MTR 2.1 Match Structure

A Magic match consists of a series of games that are played until one side has won a set number of games, usually two. Drawn games do not count toward this goal.

If the round ends before a player has won the required number of games, the winner of the match is the player who has won the most games at that point.

If both players have equal game wins, the match is a draw.

The Tournament Organizer may change the required number of games to be won for any portion of the tournament as long as this choice is announced before the tournament begins.

Match results, not individual game results, are reported to the DCI for inclusion in Planeswalker Points.
