Deck lists:

Rent a bicycle for free!

With the code Ylämaa2 you are able to use the Turku city bicycles (Fölläri) for free during the event, between September 20th and 25th! The only limitation is a maximum of 30 minutes per trip: feel free to cycle as much as you want, the meter doesn’t start ticking until you have gone on for over half an hour on that particular ride!

Instructions on how to use the bicycles here:

If you arrive to the tournament locations by bicycle, please park them so that they don’t block any walkways! The recommended parking spot north of the building (on Vanha Hämeentie side) has been added to the event map. There you can find a small ledge, just next to the walkway, perfect for parking bicycles.

Other info

There will be a feature match table where matches will be recorded and published afterwards on the YouTube channel. It is your right to decline being set in the feature match table, no questions asked. Please approach the event staff at the venue if you have any questions or concerns. Please note that such accommodation might not be possible during top 8 matches.

We hope to gather as many decklists as possible from the event to publish via the Moxfield account. Please be ready to submit your event decklist either on paper or electronically. This is not a requirement but a sincere wish. 🙂
