Food Fight - Commander
What Happens Here?
Open to all players Food Fight is a fun holiday tradition that is a way for players to give to those in need, while participating in a night of fun and cheaty shenanigans.
What is the Format?
The format for this event is Commander. The Commander format is all about picking your hero and building a deck around them. In this casual, multiplayer format, you choose a legendary creature to serve as your commander and build the rest of your deck around their color identity. More information on the Commander format can be found on the Wizards of the Coast website.
What is Food Fight?
Food Fights are special events where the players get to 'buy' cheats and in-game advantages by donating cans of non-perishable food items for Three Square Food Bank!
Cheats available for 'purchase' are as follows :
1 can - Deal 3 damage to any target.
1 can - Return target creature card from your graveyard to your hand.
1 can - Look at the top three cards of target player's library, then put them back in any order. You may have that player shuffle their library.
1 can - Mill the top card from target players library.
3 cans - Search your library for a card and put that card into your hand. Then shuffle your library.
5 cans - Search your library for a legendary creature you own and place it into your command zone. Then shuffle your library. That creature becomes your commander. Any other commanders you have are no longer your commander
(That creature starts with a commander tax of 0.)
10 cans - Proxy in any one legal card.
15 cans - Proxy in any one banned / restricted card.* (excluding power nine and 'ante' cards)
25 cans - Proxy in any one power nine card**
Are There Prizes?
Yes. Each participating player will receive one prize pack. In addition, the last standing player in each Pod will receive a limited edition promotional card. Players in each Pod will also vote to recognize one player with the "Honor of the Peers" award, which will grant that player an additional prize pack.
What do I Bring?
You will need your DCI number, a Commander legal Magic: the Gathering deck, and any cans of food that you would like to bring in order to cheat.. If you do not have a DCI number, our Wizards can assist you in obtaining one. A score pad to keep track of life totals is also necessary. Sleeves, deck boxes and counters are optional.
What is a DCI Number?
DCI numbers are used to track performance, attendance and grant special perks to players participating in events officially sanctioned by Wizards of the Coast. Our Wizards can assist you in obtaining one or help you in locating a lost or forgotten one.
What is Magic: the Gathering?
In the Magic game, you play the role of a planeswalker, a powerful wizard who fights other planeswalkers for glory, knowledge, and conquest. Your deck of cards represents all the weapons in your arsenal. It contains the spells you know and the creatures you can summon to fight for you.
Trading card games like the Magic: The Gathering TCG combine collectible cards with a strategy game. You don't know what you'll get in a Magic booster pack. You just start a collection and trade with other players to get the cards you want.
The best part about a trading card game is that it's always changing. You design and build your own unique decks, and each Magic game you play is different. New Magic expansions are released a few times a year, and each new expansion brings new ways to stupefy and defeat your opponents.
