    Wrench-Rigger was the new premium 1-drop I mentioned coming across in the first round, btw.


    For adversaries that would distinguish between ben-zayb's deck and the one I ended up submitting, I judged untargeted discard like b_jonas's Liliana's Specter deck from last round to be most likely. In that case, the Cheese can't be cast but the Maniac deck can discard Street Wraith and win on its second turn's draw step. Going the other way is targeted creature hate, but it needed to be either proactive (e.g. Despise) or Split Second (e.g. Sudden Shock) or else the Wraith would get cycled in response.

    Interesting. I specifically thought that Black Lotus, Black Lotus, Barren Glory wouldn't work well. (That was for round 2, but I still thought the same for round 3.) I was wrong.

    And I did think that there'd be more disruption, which is why I built a deck that works well against Force of Will and Pyrokinesis. But now nobody played either of those cards. Dismember is the closest thing to that. I am satisfied that my deck still worked so well despite that.

    Ooh! Bucky found a way to make Laboratory Maniac work: the Street Wraith lets him draw a card early without spending mana. That's beautiful.

    I'll have to think through some of those matches later, because right now I don't understand how some of them work.

    TBH, it wasn't a good round to play either. A basic Force of Will (+Ch-Forge) deck would go 4-2-5 for 28 points; Pyrokinesis builds vary more but, barring something clever, I think they top out at 6-5.

    That's one of the problems with Force of Will decks. It's great against a narrow range but the meta has to be very favorable to it to win and that's trickier the more players there are. Even moreso with lotuses gone.

    Thank goodness, the Lotuses are gone. And it looks like Lab Maniac as well.

    Looks like everyone played around disruption instead of playing disruption. At least the lotuses and labmen are gone now.
    I find it funny that my deck lost to everyone who did better than me and won over everyone who did worse.

    Wait. Does Korith's deck actually do anything? I'm not seeing a way to have a Bloodghast in the bin and Aqueduct in hand.

    I included a note on that in my deck submission actually.

    T1 Bazaar
    T2 Aqueduct, with bounce trigger on the stack activate Bazaar, then resolve trigger bouncing Aqueduct.
    T3+ Keep bringing back Bloodghast by playing/bouncing Aqueduct

    Seems that didn't work out for me too well though.

    The updated ban list and puns are a bit late but here they are:

    Gold: ben-zayb, Bucky
    What's this new-fangled contraption: Gauntlet
    Don't judge the squirrel: b_jonas
    Overseeing the city: Ninjaman
    I think people anticipated this: Eurus
    The suspense isn't killing me this time: Fable Wright
    Graceful in defeat: unavenger
    Paper tiger: Quiddle
    Could in fact be touched: personification
    Didn't haggle well: Korith

    Ban list:
    Spoiler: Ban list: Round 4
    Show

    Land: Empty

    Artifact: Blacker Lotus, Black Lotus

    White: Chancellor of the Annex, The Cheese Stands Alone

    Blue: Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Laboratory Maniac

    Black: Street Wraith

    Green: Crashing Footfalls

    Red: Empty

    Gold: Empty


    I've got some already but if you haven't submitted them already, submit your decks for Round 4. Judging will be sometime this weekend.

    Also, what are people's opinions regarding banning a specific card just for a special round? Thinking in terms of Karakas for a commander round, more because it largely invalidates the difference of the special round just being there.

    Finally, given I was looking to switch out for judging after 5 rounds, is anyone interested in judging rounds 6-10? Or further?

    I'm cool with the challenge specifying that you can't use a specific card, as long as you don't overdo it.

    For the normal rounds, are conspiracies legal?

    Yeah, my thoughts are along the lines of the card needing to break the point of the special round and be reasonably obvious (someone having played it in a normal round counts as people would be aware). Karakas is the obvious one in a round where the difference is a legendary creature as commander (allowing planeswalkers like brawl might help) and the only other one I'd even consider is pithing needle in a planeswalker round but at least that can force discarded easier, can be countered and doesn't also provide mana.

    I think for conspiracies, I said no but they're on the list for special rounds and it's one of the main ones I'm looking at for R5.

    And now for the round 4 results. Card links should be up in the morning

    Bucky: Wrench-rigger, Blackmail, Badlands, Contraption: Gnomeball Machine
    Eurus: Plains, Inkmoth nexus, Consecrate land
    ben-zayb: Maze of Ith, Wrench-Rigger, Cavern of Souls, Contraption: Rapid Prototyper
    Ninjaman: Mishra's factory, Mishra's factory, Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale
    Fable Wright: Rushwood grove, Channel, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
    b_jonas: Irrigation ditch, Judge's Familiar, Form of the Squirrel
    Quiddle: Pendelhaven, Meekstone, Utopia Mycon
    Gauntlet: City of Traitors, Mana Crypt, Karn, the Great Creator, Sideboard: The Rack, Liquimetal coating, Lodestone Golem


    X G B bz FW N bj E Q
    Gauntlet X WL WW WW WW WW WW WW 39
    Bucky WL X WL WW WW WW WW WW 36
    ben-zayb LL WL X DD DD DD WW WW 21
    Fable Wright LL LL DD X WW DD WW DD 18
    Ninjaman LL LL DD LL X WW DL WW 15
    b_jonas LL LL DD DD LL X DD WW 12
    Eurus LL LL LL LL WD DD X WW 12
    Quiddle LL LL LL DD LL LL LL X 2


    Given how much racing with multiple tokens there was, I expect there to be a couple of mistakes but I don't think anything beats Gauntlet. Karn on it's own defeats contraption based strategies, mixed with liquisteel gives it land destruction, the rack gets around damage prevention methods and lodestone works a bit as disruption but more a threat to make them play something so they're vulnerable to rack. And Karn gets rid of the crypt when it's no longer needed. Being able to access your entire sideboard in one game is a big deal.

