    Sorry everybody, I was on vacation with just my phone who's web browser would not properly load pages. I should be good for next week though. Seems we are doing OK even so, 17? Was I holding people back or something?

    Could you please explain your take this one? I have us as DD - quoting my earlier post:

    OTP, I can Daze Tinder Wall and trap Bombardment in your hand; OTD, recurring Tinder Wall makes Daze redundant after your first turn, but I can Nature's Claim your Goblin Bombardment to stop the combo. Either way, we are left with two Young Wolves, which stalemate. Two draws.

    J can win OTP by playing around Daze but missed that you can't win OTD, only stop the combo with Daze. You do have Nature's Claim, but that means leaving mana open and never casting a creature.

    OTP
    J - Tinder Wall, go (plays around Daze)
    S - Wolf, go

    J - Wolf. Bombardment -> Infinite damage (with mana to pay for Daze on anything)
    To avoid that, you can't cast Wolf and have to leave Nature's Claim up to interact

    J - Tinder Wall, go (plays around Daze)
    S - Land, go

    J - Wolf, go (can pay for Daze)
    S - If you play Wolf, combo beats you. If you don't, Wolf beats you. You don't have the tempo to deal with both.
    Win

    OTD
    S - Wolf, go
    J - Tinder Wall or Wolf eats Daze, then the other one draws vs Wolf
    Draw

    WD 4-1 for jhhdk

    Turn 1 Kill would be better, but this is only turn 2 kill because Young Wolf needs green mana (unlike Rakdos Cackler). So you trade turn 2 kills here WL 3-3

    I imagine you are at-least-mostly joking, but if the number of
    participants does get to be problematically large, at least the
    time needed to work out match results
    issue could be mitigated by not doing a full round-robin.

    (Instead, one could use only the matches corresponding
    to the edges of a moderately-dense expander.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expander_graph
    However, this would not address the issue of the time
    it takes for you to post the decks and standings.)

    Yep, you're right - missed that I don't actually have a window to kill Bombardment when I'm OTD. Adjusting my result accordingly (-1 point).

    That's me, sporting a bad deck: I expected quite a few LLotV, so I didn't play a T1 combo deck, but I also did not play a deck that was good vs LLotV or combo. well...
    Good point is that as I am late on the party, MUs have been figured out already.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    I tried to check if there was a way I could draw or beat Shadow OTP, but that extra Tinder Wall ends up making a big difference vs my dead Duress, which really wishes it was Crashing Footfalls or Narnam Renegade.

    T1 1/1 Ooze / Wall [F=20, D=17]
    T2 2/2 Ooze waits / Pay 3 life, otherwise Ooze grows too big [F=20, D=14]
    T3 3/3 Ooze waits / Death's Shadow 2/2 [F=20, D=11]
    T4 4/4 Ooze waits / Pay 3 life, attack with 5/5 Shadow [F=15, D=8]
    T5 5/5 Ooze waits and offers trade / Pay 3 life, attack with 8/8 Shadow [F=7, D=5]
    T6 6/6 Ooze attacks but chumped by Tinder Wall / 8/8 Shadow kills [F=-1, D=5]

    You have to deal yourself 15 damage as fast as possible to get Shadow bigger than Ooze, but once it is then Tinder Wall buys you the chump block needed to win the race.

    By starting to attack at 4/4 I can speed up the race a bit so it's [F=3, D=2] after turn 5, but then my 6/6 Ooze still gets chumped by Tinder Wall and I die to the counterattack.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Standings for round 5:
    1. Serguei: 69 - 4,3
    1. GoblinSmashmaster: 69 - 4,3
    3. mattamort: 67 - 4,2
    4. Tylert: 61 - 3,8
    5. RoosterCocoa: 58 - 3,6
    5. PJim: 58 - 3,6
    7. FTW: 50 - 3,1
    8. maxx!: 44 - 2,8
    9. alphastryk: 38 - 2,4
    10. Reeplcheep: 37 - 2,3
    11. dte: 37 - 2,3
    12. Phasmoid: 37 - 2,3
    13. Asthereal (TO): 32 - 2
    13. silkster: 32 - 2
    15. shiftyhomunculus: 27 - 1,7
    16. Wrath of Pie: 23 - 1,4
    17. jhhdk: 19 - 1,2

    Which leads to these bannings:
    BitterBlossom
    Collective Defiance
    Crashing Footfalls
    Leyline of the void
    Peat Bog
    Surgical extraction
    Taiga
    Tinder Wall
    Unmask

    And this is how the season looks at the 33% mark:
    1. Serguei: 20,2
    2. Tylert: 20,1
    3. dte: 18
    4. silkster: 17,6
    5. FTW: 16,7
    6. maxx!: 16
    7. mattamort: 15,9
    8. GoblinSmashmaster: 15,8
    9. PJim: 14,3
    10. alphastryk: 13,1
    11. RoosterCocoa: 12,1
    12. Wrath of Pie: 11,8
    13. Reeplcheep: 10,8
    14. jhhdk: 8,4
    15. Asthereal (TO): 7,6
    16. H: 4,8
    17. Phasmoid: 4,2
    18. shiftyhomunculus: 1,7

