Users may not post with the primary purpose of discussing, debating, or speculating about the banlist or unbanning/banning cards outside of the Official "State of Brawl" thread, which can be found stickied in Brawl general. Follow all thread rules when posting there.
Users who post about these topics outside of the thread will be warned/infracted accordingly.
Users may mention bans outside of the banlist thread if the primary purpose is not to discuss, debate, or speculate on the banlist or the banning/unbanning of cards. The primary purpose of the reference must be related to the thread in which the user is posting. For example, saying "Card X is probably getting banned on Monday. Should we swap Card A for Card B in our sideboard?" is okay in a deck thread. Responding to that with "Card X is definitely not getting banned on Monday; it will be Card Y" is a violation of this rule. PM the staff if you have any questions; posts that cross the line will be warned/infracted at the moderators' discretion.
No Brawl/Standard/Frontier/Modern/Legacy/Any other format bashing
The Brawl forum is for people who want to play the Brawl format. Posting for the purpose of bashing Brawl will be infracted. Similarly, just because this is Brawl doesn't mean it's okay to bash other formats. Don't hate on Legacy, Standard, Modern or other enjoyable ways of playing the game. It is okay to constructively criticize the format in certain threads and certain contexts. Use common sense and good judgement when posting and you will be fine.
Users who violate this rule will be warned/infracted accordingly.
Don't post decklists to Brawl General
The main Brawl forum is for format-wide issues, single card discussions, questions about Brawl, and other broad issues. Decklists need to go in the Decklist Forum. Repeat offenders, or longtime users who should know the rules, might be infracted for violating this.
Use the search function
Please use the search function to see if your topic already exists. Duplicate threads will be merged or closed. Repeat offenders may receive moderation.
Use Deck/Card Tags
When posting a list talking about card(s), please used their corresponding tags. This makes the conversation easier, as people can now see exactly what card(s) you're talking about. An explanation on how to use them is here. For new posters, moderators and other users will just remind you to use them. For repeat offenders or veteran posters who frequently forget, you may get a warning or infraction.
If you see someone breaking rules, REPORT IT! Don't get involved!
Please don't backseat mod! We want to infract the offender, not the well-intentioned poster who intervenes. If another poster is breaking a rule, just use the "Report Post" button to involve the moderators. Don't try to handle it yourself, especially if the offending post is targeting or baiting you.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding these rules or the Brawl Forum, please contact one of the Brawl forum moderators, or post in our Helpdesk.
Spoiled Card Policy
When talking about spoiled cards as a generality, please keep it in the designated "spoiler thread" in Brawl General. SCDs for spoiled cards are NOT allowed until the whole set is released. Feel free to discuss the cards in threads for decks.
If a card is not on the Official MTGS Spoiler Page, yet is believed to be in the new set, it is considered a rumor, or speculation. Discussion on cards of this nature is not allowed in the Brawl forum, and should be kept in the Rumor Mill or its appropriate subforum.
When discussing a new card, or any card really, please give your reasons for why you think a newly spoiled card belongs.
If you put a spoiled card in a decklist, please LINK to the spoiled card in our spoiler list.
