Based on your feedback, we’ve created registration packages that everyone can enjoy and provided add-ons that you can use to customize your Grand Prix experience!
This is a constructed main event, and decklists are required. All players, regardless of whether or not they have byes, may submit their decklists either on site or online.
Players without byes should submit their decklists on Saturday morning when players are seated for Round 1. Please have your decklist ready by 9:00 AM. Late submissions may result in tardiness penalties.
Players with byes may submit their decklists either Friday evening at Customer Service or Saturday Morning at the Blue Main Event stage before 9:00 AM. Late submissions may result in tardiness penalties.
Players with or without byes may submit their decklists online at my.CFBEvents.com. Select your event and click on the “Submit Decklist” link, then fill out the form.