    So Serguei and Tylert are battling hard for the top spot, with dte and silk in pursuit.
    Our newer players PJim, mattamort and RoosterCocoa are also kicking ass. Well done to you, too!
    Looks like H and myself need to step up our game a bit.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Phasmoid pointed out that controllers of triggers matter, so I have added a slight bit to the wording of our round rule.
    This round, the trigger will have no controller or target.
    (Next round, however, the controller of the artifact will be the controller of the trigger that makes the token.)

    But anyway, let's get the next round going.


    ROUND 6 OF SEASON 10: DEVIANT LEGACY BANNATHON has started.

    This round we play Antagonism: At the beginning of each player’s end step, that player loses 2 life unless one of their opponents lost life that turn.
    (This triggered ability has no controller or target, so effects that care about either will do nothing.)

    I have PM'ed myself my deck for round 6, so you can start sending me your decks.

    DEADLINE: Wednesday the 23rd of June 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, Swamp, Dauthi Slayer, Black Knight.
    So with card tags around each card, and not above eachother, and with your Username and 4CB S10R06 in the topic.
    Don't forget to keep an eye on the banned list. You'll find it 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.

    Happy deck building!
    Join the 4 Card Blind competition!

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    I found that the spreadsheet has inconsistent entries for 3 matches:

    Wrath of Pie ​ vs ​ Serguei
    Serguei ​ vs ​ maxx!
    maxx! ​ vs ​ jhhdk


    For ​ ​ ​ Wrath of Pie ​ vs ​ Serguei ​ , ​ ​ ​ Serguei recognized a
    disagreement with ​ Wrath of Pie ​ and ​ Wrath of Pie ’s ​ results post
    was subsequently edited and now agrees with Serguei’s.
    I accordingly updated the spreadsheet.

    I don't have time to look into the results for the other 2 of those 3 matches
    right now, but I note that fortunately, they can't affect the top 3.
    (However, they can still affect standings and season points.)



    Incidentally, the way I found those inconsistencies was
    the conditional formatting I mentioned on the previous page.
    Since no one had mentioned finding any bug in it, I had wanted one
    more test before next round, so I tried applying it to the results grid.
    That showed the inconsistent entries, but I undid that formatting in case
    anyonewants to check it more in the testing area (W21 to Z25 inclusive)
    before it gets left in the actual results grid.

    maxx!: Forest, Tinder Wall, Narnam Renegade, Collective Defiance
    Serguei: Peat Bog, BitterBlossom, Unmask, Surgical extraction

    Serguei needs Extraction to stop Tinder Wall from making four mana. If he doesn't, Defiance will make him discard the house.
    If maxx! uses the Wall immediately, Serguei can Extract and maxx! won't have mana to do other things, but maxx! can wait.
    If maxx! goes Tinder Wall, wait, Serguei can't make Bitterblossom yet, but he can use Unmask (discarding Extraction) to discard Defiance, protecting Blossom.
    So Bitterblossom will hit no matter what happens.
    The difference maxx! missed with Extraction vs. Leyline, I think, is that Leyline has to hit the board to work, but Extraction only needs to be kept at the ready, and can still be used to exile to Unmask if you don't need it.
    I think Serguei wins this. 6-0

    &

    maxx!: Forest, Tinder Wall, Narnam Renegade, Collective Defiance
    jhhdk: Forest, Tinder Wall, Young Wolf, Goblin Bombardment

    maxx! said this: OTP discard your hand. OTD Young Wolf is the best you can do before I discard your hand, and then Renegade and Wolf fight forever. 4-1
    jhhdk said LL without explanation. Perhaps the Wolf/Renegade staredown was overlooked here.
    I reckon the 4-1 maxx! reported is correct.

    I wondered if Leyline of the Void would be a player. That might have been the better choice, but I thought discard might be a thing too.

    Ooze isn't the best persister, so I can trade with it.
    DD

    26 points, 1.625 on the round.

    Thanks for doing my results the previous rounds.
    For the Mythic round, the only decks I could see were Heart of Kiran + W6, Valki+ (something else), and Transcendent Master. They go rock-paper-scissors, so I went with the one that kills 1-toughness stuff, but it was pretty much a toss up.
    Dual Nature ended up being too much of a T1 format. I thought for a moment that Force of Despair would be huge, but then realized that you can stack the discard and copy triggers so that you can take the Force before the copy resolves.
    I guess it should have been obvious that Leyline of the Void is the real king, but I haven't had as much time.

    I didn't think it would, but losing to a cartel feels bad. Not that there's a better alternative.
