Mage Wars Academy / Academy Tournament This Weekend
« on: January 10, 2018, 03:12:50 PM »
Hey guys,

I've been thinking of running a small Academy Tournament on OCTGN this weekend. The interface isn't exactly setup on OCTGN, but a lot of us has made it work. I would love to get 4-8 people and just play a bunch of games in a round robin. If there is a good draw I'd love to do a monthly thing for funsies.

I was thinking Sunday 1/14 starting around 11:00 AM Chicago Time. And let's just run all the games that day! If you can only make part of it then that should be ok. Looking for a super casual thing. I want to play in it too!

Events / ADMW Open 2 - An Open Online Mage Wars Tournament
« on: December 31, 2017, 11:47:24 AM »
ADMW Open 2

  • The tournament will be played in two stages. The first stage will be a round robin. There will be 20 (changed from 16) total players separated into 4 groups. The top two players in each group will advance to the second stage. Each week you will be assigned a new matchup in your bracket. You will have two weeks to complete each matchup. Extensions will only be granted on a case by case basis. The tournament will begin April 15th, 2018. Once all games have been played we will advance to the next stage.
  • A tie break looks at the match record between tied participants. For example, if Katherine and Dave are tied based on statistics but Katherine won when they played during the tournament, Katherine wins the tie break. When more than 2 participants are tied, they're ranked by the number of wins each one had against the others.
    The second stage will be a double elimination tournament. The date to begin will be determined after the first stage is completed.
  • Winners bracket finalist has to be defeated twice by the losers bracket finaliast in the Grand Finals.
    All cards from Academy Forcemaster and Warlord and all sets prior are legal to use. All promotional cards available on OCTGN are also legal.
  • Players will build a spellbook with the standard amount of spellbook points and restrictions.
    Any promotional cards that have been officially released in a set will be considered to read as the official released in a set version

Restrictions And/Or Clarifications

  • Disciple of Radiance Text Change
    Once per round, whenever your Mage casts or reveals a healing spell, Disciple of Radiance may deal 1 direct light damage to a target creature in her zone
  • Casting a Spell - Change to the end of the Pay Costs Step
    Previous wording - If you cannot pay all of the costs, the spell is cancelled and discarded, and you have lost the action.
    New wording -If you cannot pay all of the costs, the spell is cancelled and obliterated, and you have lost the action.
    Everything else remains unchanged about the step
  • Steep Hill
    Steep hill will block Line of Sight if you cast a spell and it goes through two diagonal sections of the zone.
  • Force Pull
    Once per round, the Forcemaster may cast this quick Force spell. Target creature is Pushed 1 zone towards the source of this spell. Will not Push a creature through a wall with the Passage Attacks trait.
  • Trample
    - If a Flying creature attacks a non-Flying object, it loses Flying until the end of the attack.
    - Elusive Creatures can ignore guards when making a Trample Attack
    - Defenses that do not work against Melee attacks cannot be used during the Avoid Attack step, however all other types may be (choosing one during the step following normal rules).

If a player gets disconnected and dropped during a tournament match it will be considered a loss for that player

A judge makes the final call on a rule. Any argumentative discussion that takes an excessive amount of time will receive a warning then if it continues that player will be disqualified.

The Upkeep and Planning phases will be timed. You are allowed 5 minutes (300 seconds) at the start of the planning phase using the in game timer. Judges will regulate the timer - If there is no judge you can agree to not time the match

During both the first and last quick cast and the main action phase - Players will be limited to 1 minute to decide each action. Executing an action will not be timed. Judges will regulate the timer - If there is no judge you can agree to not time the match.

Only games from the second stage are required for judges. You and your opponent may both agree to play a game without a judge. If one player wishes to have a judge then the game must be put on hold until a time can be arranged for all parties involved. After the game both players must submit the results.

If you receive a Bye it will be considered a win. In that case you must choose a mage to be marked as a played mage.

General Discussion / Arcane Duels - Call for Artists!
« on: June 12, 2017, 01:20:24 PM »
Hey guys,
We’ve been discussing the future of Arcane Duels and all the stuff we want to do and realized that we have some pretty old artwork.
It would mean a lot to us if there are any community artists that would like to give it a shot!  We are looking for single images of each of us that we could splice together to show everyone who is in the video.  Don’t let that stop you from doing some cool stuff of all of us if you really want to!
We would make sure to give credit to each artist when the images are used in a video!  Please email your submissions to
