    Great turnout today!

    MTGO crashed for me and I could not end task so I ragequit.

    I voted against Mystical Tutor's unbanning. Apparently I was wrong as the finals was a 4c Blood 4c mirror.

    Thanks to all for the good times!


    ML, the first post states that LED is banned whereas it is legal.

    Hey all,
    It has been an honour to be the host for such a long time. But, it may be a good idea after so many years to change the captain on the bridge(insider joke, because lowman is a captain of the US Army:-). He will replace me as host for the future. He definitely has the energy to give the event new impulses and we all know his deep knowledge about Magic. Thanks to all for the good times!


    Wow. Thank you for all you have done! From finding a sponsor to hosting off of free WiFi in the coffee shop while you were in the middle of an unexpected move.

    At first I thought that you wanted some new players and grow the community but obviously in general you don't.


    It's beyond presumptuous of you to think you know my intentions for the community when

    1) I literally said While I agree reddit has more advantages than Salvation
    2) I have actually posted to reddit about S100
    https://www.reddit.com/r/MTGO/comments/5ivoj9/free_event_33_tix_given_out_sat_dec_24th_xmas_eve/
    https://www.reddit.com/r/MTGO/comments/3y3dfu/free_player_run_event_dec_26th_20_tickets_prize/
    https://www.reddit.com/r/MTGO/comments/3x8r37/free_playerrun_event_saturday_1926_20_tickets/

    3) I manage the S100 Facebook page
    4) You've participated in this event 12 times to my 102

    While I agree reddit has more advantages than Salvation, I don't believe it is cut&dried black&white.

    Reddit will archive your posts after six months.
    Posts more than a week old are hidden if it doesn't get an upvote in the last week. With a small user base, it is easy for a very relevant post to not get an upvote in a week.
    All users on Salvation are MTG players while few users of Reddit are. You will have "stumble" traffic either way.

    I hope you see the power of Eladamri's Call and then decide to add this card to your decks which have access to green and white mana. As the Sensei notes above, this card is currently underplayed and I tend to agree.


    I feel like if Eladamri's Call was RW RU or WU, it would have easily been banned. Mystical Tutor is banned and casting it puts you down a card.

    ML, your numbers are correct. 12 voted for un-bans and 9 voted for bans. Also, you can go into profile > preferences > Show censored content.

    Hello all,

    ML recently charged me with an objective, after vehement disagreement about the direction of the 100c format and its banned listing: to develop a council, similar to German or Canadian Highlander, of voting members who would maintain the ban listing as well as a watch list, which would be used as a tool to ban cards in following meetings of the council; cards that were either introduced through new set development or old cards which see repeated abusiveness in the format. The council would convene to discuss these matters through text chat on mtgo @ #100cCouncil on a biannual basis (June and December exact times to be set by council through coordination with other members) with updates to both the banned list and the watch list, requiring a majority vote for a ban or unban from all voting members (or inclusion on the watch list). There would be 7 voting members on this council to ensure that votes were definitive in nature, but with a majority always achieved. All voting members would be required to vote on any card presented for a vote. Any card that would be removed from the banned list would automatically be on the watch list until the following meeting of the council, meaning that these cards unbanned would be automatically open to rebanning upon the council convening in the subsequent biannual session or for emergency purposes if the format were to grow too unhealthy. Upon determination of this council's members, there would be immediate voting on the current ban list and a nomination of the watch list with effects taking place in the next tournament structure the week following the voting session and dissemination of the council's decision.

    I would ask if anyone does not consent to those I've recommended come forward and recommend another, but I think all of these folks are worthy of the charge, if they accept, I expect that we'll have 1-2 folks that would prefer not to vote if that's the case then I'd ask that you let that be known...for instance dawts is a hell of a player, but I'm not sure if he has interest in maintaining the format and may have moved on to other MTGO ventures, etc.

    If uncontested in the charge, I could lead the council, all this would equate to is establishing the meeting times and collectivizing the result from all voting members and providing ML the extract to update the front page...nothing more.

    Sensei, if possible it'd be nice to know how well my gut led me in listing these players, have I missed other players that have shown continued success in the format and have been a mainstay of the community?...you've been the de facto secretary of the format for a while with the number keeping etc. So if you have some spare time, I'd appreciate how players stack up in regards to volume of play and success in the format if that's possible.

    --KB



    Your proposed council has six of the seven winningest players. I don't have the stats on the seven who has participated in the most events. Of your seven, I agree at least one will be unable or uninterested in participating. In that case, we should extend an invitation to totalhate if he is interested.

    I also think the meetings should be a week before/after the Spring and Fall expansion releases.

    33 wins, 101 total The_Sensei
    15 W/ 49 T seaandrhythm
    14 W/ 89 T Michelle_Wong
    12 W/ 41 T lowman02
    8 W/ 31 T dawts
    7 robertZDar
    5 ML_Berlin
    5 totalhate

    I think you would do well to lead the council. My infant son and leading a council would be at odds for my time and energy.

    LOL Lowman, I will give it a try. Smile

    May I ask what you think of the new Thrun, the Last Troll in Ixalan? He is called "Carnage Tyrant" and he is six mana. He is worse than Thrun, but do you think he is worthy to add to s100 sideboards? The Tyrant is completely bonkers with Swords of X & Y, please take note.

    In summary I don't think he will see any play in s100. However people will regret not adding him to the sideboard if they happen to face my Mono Blue Control deck. I have no answer at all to the Tyrant, other than hoping to double-block him with a True-Name Nemesis and another creature and hope that he doesn't have a Sword to equip.

    MTGO bans NEVER rotate on mondays. Unless there's an exception to be made, which can happen, the bans will always be on wednesdays.


    He wasn't asking about IMPLEMENTATION. He asked about the ANNOUNCEMENT.
