1. I am PlanetWalls online, declaring my intent to register and also to kick everyone’s left buttock.

    I also intend to donate 5 additional event tickets to the prize pool.

  2. Im aristi2 online, im a new player in both mtgo and this format, so I dont have much to offer to the prize pool, but what I can offer is a new player with real hopes to be a contender in this format!

  3. Hey,
    This is ntaylorw1 – never played this format before, but your recent articles have wheted my appetite! I’m trying to convince a few other friends who love commander to make the leap this Saturday – thanks for making the effort to expand the game!

  4. Hi, register me (slug360)
    Want to donate 1 Fire & Lightning and 1 Slivers Premium Deck Series + a bunch of foils and promos.

  5. enderfall, reporting for duty! I will also donate a Foil Promo Sylvan Library to the cause.

  6. Hi I wanna join this event but I am not sure what time it is here in the Philippines. I think it would be Sat night here. anyway. I’ll take a look if I can join.

  7. its 4 hours to go right? i hate to do the math on timezones! Would be nice if one of the officials show up in the chat. :-)

  8. I’m posting my gameplay vids above (no commentary — didn’t think I could concentrate with being involved in tournament prep), and decklists will be following this evening.

  9. Congrats on the turnout, I’d love to play in the next one and will totally make time to do so, and probably find something to donate as a prize.

    Anyone want to battle in the 100cs queue online some time feel free to message me, too! (same screenname as here)

    *eagerly anticipating decklists*

  10. Decklists are available above as .txt files (by players’ names), but our sexy WordPress decklist isn’t ready yet (since it takes forever to plug in the card names).

  11. I had a lot of fun. I really love this deck I played, though, with some more time to test (I moved cross country this weekend), I would most def refine a bit more. Thankfully I had a couple of weenie deck matches, which I can navigate easily.

    Massacre Wurm is a one card combo against these decks.

  12. I’d call one of them closer to Goblins, but yes. It was definitely the right call for the decks that showed up.

  13. Yeah i seen that as well, What i dont understand it how people didnt come prepared to face Red decks at all O.o If you look at my SB that’s EXACTLY what i expected

  14. I thought I was prepared, but even with four cards SB you have to DRAW them to make it help lol if anyone’s interested my games/deck were thrown up on my YouTube as well /MTGOJustSin

  15. I had some conversations with people before the tourney who were a bit salty about losing to RDW. It’s not my favorite deck, either, so I guess I understand. BUT I tried to tell those individuals that 100 is not at all like other formats. You can pack all 15 cards to one strategy and you might never see any of them. And if you do, you’ll see one or two and often that’s just not enough to win sometimes. It’s a completely different beast.

  16. RDW is so consistent. It’s funny, because the age-old argument that red is boring, and just has a ton of cards that sort of just do the same things, actually makes it super lethal in a format where every hand can feel uber-varied.

    I feel like my deck had sufficient life gain. In testing, I never lost a match to a RDW/Gobbos deck; my dudes are better, I’ve got the life gain, and I can put them to their burn so they don’t get throat punched. I can navigate blood moon effects (and did). But, yeah, these decks can just win, even when it seems like they’re losing. It’s kind of awesome–though I think the deck is pretty boring/uninspired (as a dude he tries to make decks).


  17. I was prepared for the Red deck (in theory)…. but I never faced one, of course!

    RDW in 100 CS is a completely different beast from RDW in Legacy, etc. In Legacy its: Turn 1 Suspend Rift Bolt, Turn 2 Cast Rift Bolt, Lightning Bolt and Goblin Guide, Turn 3 Lava Spike and Lightning Bolt then Fireblast ->win. Almost every game goes that way.

    In 100 CS, the lack of redundancy makes RDW a lot more interesting. You can win through a bunch of burn spells, or you can win through some efficient and/or hasty creatures. Hellrider, Hero of Oxid Ridge; these guys would never see the light of day in Legacy, but they are perfect for 100 CS!!

  18. Alas, I did not record them, but I will be making a vid discussing the deck and proffering insight into why I chose to play it.
