Two-Headed Giant Commander Tournament

Two-Headed Giant Commander Event Image MC.jpg

Grab a friend and get ready for another Two-Headed Giant Commander tournament! This time it's going to be a little different so be sure to check out the description below.

Choose your partner and work together before the day of the tournament to create two complementary decks based on a custom decklist. We're following normal Two-Headed Giant rules, with a few exceptions. Each team will start the game with 60 life. If a single commander deals 21 damage to a team, they lose the game. If a team has 20 poison counters, they lose the game. Additionally, across the two decks, only one copy of any non-basic land card is allowed between them.

Decks must follow a custom banlist for this tournament, comprised of our in house Commander League banlist, the MTGO 1v1 Commander banlist, and a few special considerations for this particular format. The banlist will be listed at the end of this event description.

This tournament will consist of swiss rounds based on attendance, with an 80 minute timer for each round. At end of round, teams will have 3 total additional turns instead of the normal 5. We will also include a 30 minute break between rounds two and three.

Prizes for this tournament won't be lacking either. We're putting Masterpieces in the prize pool! In addition to that, we'll have Black Friday Treasure Chests and Ixalan Buy-a-Box packs going out to at least half the teams that play!
