When building a sealed pool for the RTR prerelease can I change my deck between rounds by adding and removing cards from my pool?
Is this rule specific for the prerelease or all sealed events? Are the rules for a draft event different?
if the event uses decklists you cannot change cards between matches, you have to revert it to your registered deck
between games you can sideboard as much as you want, you can even change the decksize and add additional land
this is true for all limited tournaments and differs from constructed tournaments (where you can only sideboard by switching out cards 1:1 and have to keep the same deck size)
not sure, but I thought I'd mention it just in case his does
If I remember pre-release correctly, you may make any changes you like to your deck between games.
-minimum 40 cards
-use only the cards you were given, plus any basic lands you wish
The judge may specifically announce that you can't do this. If he doesn't, you're free to make swaps between rounds.
Between rounds... but not between games? Or are they the same?
You can make swaps between games in any tournament format where there are multiple games per round. It's called sideboarding.
rounds means different matches in this case
within the match you can sideboard between games, I don't think a judge can stop that
a tournament has rounds, in those rounds you play matches, in those matches you play games (in those games you have turns, in those turns you have phases, in those phases you have steps :p)
Pre-releases are the only sanctioned event where you can sideboard between matches AND games. Every other sanctioned event you may only sideboard between games but between matches you must revert back to your origonal deck list.
Players participating in Limited tournaments that do not use decklists may freely change the composition of their decks between matches by exchanging cards from their deck for cards in their sideboard without being required to return their deck to its original composition before their next match. The Head Judge or Tournament Organizer must inform players if this option is not being used prior to the start of deckbuilding. This option is not available at Competitive or Professional REL tournament.
Confusion abounds! The rules answers everything concicesly, so I'm just going to quote them.
