MTR 2.14 Life Totals

At the start of a match, each player must indicate how he or she will keep track of his or her life total. This method must be visible to both players during the match.

A shared method is acceptable as long as all players in the match have access to it.

A change in a player’s life total should be accompanied by a verbal announcement by that player of the new life total.

If a player notices a discrepancy in a recorded or announced life total, he or she is expected to point it out as soon as the discrepancy is noticed.
