Each player starts the battle with 5 cards in hand. From time to time, cards will be drawn simultaneously for both players as they earn a new crystal.

The maximum hand size is 6. If a card is to be drawn whilst the hand is full, that card will be lost.

The first 14 cards drawn will always be the 14 cards from the deck chosen in a random order. After the player draws the first 14 cards, the deck will be cycled and shuffled. For example, if a player has 2 Dwarfs in his 14-sized deck, the first 14 cards will contain exactly 2 Dwarfs. After that, he will draw 2 more Dwarfs in the next 14 cards.

If the player does not have any cards in hand, he/she can draw an extra card by consuming 5 mana.
