Forum Info and Thread Title Guidelines

1 post / 0 new
This forum is for the discussion of tournament-caliber decks for play in MTGO-only formats and tournament issues for MTGO formats (e.g. Banned & Restricted discussions).

If you want to talk about a deck for a core format (standard, extended, block), please use the paper forums.

If you want to build a deck to play for fun, please use the MTGO Formats — Recreational Forum for a less harsh critique.

Because this forum will be serving several different formats, we ask that everyone use the following format for their thread titles:

FORMAT: Deckname

For consistency, please use the following abbreviations for the format:

CLAS: Classic
LGCY: Legacy
CMDR: Commander
100S: 100-card Singleton
PAUP: Pauper
LTRB: Legacy Tribal
STRB: Standard Tribal
PRIS: Prismatic
SING: Singleton
KLDS: Kaleidoscope
SVAN: Standard Vanguard
EVAN: Extended Vanguard
CVAN: Classic Vanguard

Example thread names:

CLAS: RG Stompy
PAUP: RW Weenie
CMDR: Emrakul should be banned

Any thread titles that do not meet these guidelines may be changed to do so.

If you post a deck here, please remember you are *requesting* people to pick apart your deck and provide constructive advice. Keep an open mind and don't be defensive. If you critique a deck, be constructive and obey Wheaton's Law.

I'm trying to make my official VCL posts in purple.

You posted saying my thread was moved/locked but nothing happened.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.

Dual means two. A duel is a battle between two people. Lands that make two colors of mana are dual lands. A normal Magic battle is a duel.

TT is for off-topic discussion, not no-topic discussion." -WizO_Kwai_Chang "Stop that! If you're not careful, rational thinking may catch on!" -Sax "... the only word i see that fits is incompitant." -Mr44 (sic) "You know a thread is gonna be locked when it gets to the hexadecimal stage." -Gathion "It's a good gig" - Gleemax "I tell people often, if you guys want to rant, you've certainly got the right to (provided you obey CoC/ToS stuff), and I don't even really blame you. But if you see something you think needs changing a well thought-out, constructive post does more to make that happen." - Worth Wollpert
