Deckbuilding Rules:

This event is in the Gentry format, so no more than 4 unique Rare/ Mythic Rare cards and no more than 15 uncommons are allowed. If you have any concerns about your opponent’s deck’s legality, please contact an admin on Discord.

Tournament rules:

The Gentry Leaderboard will be held over 4 weeks. Every player will play 4 rounds of Swiss play, with the possibility of a bye in case of uneven players. Every round will start at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and the final results must be reported by 11 p.m. on Mondays. You are to arrange a play moment with your opponent to play. If you can not, a final call will be on Monday at 8 p.m. If you and your opponent can’t reach an agreement and one of you can’t play on Monday night, that player will receive a Match Loss. Matches will be Best-of-1 format. Please take a screenshot of the Victory/Defeat screen and send it to one of the admins in the Discord.

Joining the Discord server is a ‘soft’ requirement. All rules and tournament structures are based around having the players there. If you choose not to or are unable to do so, send an email to the organiser at and we’ll see what we can do.
