Let's do this online on DT.

We can change the number of cards from four if we think the format is too well explored already?  Or maybe that doesn't matter as everything dominant gets banned quickly anyway?

Me too - though it is probably awful!

OK I have my deck.  Submit yours to bakert@gmail.com and I'll put them all up when they're in.

Other folks can join in in subsequent rounds if they want - no need to restrict it to this set.

Alright, I have four decks already!  Keep 'em coming!

Just submitted mine. Seems impossible to cover every situation - there are probably loads of decks to which I just immediately lose.

I have five decks now + Ross' Talon Trooper entry.  I'll give Charlie the rest of today then we'll work out the results.

Here are the decks for Round 1.  After a quick look I think Charlie, Simon and Kieran have done the best but let's work it out.

[Tom]
Cavern of Souls
Force of Will
Cursecatcher
Merfolk of the Pearl Trident

[Levi]
Saprazzan Skerry
Fog Bank
Invisible Stalker
Force of Will

[Kieran]
Sand Silos
Force of Will
Misthollow Griffin
Pact of Negation

[Simon]
Chancellor of the Annex
Calciform Pools
Mishras Factory
Dismember

[Louis]
Slippery Bogle
Cavern of Souls
Leyline of Sanctity
Chancellor of the Annex

[Charlie]
Leyline of Sancity
Chancellor of the Forge
Chancellor of the Annex
Pendelhaven

[Ross]

Well I think my deck beats everyone but Kieran's on the play and the draw, and maybe even Kieran too, but I can't be bothered to work it out now.

Okay after some quick math I think I just beat Kieran on play and draw too.

Man, I knew I shoulda gone with chronomaton :(

EDIT: Yup, my deck loses all 5 games, Chronomaton would've won me 3

Tom v Levi (DD)

- Cavern of Souls, Cursecatcher

- Saprazzan Skerry (tapped)

- Attack for 1.  If I make Merfolk of the Pearl Trident he can resolve Fog Bank and Invisible Stalker and we reach an impasse.  If I hold it back for Force he can make Fog Bank or Invisible Stalker with Force backup and we reach an impasse.

Draw.

- Saprazzan Skerry (tapped).

- Cavern of Souls, Cursecatcher.

- If he attempts Fog Bank I force, he forces back.  If he makes Invisible Stalker I make Merfolk of the Pearl Trident and he is free to resolve Fog Bank.  Another impasse.

Draw.

Tom v Kieran (LL)

- Cavern of Souls, Cursecatcher.

- Sand Silos tapped

- Attack for 1.  Merfolk of the Pearl Trident.  I can't hold back Merfolk for Force of Will because Kieran just forces in Response exiling either Griffin or Pact.

- Do not untap Sand Silos (1)

- Attack for 2 (3)

- Do not untap Sand Silos (2)

- Attack for 2 (5)

- Do not untap Sand Silos (4)

- Attack for 2 (7)

- Make Misthollow Griffin.

- Pass

- Attack (3)

(21) Kieran kills Tom on 1 life.

Kieran wins

On the play Kieran wins on 3 life.

I think if I had made my Merfolk Spy and Tidal Warrior I actually could have won the on the play version of this one by getting in for one extra damage the turn after Kieran made the Griffin (or all the damage if he doesn't race).  Damnit.

Tom v Simon (LL)

Mishra's Factory can block any one of my guys.  Dismember can kill either of my guys.  So Simon starts the race at 16 life but he has a 2 power man versus a 1 power man and he can just wait and hardcast the Chancellor if he wants.

Tom v Louis (WW)

2 uncounterable 1/1s happily race 1 uncounterable 1/1.
