Grand Archive Mercurial Heart Draft Release Event – Gnome Games Green Bay East – $30

Grand Archive Release Green Bay East

Come join us in celebrating the newest release from Grand Archive, Mercurial Heart! 

Play at Gnome Games Green Bay East as we host a 3 Round Swiss Draft event with Cards from the newest set! Each player gets 6 packs to start and build a deck from!

Our event is Win-a-Match-Win-A-Pack, with a $30 entry. We hope to see you there!

Players are placed in pods of up to 8 players and packs are randomly distributed
from a single Main Set booster box such that each player has 6 packs each. Cards are
drafted one at a time and players can freely add one Lv 0 spirit champion to complete
their deck after drafting is finished. All cards not in either the Main Deck or Material Deck
are considered sideboard cards. There are no size or copy restrictions to the Material
Deck, unlike Constructed, and Main Decks are only have a 30-card minimum size.

For 6-pack drafts, each player starts by opening their first pack, sets the cards facing down, and
counts the cards to ensure the proper number of cards in the pack. If players open an error
pack, they must notify a judge. Any token cards, rules cards, or other non-game cards are
removed. If there are no issues, the draft can start with each player picking one card to be set
aside face-down. Players pass the rest of the pack contents to the right. Each player will then
receive cards from the player to the left and must pick one card, and pass the remaining cards
to the right, again. This process will continue until no cards are left to choose from. Players open
another pack after each player has finished picking from cards in the first pack. They will do the
same process, except cards will be passed to the left instead of the right. The next four packs
are picked from in the same way, the third pack is passed to the right, the fourth pack to the left,
the fifth to the right, and the sixth to the left.
Cards that have been picked and set aside cannot be returned to the pack after the remaining
cards in the pack have been passed to the next player. Players cannot reveal their card
selections to other players and must do their best to ensure the face of their cards, selected or
pending passing, is not revealed to the other players. Players are not permitted to reveal any
hidden information regarding their picks, cards they are passing, cards they wish to pick, or
cards they wish others to pick. Players are allowed to look at cards they have previously drafted
and set aside at any time.
