Put your Standard deck to the test at Aether Revolt Game Day!

One week after the world’s best players showcase Aether Revolt’s possibilities at the Pro Tour, turn out to put your updated decks to the test at Game Day. Game Day is a Standard tournament, meaning you will need a minimum 60 card Standard legal deck with up to 15 card sideboard. This site can help you know what is legal in Standard. Need to make some changes? Check out this article for the latest winning decks, and use Gatherer to search for the best upgrades for your deck. We have tons of singles in the store to help you complete your list, and all the accessories to protect your cards. Call, message or visit us to secure those cards!

Start of the Tournament

Once you’ve selected and built your deck, come in before one of our two Game Day Tournaments and sign up. We recommend coming in about 30 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure you can register without any rushing or difficulties. Entry is $5, which goes toward prize support in the form of Aether Revolt booster packs. When the Tournament starts, our Judge will call for everyone’s attention and outline some basic facts about the event. Pairings will either be posted on our TV screen or, if there are only a few players, announced verbally. The tables for the tournament will have numbered tents, so you can easily find the table you and your opponent will be playing at. Go to that table, set-up your stuff, and greet your opponent when they arrive. The Judge will bring your participation promo card, “Trophy Mage”, around to you during round 1.

Playing the rounds

This type of tournament will have you play each round against a new opponent. You will play games until one player has two wins. Typically you will play two or three games against your opponent each round. Result slips will be provided at each table to record how the games went. Mark how many games you won in the ‘Win’ column. If there were any draws note them in the ‘Draw’ column. Only mark in the ‘Drop’ column if you are done playing in the event ‘Drop’ means you won’t be paired for any further rounds. Finally, sign the slip at the bottom and the winner of the round must turn in the slip at the Judge’s station.

Using the sideboard

At the beginning of each round your deck should be the same as when you started the tournament. After the first game in a round you can change your deck using your sideboard. You may add cards from your sideboard and remove cards from your deck, so long as your deck is a minimum of 60 cards. Any cards removed from your deck are now part of your sideboard. You may do this again after the second game, if a third game is to be played. Remember, your deck needs to be the same at the beginning of each round. De-sideboard after your match is over.

Playoffs

After the swiss, usually 4 or 5 rounds, players will collect their pack prizes. There will then be a ‘Cut to the Top’. Usually this means the top 8 players from the swiss standings will enter a single elimination playoff bracket. Each of the top 8 players will receive their full-art foil promo card, “Yahenni’s Expertise”, at the beginning of the playoffs. After 3 rounds of single-elimination matches, the winner will receive the exclusive Aether Revolt Game Day Champion playmat, featuring Ajani.
