Tournament Schedule Update

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been busy as you-know-what the last few weeks. Between getting a driver's license, room cleaning, recovering from doing a Judo/Karate double dose when you're not used to it...doesn't leave a lot of time to go "Oh, I'll put up a nice little post here!" lol.

So here I am with a much-needed tournament schedule update.

Tomorrow, 8/14, is a casual day. No tournament, just nice play with nice friends. :)

Next week, 8/21, is also a casual day. We had a tournament from Tiff scheduled for this day, but with all she has going on it's been tough to find time for her to get ready for it, so I'd rather take pressure off her than hold us to the schedule.

So with the next two weeks out of the way, here's what our schedule's looking like for the next few..well, months!:

8/14: Casual Day
8/21: Casual Day
8/28: Casual Day

9/4: Tiff's "Un-"Orthodox Tournament. Rules still TBD. $2 Entry, prizes come from M11 prize pack splitting.
9/11: *NEW* American Pride Day. Show up and play with a deck consisting of only Red, White, and Blue cards and get a free pack of M11!*
9/18: Tournament TBD
9/25: Casual Day

10/2: Cube Draft 3, including a special set of additions for this round.**
10/9: Scars of Mirrodin "Release" Draft, details TBD
10/16: Casual Day
10/23: Tournament, Format TBD.
10/30: Casual Day, may do some kind of Halloween special deal but I'm not sure yet.

Hopefully we've got a decent line-up of stuff in the pipeline. We've got 2 tournament days we need ideas for, so feel free to post suggestions and get involved. It's always more fun when people come up with new ideas!

Until we see you next, take care!

* In acknowledgment of the 9th anniversary of 9/11, we'll do a bit of an American Pride theme to the day. Show up with a deck consisting of only Red, White, and Blue cards and get a free pack of M11 for your effort.

Clarifications for American Pride Day:
1) Colorless artifacts are fine as long as they...
   a) Can provide Red and/or White and/or Blue mana (so artifacts that make "one mana of any color" are okay, as they can provide these 3 colors), or
   b) Require Red and/or White and/or Blue activated costs.

2) Non-Basic lands that give you access to more than one color of mana are fine as long as they can provide at least 2 of the 3 colors (Reflecting Pool and Exotic Orchard are good since they'll only be referencing Red and/or White and/or Blue producers to see what they can make).

3) Of course multi-color cards are okay, as long as they contain only 2-3 of these 3 colors (example: Lightning Helix works, but not Woolly Thoctar)

I think you get the point of American Pride day: Red, White, and Blue will wave freely on 9/11 in Hixson!  :)

**HINT: Who can deny the force of American Power? You've gotta have a lot of Moxy to stand up to it.


  1. Not sure if this is on-topic, but a few of us Magic geezers decided it was time to do a weekly Legacy thing down in Cleveland, so we got a bunch of stuff like Wastelands, LEDs, Mox Diamonds, Fetchlands, and FoW, and we're going to be giving them away as prizes.

    When: Every Thursday at 7pm.

    Dicehead Games & Comics, inside Bradley Square Mall

    Every non-"Un" set is legal, from Alpha all the way up to M11, with a small banned list that you can find here:


    We would love to have you guys down to play.

  2. It's not a problem to post a reply about your own tournaments. I just ask that you spread the word of our little casual league. We need all the advertising help we can get! So if you know anyone who's local who's got friends looking for a more casual atmosphere, be sure to let them know about us. Thanks! :)
