Mission Statement

The purpose of this tournament is the creation of competitive Magic Duels content. Participants are strongly encouraged to record their gameplay and upload it to YouTube or stream their matches via Twitch.

Message to Content Creators

YouTube coverage of as many tournament games as possible is strongly preferred, so if you have that ability then please make use of it. For everyone else, it is very easy to stream your gameplay via Twitch directly from the Xbox One. For those of you that have Twitch accounts and choose to stream your games, please ensure that you have enabled the "Archive Broadcasts" option in your channel settings. This will allow people to watch the games after they have been played.

Message to Viewers

Results of the rounds will be hidden behind spoiler tags in their respective posts for those who want to watch the games without knowing the results. Links to all available gameplay footage will be archived in a single post, linked below. If you don't want spoilers, don't read the thread because we will be discussing the results. Feel free to post in this thread at anytime, even if you aren't a participant. Break down the matchups and watch the games!

Tournament Rules

1) Commitment - This is the first rule because it is the most important of all. Tournament rounds will last a maximum of 4-5 days and it is your responsibility to complete your matches in a timely manner. Anyone who misses a deadline will be immediately dropped from the tournament and excluded from any future tournaments. If you can't fully commit to this tournament then simply don't join it.

2) Tournament Format - This tournament will use a five-round Swiss-Style pairing system with a cut to the Top 8 players. Those players will then play single elimination rounds until a winner has been decided. All matches are a best of three with the exception of the final round, which is a best of five.

3) Intentional Drawing - In Paper Magic tournaments, it is common for players to intentionally draw matches in order to secure a place in the Top 8 single elimination round. Since the purpose of this tournament is content creation, intentional drawing will not be allowed. You have to play your matches.

4) Decklists - Each player will register a deck of 60 cards and will play that deck exclusively throughout the tournament. All decks will be submitted in secret to DJ0045 and then published once all submissions have been received. Once you have settled on a decklist, send it in a PM to DJ. He will let me know once he has received all sixteen submissions and I will post them at that time. Since the decklists will be transmitted from you to DJ to me and then posted to this thread, there is potential for errors to occur. It is your responsibility as a participant to ensure the posted decklist matches the decklist you intend to play before the tournament commences.

5) Illegal Cards - The first penalty for playing an illegal card is a game loss. The second penalty is a match loss. The third penalty is tournament expulsion. I suggest creating a special copy of your tournament deck and giving it a unique name so that you never modify it by mistake.

6) Disconnects - I'm not going with shades of grey on this issue because it's a sticky one. If you DC, you get a game loss. Black and White is easier to manage and avoids petty arguments. If you lose a game because of a thunderstorm, that's just bad luck. Accept it and move on.

7) Bugged Cards - If a bugged card can be used in a way that lets it do things it should not be able to do, then making that play will result in an immediate game loss (e.g. Disciple of the Ring pre-patch). If a card is bugged and is therefore less useful somehow then you have the option to simply not play that card (e.g. Greenwarden of Murasa).

I'm like to start on Friday, January 8th, but I'm not setting an actual start date until we get 16 confirmed players. Plan for the 8th.

We have 16 players lined up, but if a spot opens up you're next in line. Those 16 aren't all confirmed yet.

Wait, so where is my name? I wanted to join. I should get my Xbox back from Microsoft before this tournament starts. If it starts before expected, I'l just order it online with 1 day shipping.

You backed out, I assumed that was official. Did I miss a post where you retracted that?

I think it was a misinterpreted impression of me backing out. I thought the tournament would start a lot earlier than it is. In the event that it did I tried to get a participant to play test one of my decks for me and play it in the tournament. Now that I see it's starting in a week I should have an Xbox by then and if anyone drops out I'd like in.

Also, what are your rules on who goes first and second. Usually the loser goes first but Duels is not going to know this. Are you going to dismiss this rule for your tournament?
