KD Magic Event - Brawl


Starting this Friday we will be running some MTG Brawl events. Starting at 4pm and run up until FNM starts at 7pm. There will be no entry cost for this event and no prize support, although players are welcome to have a cards from our old stock of FNM promo cards for attending.

What is Brawl?

You build a 60-card Standard-legal deck around a legendary creature or planeswalker. You can only have one copy of any given card in your deck other than basic lands. Your legendary creature or planeswalker starts in the command zone and works the same way that you might be used to from Commander: you can cast it for its mana cost, and then again for an additional two mana each time. Each player starts with 30 life.

What will the format be?

Depending on the amount of players interested we will be playing multi player games or between 3 and 5 player, ideally 4. Each game will be un-timed and last until there is only one player remaining.
Although this is a casual format I will be issuing KD points for people that attend and we will be looking at running a competitive format in the future if there is enough interest.  

The will be a facebook event created for people to confirm attendance.
