    Magic the Gathering: Tournament I
    Approved By BillydaKid

    Hello Magic the Gathering friends. Welcome to the first ever Magic the Gathering Tournament on Smogon.
    In order to play in this tournament, you need to have Cockarice downloaded and working before the tournament starts. You can find details and instructions on their website: http://cockatrice.de/


    You can also ask one of the members in #mtg for helping setting up


    This will be a Modern tournament. The banlist, blocks and other misc item can be found at the official Wizard of the Coasts website http://www.wizards.com/Magic/TCG/Res...rces/sfrmodern

    The tournament rules are directly ripped from the Yu-Gi-Oh tournament (Atticus is a boss and let me, so thanks to him)


    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 2 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.

    11. Signups will be up until next Thursday at 5 PM MST

    I'm in. My decklist is pretty much finalized, still on the fence on whether I want to run one set of cards or another.

    Ok, unfortunately I have to make an executive decision. Since we had a lot more signups than I originally thought I'm going to change some of the rules accordingly.

    1) I'm going to have to close signups to 20. We can have more people signup as subs. Why am I doing this? (Well I'm glad you asked)
    2) With an even number of people (20) we would have 10 people in each pool. That is way to big. Instead, lets split up the pools into 4s. Each pool with have 5 people in it.
    3) Again, like I stated above, the #1 and #2 seeds from each pool with advance. Since we have 4 pools, we will have a Ro8 instead of the Ro4.
    4) The games will still be Bo3s. That rule hasn't changed.

    Now I hope people realize why I'm doing this. I think it will make the tournament run a lot smoother and plus you'll have a much better chance of moving on out of pool play. If you have any concerns, send me a wall or PM.

    And with BlueCaptain as our last one to sign up, I'm going to close this thread and start making the pools and post the Round 1 list soon.
