Could you sign me up in the 8th slot? I want to draft last.

I can do that. If we get 16 participants you want me to drop you to 16th?

Sure.

Just to be clear - as the last one to draft i get the one that no one else wants right?

Not quite. Everyone's picking 2 ingredients, and while I'm a little rusty on my math but after a quick mental calculation I think there's something like 36 different combinations involved. Anyway, there'll be plenty of combinations to choose from. But yes, you can't pick any of the seven combinations that are drafted ahead of you, which does limit your choice somewhat.

This was kind of unclear to me as well, might want to edit your first post. I thought you can't choose any factions other people choose, rather than not being to choose the exact combination that other people choose.

Edited first post with a section clarifying the drafting process. If you have any more questions, please let me know--and don't forget to vote on the next two ingredients to be revealed later tonight! The final three ingredients will be revealed tomorrow just before the drafting starts.

Updated with the last three secret ingredients and a link to the draft thread.

Merlin, I know you wanted to draft last but at this point I've locked you in at 7th since we don't have an 8th participant yet.--you've been moved back to the 8th spot.

That final slot will remain open for most of next week, but if you're interested in participating in this tournament please sign up as soon as possible. You'll be doing yourself a favor by securing more time to work on your deck.

Updated OP with the drafted ingredients, small clarification to following quote.

AS A REMINDER,

NOTE: All players must submit their decklists (preferably via Forum pm) to me by evening Friday, July 22nd, along with a paragraph or two discussing their deckbuilding choices. If you make any changes between submitting your list and the tournament, let me know.

When I say evening this Friday, just go by your local time. I'd prefer to have the decklists as soon as possible, but I also understand that you'll want to playtest and iterate on them for a while. However, I expect to receive a finalized version of your decklist on Friday.

Unfortunately I will have to withdraw from this event. My apologies to the other participants and to Ben.

Since Merlin's withdrawing from the event, we have another open guaranteed slot. If you want to participate, sign up and draft your ingredients now!

There will also be a waitlist in case more players have to drop--and in the event that we have 8 more players sign up, we'll expand the tourney to 16 players.