    Not sure how this special round will go but it will be Commander. Karakas is banned for this round.

    For those unfamiliar, you select a legendary creature (or a planeswalker that says it can be used as commander) as your commander (not included in your three cards) that starts in your command zone and can be cast from there. If your commander would go to the graveyard or be exiled, you may instead send it to the command zone. Each time it is cast from the command zone you must pay an additional 2 mana for each time it has been cast from the command zone previously. You start with 40 life but you also lose if your enemy's commander does 21 combat damage to you over the game.

    Your deck can only have one copy of each card and can only contain cards with colour identities of your commander. For example, if Chromium the Mutable was your commander, Path to Exile is legal, Mox Pearl is legal but Mox Emerald is not as the text contains a green mana symbol which is not part of Chromiums colour identity.

    If someone sends a deck without a commander, I'll add a commander containing the colour identities but that they cant actually play.

    Also, still looking to see who might be interested in running the next set of 5 rounds.

    Interesting decks this turn too.

    TiaC: you dropped out after one game. Is everything all right?

    Tom the Mime: can you be clear on the deck construction rules for round 5? How many cards can we have in our deck? Three including the commander (or partner commanders)? How many cards can our sideboard have if we use a wish effect?

    Update. Decks of round 4, with cards linked to Scryfall. (Tom the Mime: do you prefer Gatherer links instead? I can post those instead the next time if you wish.)
    Bucky: Wrench-Rigger, Blackmail, Badlands; contraption deck: Gnomeball Machine.
    Eurus: Plains, Inkmoth Nexus, Consecrate Land.
    ben-zayb: Maze of Ith, Wrench-Rigger, Cavern of Souls; contraption deck: Rapid Prototyper.
    Ninjaman: Mishra's Factory, Mishra's Factory, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale.
    Fable Wright: Rushwood Grove, Channel, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger.
    b_jonas: Irrigation Ditch, Judge's Familiar, Form of the Squirrel.
    Quiddle: Pendelhaven, Meekstone, Utopia Mycon.
    Gauntlet: City of Traitors, Mana Crypt, Karn, the Great Creator; sideboard: The Rack, Liquimetal Coating, Lodestone Golem.

    The card that's banned the next turn is Karakas, and the spy that somehow took over the diagonal of the results table is X.

    4 cards - 3 main deck plus your commander. Or 2 main deck and partnered commanders. I don't think partnered commanders would make much difference even if it didn't take up a slot given they're probably a bit underwhelming for the issues gettimg them out in 3cb.

    Derp. I forgot that people can choose not to play into Ulamog. This is what I get for not using the Infinite Gyre.

    I won't judge, but I can host the next 5 or 10 rounds if you trust me enough for that. Hosting would mean that I collect decks that people send me in private message, then reveal the decks for the round in the thread soon after they're frozen. Someone else would then have to do the judging. I'd also announce the time when each round will be frozen. I don't submit a deck in rounds that I host.

    The ban list is wrong. Gauntlet's winning deck in round 4 has Mana Crypt, so that should be on the ban list, whereas Mana Vault is not yet banned.

    I'm confident that between the various contestants we can get the judging part done without issues. Gives us something else to help keep the thread active, too.

    I agree with just posting the decks and let us all work it out together. I feel like there might be a way to do this where no one has to skip a round.
    If not then we can always just say that the winner has to sit it out.

    We talked about this in the previous thread. There are three ways to manage the submitted decks, and I recommend the current system with a host.
    • There's a host who collects threads and publishes them at the freeze, and the host doesn't play in those rounds. I wouldn't mind to skip the next five or ten rounds, so I can serve as the host. I already said that this game is more interesting when we have a larger ban list, so it won't be interesting to me in the next ten rounds yet, and being a host, I can pressure the rounds to happen slightly faster. Note though that the host can cheat by altering or dropping decks, so you should only choose me as a host if you trust me enough that I won't cheat.
    • There's a host who collects threads and publishes them at the freeze, the host doesn't read the decks and may participate. This is possible with some technological help. There are two drawbacks to this further from the previous model. Tom the Mime evaluates the submitted decks to catch stupid mistakes ("If your deck contains banned cards or relies on some rules misconception" in the rules), and notifies the submitter enough in time for this. He already caught two stupid errors for me in the rerun. If the host can't read the decks, then most such mistakes won't be caught (I could still catch banned cards of course). The second problem is that you have to trust the host even more, for now they can also cheat by secretly reading the submitted decks and choosing a winning deck for themself.
    • The third method is that each participates posts twice: first any time before the freeze to secretly commit to a deck by submitting a salted cryptographic checksum of the deck, then after the freeze to reveal their deck. This would seriously slow down the rounds, which is why I'm very much against it.

    Cheating by altering or dropping decks seems pretty difficult, given that the people submitting would probably notice if one that they sent was altered. Also, if the host isn't participating, there isn't much incentive to change anything anyway.

    Not really, as people know what decks they submitted.
