sorry guys

4 players within 14 days are not enough to keep this online league alive
maybe we can try another online tournament format somewhere else in the future

registration closed / concerning price-pool see here: http://www.magicplayer.org/forum/index.php?topic=1344.0

7  MagicPlayer Highlander / Deck Lists / Re: Commander Constructed League - decklists on: 13-08-2018, 07:20:47 PM
I'm interested in following up how the power level increase will affect the format. Gut feeling is that it is for the better.

surprisingly it is still much fun to play
maybe even better than before

Tazi won some leagues with Kess and Teferi as Commander recently
here you can find the lists he played:

Kess -> https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/mtgo-standings/competitive-commander-constructed-league-2018-07-29
Teferi -> https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/mtgo-standings/competitive-commander-constructed-league-2018-08-05


for last duel-commander-challenge we worked together on this Leovold Flash-Hulk-deck:
https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/mtgo-standings/commander-1-v-1-challenge-2018-08-12

lost first round vs Teferi
and won half the remaining games with combo and other half with Leovold + draw7 / Teferi Puzzle Box

btw. never unban Flash(-Hulk) again Wink

new approach to "fix" duel commander"

https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-online/magic-online-1v1-commander-update-2018-07-20

Since the inception of the Magic Online 1v1 Commander format, it has undergone a large number of changes relative to our usual banning cadence. While many of these actions had temporary positive impact as players explored new possibilities, it has become increasingly clear that there are fundamental problems with the way the format is currently constructed. At its current power level, the combination of high consistency from your commander and low consistency from your deck pushes the metagame toward finding a high density of cards with similar effects. Because many of the raw power outliers from Magic's history have been removed from the format as we've attempted to correct the format in our usual way by trimming the strongest decks, it's also challenging to make large strides in games that are not easily undone by your opponent.

It's clear by now that the partner mechanic is dominant; providing access to both four colors and an extra card in your starting hand is too powerful relative to the other options. However, it is also becoming clear that they are not the root of the format's current problems. Attritive mana-advantage strategies trying to interact on tight margins and pull ahead incrementally over the course of the game have been dominant in this format since its inception, and we don't believe that simply removing partners from the format will solve this.

So, we're trying something more radical. This update is essentially a reimagining of the format at a significantly higher power level. As it's become clear that our usual banning strategy of trimming powerful outliers until a diverse format emerges isn't working, we'll try a different vision for the format.

This update significantly raises the power level of the format. Our hope with this suite of changes is that access to additional artifact mana and lands may allow bigger mana strategies to function that can go over the top of these attritive tempo decks, or for more standard strategies to outpace getting incrementally chipped out. In conjunction with the extra mana, tutors have more options than simply finding the most efficient card to shut down the game. In allowing a stronger suite of interactions to occur sooner in the game, there's additional reward to finding very powerful things to do in line with Legacy or even Vintage interactions. We'll be keeping an eye on the consistency of decks in this new world, as core to this format is the idea that wild things can happen and neither player is sure what will come up next.

We've never undergone such a large-scale change to a format before, so it's somewhat unclear how the future will unfold, but I hope you're as excited as we are to find out!

The following changes take effect on Magic Online on July 25:

Rules change: You may only have one commander. Creatures with a partner ability function as if they did not have that ability.

The following cards are no longer banned in 1v1 Commander:

Ancient Tomb
Brainstorm
Chrome Mox
Demonic Tutor
Dig Through Time
Enlightened Tutor
Entomb
Gaea's Cradle
Imperial Seal
Mana Crypt
Mana Drain
Mana Vault
Mox Diamond
Mystical Tutor
Necropotence
Ponder
Preordain
Sol Ring
Sylvan Tutor
Treachery
Treasure Cruise
Vampiric Tutor
Vial Smasher the Fierce
Worldly Tutor
Yawgmoth's Bargain

New Season won't start before we are at least 8 participants.
http://www.magicplayer.org/forum/index.php?topic=1364.msg14348#new
If we can't find enough players till end of June there will a summer break and we will have another try in autumn.


We will have a summer break till September 9th.
Then i will try to launch a new season again as we have currently only 2 participants (firestarter an me).
As the future of the tournament series is unclear everyone is free to change back PP for EUR 3 each (or choose from current price-pool -> http://www.magicplayer.org/forum/index.php?topic=1344.0).

15  MagicPlayer Highlander / [HLL] Online Highlander League & Ladder Tournament / Standing Orders Season XXXIII on: 10-06-2018, 07:47:41 PM
Tournament Organizer: Vazdru

Judge: hitman

Modus: Swiss-Rounds best-of-three, play-offs best-of-five

Rules Enforcement Level: Regular

Starting Fee: EUR 6
*New* You have also the chance to join the league without paying entry fee. Then you don't have the chance to pick prices at the end of the tournament and you will only be paired against players who are out of contention for prices ( other players who haven't paid entry fee or players who can't reach Top 4 rather Top 8 ).

One deck: The deck code (Cockatrice) has to be posted before the tournament starts. Decks can’t be changed during the whole tournament (deck codes become locked as soon as the tournament starts).

Matchplay: Matches have to be played within a period of about two weeks. The staff announce a deadline for each round at Sunday, 9 pm CET. If both don't appear, it is a draw. If only one player appears he gets the win if he used the "[HLL]Meeting Point" for match-dating, otherwise it's a draw. (Note: Thereby using the Meeting Point instead of PM or that kind is highly recommended!)

Report: The winner of each match has to post the result and (at least a small) report as soon as possible but no later than one week after the deadline of this round. The looser can take this over or can write a report too if he likes to.

Vacation: Each player can announce a vacation period of 1 week once during the whole tournament (Swiss + Top X). In that case the period for playing the match prolongates for everyone by 1 week. A matchplay-period can't be prolongated more than once. The staff will announce a new deadline for the round in case a vacation period has been requested.

Prices: You will find the price-pool over here: http://www.magicplayer.org/forum/index.php?topic=1344.0 It will be updated and become locked as soon as the tournament starts.

Rounds: Depends on number of registered players:
2: 1 round
3-4: 2 rounds
5-8: 3 rounds
9-16: 4 rounds
17-32: 5 rounds
33+: 6 rounds

Play-offs:
8-16 players: play-offs TOP 4
17+ players: play-offs TOP 8

Deck-Building: Current Banned List at the beginning of the tournament. Unban Watch List cards are unavailable.

Decklists must be send to hitman before the tournament starts. Top 4 rather Top 8 will be published before play-offs.

The results and match-report of the last swiss round will be gathered by hitman. He will publish the results as soon all results are available.

Higher Swiss Standing
chooses the starting player in g1 in play-offs.

If you have any questions, contact Vazdru or hitman.

The small print: In case Cockatrice becomes unavailable for more than 2 weeks, the tournament would become annulled and everyone get back their starting fee (no prices). I hope and expect this won't happen.
