View Full Version : Deck swap?
So I was looking at the advanced copy of the Heralds of Galactus deck registration form, and in the top right corner, it talks about deck swap - "Deck Swap: When instructed, pass the deck along with this decklist." Does this mean I'm going to lose the deck I put together? Also, the top-center of the form has "Player Registering Deck" and then next to it "Player Playing Deck".
Can anyone tell me what's up with this? Thanks.

What sometimes happens, usually in Sealed PCQs, is that you'll open 5 packs, register the contents on the decklist, then give those cards and the decklist to the judge. They will then randomly hand out the cards and decklists back to people, so that you don't get back the cards you registered. Then you'll build your deck out of those cards. It's done to prevent people from adding extra cards to their card pool (although this is pretty tough to pull off at a sneak preview, since no one has the cards yet).
Thanks, but that is really stupid and I hope that isn't the case. what if i get every Infinity Gem AND the gauntlet AND a Thanos or 2 and have to give it up???? That's like giving your baby to strangers!!!!! Then again, if I DON'T get those cards, maybe someone else will. I know Infinity Gauntlet decks probably aren't that playable, but that saga is a personal favorite of mine, and I'd love to have a fun deck. But yes, I know, competetive play (especially sneak previews) is not the time for fun decks. Thanks again.

Deck swap is usually for competitive events, so unless your TO is a stickler, you probably won't do deck swap. On the other hand, I've opened some stinker packs and then gotten deck swapped some money rares and good deck staples before too. It's not stupid though, it keeps cheaters from loading up their deck with outside good cards and then rolling through the field in order to get the good prizes.

Yeah, at a Sealed PCQ with 30+ people, or a Sealed 10k with who knwos how many people, it would be incredibly easy for people to slip in bomb cards without the TO, Judges, or anyone else seeing. This stops that. I suppose some really cruel people could remove the bombs for crap cards, but that only hinders one guys in a field of dozens.
I wouldn't expect that there will be deck swaps at a Sneak Peek, at mine we don't even register the cards.
