Since I haven’t seen MPots in chat today I make this decisone whiteout his knowledge, sorry. Since The only true man is unable to finish this tourney Crovbar takes his place. Due to this I extend the last matches with 2 more days to saturday.

Fine by me. New deadline is 28th April, may the odds be ever in your favour :P

Two matches didn’t get played, the more active players have been put through.

You have until the end of the 26th of April to finish your round 2 match. Good luck! Remember to PM your opponent so you can set your match up. If you can’t find a time you can meet, tell me or edcedcedc.

If you want you can send me your decks before the match, and I can tell you if they are legal or not. I’m in chat quite a lot, or you can pm me using this link: http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/MPots/private_messages?focus=true
I’ll answer as soon as I can.
It’s also probably worth noting that everyone has the same restrictions. Beating AI3 isn’t your aim, it’s beating other decks as limited as yours.

You can have a slice of magic pie. Sound good? :)
Also, it may seem obvious but after a match the winner needs to post the results here.

1. How long does I have to play an opponent? A week?

2. Do we need to post decks to forum? For legibility sake? A veteran or an organizer should be around and spectate the game, or at least verify the used decks whether it’s legal or not.

1. You’ll have three days to play each opponent.
2. I think I’ve decided now that I’m not going to join. After your games, PM decks to me and tell me roughly what your opponent was using each game. It’s worth doing even if you don’t win, in case your opponent has used an illegal deck.
I think PMing is better than posting here, as it means you get to keep your decks secret.

With two relics you can only get an extra copy of one card, so 4 tears or 4 reverse time or 4 dry spells.

When I said shards are banned, I meant shards are banned. You can’t use them, even with relics/skeletons.

Someone doesn’t know his own rules.

- For each relic in a deck, one rare card can be used. Ultra rares (nymphs and mark cards) are treated as normal rare cards. Shards are allowed. As stated above, rares cost nothing. Upgraded rares cost 1500, too much to be used.

Wow, I really wrote that. Changed now, thanks for pointing that out, and sorry for being an idiot.

They cost 1500 for the upgrade cost, which is too much to actually be played. Sorry that wasn’t clear." (im new at posting on kong, forgive me xD) just because it cant be played doesnt mean you cant have it in your deck right? Therefore there not banned from being in the deck, but banned from being played?

They are actually banned from the deck. You need to build a deck for 600 electrum (or 1050 with max relics) and 1500 is much more than that.

You just broke my mind. If you mean is this deck legal:

It isn’t legal. Sorry.

IGN: dawn_to_dusk
time zone: eastern australia (eastern)

EDIT: so let me get this straight… if i have 36 cards, 6 of them being skellies or rellies, i can make a deck costing 1050 and have 6 of 1 card

The EDIT of my EDIT: i have 6 rage pots and 6 skellies. thats fine right?

okay, this is the last one: does the mark matter?

Once more for luck: are we allowed to discard skellies or rellies if need be?

i really should stop this soon: Decks must use at least six cards from at least two different elements. does this count towards skellies? im asking this if we can make a mono with 6 skellies

THIS IS (probably) THE LAST ONE: can we have skellies in our deck for strategic purposes only? (like rev time)

Okay. Deep breath.

The first edit is correct. You could also have a thity card deck with 6 relics.

Having six rage potions and six skeletons is fine, because you are using six ‘relics’ (skeletons) for three extra copies of rage potion. However, this does not count as a duo deck, as skeleton is considered to be an other card if used as a relic for this tournament.

You can have any mark you want.

You can discard skeletons and relics.

If you are using skeleton in your deck as a relic you cannot play it, for any reasons. If you really want to use skeleton in your deck (Why? Srsly, why?) then you can substitute it for another dead card, e.g. antilion.
It would probably be a good idea to tell your opponent (once the game has started) that you’re doing this to avoid any confusion.

Topic: Elements / TOURNAMENT 600 ELECTRUM

Since the last kong tournament was pretty popular, here’s another one! Me and edcedcedc are organising. If you have any questions you can ask either of us in chat, or pm us. There is no limit on how many people can join. It’s quite new-player friendly (I think), so don’t be afraid to have a go!

Rules:

Deckbuilding:

1. All decks must cost less than 600 electrum. This can be used for finding the total cost of a deck: http://elementscommunity.org/tools/xenocidius/costcalculator/ (This counts the cost of relics and skeletons, remember to take them out!)
Rare cards can only be used with a relic (see below), and cost nothing. Upgraded rares/cards cost 1500, too much to actually be used.

2. Only three copies of the same card can be used in one deck. Any number of pillars/pendulums can be used. Quantum pillars are banned. Fractal is banned. Discord is banned. Shards are banned, even if you’re using a skeleton/relic.

