It will be taking place on Sunday July 5 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 5 PM UTC, and registrations will be open until 30 minutes before the start time. Take this opportunity to try out some of the new Core Set 2021 cards, see if they improve existing decks or create awesome new ones – or just take a backseat and tune into the coverage as we find out what’s good in the new Historic metagame.

EXTRANCE

Make sure that your Arena ID is available on Mtgmelee. This is quite literally the only way your opponent will be able to challenge you apart from trying to find similar usernames on Discord.

REGISTRATION ENDS 30 MINUTES BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT BEGINS.

IF YOU REGISTER AND ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18, YOU MAY STILL ENTER, YOU DO NOT QUALIFY FOR THE TOURNAMENT PRIZES.

TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE

When challenging, players should use the “Limited Tournament Match” or “Historic Tournament Match” challenge mode. Previous tournaments have reported problems with the “Historic Tournament Match” challenge mode not allowing Nexus of Fate, so bear this fact in mind when challenging your opponent.

The tournament will be composed of 7 Swiss-system rounds, which means that all players will be playing all 7 rounds against opponents with equal records, with the top 8 being decided by a point-based system.

After, the top 8 will compete in a bracket to determine a ranking.

Each round will be restricted to a 50 minute timer – if a pairing surpasses the 50 minute mark, participants are to immediately submit their current score (be it 1-0 or 1-1). This helps us keep the tournament going in a timely manner.

IF YOU AND YOUR OPPONENT ARE NOT MATCHED UP, CONTACT ORGANIZATION STAFF IMMEDIATELY SO THAT THEY CAN FIX THE SITUATION.

DECKLISTS

The tournament is open decklist. This means that you must submit your decklist before the tournament begins, otherwise you will be dropped from the tournaent. This also means that both you and your opponent will know each other’s decklists ahead of time. You can submit your decklist through the player controller.
