Tournament Rules, Format, and More

Format of the tournament

Premodern Team Unified (Multi-player format with 3 players per team)

Team Unified Constructed (aka Team Unified) is a multi-player regular constructed format, with only one very important constraints: the whole team shares a unique card pool. In other words, in Team United decks, no card (except for basic lands) may appear in more than four copies across the decks of the entire team.

For example, let's say one team member plays RG Goblins, including in their list 4x Mogg Fanatic, 2x Naturalize in Main + 2x Naturalize in Sideboard. The other team players will not be able to include any copies of those cards as overall the team is already playing 4 copies each. Similarly, if a player would play 2x Stifle in their deck, the whole team would still have 2 slots available to add `Stifle to their decks.

The Premodern Team Unified format will essentially combine the Team United constructed rules, with the pool of Premodern-legal cards. In Premodern Team United, every team will be composed by three players.

More details about Pairings

Pairings

Pairings will be generated by randomly distributing players in multiple PODS comprising more or less the same number of players - ideally 5+.

Players in each POD will have to play against each other player in their POD.
The Top 1 or 2 players in each POD will pass to the elimination rounds.

In this schema, players don't need to wait each other to play their rounds.
They just need to play, and elimination ranking will be determined based on
`GWR`/`MWR` stats.

Each round will be 50 minutes

Additional Info

Pairings

Pairings will follow POD rules, and will be done per-team. In other words, every team will face each other team, and MUs of each player within a team will be decided by the team itself
