A league run is five matches against five different decks/opponents.

Your deck stays the same through a run but you can change decks for each run (or not if you want to play again with the same deck).

You can only have one run going at once.

If you don't want to finish a league run message !retire to PDBot on Magic Online or retire via the website and your run will end.

Your deck will be checked for legality when you sign up.

The easiest way to sign up is to export your deck from Magic Online and then upload it or copy it into the sign up page.

To export your deck from Magic Online, right click on the name of the deck on the left of the Collection tab, then click export.

PDBot will report your match result if it is watching your match but if not the winner should report the result of the match.

Make sure you have the right deck name for both you and your opponent before submitting. Report any problems on Discord.

Please do not report "non-games" such as your opponent timing out without ever deciding whether to mulligan or not.

Please note the rules about playing cards with bugs.
