As you may (or more likely may not) know, MTG has just released its newest expansion set, and I want to run a tournament for it to try and get a few people into MTG that haven't tried it before. For those of you who don't know, MTG:A is a F2P, online version of Magic the Gathering (with a better F2P economy than Hearthstone by a country mile). I want to try and get people into Magic, so if you want to try and get into it, and the tutorial/online resources aren't cutting it for you, let me know and I can help teach you the game.
Since most people probably haven't played, or dont have many cards from the new set yet, the tournament wont be starting until Feb 10th, and because I don't want to make people book a whole day off just for this, it'll be running over a week, with people playing their matches when they have time. All matches will be best-of-three, in deck elimination style. This means everybody must submit 2 decks. Once you win with a deck in a Bo3, it's done, and the winner is whoever wins with both decks first. Your opponent will know which decks you have (but not what cards are in them), but not which one you choose to play in a given match (unless of course you've already won a game, and only have one deck to choose from). After a Bo3 is played, the winner will contact me, and I will update the tournament brackets and inform them who their next opponent is.
The part you've all been waiting for! I will be putting up $30CAD in prizes, to be given out as either steam wallet codes, or donations to the VCO fund. First place will take $15, second will take $10, and third $5.
To make sure I have time to make the brackets before Fed 10th, I will be cutting off registration on Feb 8th, at which point I will need everybody to send me their two deck choices (so there's no deck-switching shenanigans happening). To register to join, either contact me, or drop a post here, I'll make sure you get added to the list.
This is an all skill level event! Even if you think you'll lose, come play anyways, you might get lucky!
If there isn't enough people (<6) then I may have to change the prize structure (cause 3rd would be a bit easy to get), and if that happens I'll comment on this post on Feb 9th to let everyone know.
Also on the 9th I'll post the list of participants, and their chosen decks, as well as the starting match-ups.
