Welcome to first Archon Summer Cup using Cockatrice

You can register from now until 10th of September 18:00 CEST to win 3 Double Masters Booster (first place) or 1 Double Masters Booster (second place) in this Two Stage Tournament (Free shipment only to Europe).   

Games will be played on Cockatrice but may also be played offline if you happen to play against someone that is near you. 


Before the tournament:

Sign up on

Make sure you join the Archon Discord server ( (#tournaments). All communication will be done here. Make sure your username on discord matches your username on challonge (or close enough that it's clear).

Private message me your full decklist on discord (@QKey#3602) as soon as possible after you sign up. It must be in the form of a publicly available website (scryfall, tappedout and deckstats are the three most popular). I will not accept XMage .dck or any other files. If you need help uploading your .dck file to one of the mentioned websites, just let us know in the discord. The deadline for completing this is the time at which the tournament goes live (September 11th), not after the tournament ends! Please don't make me hound you on this. All deck lists will be revealed to all players once the tournament is live.

Make sure to check in here on challonge starting 2 days before the tournament goes live. If you don't check in, you will be dropped!

Once the tournament is live:

You will have  2 weeks to complete all matches in your group. This shouldn't be more than 4 matches. Private message your opponents on discord ASAP to set up your game on Cockatrice. If you do not make any reasonable attempt to complete your match, you will be dropped from the tournament.

After the group stage there will be a cut to a single elimination top8 event. You will have around 4-5 days time to complete each of those matches.

How to play on Cockatrice:

Open Cockatrice, if you haven't registered already click on "Cockatrice" in the left upper corner and "Register to Server" (just enter your nickname, password and E-Mail adress)

If you are starting Cockatrice for the first time, click on "Check for card updates" (you don't need to change the settings, just click "Next", "Save", "Finish") and enable them once downloaded

Click on "Connect" or CTRL+L,  server: Rooster Ranges

Create a deck either by uploading via "Deck Editor" > "Load Deck" (format can be .txt or .dec) or creating manually (I highly recommend to upload a list)

Now you can check all cards in the "Deck" tab, commanders should be moved towards your sideboard for easier accessibility -  IMPORTANT: Cockatrice will not be able to read your card if it is named incorrect or contains an addition (e.g. deckstats writes commanders as "Queen Marchesa #Commander")

Once the deck is finished, go for the "Magic" tab to create a game

Your settings should contain a tick on "only buddies can join" (in advance, add your opponent to your friendlist) and no tick on "specators can watch" to not be disturbed by anyone else

Load your .cod deck you have saved before using the "Deck" tab and click "Ready to start"

While playing, use the left icons (steps) to indicate the phase you are currently in

There is no rule-enforcement, any interaction needs to be done manually


CTRL+S - Shuffle your library

CTRL+L - Set your LP

CTRL+D - Draw a card

CTRL+I - Roll a die

CTRL+M - Draw your initial hand, mulligan

CTRL+E - Draw x cards

CTRL+N - Permanently revealing your top card

CTRL+W - View at the top x cards

CTRL+T - Create a token

CTRL+P - Change Power+Thoughness

F2 - Concede

Commander swap: You can always place your Commander(s) in the left zone (the stack) and change them by putting them on top of your library; open your library to search for the other commander and place it

For most other interactions, you need to click thru manually. I highly recommend to play a few casual games in advance to get used to everything!

In-game rules:

As there is no Match clock in Cockatrice, you should keep an eye on the clock. Give your opponent some time to respond. Use the chat for communication, ask if a spell resolves or any action takes place before resolving a spell / an ability or anything else. If possible use the voicechat for faster games!

If your internet disconnects and you are unable to reconnect and rejoin the game with everything working properly, then you must concede that game.

If your opponent clearly has an infinite combo that wins the game, please be civil don't make them play it out completely. Remember, all decklists will be public information at the start of the tournament.

After a match is completed:

Report your match result on and optionally on #tournaments on the discord server.

Please direct any questions to #tournaments  on the discord. Good luck and have fun!
