Old Frame 10 Points Singleton

Deck Construction Rules

  • Cards per deck: At least 100. No sideboards are used. Decks cannot include more than a copy of any particular card, except for basic lands. When building a deck, up to 10 points may be used. Points are used to add cards from the Points List in your deck.
  • Allowed sets: Every Old Frame set (Alpha, Beta, Arabian Nights, Antiquities, Legends, The Dark, Fallen Empires, Harper Prism Book Promos, Ice Age, Homelands, Alliances, Mirage, Visions, Weatherlight, Portal, Tempest, Stronghold, Exodus, Portal Second Age, Unglued, Urza’s Saga, Urza’s Legacy, Urza’s Destiny, Portal Three Kingdoms, Starter 1999, Mercadian Masques, Nemesis, Prophecy, Invasion, Planeshift, Apocalypse, Odyssey, Torment, Judgment, Onslaught, Legions, and Scourge).
  • Reprint rules: All standard-sized reprints are allowed, including non-Tournament legal ones: Collectors’ Edition, International Collectors’ Edition, gold-bordered World Championship and Pro Tour cards, and Magic 30th Anniversary cards.


Contemporary rules and errata are followed, except for the following ones:

  • Ante. Games are played for “modified” ante. Ante works in the following way so that it only affects the current match: If a card is lost to ante, that player may not use the lost card for the remainder of the match, it stays exiled and can’t be recovered (except with Darkpact or Jeweled Bird and only on the same game the card is part of the ante). If a card is won in ante, the winning player creates a proxy of the won card (or uses an original copy from outside the deck) and has the option to add it to their deck for the remainder of the match, after removing from the deck the same number of cards. After the match is finished, cards lost in ante are added back to their owners’ deck, and proxies of cards won in ante must be removed from decks.
  • Blacker Lotus:
    • Updated text: {T}, Sacrifice Blacker Lotus: Add four mana of any one color. Exile Blacker Lotus. You cannot recover it until the end of the current match.
    • Original text: {T}: Tear Blacker Lotus into pieces. Add four mana of any one color. Remove the pieces from the game.
    • Changes explanation: Reworded so that the experience of destroying the card is limited to the current match.
  • Ring of Ma’rûf:
    • Updated text: {5}, {T}, Exile Ring of Ma’rûf: Name an Old Frame 10 Points Singleton legal card. The next time you would draw a card this turn, instead put into your hand the named card. You may either put an original copy of the named card or create a proxy of it.
    • Original text: {5}, {T}, Exile Ring of Ma’rûf: The next time you would draw a card this turn, instead put a card you own from outside the game into your hand.
    • Changes explanation: By being able to choose any card we are trying to replicate the original experience of playing this card.
