Grand finals: New lobby Finals are a bo5 series, with a slight twist. When a player losses a game, and only once per player, that player may call for a redraft. If he chooses to do so, both players will draft new decks, otherwise they continue to play with the same decks. Score doesn't reset upon redraft obviously, only the decks change.
