MTR 7.5 Sealed Deck Pool Registration

In Sealed Deck tournaments, the Head Judge may require players to perform a Sealed Deck pool registration procedure prior to deck construction:

  • Each player is distributed the appropriate number of booster packs. The boosters should be marked in a way that distinguishes they came from the Tournament Organizer for that tournament.
  • Players on one side of each table open their boosters (Player A). The player directly across (Player B) observes this. Both players will observe and verify the contents of those boosters. After this process, the opened cards are stacked face down in a single pile and placed near Player B.
  • Player B will now open their boosters. Player A observes. Both players will observe and verify the contents. After this process, the opened cards are stacked face down in a single pile and placed near Player A.
  • Player A then sorts and registers the contents of Player B’s pool, and vice versa.
  • After registration, each player returns the registered card pool to the player who originally opened the pool.
  • Players build and record decks as normal.
