Welcome to the first MSEM League. This is a Constructed Format following all the traditional MSEM rules, including the banlist. I'm your host Timespiraled and I'll be overseeing this event from my nifty little lounge over in Jinshitan, China for the next month and a half.


HOW DO I PLAY IN THE LEAGUE?
Simple, simply post below with something akin to "I want to play in the League" and I will add you to the Season's contestants.

Joining a League starts your course and you can start looking for opponents. Your course through the League allows you to play a fixed number of matches, depending on the League’s structure. When you’re ready to play you'll need to find yourself some opponents and have access to LackeyCCG of course. Furthermore, you will need to submit your decklist to me. I will not be taking part in the League and will therefore remain as an impartial host.

Decklists should be clear and legible and contain no banned cards.

To find an opponent, you are welcome to post in this thread and find people willing to play. Your opponents must be League participants of course.

Once you’re done with your match, you can immediately play another match if you want.

You can’t change your constructed deck during your course, though obviously between games of a match you can use your sideboard normally. However, you can join multiple times with different decks but more on that later.

As soon as you finish the last match, your course through the League will complete.

For information on the MSEM format, please look here: http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/node/10655


LEAGUE DETAILS
League Start: Wednesday March 15th 2017
League Ends: Friday March 31st 2017

New weeks begin on the Monday of that week.


DECK REGISTRATION
Please PM me your Decklist with Sideboard included. You can use LackeyCCG's text exporter for this purpose.

MATCH STRUCTURE
Every time you complete a match, you must report it below as follows:

Your Name vs Opponent's Name
Win/Loss

TOTAL NUMBER OF MATCHES AND MULTIPLE REGISTRATION
You are allowed a total of five matches a week per deck. Once you complete all five games, you are allowed to re-register a new decklist and play more matches using this new deck. You cannot play against yourself. You cannot play the same opponent more than two times each week (for sake of fairness) per deck. So if you have two decks registered, you can play the same opponent twice for each of your decks.

Matches are played as Best-of-3.

Also, if you have completed all your games, you may still play with other members to help them complete theirs, but your score does not contribute to your win/loss ratio. However, it does matter for tiebreakers.
CLOSING THE SEASON
At the end of Season 1, we will total up your Wins/Losses/Draws and announce the Season rankings. This will award "Season Points" and we can therefore have a Champion as we progress through (hopefully) multiple seasons. This first season is short since it is a test run.

Update #2
- Another update, there might be a chance that WOC becomes uneligible for use in the League. I will keep you all posted.

What on earth is WOC?

WoC was the source of stuff like the 1cmc hybrid cycle (Eulogy Siren, Wild Cantor, etc) and more importantly, the cycle of 'free' flashback cards, such as the Hurkyll's Recall variant, and the mill 3 to bounce a nonland permanent card.

Indeed.

The OP makes it unclear; are we playing of-three matches or are we just playing single games and reporting those?

I think "matches" heavily implies the standard best of three.

Also:

Sideboards would be a weird thing to have in single games.

I was just confused because it's followed by "once you complete all five games."

Five games = 5x Best of Three matches. No use for a sideboard otherwise.

EDIT: While we did play the match, and it was sylphs 5th round, it was my 6th. I spaced and forget that I had technically played all my games already, so no points for me.

Second deck time
match#6
Let there be Goblins Versus ThisisSakon
2-0

The second game was a mull to 3 and concede so I'm not sure if it should count.
We decided that second game won't count and so we are going to play another.
Ended up 2-0 still.
I may end up suggesting a nerf to a certain card in the deck depending on what the other matches go out.

If it's the same nerf I mentioned then I agree.
