Battle for Zendikar's New Sealed Pool Registration

Reddit

Director of Organized Play Helene Bergeot announced a new Sealed Pool registration process today that allows players to open Zendikar Expeditions and keep that pool to play the event with.

From the announcement:

  • Each player is distributed six booster packs. The boosters will be marked in a way that distinguishes they came from the tournament organizer for that event.
  • Players on one side of each table open their boosters (Player A). The player directly across (Player B) observes this. Both players will observe and verify the contents of those boosters. After this process, the opened cards are stacked face down in a single pile and placed near Player B.
  • Player B will now open their boosters. Player A observes. Both players will observe and verify the contents. After this process, the opened cards are stacked face down in a single pile and placed near Player A.
  • Player A then registers the contents of Player B's pool, and vice versa.
  • After registration, each player returns the registered card pool to the player who originally opened the pool.

    Players build and record decks as normal.

The initial reactions are generally positive, though with obvious reservations.

The new process may not be final as Wizards will be "monitoring feedback from this weekend" but with two Limited Grand Prix happening it's a welcome change for everyone hitting the Expedition lottery. Good fix, or is this asking for more trouble than it's worth?
