Steam 1v1 Tournament #5

Hello Planeswalkers! With minddrifter's Steam tournament heading towards its later rounds I thought I'd open up submissions for another 1v1 Tournament. This will be a fairly straightforward Single Elimination tourney. Pick your favorite decks and enter! We won't start until Sunday morning so players using the new DLC decks will have some time to unlock cards. Here are the details:



  • Join The Planeswalking Dead Steam group.

  • Post here with your Steam username, plus TWO decks you'd like to use.

  • We'll begin the morning of Sunday, December 9th.

  • This will be a Single Elimination event.

  • Match victory will be decided by winning 2 out of 3 games.

  • You may use either of your two selected decks during games. 

  • Deck switching is allowed at any time between games, even in the middle of a match

  • Deck editing is also allowed at any time between games, same as above.



You are responsible for tracking down your opponent over Steam (the Steam group should help with that). If you're unable to do so, post in this thread to set up a match time. If an opponent doesn't respond to your post within 72 hours, they concede the match.

Check back in this thread for the list of participants and a tournament bracket. 


Please keep in mind that the majority of players in this forum are either in the US or between GMT-8 and GMT-5 time zones. If that presents any inherent issue due to your location, please don't sign up unless you're willing to compensate for the time difference.

I'm both selfish and rational. I'm scheming, secretive and manipulative; I use knowledge as a tool for personal gain, and in turn obtaining more knowledge. At best, I am mysterious and stealthy; at worst, I am distrustful and opportunistic.

Morning what time zone?

Sean is PST (GMT-8, I think), so probably then.

Count me in.

Yes, I'm in GMT-8, but whenever you can get together with your partner will be fine. Since this is a Single Elimination event, there's no need to be strict as long as everybody plays within a reasonable amount of time. Please don't sign up if you suspect that will be an issue.

Actually morning in PST is perfect for Europe, it will be late evening, or so. 


Will post information tomorrow, after trying out new decks.      
I have quite a bit of free time and would be interested in trying something like this, so why not?

I had a change of heart since things hadn't started yet, and changed my decks.  Edited my original post back up there a few.
When I see "1v1 Steam Tournament" I'm in, lol.  I'm happy you enjoyed my tournament as well Sean!  I won't be around starting mid-January as I have to move (probably driving from Northern California to Southern Florida) and may not be back for a while depending on how fast I can get internet running in my new place.  If you think the tournament might last til then, you can reject my request to enter and I will fully understand.

That being said....I choose....Exalted Dead and Grim Procession.  Black and White or Bust!

Edit:  Choosing 2 decks not used in tournament if I can:   Collective Might and Sky and Scale.  Green...Blue and White or Bust?  lol

You are both rational and emotional. You value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, you're innovative and intuitive. At worst, you're scattered and unpredictable.
All these tournaments make me want to buy the game again but on steam. The community is so active on steam where as the xbox community is starting to dry up a bit

Sean, I don't know what to do other than quote you.  I am unable to send any emails through the Wizards site to anyone (let alone you or I would have done so about this)  because it says I haven't invited anyone to become a member of this community.  Can you help me?

That's strange. I'll look into it and see if anyone knows why that would happen.

Thank you!   

Edit:  If you can send me a message rather than posting in here if you're able to get it fixed or what I can do, I am able to read emails; just not send any.

I expect I'll be making the initial player list and bracket tomorrow. Just a heads up that the sooner you sign up, the easier it will be for me to organize the tourney and the smoother things will go. I'm also excited to see so many people signing up with the newer decks. Considering everyone's probably less familiar with them than others, that's a bold move :D

I don't think it's THAT bold.  most of the new-deck sign ups are Grim Procession, and that's a very very strong deck.

No sure what to say to that, maybe comment of the year?

Deck 1: Grinning Malice. *edit, because no one listed this deck so far, if it's alright?
Deck 2: Berserker Rage.

I think people are over reacting on both how good GP is and how "bad" BR is.  I'm not going to say GP isn't good but it certainly isn't any better than any other good deck.  BR seems to be getting the AoW treatment, but as with AoW...I am finding it to be much better than the naysayers gripe about.

I'm certainly not one of the people lumping BR in the bad category.  A tad boring.  A pain to unlock.  But solid.  But GP is right up there with the other smashy decks (most of which include black.  Why can't RL black decks be this good?)
