2016 Old School Tournaments Rules 2 Jan 2015 News by: Stephane

 

 

The Old School format is a primarily casual format that aims at experiencing again the sensations one had when playing Magic at its very beginning. So as to achieve this, the format only allows cards printed in 1993 and 1994, which means that the number of available cards is really low.
But they are the most emblematic ones, those that made Magic!


General rules of the French "Old School" format

Authorized editions

 

The format only authorizes the cream of the crop of the Magic editions.

  • Alpha
  • Beta
  • Arabian Nights
  • Antiquities
  • Legends
  • The Dark
  • Fallen Empires

The spirit of the format would require that cards are only allowed in the English original edition but most Tournament Organizers allows any language and several reprints to open and enlarge their tournaments' player base.
To know which languages and reprints are authorized by Bazaar of Moxen, please read further.

Important Note
In the Swedish rules (which acts as the world’s reference), Fallen Empires is not a legal expansion.
Fallen Empires has been added after a lot of players test, mostly to grant players access to Hymn to Tourach and Order of the Ebon Hand, as they allow black-based decks to be able to compete with the blue-based decks, like "The Deck".

 


Format rules

 

The current Magic: The Gathering rules are in use, with the following exceptions:

 

  • The official mulligan in Paris, and neither the original mulligan nor the Vancouver one.
    There is no free mulligan for having zero or seven lands ; You cannot "Scry 1" after a mulligan.
  • The "mana burn" rule still exists
    Each unused mana at the end of each phase (not step) does 1 damage to his owner as the mana pool is emptied.
  • Players lose the game when they have zero or less life only at the end of each phase. This state based action is the last thing happening before going to the next phase.
    This rule allows playing "Mirror Universe" in its original spirit, so you can go down to zero during your upkeep, trade life totals, then your opponent dies at the end of the phase for being at zero.
  • The "tapped artifact" rules applies: If an artifact becomes tapped, "continuous effects" cease until the artifact becomes untapped.
    Examples:

    If "Winter Orb" is tapped during a player’s untap step, it has no effect and the player will untap all his lands, the "Winter Orb" and all his permanents together.
    If "Howling Mine" is tapped at the begining of the draw step, it has no effect, the player will not draw an additional card this turn.
    If "Forcefield" is tapped, it can nevertheless be activated, it is not a continuous effect.
    If "Dingus Egg" is tapped, whenever a land will go to the graveyard, "Dingus Egg" will nevertheless deal 2 damage to the land’s controller, because it's a "triggered ability".

 



Precisions

  • The original “Ante” Rule is strictly forbidden as it falls under Wagering under the Magic Infraction and Procedure Guide, for which the penalty is a disqualification.
  • There is no difference between "Interrupts" and "Instants". All "Interrupts" are considered as "Instants".

 

 

Card texts

 

Cards have their current Oracle text, as found on http://gatherer.wizards.com/ with the following exceptions :



Chaos Orb

Card text
1, Tap: Choose a non-token permanent on the battlefield. If Chaos Orb is on the battlefield, flip Chaos Orb onto the battlefield from a height of at least one foot (30cm). If Chaos Orb turns over completely at least once during the flip, and touches the chosen permanent, destroy that permanent. Then destroy Chaos Orb.

Precisions

You can only flip Chaos Orb if it is on the battlefield when its ability resolves. If Boomerang is cast on the Orb in response, it will have no effect.
If you lose, Chaos Orb is nevertheless destroyed.
Chaos Orb doesn’t target.

After multiples text tests, the "Swedish" version still the closest from the spirit of the card and with the most balanced power.

 



Falling Star


Card text

 

Choose up to two different creatures.
For each chosen creature, flip Falling Star onto the battlefield from a height of at least one foot. If Falling Star turns over completely at least once during the flip, and touches the chosen creature, Falling Star deals 3 damages to this creature.
Tap each creature that has been dealt damage this way.

 


Precisions

 

If you choose two creatures, you have to do a flip for each of them separately.
If a win a flip, but the creature doesn't receive damage, protected by a "Healing Salve" for example, this creature will not be tapped.
Falling Star doesn’t target.

Precisions

 

Hymn to Tourach is not restricted, to allow black decks to be stronger against blue control decks and so to open the format diversity.
Strip Mine is restricted, some "land destruction decks" and "control decks" could abuse of it. Goal remains to play Magic ;)
Shahrazad is restricted to avoid unfinishable games.

* The 6 BOM Stages 17 Dec 2015 News by: Stephane


The BoM events:


The BoMs are Open tournament. This means that they are open to ALL players.
 
The BoMs take place during 3-day weekends (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) all around europe. For 2016, there will be 6 BoM tournaments: Madrid, Annecy, Strasbourg, London, Paris, and Brussels.
Each BoM stage functions with the same prize distribution and tournament schedule.



