June 26 mtgoverextended.com Master tournament

by Kaesh on 2011-06-20 00:07 CET
We are proud to announce that on the nearest Sunday, at the usual master time (noon EST) we will host a tournament sponsored by mtgoverextended.com.
This is a great opportunity to connect the communities of Magic-League and mtgoverextended.com.
The tournament will be preceded by a saturday trial, so you can test your decks. All trial tournaments this week will give byes to the master, just like for a regular master.
The format for the trial and master will be OverExtended - a format known at magic-league as ExtendedPlus, except without Masques Block but with a banlist, as provided there: http://mtgoverextended.com/?page_id=53

Explore mtgoverextended.com and get ready for the tourneys!

What is the prize structure for this Master? Site just says "$50" at the moment.

Good job on getting that deal.

I thought that format was dead... why not Modern instead?

he beat the hell out of the dead horse by banning 3 cards for dredge. it seems like all he did to the format was make it his personal idea and ban all combo.

Crap banlist.

It's not like ExtendedPlus, cause it doesn't have Masques block.

lol @ "Banlist"

Whoever made this up just banned the crap out of dredge and left affinity untouched.
And banning Minds Desire makes me sad :(
Oh and of course Elves with GSZ is fair as well, compared to the irrational Dredge fear.

But i guess they pay so its their rules

the ban for affinty was disciple. tho that still doesnt stop them. i feel like it was just him wanting to ban what he didnt like. mind's desire could be a restricted card if you wanted as that would stop the immense combo and make it harder at times. he banned way way way too much dredge stuff for no reason and im not even a dredge player. but elves is the way im going if i play it.

farseer: i figured out 50$ is not enough to split
sirkozi: thanks, i changed it
burton: exactly

Hey everyone! Gavin here.

I'd be happy to answer any questions you guys have.

As for the dredge bannings, I completely agree that they were overboard. I've already announced that 1-2 of the cards will be banned at the next banned and restricted update.

Cards are not restricted in non-Vintage formats, so that wasn't really an option with Desire.

The format has been played pretty extensively, and nothing - including Elves, Affinity, etc - has proved dominant after 3 weeks of 50+ people events. Beatdown, control, and combo are all doing well. You can find all of the decklists on the site if you'd like.

If overextened.com is sponsoring it, does that mean we actually get our prize for winning? ;) I still havent gotten mine for t2ing a master back in November

by straca3 on 2011-06-22 18:10 CET

Same for me el_focker, also hope now they will pay

by TacoMaster on 2011-06-23 01:17 CET

Using anything designed by Gavin Verhey is a horrible play. This format has the most moronic banned list I've ever seen!

by TacoMaster on 2011-06-23 01:19 CET

Somehow... Skullclamp is banned... 9500 Dredge Cards are banned... But everything in Ravager is perfectly fine and balanced. Makes sense.

no masques? LOL.
