In Duel Masters, all cards released are allowed to be used in deck construction (with the exception of cards on the Hall of Fame). However, various tournaments with different rulesets can also be held.
The Hall of Fame is intended to diversify the decks participating in the tournament metagame.
In events where special regulations have also been held, Winner Awards are given for participation.
Due to irregular regulations for deck construction set up time, there is commonly less participants than normal regulation tournaments. The Winner Promo is used to help offset this.
