Hearthstone tournament

The nerfs are in and the old gods are awake. Welcome to ShamanStone; your combo can't save you now. Join us for the first Stoner's Gathering of 2016 and witness the eldritch horror of a meta in upheaval. You are not prepared!

How do I get prepared?

1. Construct three standard format deck lists for three different classes to be registered
2. Make a blood sacrifice to an old god of your choice. Ia! Ia! C'thun fhtagn!

What will I need on the day?

1. A device (phone/tablet/laptop) with Hearthstone installed capable of connecting to the internet (wireless preferred; limited wired connections available at venue)
2. A Battle.net account that has completed the Hearthstone tutorial and has access to all cards in your registered deck lists on the North America server.
3. Your $5.00 entry fee, preferably in exact change or your VGS membership card
4. Your war face

How will the tournament be run?

Losing one game moves you to the secondary "losers" bracket
Losing a second game eliminates you from the tournament
