Hi everyone. Before I release Rising Waters (set two of MTI block), and before the new plugin update happens, I'd like to have a Constructed tournament.

Pro Tour Lee is a jacqui Standard tournament, so the two sets available to you are Time Hop and Mercadian Tides.

In the spirit of the Magic invitational, the winner will get to work with me to design a card for "Andres" (the set after Rising Waters).

3. Korakhos (2-0) vs. 4. WindyDelcarlo (1-0)
6. HerzinththeDark (1-0) vs. 8. justnobody (2-0)
10. jacqui-pup (1-0) vs. 1. Neottolemo (1-1)
2. fluffyDeathbringer (0-1) vs. 7. Nazsmith (1-1)
9. Marzen64 (0-1) vs. 5. Guitarweeps (1-1)

No maximum deck size, nope.

And Benthic Knowledge is so cool it almost makes blue worth it.

I'll give it a shot although I'll have to look over the sets a bit to build a deck. To save me some time any particular deck archetypes you'd like to see in action?

Well, it needs to finish up before Preasti (and by extension, the plugin update).

GW, I think that Rebels are both 1. powerful and 2. very easy to play and build. There are some very good token strategies too I think.

Basically the same as Athens did, if you were around for that-- round robin, best two out of three. Winner will go 3-0; runners up go 2-1, etc.

Well, that's eight. Can I ask y'all to PM me your decklists? Remember, 60+ cards with a 15 card sideboard, using only cards from the Mercadian Tides and Time Hop expansions.

I'd say... Friday, maybe? Friday sounds like a good time to start.

I'd be willing to have a game with you and see what you could use in the sideboard. :0)

Sure, we can do ten people if you've got a decklist. I'd be willing to add myself (playing something janky) for sake of having an even number.

So part of the reason I'm holding this tourney is to see what cards are too good and what decks need a counter.

Is Goblin Prohibition too oppressive?
