Event description
The Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Ottawa communities are hosting our very first Boreal Community Cup.

About this Event

Winter got us cooking up a little something to keep the good vibes flowing. In this event, Old School communities are competing against each other to win the Community Cup. An entire community, and not a person, wins the Cup. Communities get points for their performance in the Swiss, spice and their use of their Community card (more on this later).

If you are not part of a Canadian community, that’s okay. You will still be able to play with other outsiders as a community.

Event specifics

  • One-day, webcam event, played over Discord. You must join the Canadian Discord to participate.
  • 6 rounds of Swiss. No Top 8
  • Entry fee: $15
  • Ruleset: Boreal; Proxies allowed.

The winning community picks the charity

Before the tournament, communities decide what Canadian charity they're playing for.

At the end of the tournament, the charity chosen by the community with the highest score receives all entry fees and raffle proceeds. (Charity subject to review by organizers. Please choose something with an online donation link.)

The organizers will identify a national Canadian charity in the event the outsiders win.

Community scoring

At the end of the tournament, Community scores are determined by adding:

  • 1 point per members' match win
  • 1 point per Community card in members' main decks (more on this, below)
  • 1 point per members' spice vote (more on this, below)

These points go towards their community’s score. If you aren’t part of the 6 Canadian Old School communities represented, your points go towards the outsiders.

Deck construction: Community cards

Different cards are assigned to each community to represent them. The more they're used by their members, the more points a community gets. For each copy of a Community card you run, your community gets as many points as if you won a match. Normal deck construction rules apply, so you can play up to 4 of your Community's card.

To maintain variety, there is a twist. Mana spent to play your Community card can be used as though it was of any color. Your card does not change colour. So your black Community card can be cast with white mana, and is affected by Bad Moon, Circle of Protection:Black, and Lifeforce.
