Play Rules/Modifiers

For Sealed, unlike constructed games—where you arrive with a strategically created deck—Sealed games have you build a new deck from six unopened booster packs. Additionally, you may add as many basic lands (Plains, Islands, Swamps, Mountains, and Forests) as you’d like, even if they weren’t in the booster packs you opened. These games are 1v1 or multi-player and can be played as best of one or best of three.

  • A minimum deck size of 40 cards
  • Sideboard for your deck is any of the cards you opened
  • Format featured at prerelease events
