I'd say if you want to stop combo go with this rule of 3 in a given turn:

3 recurs of the same card from a graveyard - doesn't matter how, just that its the same card recurring
3 triggered or activated abilities that bounce off eachother - like exquisite blood/sanguine bond or kiki-jiki/pestermite
3 casts of the same spell - forking doesn't count, and this includes all spells, not just instants and sorceries

and probably throw in the general sentiment that if it could go infinite, each part of the combo can only be used 3 times.
I can see your point, I'll have to talk it over with the other organizers to see if we want to change it.

We are a little over a week away from the event! Anyone doing any play testing of their decks?

The question came up about mulligans...  

This event will follow the normal Paris Mulligan rule - if you don't like your hand you may reshuffle it into your library and draw one less card.  

This will reduce combo hunting, and require decks to have proper ratios of card types.

Well, we had a great turnout, 26+ people showed for the event. 

Most played General was Zur the Enchanter 

Winning was Geist of Saint Traft 

There were a few hiccups but overall it was a good event!
