This competition is MTGO-based. You may play games with real/proxied decks in person but you must have your deck built on MTGO. The banned list is set in such a way to make the construction of MTGO decks very cheap (anything 1 tix or over is banned).  Anyone is welcome to enter.  If it's a success perhaps we will run others with a small entry free and (even) better prizes.

1st Place - Premium Deck: Slivers (Foil Sliver Overlord, lots of foil Slivers)
9+ players
1st Place - Premium Deck: Fire and Lightning (foils of Figure of Destiny, Grim Lavamancer, Lightning Bolts)
2nd Place - Premium Deck: Slivers (as above)
(All prizes in MTGO product).

Decks must contain a minimum of sixty cards. There is no maximum deck size. If a player wishes to use a sideboard, it must contain exactly fifteen cards. With the exception of basic land cards, a player’s combined deck and sideboard may not contain more than four of any individual card, counted by its English card title equivalent.

After buying 20 tix then purchasing the whole deck for the princely sum of 3.80 I've been tearing up the "Just For Fun - Classic" queues so I guess I'm nearly there.  Just need to figure out a sideboard!

Hahaha awesome.

Going back to the drawing board after being smashed by Mills' updated list. My deckbuilding skills are not what they could be!

I've had to get a new MODO account to play in this! User name is ksym - just need to buy the deck now!

Mills want a practise game tonight?

i have been crushed by josh repeatedly so would be eager to play a game or two against someone else this weekend so i can figure out if its just a terrible matchup or if my deck legit sucks

(also i am 0-X against josh in jhoira. the kid runs good)

It has been brought to my attention that Flame Rift (which goes in Legacy burn) is about 3.5 tix so should be banned.  Sorry for missing it.  Is anyone deeply far down a path where only Flame Rift makes sense?  It is a very powerful effect for 2 mana - I've been testing against it on Cockatrice!  I've added it to the banned list.  If this ruins your life speak up now!

Just about to submit my deck now. Playtesting is for wusses.

Also, I couldn't find Manamorphose for less than 1.33 tix, so I didn't buy any. My deck still cost almost 8 tix, though, so I'm winning in terms of expenditure if nothing else!

I can lend you manamorphoses if you want.

Thanks Louis, but I've already sent my deck in sans Manamorphose. I wouldn't have minded buying them, but since they were over 1 ticket everywhere I looked it would have felt a bit wrong to put them in my deck (despite them not being on the 'official' banned list and so technically available - nice researching Baker!).

Alright, three decks in the books.  Looking forward to playing some of the games out probably Monday night.

If I can still sign up it's MischieviousPuck
