This thread is for discussion of this week's The Week That Was, which goes live Friday morning on magicthegathering.com.

LSV is the man!
Zoo is a deck. Willing to bet Pat Cox moneys.
If LSV is banned, then I dont wanna play.  LOL  I probably wouldnt be able to decide between Paulo or Chapin. 
The more I read about the Jon Finkel thing, the funnier it gets.

Also:  probably should be investing in his hedge fund.
Let me get this straight...a former Playboy Playmate of the Year just offered Jon Finkel a date?  If he doesn't take her up on it, I may have to personally drive up to NYC and punch him on general principles.

So betting on the outcome of participants at an event is allowed by the DCI now? That's basically what this fantasy player draft is.

Why not do an auction? Give each drafter 100 points (dollars) and let them bid on 4 players. If anyone wants to use 97 points on LSV (having to save 1 for each of the other 3 players), so be it. Or, alternatively, if someone wants to bid 100 on LSV and take no other players, why not? I'd rate that a poor strategy, and so no banning is necessary.
