In Make Your Own Standard you are allowed to pick two blocks and one core set. You build a deck out of those sets. The format uses Block & Legacy banlists, though that's subject to possible change in the future.

Fun to have MYOS for a change. Grats to Caith for the win; lost to silver in semis when failing to hit 4th land for Armageddon for 3 turns straight and mulling to 5 G2. Meh.

Meta Breakdown:

5 UW Control [4-1 (IA/ZEN/M11), 2-1 (IA/ZEN/M11), 2-1 (IA/ONS/M11), 0-1 (MIR/ZEN/5E), 0-1 (TSP/SOM/6E)]

Hmmm. So in MYOS, Lorwyn and Shadowmoor were treated in the same block while in BYOB they were treated separately. Makes sense.

by moscowdemon on 2011-07-10 20:07 CET

silverbullet, i think this is either a flaw that doesnt matter as the formats arent played enough, or its been discussed and there is good reasoning.
also it may be because the way rotation works. like when lorwyn rotated, shadowmoor and eventide did too. just my thoughts.

by silverbullet on 2011-07-10 20:22 CET

I'm so adding Zuran Spellcasters in my sb for next time. Damn Fae :D

by Eldariel on 2011-07-10 20:24 CET

Silverbullet: Basically, BYOB is the anomaly. MYOS (and basically all block-based formats) use whatever constructions the blocks were under in Standard. For example, RoE+Zen and Lrw+Shm are treated as one block for Standard so they're one block for MYOS.

In BYOB, however, the format is based around the number of sets (specifically, you pick 3) so Lorwyn can't be treated normally because it's 4 sets unlike every other block in the game. So it's broken into 2 blocks like the printing goes, in order to make it fit the rules of the format.

by aquiles86 on 2011-07-10 20:43 CET

4th edition used to be legal, right? Why is it not allowed anymore?

by Eldariel on 2011-07-10 21:03 CET

It's never been legal though there's been talk of legalizing it in lieu of remaking the banlist (which is obviously antiquated and doesn't really serve the needs of the format).

by cloysterd on 2011-07-10 21:35 CET

So another allegedly "fun" format won by the least fun deck in recent memory. Yay?

by Eldariel on 2011-07-10 22:17 CET

The metagame is kinda stupid which is making Faeries a bit too good. The power of combo basically makes straight aggro (outside something answer-laden like WW) pretty unplayable and that in turn makes control-decks lack their natural predator.

Though I don't know why you find it all that unfun; it's at least interactive and eminently beatable. And unlike draw-go or something, you get to resolve spells occasionally.

Kinda sad i had to drop - was 2-0 currently with NO bant. Had a good sideboard plan aginst fae - city of solitude!

by jfc on 2011-07-11 14:52 CET

lol, NO Bant with 2 progie + archangel nice.. :/ also nice bitterblossom tokens vs city of solitude

by Nonprophet on 2011-07-11 16:39 CET

Hey, I played dredge and went 1-0.

by Eldariel on 2011-07-11 19:37 CET

Huh. Can't edit posts for some reason, but you're right; the Ichorid should be 1-0, not 1-1.

by Conkisstador on 2011-07-11 22:48 CET

City of Solitutde and Grand Abolisher to very little against fae. You're down a card to maybe prevent an effect.

Can someone tell me how that ANTeachings deck wins? Is it just get a million cards and win with free spells + grace?
I don't see how conflagrate gets in the yard to abuse the 30 card hand.

by coolcreep on 2011-07-11 23:01 CET


RFG simian spirit guide x3, cast conflagrate for x=0, flashback for x=their life total. Easy.

by Tigersblood on 2011-07-12 00:48 CET

All I know is silverbullet is the man. ahaha that's my boy right there.

by Burton911 on 2011-07-12 07:21 CET

@Eldarial: you have to replace the ' with another kind of upper punctuation mark like ´ or ` since the apostroph seems to be a special character in the sql syntax :)
