As most of you know, an illegal deck won the trial this morning, and that brought something to my attention which I feel ML should address. The problem as I see it lies within these 4 casual formats.

MYOS - Make a "t2" deck from any 2 expansions and 1 core set
BYOS - Bring any deck which was ever legal in t2
Block Party - Bring any deck that was ever legal in a Block format
BYOB - Make a "Block" deck from 1 first expansion set, 1 second set, and 1 third set.

You notice that BYOS and BYOB look very similar, but are actually opposites. Build and Bring both start with the letter "B", making such anagrams a bit confusing.

I suggest that the names of these formats could be clarified and that a link to the appropriate "Other Format" description be linked when these casual trials are scheduled. Often, a person will ask in the chatroom and get a link to the appropriate format description, but this is uncertain and slipshod. A link either in the announcements or in the Schedule itself would be much easier for anyone to access.

I agree with xJudicatorx and Jacois. The whole "other" formats thing being supported by magic-league is under review. Expect a clarification/change to January 1st.

The "BYOS" is named BYOT2 exactly to avoid that confusion.

BYOT2 is just as bad as BYOS because there is still the confusion over whether "B" means "bring" or "build".
