This is a sealed format tournament that will consist of 3 – 20 minute rounds, swiss style.
Each participant will be given 4 XY- Steam Siege booster packs and a 22 card evolution pack – featuring key cards from current and prior sets to build a deck of 40 cards. (Energies will be provided for you)
Deck construction time may vary from 20-30 minutes.
The standard 6 prize cards is reduced to 4 in this format.
Prizes will be one pack of Steam Siege per win. Everyone wins at least one pack!

Eldritch Moon continues where Shadows over Innistrad left off. It expands its horror theme into Lovecraftian Cosmic Horror. The expansion symbol of the set stylized silhouette of Emrakul, but also resembles Liana’s crown.
Madness, Transform, and Delirium are carried over from the previous set. Creatures that transform in colorless Eldrazi have a Eldritch moon symbol indicator for the front side and an Emrakul symbol indicator for the back side, showing this creature has joined Emrakul’s brood. This is symbolizing one transformation step further from that shown in Innistrad, Dark Ascension, and Shadows over Innistrad, where cards transformed from Sun symbol.jpg on their front sides to Moon symbol on their back sides.
There are three new named mechanics:
Meld, a keyword action that changes the card with meld and a specific other card into one oversized card. That single card only exists on the backs of the two other cards. Whenever the melded card leaves the battlefield, both cards go, and they each turn front face up again.
Emerge [cost] (You may cast this spell by sacrificing a creature and paying the emerge cost reduced by that creature’s converted mana cost).
Escalate, a keyword ability appearing on modal instants and sorceries. By paying the escalate cost, additional modes may be activated.
The release of MK III is June 29 and as a celebration we will be hosting an event. Players will use the models from one of the new Battleboxes for the Tournament.
$5 entry which the store will match towards the prize pool. The first 9 to sign up will recive a special kit that comes with a dry erase marker, glue, sleeves for your cards, and an assembly guide.
Boxes will be available the week before for pickup so you can assemble and maybe paint.
We will be using the steamroller 2016 Package and be playing RUMBLE scenerios. Open, assembe, and maybe even paint your battle box (should be in Wednesday the 29th). And bring your models to the event. We will play 3-4 rounds depending on attendance. Feel free to play extra games after as well.
40 Minute Rouds with 3 Min turns. Dice down at the 409 min mark. NO DEATHCLOCK.
