WHEN: Games start at 8:00pm EST (00:00 UTC). You can pre-reg any time before at Gatherling.com. If you need help pm me or ask someone the day of the event before the event begins. You must be present at 8:00pm EST otherwise you will be dropped from the event. Also, you must have entered your decklist to receive a Round 1 pairing. Failure to enter a decklist will result in your being dropped from the event.
Decks must be at least 60 cards with an optional 15 card sideboard. All commons and uncommons from 8th Edition / Mirrodin forward are legal with the exception of those on the ban list. If your deck contains illegal cards in the first round you will receive a match loss and be allowed to replace the illegal cards with basic lands for the following rounds. If illegal cards are found to be in your deck in the following rounds you may be dropped or allowed to continue per the host's discretion. Gatherling validates decks so make sure it doesn't show any errors after you enter your deck and you should be good to go.
