Alpha 60 7-Point Singleton

Deck Construction Rules

  • Cards per deck: 60, you cannot play more than one copy of the same card except for basic lands. No sideboards are used. There is a list of cards that cost points to include in your deck. You may “spend” up to 7 points to add cards from that list to your deck.
  • Allowed sets: Alpha.
  • Reprint rules: No reprints are allowed.


Contemporary rules and errata are followed, with a few exceptions:

  • Mana burn is in effect.
  • Fake Ante. Prior to each game, each player antes one card. Any ante cards from game losses are exiled for the rest of the match. When you use Jeweled Bird, only your ante from the current game goes to your graveyard.
  • When flipping Chaos Orb, you must choose a permanent before you flip and only that card can be destroyed.
  • Orcish Artillery and Orcish Oriflamme cost 1R.

Banned and Restricted Cards

No cards are banned in Alpha 60 7-Point Singleton, not even ante ones. Every card, except for basic lands, is restricted.
