You’ll gain one Æmbershard for each event you participate in, plus one Æmbershard per game you win.

Archon Format unless Otherwise Specified

These events will be run as the Archon format (bring the deck of your choice) unless specified as a Sealed event ahead of time.

Chains and Power Levels

In ChainBound events, your deck’s wins and losses will be tracked. Decks that are performing especially well will acquire natural chains that must be applied to the start of every ChainBound game played, as well as Power Levels, which will eventually be required for participation in certain events!
