Legal Decks

You must have and use a Commander Preconstructed Deck from the following sets:

  • The Brothers' War

  • Universes Beyond - Warhammer 40,000

  • Dominaria United

  • Battle for Baldur's Gate

  • Streets of New Capenna


  1. You must always use one of the Legendary Creatures that comes with the deck as your commander. 

  2. You choose which commander to use at the beginning of each game.  

  3. This deck will become modified as the league progresses.  The only restrictions on replacement cards is that they must follow the commander banned list

  4. A form will be provided to you to keep track of the removed and added cards. 

  5. Once removed, a card may only be put back in using one of your replacement slots for that week.


Modifying Your Deck

  • Week 1: Your initial deck must be the Commander Deck out of the box with no changes. Each match, you may choose which commander to use.  This will be your deck for the league.

  • Week 2: You may replace up to 7 of the cards from the original deck with up to 7 of your own.   

  • Week 3: You may replace up to 7 of the cards from the original deck with up to 7 of your own. 

  • Week 4: You may replace up to 6 of the cards from the original deck with up to 6 of your own.


Each week you will play two matches in pods of three or four (and occasionally five) players.  We will try to make it so that you play as many different people as possible over the course of the league.



We will count best 3 of 4 weeks for you.  We will use a hybrid scoring system that combines three elements: the place you finish, the amount of people you eliminate, and Achievements.

Based on the place you finish:

  • 1 point if first to be eliminated

  • 2 points if second to be eliminated

  • 3 points if the third to be eliminated

  • 4 points for winning the game

  • In the case of multiple people being eliminated at once, those players take the average of the point totals that would have been assigned.

  • In the case of a three-player game, there will be a proxy player at the table that starts with 40 life, has no responses, and never blocks.

Based on the amount of people you eliminate: 1 point for each person you eliminate.

You eliminate another player by one of the following methods:

  • Damage

  • Mill (last player to move card from library to another zone or person who forces final draw)

  • Card effect you control that causes a player to lose the game (Door to Nothingness)


Achievements are special conditions that you unlock each week.  Completing an Achievement can score you one additional point per pod (limit one per player per game).  The catch is, once you complete an Achievement, you may not complete that one again for the duration of the league.  These Achievements will be listed on the deck list form.  The Achievements for this league are:

  1. Test Run: Cast a permanent spell by using an alternative cost five times.†

  2. Construct an Army: Control 10 or more artifact creature tokens.

  3. Emperor: Control 12 or more non-artifact creature tokens.

  4. Relics of the Past: Control seven or more "retro frame" cards.

  5. † Lone Warrior: Attack with a single creature and have an opponent lose the game during the same combat phase.

  6. † Board Control: Control 5 or more creatures while your opponents control no creatures. 

  7. † Double Dragon: Control 2 or more legendary Dragons. 

  8. † Car Collection: Control three or more Vehicles 

  9. † Natural 20: Roll a natural 20 on a d20.
