Following the success of our first MTGO BYOS tournament I'm starting another.
Everyone is welcome to play regardless of whether you played in the first one or not.
To sign up just post in this thread. Deck lists should be submitted to by Monday 10th December.

This competition is MTGO-based. 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.


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. All cards named Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, and Forest are basic.

The following card sets are permitted in this tournament:
Champions of Kamigawa
Planar Chaos
Rise of the Eldrazi
Scars of Mirrodin
Tenth Edition
Urza's Destiny

The following cards are banned in this tournament:

An army of Calciderms backed by Contagion Clasps!

in in in. going peruse for combo possibilities now...

shouldn't Sensei's Divining Top be off the list?

Seems to have crept up over 1 dollar since I wrote the list.  DTBYOS is obviously affecting modo prices now.  Since it is an obnoxious card I'll ban it :)

yeah its only like 1.05 or something but it does make games take twice as long so i'm in favour of axing it

and i'm saying that as someone who loves building durdly do-nothing decks!

Sigh, bought 4 at .75 ea from a bot :/

you're lucky Louis, its sensei's diving top which is on the banned list right now!

Hmm ... well if Louis bought them in good faith and they were under 1 tix when the list was written I think it has to be legal.  Back on the legal list it goes!  Shortest banning in Magic history.

Note: I will be playing with time limits against players with Top in their deck.


I'm in

Bleurgh, I vote in favour of banning top.

It is annoying as hell, lets just hope Louis' deck is poor, I know mine is so far!

My deck looks all set to be hilariously bad. It appears to be one combo and about 30 draw spells. Bring it on!

In. How comes iwamori of the open fist isn't in the visual spoiler?
