March 2016 League
« on: Feb 16, 2016 10:24AM »

Hey there all you Planeswalkers!

We are working on the next league! There was consideration around banning certain commanders for the next league in order to make it more friendly. However,  we may just do an offset of league points for using those commanders instead.

UPDATE: Rules are still under review but the draft is posted below.

I looked into it and alot people trying to start up commander leagues have had trouble with ban lists in fear of singling out one player, penalties is a good idea, it'll encourage them not to use it even if they have the chance, me I'll just switch out my commander unless I myself is playing one of the banned commanders in that case there should be no penalties

The league starts on Feb 28th!! The last day of the league is April 9th.

The idea is to try and create a fun, easy going league!

Here are the rules!

- No land destruction or infect. If a card is drawn that has solely either purpose, reveal it then exile it and draw a new card. Land can be destroyed if there is replacement for something else, such as for a basic land or a creature. Cards like Strip Mine can only tap for mana. Cards with multiple destruction triggers like "destroy an artifact, enchantment and land" would only trigger on nonland.
- every game will be logged on a record sheet and turned in to a TBS employee or T.O.
- Points will be used from the best 5 games in a week (Sunday to Saturday) and you must have at least one unique player in each of your games for the game to count. The unique player rule resets every week.
- non league players may play in games but do not count toward the total number of players and do not count as "unique players"
- points are allocated as follows:
* -2 points if a Power General is used (see the Power Generals list below)
* +2 points if an unmodified prebuilt Commander Deck is used
* +1 for a "Dual"/"1V1" match
* +2 for a 3 to 4 person game
* +3 for a 5+ person game
- Dark Depths and Rogues Passage are banned due to lack of land destruction. Both lands will just tap for colorless mana, even Dark Depths which does not typically have that activated ability.
