Judge Report : MTG Romania Nationals 2011


After 9 days i post my report of Romanian nationals from the judge point of view.
The winner, Adrian Posoiu, is a BlackBorder article writer and he already posted his experience here.

This is my first Competitive (40k) REL event that i was judging. The head Judge, Mircea Pienar was flawless and thought me many lessons. He was also my mentor and test reviewer for my L1 Judge test.


Cum jucam Magic


Cum jucam Magic: the Gathering ?

Articol preluat de pe

Magic se joaca sub doua forme principale : “competitve” si “casual”.

1.Jucam competitiv la turneele organizate de shopul local, in general la sfarsit de saptamana, unde trebuie sa respectam o serie de reguli ce tin de organizarea turneelor. Mai mult, turneele competitive se impart in mai multe tipuri, numite “formate”, astfel:

A. Constructed Block. In componenta deckului cu care jucam nu trebuie sa intre decat carti din cel mai recent block de 3 seturi care a fost lansat in toamna cea mai recenta (in general la 1 octombrie ). Pentru a ne folosi de un exemplu curent, concursurile de Block vor viza folosirea doar a cartilor din Blockul Scars of Mirrodin, Block care nu contine inca decat un singur set si anume omonimul Scars of Mirrodin, intrucat urmatoarele seturi se vor lansa in februarie respectiv aprilie anul viitor, seturi ce vor intregi pe rand totalitatea cartilor valabile in formatul Block.


GS Championship Report


Although late, i found time to write my report of GS Championship 2010.

I predicted that the format will overwhelmed by Control decks, so i chose to play a Blue-Black Control with some changes.
The deck i played :

Lands (25)
Creeping Tar Pit
Darkslick Shores
Drowned Catacomb
Tectonic Edge

Removal/Filtering/Card Draw (17)
Doom Blade
Consuming Vapors
Into the Roil
Inquisition of Kozilek
Jace’s Ingenuity

Countermagic (10)
Mana Leak
Stoic Rebuttal
Mindbreak Trap

PWS (6)
Jace Beleren
Jace, the Mind Sculptor
Sorin Markov

Creatures (3)
Grave Titan
Sphinx of Jwar Isle
Sideboard: (15)
Spell Pierce
Ratchet Bomb
Consume the Meek

I wanted some more control, and counters, but not to lose focus on aggro decks.


What Can We Learn


What Can We Learn

Post by Myclune » Thu Oct 28, 2010 3:03 pm

What can we learn from the new post rotation metagame? What has the demise of Jund and the best white removal in a long while ( Path to Exile and Oblivion Ring ) allowed to happen ? Can we compare this new rotation to the old one ( when 5 Color Control and Faeries rotated out ) in a relevant way ? And in an opposite side of the loss, how will Scars of Mirrodin shape the new Standard ?

Let’s try to answer these questions one by one.
