As Sunfire is currently indisposed he asked me to post the rules for this most noble of tournaments in his stead. After extracting an acceptable price I have agreed to do so and changed the rules so they best suit myself whilst doing so.


Best of 3, single elimination. Any creatures, any tokens, only restriction is no moss.

Obtain your dice rolls from https://www.random.org/dice/ - roll 2 die at once.

The first roll decides your twist, the second the quantity. For example, rolling 2 then 5 means you must have a minimum of 5 different species in your ritual for that round.

  • 1 - No handicap, no effect - disregard second dice roll
  • 2 - Minimum number of species in the ritual
  • 3 - Minimum number of creatures affiliated with a land (NML, LR etc.) - List coming soon! Check first post.
  • 4 - Must have at least one creature of that level in the rit
  • 5 - Must have minimum number of coloured crits
  • 6 - Handicaps 2 - 5 together, all 4.

If you are unable to have a full 6 creatures in your ritual, you must add 5% of influence per creature. Should it be discovered you are opting to leave out valid creatures from your ritual according to the dice rolls... I have heard Sunfire has something special planned for you.

Rewards? You'd have none if it were up to me but the glory of competing, I suppose Sunfire might have different ideas however...

i have received valid questions from Lashtal, i will post them here for all to see:

" do we re-roll between each fight?"

yes, each fight will mean a reset of the handicaps

" what if i have no valid creatures for the requirements?"

your opponent automatically gets a point

I'd say that banning the Moss but not the other Aia creation (Berserker I believe - that does aimshot to all allied creature) is a bit unfair. Both are cheesy in their ability to make a ritual lose. One is just more accessible.

One would think so, but if a certain leader of the Caretakers did happen to possess of such Berserkers, ascended to their highest level, and also did happen to create the rules, mayhap, naught were overlooked?

It might have certainly been overlooked purposefully, I'd just like to raise concerns about it :)

Exclusion of, even a single creature, for balance purposes, should imply that a creatures could be excluded, for balance purposes. I'd even go further, and saying for the sake of a tournament, it makes even more sense to ban the more limited creature - rather than the commonly accessible one: A creature that all can possess hardly provide an advantage to any specific individual.

      For a long time now, i have considered myself both a poison and a medicine to this world. Like a burning fire in the woods, i equally destroyed and simultaneously helped make room for regrowth. At times i did this knowingly, other times i did it against my better knowledge. I am here today to let MagicDuel as a community know, that it is time to fully and truly dedicate myself to the Path of Light. This is not to say that my prior attempts were invalid or simply an act to mislead, as i have been genuinely trying to regress myself back to what i once was in the beggining for many many moons now. I feel like a broken record, but every new realization also gets me closer to my goal of getting back to what i once was without losing what i have learned. It has not been easy, matter of fact most times i almost gave up from the sheer stress and shame i felt in most of my waking moments. It is in this newest phase that i have realized something, and i believe it is important enough to share publically. MagicDuel has made me the man i am today, for better or for worse. It is up to me and my limitations or lack thereof to decide which category i fall into, Poison vs Medicine. So today i place my foot down and wholly dedicate myself to being the Medicine that i believe MagicDuel deserves. MD has made me everything i am and am not, thus it has earned my full and undying respect for the 7th and final time. I will not stray from this path, so i say let the games begin.

      Beggining as of April 1st 2018 and every month thereafter, i am holding what i have come to know as the Activity Tournament. For every new hour you are logged into MD (using server time) you will be able to gain 1 point towards the Monthly Activity Limit. Anyone could simply stay lazily logged in all day and gain 24 points (1 point for every hour) for said day, but that is not the daily cap. Anyone that is actually doing something (resource gathering, fighting, holding a conversation of non generic structure, etc) during that time frame will be able to gain double the points,  for a true daily point cap of 48 points. All point attempts are to be sent to me in the form of a set of screenshots over forum, 1 for every seperate hour window of game time and as a batch file at the end of each month. I say window because a SS taken @ 12:01 server time will be worth the same point chance as one taken at 12:59 server time and they can not be counted twice for the same hour window. Unless sponsorship of some sort is obtained, i can only reward the first place winner of this Activity Contest but i feel the rewards are worth fighting for. First place gets 20 credits, and remember this will reoccur every month for the top ranking dedicated MD player.

      A side note: If work or school hinders your chance at winning, i might suggest using the Google Chrome mobile browser to at least attempt to (if planned appropriately) log in, harvest a resource on scene, and take a SS for maximum points. To the extent of my knowledge the Google Chrome mobile browser doesnt mark anyone as alts since it does not use a proxy (for the record, dont use proxies) but i would appreciate it greatly if @Chewett could either verify or correct that statement. If any questions arise or anything i have said is unclear please do feel free to ask on this thread and i will be happy to answer to the best of my abilities. If you do not have anything progressive or positive to state about this action then i kindly ask you not post at all but failing that realize that from this very moment on i will be ignoring all negative commentary so do not be surprised if someone makes that type of statement and it goes unacknowledged by me. Thank you for your time and have a wonderful day.

      Greetings Magic Duellers,
      for this year's Halloween I'm willing to organize a spellcasters tournament, open to everybody.
      Contestants are required to set nice spell-words for their favorite spells (MD spells - either regenerable or spell stones).
      Each contestant will "battle" against another - direct elimination - using one cast of one spell of their choice.
      In each battle, 2 judges will rate your magic arts under these criteria:
      1- how fancy/inspiring/evocative your spell words are;
      2- how appropriate your spell words are to the actual spell;
      (e.g., "may the fleas of a 1000 camels infest your armpits" might be appropriate for a "attack-lock" spell, but not for a "mirror ritual"...)
      3- how much Halloween feeling you managed to put in your magic.
      The contestant with highest score wins and passes the turn.
      Each contestant may only use a combination of spell / spell-words once: if they pass the turn, they have to battle either with another spell or with different spell-words.
      To apply, post here your name and ID by 21 October.
      After that date, there will be a random matching to determine who fights against whom in the first turn.
      Rewards will depend on the number of applications, if 8 or above I'll toss in a Horseman creature for the winner.
