piecing It Together events on Sundays.
