Armory Event Structure

Armory Events are fun, casual-level events. They do not require decklists unless specified by the tournament organizer.

Armory events award 3 XP per match win, except for Ultimate Pit Fight events which do not award XP.

Armory Events can only be run with Armory Kits; if these are not available, events should be run as On Demand.


Armory events can only be run once per week and Armory Kits support four weekly events.


Armory Events can be run using any of the following formats. Blitz and Booster Draft are the recommended formats for Armory Events:
