Cool, new tournament types :D

Is it just me or will FD/SoA/CoV be too strong with the siphoner combo?

eh it will be fine. The deck is super rng based because you need a 3-4 card combo (depending on if you draw swift strikes) to get the otk combo, and if you don't draw siphoner then you are just screwed. It's definitely a strong deck but just because it is strong doesn't mean it will be a problem.

The strongest deck in the Rainbow format is FD Hermit with Flame Dawn Doge in command. It really should have zero problems crushing basically any other Rainbow deck.

If it's any other format Clear Shot as a deck is pretty below average.

Cool, never played in a rainbow tournament so I wouldn't know.

Even when double-checking, triple-checking is probably safer! Fixed, thanks for the alert.

Old-new. We just hadn't used the format in a few weeks, it's been straight Single Elimination for awhile. Rainbow and 3P events help to maintain diversity and represent different meta decks, same with Pauper.

The sign up page for the first October Swiss Tourney is now up! The rules and prizes are the same for now but are subject to change at any time before the tourney. I apologize for the short notice, but hopefully a lot of people can still make it :D
