Tournament Format and Rules

This Old School 93-94 tournament will observe the Banned and Restricted List found in the rules on the EC Old School 93-94 rules page here. This page always has a complete list of deck construction rules, sets allowed, errata, and the most up to date Banned and Restricted List. This is a non-proxy event, and per the rules above you are allowed to play any reprint if it is (1) Original Art, (2) Original Frame, and (2) Non-foil. This includes Chronicles Erhnam Djinn, 4th Edition Sylvan Library, Timeshifted Psionic Blast, and CE/IE Moxes, for example. We have now set up an Old School Lending Library, with tons of cards available for you to borrow for a specific day or event, ranging from Swords to Plowshares to dual lands to Field of Dreams to CE Power. It can be found online here.
