[ALTERNATE STANDARD] A6x's 2nd Annual Alt-Std Tourney

Welcome all to the second ever Alt-Standard tournament of the official WotC forums. Alternate Standard is the name of a new format where we take three blocks (or two blocks and a core set, like standard) and we build decks legal in those blocks! For example, Kami-Rav 9th or one that hasn't existed like Urza-Alara-8th!

The sets legal for this tournament will be:

Shadowmoor
Onslaught
Guildpact
Fifth Dawn
Apocalypse
Dissension
9th Edition

A few things you may need to know

1.) The format will be single-elim, and I will take the first 64 people that sign up/until we run out of players.
2.) Cards that were banned in their respective standards are also banned in alternate standard, and cards banned in Legacy are banned as well.
3.) Games will be played via Magic Workstation
4.) I'll post the bracket as soon as we get 64 people/we run out of players, and you will have a week to finish your matches. If I don't have a winner within that time, I'll choose one by coinflip.
5.) The winner will get to choose the format for the next tournament, are enshrined in the Alt-Standard winner's club, and they will get a bye at each subsequent tournament.

So you have about a week to prepare your decks, brush up on your Magic History and find new card combinations, synergies and decks that have never existed before on a competitive level. Good luck!

Alt-Standard Winner's Club

1.) Every_Day won the INV-RAV-TSP format with his Niv-Mizzet Teachings combo deck. (16 players)
So, you're using 6 total sets rather than 2 blocks, plus 9th, then? Cause if we had Rav block plus Shadowmoore block we could have a ton of fun. A ludicrous amount, to be preceise.

I would like to join this.

Her'es a question though, how are we going to possibly be able to test out our decks before the touny begins, or are we not supposed to test them out?
Lol, avenged confident that you can get 64 :P?? Anyway, I'm in, obviously.

If not, then when we will just operate with byes and such.
Im in, and online now if anyone wants to test

But you were deceived.

Yeah, 64 is way too much. I'm not even sure you are going to fill 32.

IIRC I had about forty players interested for the last one.
im in.
I'm in. ^_^
Well, it'd be even more absoforeakinglutely rediculous with Eventide, but... it still looks like there's an engine or two that could be tremendous fun.

Tentatively In.

Being able to play at a time that works for others may be a bit dodgy, but with VeJi's thing ending I should be able to handle it. This could be fun.

Second Annual? I know the last match took awhile to happen, but I didn't realize it took that long.

In, obviously.
Umm, so I don't really frequent these forums any more, but I do blog for my website Greatplay.net.
I already have such an awesome idea for an engine in this deck, 9th > 10th by far!

Also, rav> everything!
