will be given the same exact card stock from which to construct a deck.
This stock usually has the same number of cards from each of the 5
colors. Typically tournament organizers will include a few new cards or
have a theme when making the card stock. Some examples have been: only
1cc cards, changing the casting cost of spells, or a whole set. I have
included below some examples of card stocks that you can use. (note:

Each player will construct a 40-card minimum deck. Each player should be given 6 land of each basic land and should be allowed to exchange 5 lands.
Your remaining cards are considered your sideboard. You may remove any card from your deck and add any number of cards from your sideboard, as long as your deck still meet the deck construction guide lines. At the end of your match you must return your deck to its original form. Example: After game one you decide to take 2 cards out of your deck and add 3 cards from your sideboard. At the end of the match you must return the two cards back into your deck and remove the 3 you added before you play your next opponent.
“Paris” Mulligan is used for this variant.
Before each game begins, a player may, for
any reason, reshuffle and redraw his hand, drawing one less card. This
may be repeated as often as the player wishes, until he has no cards
left in his hand. After the participant, who plays first, mulligans as
often as he likes, the decision of whether to mulligan passes to the
other player. Once a player passes the opportunity to mulligan, that
player may not change his mind.
