Constructed Deck Information

A. General
Constructed Decks for Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG tournaments must meet specific guidelines for use in the event. Duelists must
ensure that their Decks meet these requirements before entering an event. A Duelists Deck includes their Main Deck, and may include a Side Deck and/or an Extra Deck.
A Duelist may not have more than three copies of any card included in their Main Deck, Side Deck, and Extra Deck

B. Main Deck
Constructed Main Decks for Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG events must have a minimum of 40 cards, and a maximum of 60 cards. Only
the cards in the Main Deck count towards this total; cards in the Side or Extra Decks do not count towards this total.

C. Side Deck
In addition to their Main Deck, Duelists in a Constructed Tournament may use a Side Deck consisting of 0 to 15 cards.
Both Duelists in a match must confirm the exact number of cards in each others Side Deck before each match begins.
Side Deck cards may be exchanged for cards in the Main Deck or the Extra Deck between Duels in a match, on a 1-for-1
basis. For example, a Duelist may remove five cards from their Main Deck and two cards from their Extra Deck before
the start of the next Duel in a match, and replace them with the exact same number of cards from the Side Deck.
The Side Deck should be counted out in full view of the opponent, to show that the Side Deck remains the same size as was confirmed before the match began.

Cards cannot be exchanged between the Main and Extra Deck, even if you are keeping those cards in your Side Deck.

After each round of a tournament, Duelists must remove all Side Deck cards and restore their Main and Extra Decks to
their original state before their next match begins.

Duelists may not add cards to their Main Deck from their Side Deck before the first Duel in a match. If the first Duel in a match is decided by a Duel Loss penalty before the Duel has begun, Duelists may not use their Side Decks before the second Duel of the match.

D. Extra Deck
Duelists may have an Extra Deck of up to 15 Fusion or Synchro Monsters. Fusion and Synchro Monsters are never kept in the Main Deck.

Yu-Gi-Oh! cards that are not registered on a Duelists Deck List as part of their Main Deck, Side Deck, or Extra Deck may not be kept with a Duelists Deck (in the deck box, etc.) If a Duelist chooses to use cards as Tokens, they may only use cards that are marked as Tokens.
