Casual tournament for laffs
« on: June 02, 2015, 08:11:24 AM »
So this was very briefly discussed in the chat so I thought I'd post it here. Would anyone be interested in a small tournament of Magic: The Gathering? This is simply a casual thing, there's no prize (though I may give the winner a trophy in their FW profile page) and it's just for fun.

To keep things fair, the format would be Sealed, best of 3 using three Magic 2015 Core boosters, one booster from Khans of Tarkir, one from Fate Reforged, and one from Dragons of Tarkir. If you're unfamiliar with Sealed, you can read more on the Wizards page regarding this format, or talk to me about it and I can help you, but the gist of it is this. You are given six booster packs with which to make a deck of 40 cards. This format is balanced in that it avoids any decks that people have spent years developing, wherein they've crafted very specific and nasty combos that, while creative to some extent, sap all the fun out of casual play.

Right now the people interested are myself, Stakie, Zurr and Natannis. Other people who are known to play who I haven't asked yet are Luc, Rain and Cheeky.

If you're interested, let me know here and we can try to set up some kind of schedule and bracket. We'll be playing using the system called OCTGN. Instructions on how to set up OCTGN for play can be found here.
