League / Tournament Play / Forged in Fire not legal at GenCon
« on: July 20, 2014, 10:40:45 PM »

Hello Raymond (ID: 140483),

You have registered for BGM1464415 Mage Wars Gen Con 2014 Championship.

The event organizer wanted to send you the following message. If you have any questions specifically about this game, please contact the event organizer directly, if they listed their contact information.

Please be advised, this is a multi-day tournament. Rounds 1 - 2 will be played on Friday, Rounds 3 - 4 on Saturday, and the Top 8 will compete in the Finals on Sunday. Please bring a 120-point spellbook with cards from sets published on or before July 1st, 2014. Also, please bring any condition markers, tokens, etc. necessary for your spellbook, e.g. Vet tokens, Burn markers. Arena boards will be provided.

I own 2 of every thing except spell tome 1 and spell tome 2 (one of each of those) and I only have 3 gorgon Archers. Doesn't seem right...

And by adding them in there, that is where seeing what expansions they were released in comes in to play.

Because if the don't have an expansion, they aren't "tournament legal"

The missing card in the list is Morning Star, a level 1 war weapon, that I have as a promo, but was released in FiF.

The plan is basically get some zombie on the field using the graveyard and casting them, then strap a Zombie frenzy onto a Mage Wand and make them dance, like in Michael Jackson's thriller. The 3 zombie frenzy and 2 wands are all in there in case the first wand and frenzy get destroyed, I have a back up. And if That second gets destroyed, I have one more frenzy to use.

The maim wings are in there because I have no way of dealing with fliers.

Chain lightning i just love it as a spell.

Ring of fire and repulse are in there as a "when the S*** hits the fan" strategy.

Wand of Healing because I have no way to remove conditions.

Explode is there because i just think it's awesome. Deals damage, burns, and destroys armor.

Poison blood is to shut down regeneration.

Plague zombie combos with Sacrificial Alter and Graveyard.

Drawbacks from the 2 games I played so far. I always felt like I never had enough mana to do anything. I'm not sure if i should add Moonglow Amulet, or Meditation Amulet, or if a flower/crystal or 2 is the way to go.

I learned that you don't put the graveyard in the corner, because if your opponent scurries across the board, they can easily drop 15-16 mana and completely wall off your graveyard.

any suggestions / comments from some more experienced necro players.

And if tournament legality is what determines whether or not it goes into the database, why bother putting FiF in there until after Gen Con.

The rules for GenCon stated that sets released prior to July 1, 2014 would be allowed. Then the date for FiF got pushed back until the 2nd of July. So by their own rules, FiF will not be legal at GenCon.

I understand that, which is why we should also indicate what sets the cards are found in, as well if the card was a promo or not.

a couple things about the card database.

1 - all cards are not in there.

I think all cards ever printed should be in the card data base.

2 - Card sets not listed

I also think that some how the database should show what set he card came out of. This would also show if the card was a promo or not.

i just pm'd you. let me know whats up

why you geyser yourself Bro??

If you can't talk about when then will be released, can you talk about why Balista was not released in FiF? I have 3 of them and I wanna use them!

Apparently both of my core sets are second edition. Mine are just Skeleton, undead.

when you make the next print run of CoK are you going to redesign that box to match this one?

I would like to see the errata only because it would be like the army Ash fights against in Army of Darkness.

When I was originally planning this build, I had galador, and Tarok out, but felt they didn't fit with the theme I was going for, plus they are kind of expensive. I still saw the issue that i was going to have trouble with fliers which is why i added the eagles wings, and maim wings.

My other issue with the life tree is it effects all living things, even my opponents.

I just took out the Storm drake hide, regrowth and one blood spline wall  to add a Giant Wolf Spider to help with Ranged attacks.
