Sealed Deck

Sealed Deck is an easy and fun way to play Flesh and Blood Trading Card Game and a great way to get new cards for your collection! Simply turn up, open 6 booster packs, and make your best deck from the cards you have to work with. Part of the fun is getting to play with cards you may never consider using in other formats.

Deck Construction

Players open 6 booster packs and use the contents to construct a 30-card minimum deck (not including hero, weapon, and equipment cards). Note - it’s during the start of game procedure that the exact 30 cards (minimum) are chosen. Typically, a player will change a small number of cards in their deck based on the hero they are about to play against.

A deck may only contain Generic cards and cards with the same class as your hero card.

The 3-card limit applicable to constructed formats does not apply to limited formats. A sealed deck may contain any number of copies of each unique card. For example, if your card pool contains 5 copies of Scar for a Scar (1), you may include all 5 copies in your deck.

Deck Construction – Heroes and Weapons

Only young hero cards are legal for limited formats (sealed deck and booster draft).

Players may add young hero and weapon card(s) of their choice to their card pool during deck construction. Cards added this way are from a publicly available pool of young hero and weapon token cards provided by the tournament organizer, or by pooling the token cards opened from the booster packs between all players in the event. (Young hero and weapon token cards are plentifully available in booster packs.)

For a tournament that does not require card pool registration, players may change hero between rounds.
