    Draft deck construction size clarification. Please

    So in draft we draft 60 cards. To make a 40 card + Character card deck.
    Here is a copy and paste fro the select format document currently on the website. I will highlight the parts which is causing an issue and I would like clarification.

    Draft Rules:
    40 card deck + character, the remaining cards become the Sideboard.
     Instead of the normal resource restriction rules, players may play cards into their card pool
    in any order as long as they share 1 symbol with their starting character (resource chaining
    is not required).
     There is no restriction on maximum copies of a card with the same name.
     When taking a mulligan, the player going first may put their entire hand on the bottom of
    their deck and draw a new hand, then shuffle the deck. The player going second may choose
    any number of cards in their hand, place them on the bottom of their deck, draw that many
    cards, then shuffle their deck.
     When cycling the deck, only remove 5 cards from the game instead of 10.
    Drafting:
     Each player receives 6 booster packs. Each player opens 1 pack, selects one card to keep
    from it, sets it face down in front of them and passes the remaining cards to the player to
    their left. Players will thus receive a pile of nine cards from the player on their right. They
    again pick one card, pass the remainder to the left, and so on until there are no more cards
    left from the pack.
     Repeat this process for all six packs, alternating which direction cards are passed in per pack
    opened (left, then right, then left, etc). Players may check the cards they have drafted at any
    time as long as it is done in a timely manner.
     At the end of this process, each player will have 60 cards. They may then borrow exactly one
    full-art Select Format Only character card from the store/host if they choose. These cards
    must be returned after the event, so that they can be used for future Select Format events.
    Players then use the cards they drafted, along with their borrowed character to build a deck
    with a minimum of 40 cards
    , excluding their starting character.

    Now the question is this. is it both min and max 40 plus character or is it just min 40? also if it is both min and max when did that happen?
    If it is min 40 + character please can you adjust the sheet so that confusion is not further propagated.

    Thank you

    Its just the minimum. You can use every card you drafted if you managed to draft cards that all matched at least one symbol with your character you chose.

    Thank you for your response. That was always the way i thought it was supposed to be. I would like confirmation from one of the Jasco Games rules team and making appropriate adjustments to documents so that misunderstandings can be avoided. It need to be in offical paper work as a messenger / text / forum ruling is not gospel. Official documentation is!!!

    ThorKnighgt83. I do not mean to offend and i than k you for your confirmation on my thoughts but i need official clarification. I do not know who you are if you are Jasco staff then I apologise and accept
