    I come from a poker playing background, so the concept of a timed card game is a little foreign to me. I get the point that the rounds cant go unlimited in tournaments. Has the idea of giving each player a certain amount of time for the series- and if it runs out- then you lose?

    The short answer is that it is too pricy/complicated for the smaller venues.

    Reminds me of timed missions in video games; not all that fun really.

    Matches are timed in tournaments and you do have a limited time to do things such as search your deck and what not it's up to each player to keeping the pace of the game so that a Victor emerges. A clock could be used(currently illegal)but imagine how annoying it would be to tap it every time your opponent plays a card just to reset the timer
