Hello Ladies and Gentle-nerds!
The hour has approached nigh, and it’s time to get the ball rolling. Are you ready to rumble!? I am!
We ended up with 48 participants in the league, and that’s amazing. We also now have an even number of participants, so that means no one has to suffer through a BYE week. I hated the idea of anyone having a down week, and now, fortunately, we won’t have to worry about it.
Here is the list of final participants in the League. You will also receive this list, with email addresses, privately. But feel free to start adding people to your buddy list.
no silver bullet
Just a quick set of reminders!
Please report the Match Results in the comments at the bottom of the article each week. Both players need to report. Please report in a style as follows:
“Hey, I’m Denofbears and I went 2-1 against Dysond.”
“Hey, Dysond here, and I went 1-2 when I battled Denofbears.”
Something like that. Please include both players names, and the full win-loss record, as I will be tracking that as well as the points each round just in case I need them for Tie breakers for the top 8.
If it’s Purple don’t play it! Just a friendly reminder. Keep it simple: Purple is no good!
Don’t cheat, and I am sure you all don’t plan on cheating on purpose and I know that accidents happen. If your opponent is playing cards that are not Modern legal, or outside Silverblack rarity, please screenshot and send to me.
First instance of this happening will result in me just talking to you, and a match loss for that week.
Second will result in me removing you from the league. Don’t do it. Play fair.
I suggest reading the pairings and setting up the date and time for your match as soon as you can each week. 9pm CST is when the pairings will go up each week. Don’t wait. Bava will be sending a group email with everyone’s email addresses. Don’t hesitate to send emails to each other set things up.
I am adding a few prizes for people in the League, and more prizes may be announced later.
First off I am awarding two cards to pool for the two players who play the most matches in the league. I know people may miss a week here or there. Life happens, that’s just the way things go. I am going to give my Vintage Masters prerelease Magistrate of Worth. I don’t play multiplayer at all, and maybe you guys can have more fun with them then I will!
The second new prize set will be two avatars for MTGO: one is the Black Lotus avatar and the other is Dack Fayden. One of the unfortunate parts of the League is someone will win, but a few poor souls will end up on the bottom. I never want anyone to feel bad after playing in any event. I want the last two ranked people in the league to still feel powerful and expensive, so you two will get to win my Black Lotus avatar and my Dack Fayden avatar!
Last thing before I post the pairings. If anyone has any questions about anything at all please email me at [email protected] Don’t hesitate for a second to email me. Card legality, deck suggestions, help using V4, whatever you need. whenever you need it, just let me know.
Pairings for week one are going to be done at random using Random.org. After that I am going to use a pairing system based around points and win loss records as is the rule of thumb for all things Magic.
