This is a DCI Sanctioned event! Swiss style tournament structure. 

What is a Draft?: A Draft tournament is more complicated than Sealed tournament. Each player at the table starts with three unopened booster packs. Instead of just opening your cards and building a deck, you and the other players at the table have to draft the cards for your decks.

At the start of a Draft, each player opens a booster pack and picks the card he or she wants from it. (You can’t see the cards that the other players draft.) Then each player passes the rest of the pack to his or her left. You pick up the pack that was passed to you, select a card, and pass the rest to your left. This process continues until all the cards have been drafted.

Next, each player opens a second pack, but this time, you pass the pack to your right. After all those cards are drafted, you open the third pack and pass to the left again. 

After everyone has completed drafting, each player has forty-five cards and access to Land cards to borrow, in order to build a forty card deck with. Players are given 25 minutes to build their decks. Once the build timer ends, pairings for the first 45 minute round is posted, and the tournament begins!
