What if cards are in two different legality printings, both in Modern sets. I.E. Loxodon Warhammer is uncommon in MRD, but rare in 9th/10th. Does that make it legal for play in Silverblack?

As long as it is common or uncommon in a Modern format set, it is legal. Warhammer is legal because it's uncommon in MRD.

Hi.

I am interested in playing this format. I was just wondering how frequently you guys get to play matches and how many players you have?

Thanks 
The event runs every week. 4 rounds of swiss so everyone gets to play 4 matches (excluding byes) each event.

We average around 20 players, usually at least 16 with our high this season being 34.


Next event is tonight!  
Thx, sounds good. Unfortunatly im from England and so won't be able to make the 8:00 time. But i wil keep checking back to see if there are any other ones earlier

Next event later today!
Ok, it seems I'm going to be unexpectedly stuck at work and will not make it home in time.

If anyone wants to host just post here and i'll update you as host in gatherling.

If not and anyone sees dabil online, you can ask him if he would like to get it started.
I'll do it if no one else is available.

If you're on MTGO check out the Free Events via PDCMagic and Gatherling.

Other games you should try:
DC Universe Online - action-based MMO.  Free to play.  Surprisingly well-designed combat and classes.

Planetside 2 - Free to play MMO-meets-FPS and the first shooter I've liked in ages.
Simunomics - Free-to-play economy simulation game.

do you have an account at www.gatherling.com?
Hey I'm fairly new to magic but I would like to participate if possible. It's 5:40pm my time but you are posting at 3:30 so I assume your 8:00 oclock is my 10:00 oclock?  I want to make sure I don't miss out on the fun. Also would you mind elaborating on what modern is?   I just got my online card pack a few days ago so I doubt my deck will be competitive but it's free and I think I will learn more in a competitive environment. 

Thanks in advance for the info, hope to see you guys there! 
its almost 7pm here, so the event would start in just over an hour.

do you have an account at www.gatherling.com?


I've used it as a player but haven't hosted from there before.

Hmm... is dabil online? He can probably help set you up, since I seem to be unable to set you as host.


If Dabil was on I'd just tell him to host in the first place.  :p

stupid question: you are or or not the same person as Amar?

Yes.  Oh I guess I took the "Amar on MTGO" out of my sig.  I used to clarify that.



sadisteck is PMing Dabil via PK, hopefully for a resolution.

yell at everyone until they have a deck posted, press start once they do.
post the pairings that appear on the matches tab thing
yell at people to enter results, it auto-pairs the next round.
repeat.
Dang, you're an hour ahead of me haha, oh well guess I will catch the next one. MAybe I missed it but if I didn't would you mind posting the time GMT or something on the first page from now on so I can judge what time I should be ready and online by?  Thanks and hope you guys have fun, see you in the future!
I'm probably not going to make it home before the end of the event. I will mostly likely get home around 10:50pm.

If people want to stick around for prizes I will hop on and hand them out, otherwise I will either catch people on the weekend or at next weeks event.

Not this week, but the following week (Oct 17th) will be an alternate event week.
If you have any requests feel free to let me know in game, pm here, or post here. 
Events tonight!
Wednesday, Oct 17th Alternate Format - SilverBlack Rainbow Stairwell

Deck construction rules:

All decks must be exactly 61 cards.

36 Spells:
1 card of each converted mana cost 1 through 6 for each color and artifacts.
So you should have one 1cc red spell, one 2cc red spell... up to one 6cc red spell. Then the same for the rest of the colors and artifacts.

No gold cards, no multi-color hybrid cards, and no split cards. No spells with X in the casting cost.
Extra costs/alternate costs are fine, only the CMC in the upper right matters. So Jilt is a legal 2cc blue card and lingering souls is a legal 3cc white card.
For the few single color hybrid cards, the cmc is the highest amount per symbol. So for flame javelin (2/R)(2/R)(2/R) that would be 2|2|2 for a total cmc of 6. Thus using the red 6cc slot. You cannot use it for your red 3cc slot. 
 
25 lands: 4 of each basic land + 1 cycle from the following list:
(you must use 1 of each land in the cycle you choose)
Invasion tap lands (coastal tower, urborg volcano, elfhame palace, salt marsh, shivan oasis)
Vivid lands (vivid grove, vivid marsh, vivid meadow, vivid crag, vivid creek)
Tri-lands (savage lands, jungle shrine, arcane sanctum, crumbling necropolils, seaside citadel)
Refuges (kazandu refuge, graypelt refuge, akoum refuge, jwar isle refuge, serjiri refuge)
Snow Duals (arctic flats, frost marsh, boreal shelf, highland weald, tresshorn sinks)
Snow-Covered basics (you are only allowed 1 of each, not 5 of each)
5th set of basic lands
   

Sideboard:
No sideboards are allowed.
 
---------------------

Commons and uncommons only. If a common or uncommon printing exists online, it is legal.

does flame javelin count as 3 RRR, or total CMC of 6?
I am Red/White
I am Red/White
Take The Magic Dual Colour Test - Beta today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.
I'm both chaotic and orderly. I value my own principles, and am willing to go to extreme lengths to enforce them, often trampling on the very same principles in the process. At best, I'm heroic and principled; at worst, I'm hypocritical and disorderly.
according to gatherer, its cmc is 6. So it would count for the 6cc slot.
