Magic: the Gathering in the UK

Hello Everyone,

Bazaar Games is going to be hosting a weekly Monday Night (6:30 Doors Open.) Modern Event at the Watford Social Club. Now, as some of you may know, this clashes with our Commander League. The Commander League will be moving to Thursday Nights. (6:30 Doors Open.)

Prize Structure:


Venue Address:

Watford Social Club  
70-72 Queens Road
WD17 2LA

Following on from the previous newsletter released earlier this week, Bazaar Games is continuing to bring a tournament scene to the Watford area with weekly Modern.


This tournament allows unlimited proxies currently, eventually this number will reduce lower and lower and there will be some events in the future with higher prize pools for decks with 0 proxies.

For those who are confused to what a proxy is, it is usually a piece of paper with the card printed on it, used to represent the card you wish to use instead of using the real card.

Proxies need to be printed out with all the rules text, mana cost, power/toughness, etc written clearly on the card.

For those who may be unfamiliar to Modern, a quick explanation is as follows:

Modern is a constructed format which players must bring a deck with at least 60 cards and may bring a sideboard with either 0 or 15 cards in it.

The Modern format consists of all Magic sets printed since the introduction of the modern card frame, starting with Eighth Edition. This includes Eighth Edition, Ninth Edition, Tenth Edition, Magic 2010,Magic 2011, Magic 2012, the Coldsnap expansion set, and the following blocks: Mirrodin, Kamigawa,RavnicaTime SpiralLorwynShadowmoorShards of AlaraZendikar, and Scars of Mirrodin.

Twenty-one cards are included on the banned list for Modern:

Modern isn't the only thing Bazaar Games is looking to be running in the near future. Soon players can enjoy Constructed Tournaments, Sealed Events, Multi-player Events as well as future Release and Pre-Release Events.
Come down to the Watford Social Club at 6:30pm every Monday for Magic: the Gathering Modern!

Is it M12 draft?

Yeah, it is. It will be the current draft format at the time.
Cool - I'll probably pop down next Monday and check it out since it's not far from me.
Awesome to see more drafts cropping up, unfortunately it's too far from me.  Also 3-1-1-1 seems a bit stingey for an £11 draft.  For an extra £2each at the games club it's 5-3-2-2 which is double the prize support...
The issue with 5-3-2-2 for us is, if we don't get regularly a pod of eight and get low numbers or strange numbers (Like 11), it can sometimes turn out that we make a large loss, with no guaranteed players, we can't afford to do that at the moment. The Prize Support is how it is until we've got a regular group running every week, then, it will likely increase.
How long have you lot been running tournaments?
In the Watford Area, about three weeks, in general, both myself and Dan Harborne have been running tournaments for Chesham for a while, myself only a few months in Chesham, Dan for a couple of years. Though he is not the T.O., we have his experience to hand as well as my own.
If you can start doing standard tournament for the lead up to nats that would be great. People don't play enough standard in England.
Both myself and Dan are qualified, and it is defiantly on the agenda.
Same here - and TBH I haven't done a whole lot of testing.
Likewise, i went 0-3 at Reading PTQ, signs of no testing. :P
What were you running?
