Make sure you have a current Wizards Account and the Magic Companion App

Wizards of the Coast has a system for running and participating in events, including an app that will quickly tell you your seat assignments and current standings. You need a current Wizards Account if you do not yet have one. The Companion app is optional, but very helpful.

The following game play guidelines are optional, but must be adhered to at the request of either player:

  • Players may only shuffle or cut their own decks.
  • Cards must remain on the owner’s side of the table when control is changed.
  • Cards attached to cards owned by other players should not physically touch.
  • Mechanics that require an opponent to search a player’s library, hand, or graveyard are performed by the owner displaying that zone to the active player without cards changing hands.
