PostSubject: Tournament idea: "block constructed"   Fri Mar 19, 2010 7:29 pm

Players of Magic: the Gathering will be familiar with Block Constructed. It's a play format in which the card pool from which you build your deck is limited to one specific block, or group of three sets. I'm thinking that once UDA gets started properly, we could run tournaments that follow similar rules. They would be best suited as small, almost pick-up tournaments due to their simplicity, and it would be nice to decide on a special banlist for the "format" before each tournament is announced (which I'd happily help with). Here's a rundown of what I'm talking about:

"LOB block": Only cards printed in Legend of Blue-Eyes White Dragon, Metal Raiders, and Magic Ruler are legal.
"PSV block": Only cards printed in Pharaoh's Servant, Labyrinth of Nightmare, and Legacy of Darkness are legal.
"PGD block": Only cards printed in Pharaonic Guardian, Magician's Force, and Dark Crisis are legal.

Etcetera. Tell me what you think.

Afterthought: GLAS block (Gladiator's Assault, Phantom Darkness, Light of Destruction) is going to be fun. >_>

Sounds cool, to me. Though I've played Magic before I've never heard of Block Tournaments though. Next time me and you are on, we can work on it. Also we'll have to make sure to post all the cards that are allowed in the specific blocks, because I just know people will ask for the list, so to save us the time and trouble we could just do post it when we post the tournament.

But let me make 100% I'm understanding this right. For the LoB Block, you would be limited to the cards from that specific Booster Pack? Maybe if some packs didn't have a whole lot of spell or traps (I don't think there's any like that though) we could add in some cards ourselves that are permitted.

By the way, if you can, and don't care to, be working on some pictures for it that you like, ask zaberman for the dimensions of the picture, I can't remember them at the moment.

Really? You haven't heard of it? o.o

Anyway, yes, we should probably get the banlists ready as soon as possible. As for a list of legal cards, that will be far too long and unnecessary. Just post a link to each relevant set's Wikia page.

Yes, you are limited to cards in those three sets and those three sets only. If the spells amongst those sets are scarce/crap, then it'll just be a format with few spells being played then, won't it? Adding other cards would defeat the purpose.

You mean like the banners you have for each subforum? I'm afraid that sort of stuff is beyond me.

That's cool, and fine by me. Your right too, that would ultimately defeat the purpose.

Your probably right about the legals too. If you want to, find materials for the banner, that you think would like good, and ask zaberman to work on it for you, I don't have Photoshop or even GIMP anymore, so I can't work on it, and I'll work on the topic, and typing out the rules here soon.

Also to save us the trouble (for now) of typing up all the banned cards of each booster, we can give the ban list whenever we start the tournament of that booster. Until we complete them all and catch up to the most recent booster (on KCVDS of course)
