    Player Eligibility: Players may not be simultaneously enrolled in both tournaments. Players must have dropped from the sealed pack tournament if they wish to play in the constructed tournament.

    Deck Registration:
    Limited: In the Sealed Pack format, each player will receive five boosters (set TBD). Players will have 20 minutes to open the packs, sort the cards, register all the cards on the checklist, and turn in the registered cards and checklist to the judges. All registered decks will then redistributed at random. Players then have 30 minutes to construct a deck of at least 30 cards from the cards they receive. There is currently no side-deck in the Vs. System, so once the deck is completed and the decklist is registered and submitted, the deck must match this list throughout the entire tournament.
    Constructed: Every player must provide us with a legible copy of their decklist. Blank decklist forms will be available at the tournament. We will also have judges on hand to check your deck and sleeves before the tournament begins. We HIGHLY recommend that players take advantage of this in order to avoid possible penalties later on.

    Side Events: Booster draft and constructed side events will be offered throughout the day.

    I'll be there if it snows or not. I haven't played but 1-2 times since the 10k and its been killing me.

    What do you predict the meta being like here. I say we see the standard CS and TT decks. There should be a few more CE builds and TNB may see some play. Other than that I see the rest being wide open. There may be a possibilty of top 8 being all different decks.

    I'm expecting CE, Chicken Squad, maybe Avengers, a touch of New School, maybe 1 Teen Titans, and I'm sure a Curve or two.

    I also wouldn't be surprised to see a few Injustice Gang builds.
