Post Deckmaster Tournament Dueling Rules
I figured we should put this down to avoid any and all confusion that may arise during a duel. Below is the set of rules for Deck Master duels. If there appears to be anything that seems inaccurate, or that something has been left out, let me know.

EDITED 2/4/09: To qualify for the finals a character must duel at least once on-screen.

1) Choosing a Deck Master
For each character they play that will participate in the tournament, a player must select a Monster card to serve as the character's Deck Master for the entire tournament. The player must create a 'Deck Master ability' and a summoning condition for their chosen Deck Master, and post them along with the character intended to use that Deck Master to the Deck Masters thread to receive approval. The rules for gaining approval on regular created cards apply to Deck Masters as well. It is preferable that each player use only a single post in this thread for all of their characters' Deck Masters to prevent the thread from being difficult to navigate.

2) Tournament Process
a) As previously stated, each character will use one Deck Master for the entire tournament. Players may not use or even create a second Deck Master for any character.
b) To avoid the possibility that a character modifies their deck to take advantage of their Deck Master's ability, once the tournament begins decks may not be modified. This will be a matter of faith between the players.
c) The tournament will consist of pool play between all participating characters - duels will be determined entirely by the characters themselves. As a single-elimination tournament, if a character loses a single duel, he or she will drop out of the competition. The more successful survivors will be chosen to take part in the finals in a manner that will be determined in the future.

3) Dueling Rules
a) As the Deck Master is placed in the Deck Master position after having been removed from the deck, a character may have thirty-nine cards in their deck instead of the normal minimum of forty. This is to avoid complications that would result from characters not being able to modify their decks.
b) Deck Masters may be summoned from the Deck Master position to the field during the turn player's Main Phase. A Deck Master summon is treated as a Special Summon that may not be chained or responded to. This is to avoid the possibility that a Deck Master will be immediately destroyed by cards such as Solemn Judgment and Torrential Tribute. In addition, a player must fulfill the conditions they have established in order to summon their Deck Master.
c) If a Deck Master is destroyed or removed from the field, the Deck Master's player loses the duel immediately except in the following cases: i) The Deck Master is removed from the field by an effect that would return it to the owner's hand or to the owner's deck. In these cases the Deck Master returns to the Deck Master position. A Deck Master may not be summoned twice during the same turn under these circumstances. ii) The Deck Master is tributed or otherwise removed from the field to fulfill the summoning condition of another monster. Instead, the newly summoned monster is treated as the player's Deck Master, and if it is destroyed or otherwise removed from the field except for the cases listed here, its owner loses the duel. The 'new Deck Master' has no Deck Master ability or summon condition, therefore it cannot be summoned.
