Season Schedule

SPDC Season 19 will begin on October 25, and run approximately every Thursday thereafter, based on host availability and holiday schedule.

Weekly events happen on Thursdays, with pre-registration running through PDCMagic Gatherling from the previous Saturday. In-game registration starts at 8:30p US Eastern time, and the tournament begins at 9:00p US Eastern time.

SPDC Season 19 will finish when the Magic Online standard format rotates. That will occur around Fall 2013.

Tournament Rules

  • Deck Construction - All decks must conform to the "Standard Pauper" format filter on MTGO. The same deck must be used throughout all rounds of the tournament, with no changes between rounds. Any changes to decks between rounds will result in disqualification.
  • Registration - Players can pre-register for the tournament using Gatherling by signing in and clicking "register" on the Player CP. Players can also register by joining /join spdccom and typing 'reg' during the registration period (usually 30 minutes before the starting time).
  • Tournament Structure - The tournament will be run as a Swiss tournament, with a single-elimination cutoff after the swiss rounds. The number of swiss rounds and playoff players is determined by the number of entrants:

    • < 12 players: tournament will be cancelled.
    • 12-17 players: 3 rounds of swiss, and a top 4 playoff.
    • 18-23 players: 3 rounds of swiss, and a top 8 playoff.
    • 24-39 players: 4 rounds of swiss, and a top 8 playoff.
    • 40+ players: 5 rounds of swiss, and a top 8 playoff.

  • Pairings will be announced at the start of every round in the /join pdc channel, and also posted on the forum thread, and be available from your PDCMagic Gatherling Player CP.
  • Matches are played in the Anything Goes room, which is in the Casual Play section under the Play menu.
  • Matches should be set to be Standard Pauper format, watchable and labeled clearly with SPDC 19.XX Round N.
  • Players who do not show up within 10 minutes of the pairing announcement will receive a game loss. Players who do not show up within 15 minutes of the pairing announcement will receive a match loss. If a player does not actively request to stay in the tournament, players missing a round will be automatically dropped.
  • Results should be reported through Gatherling, or in the results channel at /join spdccom by stating "W 2-0", "W 2-1", "L 1-2", or "L 0-2". Drops are allowed at any time by announcing it, or contacting the host.
  • If you win because your opponent's timer reaches zero or the inactivity timer ends the game, your score becomes 2-0
  • Intentional Draws are not allowed. We are here to have fun and play magic.


Season Points and Championship
Season points are cumulative throughout the season, and will be tracked through Gatherling. The season point leaderboard link will be posted here as soon as it is available. Points are distributed as follows:

  • All players participating in an event will receive 1 point.
  • The winner of each event receive 8 extra points.
  • The runner-up of each event receive 6 extra points.
  • Top 4 players receive 4 extra points.
  • Top 8 players receive 2 extra points.

Top 8 players must report decks in Gatherling to receive their season points. Any top 8 or better result who hasn't reported their deck, or has not reported a valid deck, by one week after a tournament is played, will receive 0 points for that event.

The Championship will be played as a priority registration event. The top 32 players in the season standings are guaranteed to get a priority invitation.

Player Conduct Guidelines

  • Players are expected to follow widely-accepted PDC Community guidelines for conduct to maintain a fair and civil playing environment.
  • Watchers are expected not to chat in other games.
  • Watchers must respect the wishes of players.
  • Players are requested to contact the host via private messaging to report a concern regarding player conduct.
  • Slow-rolling, bribery, and dropping without notifying the host will not be tolerated and will be grounds for disciplinary action.
  • The host reserves the right to use disciplinary measures to enforce these guidelines.
