Sealed Deck is a limited format which is used in many events.[1] [2] [3]

This format is used on many occasions, from casual-level prereleases and Friday Night Magic events to major tournaments like Grand Prixes and Pro Tour Qualifiers.

Procedure

Everyone is given the same amount of product. Before the release of Conflux, players would open a tournament pack and two sealed booster packs. With the release of Conflux, however, tournament packs were discontinued. Depending on which sets have been released, decks are either built from 6 booster packs of the first set in the block, or with 3 boosters each of the first and second sets in the block, or with 2 boosters each of all three sets. From that pool of cards, and adding in as many basic land as desired, each player must build a deck of at least 40 cards. Any opened cards not put in the main deck count as part of the sideboard. In limited deck, the skill is making the best out of what you're given. [4]

The limited format increases the role of chance in how good a deck turns out. There is a lot of strategy used while drafting, while the contents of your deck in a limited event are dependent entirely on what you open in your six booster packs.
