Standard legal decks must meet the following criteria
- Must be exactly 30 cards (before Solbind cards are added)
- May contain no more than 3 copies of any one card
- May contain cards from no more than 2 factions
Standard decks are used in Ranked, Unranked and Constructed tournament play. Alternate constructed formats are often used for Weekend Warrior events.

Players can enter ranked play with Standard legal decks. New players start out in the lowest division, Bronze, and move up the ladder by winning matches. Each division is further divided into five ranks and within each rank are five forge points. Winning a match will earn a player one forge point while losing a match will cost a player a forge point. Players in the Gold, Silver and Bronze divisions can earn bonus forge points by going on win streaks. Wins that are part of a streak that is four games or longer will grant an extra forge point. To move up to the next rank, a player must earn a forge point after they have collected all of the forge points for the current rank. A player may move down in ranking by losing forge points but can never move down to a lower division once the higher division has been achieved.
There are some exceptions for the Bronze division that help new players climb their way up the ladder. First, there are only three forge points per rank rather than five. Second, players in the Bronze division don't lose forge points when they lose games. Therefore, players in the bronze division don't need to win more games than they lose in order to progress.
The Titanium division is the highest acheavable division. Players are not divided into ranks but are ranked against each other directly.
Ranked play is divided up into seasons. At the end of a season, players will receive prizes based on their current rank (not their highest achieved rank). When the new season starts, players previously in the Bronze and Silver divisions will begin at Bronze rank 1 and players in the Gold or higher divisions will begin at Silver rank 1.

Heads UpEditHeads Up constructed is a one game match between two players. The entry fee is one event ticket and the winner gets their ticket back with an additional 7,500
Unranked is identical to ranked play except that wins and losses don't count towards your ladder position. Unranked wins do count towards Daily Quest accomplishments. Matchmaking is not used in unranked play so players may be paired with people of very different skill, experience, and deck level. Decks in unranked play must still follow the rule for standard deck construction.
Players can also play against an AI opponent. In this mode, the player will choose a deck for the AI to play as well as their own deck. Games played in single player mode do not count towards Daily Quest accomplishments.
Players may also use decks that are not standard legal in single player mode. They can contain any number of cards and any number of copies of a single card. You do not need to own the cards in your deck to play it in single player mode. This is especially useful for testing unpredictable card interactions.
