    6. FTW: Concealed Courtyard, Student of Warfare, Path to Exile, Evil Presence

    1. Asthereal (TO): Looks like I'm not the only one who brought back Evil Presence with Hexdrinker out, but you prepared for the mirror! I can't level Student, but you can't play Forge Devil on an empty board either, so I just do nothing waiting to PtE Sadist if you ever play it. We draw. DD 2-2
    2. Wrath of Pie: I play Student. If you play Simic Growth Chamber, I Evil Presence it while it's tapped. If you play Mayor, I Path it. WW 6-0
    3. Tylert: Evil Presence is Evil. WW 6-0
    4. H: OTP I play Student of Warfare. Despise has no targets. Student races Thalia. OTD you Despise my Student. You play Thalia and I can't Path it. WL 3-3
    5. Moosedog: I Path to Exile your Student, and you Gut Shot mine. DD 2-2

    19 points (5 wins, 4 draws, 1 loss)

    No math! Student of Warfare could have been Benalish Hero in most of those games.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    1. Asthereal (TO): Blackcleave Cliffs, Evil Presence, Cruel sadist, Forge Devil
    Agree DD

    2. Wrath of Pie: Pendelhaven, Simic Growth Chamber, Oko, Thief of Crowns, Mayor of Avabruck
    Ok, i'm treating the mayor and gut shot as canceling each other out. So then its an Oko, student race.
    M; play student
    W-play pendelhaven
    M-student level 2. attack
    W-Play tapped land
    M-student level3 attack
    W-play oko, make food. (oko6)
    M-student level 4-attack oko, use growth +2 (oko 1)
    W-make food an elk (oko2)
    M-student level 5-attack oko. Elk blocks.
    W-make food (oko4)
    M-level 6 student attack (oko1)
    W-make food into elk (oko2)
    And the cycle repeats until I get double strike and can kill Oko. Unless Im missing a line you never have a window to chump with an elk and make student an elk. WW

    3. Tylert: Mountain, Rakdos carnarium, Ensnaring bridge, Granite shard
    Agree, I got nothing for bridge LL

    4. H: Blackcleave Cliffs, Inspiring Vantage, Despise, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
    Agree, DW

    5. ME

    6. FTW: Concealed Courtyard, Student of Warfare, Path to Exile, Evil Presence
    Agree, DD

    You mean Eager Cadet, not being legal in Modern would have cost you quite a few points.

    The Pendelhaven is relevant here. Wrath can use it to protect Mayor from Gut Shot.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Standings for round 11 will follow after Wrath and Moosedog have resolved their matchup.
    But it looks like I'm clinching another round, which means I also take the crown this season.
    And it means for the season finale, we're looking at the banning of these cards:
    Blackcleave Cliffs, Evil Presence, Cruel Sadist and Forge Devil.

    Since I should be there already, I'll just yolo the last round and play something rediculous. So here we go:


    ROUND 12, the SEASON FINALE of SEASON 5: MODERN MADNESS has started.

    I have PM'ed myself my deck for round 12, so you can start sending me your decks.

    DEADLINE: Wednesday the 1st of April (nope, no joke), at 11:00AM Central European Time.
    (That's my time zone. Pacific Time it'll probably be something like Tuesday night a bit past midnight, so keep that in mind.)

    PLEASE NOTE:
    The way you send your deck to me matters. Please send it in the way described below, so it doesn't cost me an hour of editing before I can post all the decks.
    Please send your deck as follows: Swamp, Mountain, Blightspeaker, Combust (so with card tags around each card, and not above eachother), with your Username and 4CB S05R12 in the topic.
    Many of you already do this. Thanks a lot, this really saves me a lot of time and hassle of copying and pasting text and tags!
    Don't forget to keep an eye on the banned list. It will grow every round. You'll find the banned list in the second post of the thread, or in our Google Spreadsheet.

    After the deadline has passed, I will post all decks on the forum here, and you can start puzzling out your scores.
    If you have any questions, please read the first two posts of this thread first. If you can't find the answer there, drop a message here. We'll answer a.s.a.p.

    Also, if you've been lurking on this thread and looking to join, you can step in anytime, any round. That's no problem at all. Just send me your deck before the deadline, and I'll add you to the competition.

    Happy deck designing everybody!

    Yep, good point. It's LL for me then.

    Thanks.

    That concludes our calculations for round 11. Here are the standings:
    1. Asthereal (TO): 20 - 4
    2. FTW: 19 - 3,8
    3. H: 17 - 3,4
    4. Wrath of Pie: 12 - 2,4
    5. Moosedog: 8 - 1,6
    6. Tylert: 6 - 1,2

    Which leads to these standings for season 5, after round 11:
    1. Asthereal (TO): 40,8
    2. FTW: 32,5
    3. Tylert: 30,3
    4. H: 28,3
    5. Wrath of Pie: 24,2
    6. Moosedog: 11,6

    So FTW takes back second place, but other than that we've been pretty constant these last rounds.
    The last round unfortunately isn't as interesting as could have been, but the middle pack can still swap places, so there's still some stuff to fight for.

    Good luck, and if anyone still wants to post ideas for season 6 (weird rounds with variants of 4CB and MtG), more ideas are still welcome.
    I'll be designing a season during the coming weekend, hopefully, so more info will follow shortly.

    Too bad Thalakos Lowlands isn't legal.

    If you need more Modern 4CB in your life, apparently Reddit is to the rescue.
