Details for Events

We usually play multi-Brawl as a series of matches, scoring points for each over the course of the evening. When an event is posted as ‘Casual’ it means the application of rules is more relaxed, typically allowing for deck changes and a reasonable number of proxied cards, but anything is allowed by agreement with the other players. These are are the rules we use:

Formal Match Rules

• Only 1 deck for all matches in the event • No sideboard and only 1 ‘Outside the Game’ card • You may also use a Companion card with your Commander • you must declare OTG and Companion cards before matches start • 4 player matches will be preferred (then 3 player, and finally 2 player) • If 2 player matches are required, they’re played as Best of Three • Matches are 60 minutes plus 1 extra turn for every player remaining (extra turns persists even if a player is subsequently eliminated) • Points – Win: 3 points; Lose: 0 points; Tie: 1 point each ‘Win’ means to have defeated all opponents ‘Lose’ means to be eliminated before the match ends ‘Tie’ means to be still alive when the match ends • Players may join the tournament after it’s begun • At 22:45, any remaining matches will be stopped and scored • Prize giving will follow the tournament’s conclusion


The prize pool is divided by 6ths, and awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd places as 3/6, 2/6, 1/6 Where places are tied and the prizes can’t be evenly divided, (eg. 1st and 2nd are tied, perhaps providing 5 packs) they’re rounded down, and the remainder carried over to the following week. This is repeated for each slot and will not be varied.

Scoring formula

Score 3 points for a win; 0 points for a loss. 1 point each for a tie. ‘Win’ means to have defeated all opponents ‘Lose’ means to be eliminated before the match ends ‘Tie’ means to be still alive when the match ends This is the system we devised in partnership with Hareruya’s Events Team last year, intended to discourage individual attacks and reward only the most ambitious victory in which all other players are defeated. https://www.hareruyamtg.com/en/events/124612/detail Match pairing prefers unique 4-player matches, but note this is more difficult in smaller groups. Points are awarded for each match played, and the winners are the players with the highest total scores.

Brawl Format

Brawl is a competitive Commander variant, using 60-card decks from the Standard format. https://magic.wizards.com/en/game-info/gameplay/formats/brawl https://whatsinstandard.com Cost: the cost of an effective Brawl deck starts at around $50, and because it’s a singleton format, it’s very difficult for costs to exceed about $150, so the notorious pay-to-play aspect of MTG is nicely managed.

  • please do not attend if you feel in the least bit unwell in any way
