Hello pilots for MTG,

I have gone ahead and created the groups. Using random.com I have created 4 separate groups containing 5 participants. Again, to remind you guys, I will copy and paste the rules from the signup thread.

Tournament Rules:
1. All players must carefully familiarize themselves with the latest rulebook and follow the rules carefully.
2. If there is a dispute in terms of rulings, refer to the Magic Wiki or ask a knowledgable person on our IRC channel #mtg.
3. Game discussion will be held on #mtg on irc.synirc.net. This can also be used to schedule matches and find some help for your deck! I can't stress this chat enough, there's almost always someone on and I encourage you to use it for anything MTG related
4. You DO HAVE TO use the same deck throughout the entire tournament and you CANNOT change your deck during the same round.
4a. In order to be fair, send in decks to TheAngry Scientist; he has generously volunteered to collect the decks for the tournament in order to make sure that people aren't changing between rounds. Thanks!
5. The tournament is played in two parts: the first part of the tournament will be a Swiss round. The number of people that signup will be divided into 4 group. Each player will play all the other players in a best of 3. The 2 players with the best records from each group will move onto the round of 4. The #1 seed from group one will then play the #2 from group two and vice versa. The proceeding rounds will be best of 3 as well.
6. No player may reveal the contents of their opponent's deck. Doing so will get you kicked out of the tournament and banned from future tournaments
7. Each player may use a 15 card Side Deck or no sideboard at all; nothing in between
8. Creativity is encouraged, although not mandatory. (Ripping other peoples decks off the internet isn't a bad idea *wink wink*)
9. It is advised that players compete whilst drunk, high, or any other mood to insure the most fun possibly. EVERYONE and their mom wants to duel a drunk Hobo Joe.
10. - All matches will be played on Cockatrice in best 2 out of 3 match format. NO exceptions.

The groups are as follows:

Red Division
Timetwister (0-1)
shiki - DQ'd
Myzozoa (2-1)

Hey so once you get your team submitted and can find someone else in your pool who has submitted too, go on ahead and start playing your pool. There really is no reason to wait and nothing will change if everything is finalized.

That said, I have my team submitted and am ready to start playing in my pool


EDIT: As a heads up im gone Saturday and a majority of Sunday so I'll updated stuff when I get back

For those who are new to Cockatrice, here is a tip: When you first build a deck and use it on the program for the first time, it opens it as it was built. Meaning, that all the lands will be bunched up and all the cards will be with their duplicates, creating for horrendous hands either chockfull of lands or none at all. Therefore, before actually using the deck in an important match, use it in lots of little test matches. The program will then open up the deck as it was used from your previous match, and thus it should be shuffled enough where those type of bad hands dont happen.

I hope I explained it well.
