    I successfully removed 8 points from your potential sweep, though failed to score much on my own.

    T0 Inquiry was better than holding up an answer. You picked a good window to play that deck with the main T0 obstacles like Force of Will, Leyline of the Void and Chancellor of the Annex banned, but Leyline and Inquiry still legal. Smart choice!

    Thanks!
    Actually my big motivation for Leyline of anticipation was to beat force of negation, which was the card I expected most after ghost quarter. Failed to materialise though.

    This is better than Memenite, now I'm disappointed in myself.

    I was hoping people would overthink this and end up playing stuff that's good against those, which I would then prey upon.
    Turns out I was the one overthinking this. Should just have played the most degenerative legal combo I could find.

    Re: 4 Card Blind: Ban-Back Better

    Did you know that you have all weekend to get your deck together for Monday?
    And the best part is you only need four cards!
    You don't even need them! You only have to name them!

    I haven't looked, in the kind who will change my choice a thousand times so I need to keep that freedom open by not peeking

    THE DECKS!

    dte: Reanimate, Grief, Swamp, Force of despair Notes: It's a scam
    GoblinSmashmaster: Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Forge, Pyrokinesis, Leyline of the Meek Notes: Goblin smash!
    Wrath of Pie: Bayou, Swarm Shambler, Blackmail, Pithing Needle Notes: N/A
    FTW: Agadeem's Awakening, Grief, Force of Despair, Reanimate Notes: Scam
    Four dogs: Leyline of Sanctity, Leyline of the Guildpact, Scion of Draco, Serra's Sanctum Notes: LEYLINES BABY!

    E: I had to correct a few typos, Goblin Smashmaster I think you meant of the forge and I meant Serra's sanctum

    Re: 4 Card Blind: Ban-Back Better

    I spent all weekend trying to find a land that tapped for 2 so I could do: Sol Land, Leyline, Scion, Daze. But in the end I settled on this. (the other idea was Leyline binding instead of Leyline of Sanctity, and not be able to cast Scion until t2 and force draws on 1 threat decks.)

    E: Mus in progress
    dte: Reanimate, Grief, Swamp, Force of despair Notes: It's a scam
    2 DD: If you scam grief you can't cast Force and Scion Races, so you hold Force forever

    GoblinSmashmaster: Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Forge, Pyrokinesis, Leyline of the Meek Notes: Goblin smash!
    6 WW: Lifelink means you can't race.

    Wrath of Pie: Bayou, Swarm Shambler, Blackmail, Pithing Needle Notes: N/A
    6 WW: Flying!

    FTW: Agadeem's Awakening, Grief, Force of Despair, Reanimate Notes: Scam
    2 DD: Hey wait a minute

    Four dogs: Leyline of Sanctity, Leyline of the Guildpact, Scion of Draco, Serra's Sanctum Notes: LEYLINES BABY!
    Leyline dominating all formats, even 4cb!

    Me, getting hit by the rules this time!

    GoblinSmashmaster: Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Forge, Pyrokinesis, Leyline of the Meek Notes: Goblin smash!
    2-2. My alternative deck used chancellor of the forge (for T1 kill), so I would also have lost points on the round rule, and would have scored exactly the same overall (5).

    Wrath of Pie: Bayou, Swarm Shambler, Blackmail, Pithing Needle Notes: N/A
    4-1.
    6

    FTW: Agadeem's Awakening, Grief, Force of Despair, Reanimate Notes: Scam
    3-3. And -6 :(
    3

    Four dogs: Leyline of Sanctity, Leyline of the Guildpact, Scion of Draco, Serra's Sanctum Notes: LEYLINES BABY!
    2-2
    5

    5 points this round. Not a great score, but it feels nice that the round rule work!

    Edit: below is just me not knowing the rules :/
    Kept, otherwise 4dogs' post would be weird (and maybe others would learn as well that waste is not a basic land type).

    You also had the option to go waste and leyline binding (could cast both leyline and draco T1). Or waste and needle or chronomaton or daze or second draco.
    But given the meta you made the right choice!

    Wastes doesn't have a basic land type and doesn't count for domain.

    Wrath of Pie: Bayou, Swarm Shambler, Blackmail, Pithing Needle Notes: N/A

    dte: Reanimate, Grief, Swamp, Force of despair Notes: It's a scam - DL
    GoblinSmashmaster: Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Forge, Pyrokinesis, Leyline of the Meek Notes: Goblin smash! - LL - You never reveal Leyline of the Meek so you can hide Pyrokinesis from Blackmail.
    FTW: Agadeem's Awakening, Grief, Force of Despair, Reanimate Notes: Scam - DL
    Four dogs: Leyline of Sanctity, Leyline of the Guildpact, Scion of Draco, Serra's Sanctum Notes: LEYLINES BABY! - LL

    2d = 2 points

    Not a good round for Blackmail. Or Pithing Needle.

    GoblinSmashmaster: I could Force the tokens to draw but then can't make a threat. I could also Grief Chancellor & Reanimate (getting 1 Goblin token), but then you can use Pyro to make Chancellor trade with 1 token. DD 2-2

    Wrath of Pie: OTP Grief the Shambler, Reanimate & take Needle.
    OTD if you cast Shambler first, I Force it and Reanimate. You can Needle but that 1 1/1 is the only creature and wins. If you Blackmail first, taking any 1 card means I can't do 2 things (Force + Reanimate, Grief + Reanimate), so I can only answer Shambler with either Force or Grief.
    WD 4-1

    Dte: OTP scam you, discarding Force first, then Grief. OTD you scam me.
    WL 3-3

    Four dogs: 2nd Leyline worked well for you!! Can't discard you. But I can kill Scion with Force and Reanimate, so you can't cast Scion either. DD 2-2

    (2 wins, 5 draw, 1 loss) 11 pts - 6 = 5 pts
