2016 Events & Formats
Gen Con events are live and ready to be signed up for! In addition to last year’s learn-to-plays and World Championship, we also have two new constructed formats and a cube event. Here’s some information on the events that we’re running this year, the constructed formats rules, and updated rules for the World Championship.
We have also created a new PDF deck list for those of you that would like to fill one in (we’d appreciate it!). You can use the fillable PDF to email us your deck list before the event or to print and turn in at the event. Alternatively, we’ll have paper copies for you to fill on site.
Players of all skill levels are welcome to play and are encouraged to attend all events. If you have any questions, you can reach out to us via email or Twitter.
This is the Harry Potter version of EDH or Highlander. We’re really excited to see the type of decks that are created when you’re only allowed to use one copy of each card.
Choose your starting witch or wizard and construct a 100-card singleton deck. This means no more than 1 of each card in your deck. The tournament will be a swiss tournament. Players will play the best of 1 game per round. Number of rounds will be dependent on number of entrants. Winner will receive a special trophy!
You’re not a witch or wizard, but a squib! Influenced by the Magic The Gathering format Peasant, you’re using only commons and uncommons.
There will be no starting character. Construct a 60-card deck that consists of commons and no more than 10 uncommons. The tournament will be a swiss tournament. Players will play the best of 3 game per round, 50 minute rounds. Number of rounds will be dependent on number of entrants. Winner will receive a special trophy!
The only change is that players choosing to play with non-local language cards must have a local language version available outside of their decks for their opponents or the judge to reference. However, players may use Lesson cards in any language without providing a local-language equivalent.
We are not enforcing players to fill out and turn in deck list registration, but hoping that players will do so. This way we can help build a database of decks!
There will be a more detailed post about the cube and the cards within it as we get closer to Gen Con. Check back soon and follow Harry Potter TCG on Twitter for updates.
