Details on Two-Headed Giant Format:

Two-Headed Giant is a fun multiplayer format where two-player teams battle against one another. Each team takes actions as a team rather than individually. There are some rules for Two-Headed Giant that differ from other multiplayer formats:

  • Each team has a shared life total that starts at 30 life.
  • Each team takes their turn together, meaning they draw as a team, attack as a team, block as a team, and go through all phases of the turn as a team.
  • The team that goes first skips their first draw step.
  • Teams do NOT share any resources other than life–meaning players can’t share cards in hand or mana. The short way of remembering this is any reference to “you” on cards still means each individual player.
  • Teams may share information and strategize together.
  • Each match will consist of a single game rather than a best 2-out-of-3 format.

A teams loses when their life total is 0 or less, when they accumulate fifteen or more poison counters, or when either team member is unable to draw a card from his or her deck. Damage and loss of life happens to individual players, and the effects are applied to the team’s shared life total. For example, once blocks are determined, any unblocked creatures are assigned to deal damage to one of the two players. Afterward, the damage is totaled and subtracted from the team life total.

Effects that read “each opponent” or “each player” affect each team member separately. For example, when Rabid Bloodsucker enters the battlefield, each player would lose 2 life—meaning each team loses 4 total life.

Prizing Format [Packs-For-All]:

• Each and every player will receive one pack of War of the Spark as a prize just for participating in the event.
• Each player will  win two additional booster packs of War of the Spark for each match win during the event.

This means if your team goes undefeated, each member will be awarded 7 sealed packs of War of the Spark as prizes (or, even if you don’t win a match, both of you will receive a participation pack)

All prizes will be awarded to players upon the completion of the third round, or at the time a player drops from the tournament in the case that a player needs to leave before the end of their third round match.
