・The order that decks are used in is not fixed. The player has a free choice of which deck they use in the first game of each round.
・A player will not be allowed to use the same deck that they used in the first game of a round in the second game and must instead choose from either of their two remaining decks. The third game of the round is carried out in the same way.
*The organisers will be lending out cards in order to reduce the burden on the players relating to deck composition. Players who wish to take advantage of this service should please specify the cards they wish to borrow and the language they need those cards in when submitting their deck registration form (registration scheduled for the previous day before the tournament). The deck registration form will be made available for download on the official website and other channels.
