Well, this seemed to be the round for consistency. There were basically Treetop-Village-third card decks and various combinations of Chimeric Idol and Wheel of torture. The Village decks came out on top, with the most effective weapons being Naturalize and Pernicious deed. The few stragglers who didn’t use Treetop village or Chimeric Idol tended to do worse, with the exception of GRAH, who beat out the Workshop-Idol-Idol decks.

1. BweeBwee – Treetop Village, Golgari Rotfarm, Pernicious Deed
Real Estate is Tech
I remember GRAH using this deck in a different round, I dunno whether it was the other creature-less one, but it seemed to be appropriate for this round. It was.

2. GRAH – Mercadian Bazaar, Form of the Dragon, Maze of Ith
A Man With a Plan
Unfortunately, most people had two threats, more than the maze could handle, so this didn’t do as well as it would’ve maybe in a different round.

3. Gi Baja - Rushwood Grove, Chatter of the Squirrel, Sword of Light and Shadow
there is some crack in here
This was much too slow for too little of an effect. By the time you could get a squirrel equipped with a SoLS, you were probably dead.

4. _Metallica_ - Chimeric Idol, Chimeric Idol, Mishra’s Workshop
American Idol sucks!
Double idol was worse than Idol-Wheel, and neither was spectacular, because of the abundance of Treetop village decks.

5. R4nd0m –Treetop Village, Eladamri’s Vineyard, Naturalize
Congrats. Village-Vineyard was highly effective and naturalize took care of any annoying idols or wheels.

6. Ggerg – Chimeric Idol, Wheel of Torture, Mishra’s Workshop the rabbits
This was better than double idol, but like I said before, it still wasn’t good because it lost to Village-Vineyard-Stuff mostly.

7. Colossus – Wheel of Torture, Wheel of Torture, Mishra’s Workshop
Mishra’s Torture
This was doomed to fail from the beginning. It was a mise deck, so the opponent could just sit back and do nothing and your best result was a 2-2. Surprisingly enough, even with your mise deck, you did better than Gi Baja and SaumZ.

8. Yeoman - Treetop Village, Eladamri’s Vineyard, Wheel of Torture
Nicking GRAH’s idea
This was one of the better Village-Vineyard variants, but an answer for a third card proved to be a bit better than a third threat. Still did quite well with its potential for 8 damage a turn.

9. Naphtali – Treetop Village, Eladamri’s Vineyard, Naturalize
See deck 5.

10. Roach_666 – Mishra’s Workshop, Chimeric Idol Chimeric Idol
I beat trix
See deck 4.

11. Fold – Eladamri’s Vineyard, Ark of Blight, Treetop Village
Floods A Coming
Ark was not as good as naturalize or wheel, but Village-Vineyard was enough to get you reasonably close to the top

12. SaumZ – Bayou, Oxidize, Sarcomancy
b/g control
This just did crappily. Sarcomancy was smaller than everything and oxidize wasn’t enough to nullify all of the opponent’s threats.


1. R4nd0m - AddRandomComment.dec (5) 51
Naphtali – TEN (9) 51
3. BweeBwee – Real Estate is Tech (1) 46
4. Yeoman - Nicking GRAH’s idea (Cool 43
5. Fold – Floods A Coming (11) 39
6. Ggerg - …save the rabbits (6) 37
7. GRAH – A Man With a Plan (2) 32
8. _Metallica_ - American Idol sucks! (4) 25
Roach_666 – I beat trix (10) 25
10. Colossus – Mishra’s Torture (7) 11
11. Gi Baja – there is some crack in here (2) 4
SaumZ – b/g control (12) 4

Next round will be a normal round, because I don't have GRAH's store of special rounds with me. If he comes back within a day or two, maybe he'll change the round. For now, Pm entries to me.

What is 3cb?

3-Card Blind (3CB) is a very unique game. The rules are as follows

Your deck is composed of 3 cards, all of which start in your hand.
You have no library (technically, the library exists, but starts at 0 cards) and no sideboard (Wishes fetch nothing).
Random effects always go in your opponent's favour.
You can see your opponent's hand, so you can always make the best possible play.
You don't lose as a result of not being able to draw a card.
You will play each opponent twice, once going first, once going second.
For each win, you score 3.
For each draw, you score 1.
For each loss, you get nothing.

To make an entry, PM your deck to Bweebwee in the following format:

Subject: 3cb Tournament Entry or 3cb Tournament Revision
Deck Name
Card #1
Card #2
Card #3

(For those who don't know, you don't actually play, you just send the decks and, because of the way the rules work, it's easy for me to compute results.)

BweeBwee's deck beats Villiage, Vineyard Naturalize. With Vineyard on the play, this happens:
1: Village
2: Village
1: Vineyard
2: Farm burn to 18
1: Attack for 3 down to 15
2: Village play deed sac for 1
1: Nothing
2: Attack and so on

No, Village comes into play tapped, and Deed costs 3 to play and an additional 1 to activate for 1, so I can't play deed before they can naturalize it. The villages then sit and stare at each other.