3. Decks must use at least six cards from at least two different elements. These cards cannot be pillars or pendulums, or ‘other’ cards. For example:


This deck is legal.


This deck is not legal.


This deck is not legal.


This deck is not legal.


This deck is not legal.


This deck is not legal.


In this deck skeleton is used as a relic, and is considered an other card. The deck is not a duo, which makes it illegal.

4. Putting a relic in a deck gives it bonuses. It’s up to you to decide if it is worth having a dead card in your deck for these. For players without relics, skeleton shall be counted as relics. There is a limit of six relics per deck – you’re not allowed to use six skeletons and one relic. If skeleton is used as a relic, you are not allowed to play the skeleton.
- For each relic in a deck, the amount of money that deck can cost increases by 75. A deck with one relic can cost 675 electrum, a deck with two can cost 750 electrum, etc.
- For each relic in a deck, one rare card can be used. Ultra rares (nymphs and mark cards) are treated as normal rare cards. Shards are not allowed. As stated above, rares cost nothing. Upgraded rares cost 1500, too much to be used.
- For every two relics in a deck, you can use an extra copy of one card. For example, a deck with two relics in it could use four otyugh. It could not use four otyugh and four momentum.

Sign Ups

To join, just post your elements in game name and time zone below. You have until the 19th of April to sign up. Games shall start on the 20th of April.

Playing your opponent

Once you find out who you’re playing, PM your opponent and find a time where you can both meet. After PMing them, PM me to let me know.
If the match doesn’t happen for whatever reason, the more active player shall be awarded the win. I shall judge which played is the more active using these PMs, so they are important.
If you can’t find a time, PM your deck codes to both me and edcedcedc immediately. We will then try to play against your opponent with your decks.
You can use the following link to PM me: http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/MPots/private_messages?focus=true

Desyncs and disconnections

If either you or your opponent gets disconnected or has a desync, then you and your opponent must agree to do one of the following.
- Replay the game. Both players have to use the same decks.
- Play against the AI. If both players beat the AI, or both players lose to the AI, and have a screenshot as proof, then replay the game. Both players have to use the same decks. If one player loses or has no screenshot then the other one wins that round.
- If one player was clearly going to win the game, do the honourable thing and give them the win.

Prizes

All players in the top three will recieve electrum reward codes.

One random, active player will recieve an electrum reward code.

Games will be best of three. You do not have to use the same deck each time.

Wow, I wrote a lot.

Hint: 30 card decks are recommended.
Hint: 600 electrum is a limit, not a target. A deck costing 600 electrum is not necessarily better than a deck costing 450.

Topic: Elements / deck building forum game

Something a bit different. Dragons are good hitters, and are used over shrieker because they’re much better at absorbing creature control. Steal is mainly for cards like discord, fog shield and dimensional shield, which would otherwise ruin your game. Earthquake is fantastic at slowing your opponent down, and provides good denial when used with nightmare. Vampire stiletto is a nice bit of damage/healing for only one quanta.

2-1 to me :) ggs dragtom

These are my decks, for anyone who cares:

Grabbow:
4sa 4sa 4sa 4sa 4vi 4vi 4vi 4vi 4vj 4vj 4vj 4vj 4vj 4vj 52q 52q 590 590 590 590 590 590 5c1 5c1 5f6 5f6 5og 5og 61q 61q 8pm
Not that imaginative, but very good.

Immolation deck:
4vi 4vi 4vi 4vi 52q 590 590 5c1 5f6 5f6 5f6 5f9 5f9 5f9 5f9 5f9 5f9 5fa 5fa 5fa 5fa 5fa 5l9 5l9 5l9 5l9 5l9 5l9 5og 5og 8pm
Far from brilliant. Never was a fan of these decks, thought I’d try one here, despite being hopeless at building them.

Discake:
4vh 4vj 4vj 4vj 4vj 4vj 4vj 4vl 4vl 4vl 4vl 50u 50u 50u 50u 50u 50u 55u 590 590 590 590 590 593 593 593 593 5c1 5og 5og 8pm
Stick or twist deck, never lost to a mono, never beat a rainbow :) Fun though, full credit goes to Dm1321

Pandebonium:
4vp 4vp 4vp 4vp 4vp 4vp 52g 52g 52g 52g 52g 52g 52g 52g 52g 52g 52m 52o 52o 52o 52o 52q 52q 52r 52r 52r 52r 52r 52r 542 542 8pj
Didn’t lose a game with those, though I had a few close ones. Does very well against creature based decks.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Two things to say. First, we did play twice, I beat you with a rainbow and an entropy/death deck, second, I said I wouldn’t use your version.
