In booster drafts are you allow to make a reserve?

Yes sir. This is a relatively new rule.
Absentmindedly glancing at this unimpressive signature fills you with determination.

You can also have a Reserve in Sealed deck now as well.

Have you checked the REG?
Have you looked it up in ORCID?

The only requirement is that there are at least 2 packs that are RoJ or more recent that are used.

This does bring up an interesting question.  Does this requirement require everyone to TAKE two packs with reserve access (RoJ, FoM & PoC), or them just being OFFERED?  So with Sealed being a game mode where you only get two box packs now, if someone CAN pick the new 3 sets, but chooses to take say 1 CoW and one of them, or 2 CoW, does that keep everyone from using a reserve?

Isn't the Reserve still optional to use? Even if I did have packs allowing access I could choose not to use it. As long as all players are allowed the same pack choice opportunity, it still remains their choice.

Technically the Reserve is not optional. What is optional is how many cards you put in it to start (anywhere between 0 & 10). You always have a Reserve, even if there are no starting cards in it (since cards could end up in it during the course of the game).

All these technicalities...   ::)  I am glad someone keeps track of them. All funnin' aside, you can choose to place cards in the Reserve or not, as long as all players are offered the same choice of packs, if more than one are offered in Sealed, I don't see an issue.

Godspeed,

When did this change occur? This line is in the UPDATED host guide under closed deck and booster draft:

- Closed deck categories do not use the Reserve
