Tournament check-in is also required (opens 30 minutes prior to the start time)

Please keep your Limitless Dashboard open during the event.


This tournament is played in the Modern EX format.

This format consists of the BW & XY blocks (Black & White through XY Evolutions, including all BW & XY Black Star promos).

Decklists are OPEN for this event.


PHASE 1: Swiss Rounds

  • BO1: You'll play a single game against your opponent.
  • Rounds are 25 minutes long (any incomplete matches will be scored a loss)
  • Top 4 players advance to the next phase.

PHASE 2: Top Cut

  • BO3: You'll play a best-of-3 set against your opponent.
  • Rounds are 50 minutes long.


Check In Policy: Players must CHECK-IN within the first 5 minutes of each round. Failure to do so will result in a game loss. In an effort to ensure as many players as possible are paired with active opponents, those who fail to check in may be dropped. If you miss a round by accident but still intend to play in future rounds, it's your responsibility to make the organizers aware that you wish to continue in the event.

Deck Sharing ON: The Deck List Sharing feature must always be turned ON in the game settings.

Match Timers ON: When you challenge your opponent you must always enable the Timed Match option.

Going First/Second: The winner of the coin flip decides who goes first for Game 1. For Games 2 & 3 in best-of-three matches, the loser of the prior game gets to decide who goes first. (In cases where the winner of the previous game wins the coin flip and selects the wrong option by accident, the opponent is entitled to request a restart of the affected game).

Wrong Deck Selected: If a player chooses the wrong deck by accident, they must declare so immediately before any actions are taken. If Deck Sharing is on, the opposing player should be able to verify that the deck was in fact incorrect and the game should be replayed. If any conditions above are not met, the result is a game loss.

Illegal Decklist: If a player is discovered to have submitted a deck that does not comply with the rules, they will be dropped from the event without exception. It is the player’s responsibility to submit a legal decklist in advance; no changes of any kind are allowed once the event has started.

Disconnections/Leaving a Game: In the event of a disconnect, the timer will continue to run while the player attempts to reconnect. If the game ends the match due to inactivity or a player leaves the game for any other reason, it is considered a game loss.

Need Help?: Please notify the organizer immediately if you have any concerns. Use the Request a Judge button here on Limitless or get in touch with @rabidragon#3983 on our league's Discord.
