1  MagicPlayer Highlander / Reports / Metagame Masters 10 - Report, 4c Blood, 11th place on: 13-11-2017, 03:51:14 PM
I promised a report on Facebook, so here it is. 
It's up on my blog because it contains too much text and images.

3  MagicPlayer Highlander / Banned List & Rules / Re: Banlist changes - Oct. 1st on: 13-09-2016, 02:20:49 PM
BAN ? Y/N
Demonic Tutor N. I would still keep this as iconic card. I would leave it be because this is one of the ways some interesting and not so good decks can still competete against decks that are actually well tuned.
Fastbond N. I know what this card does in Vintage but I have never seen a player to abuse it in this way in Highlander. Unless this starts to get common I would keep the card unbanned
Mana Drain N. Even though I want to vote No, this card actually can be a really huge swing for the Mana Drain player. I've won so many games just because of the additional mana that I can actually agree with anyone who says that the card should be banned. In our community the card was well accepted so for that reason I still want to keep it unbanned.
Mishra's Workshop N. This card in my opinion is very fringe. It would most probably be played by staxx or artifact base combo. T1 Trinisphere if these two cards can show up together might be a problem but how often will this happen? Often Workshop comes into play when there is already many other sources of mana. If it hits the table turn 1 it may and it may not win the game.
Mystical Tutor N. I would vote no, since the card alone does not kill. If this card searches for the same card always, the tutored card might be reviewed instead. In general I don't mind seeing this card go though.
Oath of Druids N/Y. I'm not sure about this one. I never died to Oath even when this deck was around. But that was mostly because I could deal with it often. Being in different position I would most probably complain.
Tainted Pact Y. This card is instant demonic tutor in a sense and I always frowned when I saw the card being played because it meant instant death. It doesn't matter if it was me casting it or my opponent.
Timetwister N. unless combo becomes prevalent, I wouldn't ban the card.
Tolarian Academy N. unless combo becomes prevalent, I wouldn't ban the card. This card requires the player to play many artifacts and thus won't see play much anyway.
Yawgmoth's Will N. unless combo becomes prevalent, I wouldn't ban the card.

Unban Y/N
Gifts Ungiven N. I think unbanning this is rather dangerous but I may be wrong. I don't have enough experience with that but I have enough experience with Loam and Intuition. If this card gets unbanned I would find a way how to abuse it and I think many people would do the same.
Stoneforge Mystic N. Honestly, banning of this card made me leave the Highlander community. Since then I moved to play Vintage instead where I wasn't really limited by banlist that would change once in a while. After a very long time though of facing Stoneforge Mystics in other formats I finally understood the reasoning behind banning this card and I think of it when I kill someone with Sword of Fire and Ice or Batterskull that comes into play early. On the other hand there are more ways how to deal with Batterskull now. The question is, would people running white play SFM package? I would say yes. I still miss my little Kor... So in the end I would keep the card banned so it wouldn't need to be rebanned.

Someone mentioned Natural Order. I'm happily killing people with it on Magic Online now and I can see that this card feels like being from another world. It just wins the games too often. Even if the meta is Ux now...I would keep it banned.

hello there,
when I first came to the tournament series I was quite surprised that the organizator was not collecting decklists. But after few tournaments I understood why. The community is quite closed and most players know each other pretty well. that also means that they know who plays what deck. these people don't cheat and have already prepared for opponent's decks anyway...

I was an outsider and had no idea what to expect but my aggro control deck was capable of winning some games and getting some 1:1 results.

Ad prices. The entry fee is low and the prizes we get are good (equivalent). It's not an old dual land we could get if we go to local legacy tournament but it is still good. it's nice, considering the fact that one person does all this and it costs him time and money as well.

I can also understand why some people would not want to post (or even submit to the organizer) decklists. I've spent quite some time trying to make my decks work and it would certainly feel pretty awkward if the decklists would show up on some server. Not knowing your opponent's deck is actually quite good.