The BOM schedule:

 

  • Four big tournaments called Main Events:

-> 1 in Legacy & 1 in Standard on Saturday.
-> 1 in Modern & 1 in Sealed on Sunday.

  • Trials
  • Many side events in all formats you can imagine, with a few surprises to be announced soon

Players who reach the Top 4 (semifinals) of a Main Event will earn a slot for the BOM Finals 2016 of the corresponding format in addition to their prizes.

For example, a players who reaches the final of a Modern Main Event will be qualified for the Modern Final.

 

The Prize Pool:

 

 

cc378c09-9677-428b-9e2e-338b848691ed

 
In addition to prizes, each Main Event will award the Top 4 Players an invitation to the BOM Finals 2016 of the corresponding format.

 

 

The Mana Points system

 

To reward regularity throughout the European BOM Tour, we are introducing a system that awards slots at the BOM Finals 2016

 

By registering for BOM Events and achieving good results, you will earn colored Mana Points, depending on the format you play.

 

Each player will have 4 Mana Points totals:

- Blue for Standard

- Black for Modern

- Red for Legacy

- Green for Sealed

 

At the end of the season, players with 1 000 points or more of a given color will be awarded a slot at the Final of the corresponding format. For example, a player who has 500 Blue Mana Points and 1 200 Red Mana Points will only qualify for the Legacy Final.

This will give players who post great finishes but missed the Top 4 a chance to compete among the best.

 

The Mana Points will be distributed as follows:

 

  • Registering for a Last Chance Trial: 10 Mana Points of the format’s color
  • Registering for a Main Event: 50 Mana Points of the format’s color
  • Quarter-finalist at a Main Event: 450 additional Mana Points of the format’s color
  • 9-16th at a Main Event: 250 additional Mana Points of the format’s color
  • 17-32nd at a Main Event: 150 additional Mana Points of the format’s color

More details concerning the date and the venue will be communicated soon.

* BoM Final Qualifiers 16 Dec 2015 News by: Stephane

 

 

BoM Final Qualifiers (BFQ) are tournaments that give players an extra opportunity to qualify for the BoM Finals, in addition to the BoM Main Events and the Mana Points system.


Indeed, each BFQ will award the winner a slot at the BoM Finals 2016, in the format in which the BFQ was held.

 

 

So as to maintain the greatest level of organization, BFQs will only be run by Organizers owning a Brick and Mortar Store with WPN level Advanced or Advanced Plus.

Each organizer can run a maximum of 1 BFQ per format.

 

 

Here are the preliminary conditions to request organization of a BFQ:

  • Having organized 4 BoM Trials in a given format, none having been cancelled OR;
  • Having been a vendor at a 2016 BoM event

Please note that neither the TO nor the judge may play in the Final Qualifier. If that happens, the Final Qualifier will be automatically invalidated by Wizards of the Coast and qualification will be cancelled.
Note that if the TO is affiliated to a store, that store's TO can not play in the Final Qualifier either.

 

If you meet these criteria, you can fill this Google Form:

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, if you plan on running a very special tournament and you would like it to be a BoM Finals Qualifier, create a description of your tournament and why you believe it should be a BFQ and contact the BOM team at contact@bazaar-of-moxen.com.

BoM Points: Win what you like! 13 Mar 2015 News by: Kevin

 

At GP Strasbourg, we experienced a brand new way to give out prizes. It's been really successful and we have decided to run it at all our events. The system is easy:

 

Instead of fixed prizes you may not be thrilled about, you will earn BoM points at ALL Side Events.
Yes, ALL Side Events: This includes Friday Trials and 8-player tournaments.

 

BoM Points can be converted into the boosters, singles or goodies that YOU like
Check our selection of top singles and exclusive goodies in our Prize Wall section


Points can be accumulated through the week-end
You don't need to choose a prize immediately. You can keep them throughout the whole week-end to be eligible to even better prizes.


Team with your friends
You can combine your BoM points to get better prizes.
How nice would it be that five of you share a ComicCon "Black" Planeswalkers Set?
Or that, instead of 30 individual boosters, you have a filmed brand new box of product?
Or maybe a whole case of product?

 

And if you have remaining BoM points at the end of the week-end, don't worry. Our prize wall will remain open until very late on Sunday evening!

 

Check out what's in it!

What is a Cube Draft? 31 Jan 2015 News by: Stephane

Hello everybody,

 

In this article I am going to speak to you about a casual format, but for sure my favorite one: the Cube Draft!!!

 

The origins of the cube:


To date, there were only some official tournaments in cube as the invitational 2007 and worlds 2012 but globally the cube remains a format of casual game. It's still very popular worldwide. The cube groups all coolest cards of Magic. Very popular cards having made history of this game. Many players have already gone up their own cube to be able to meet and play between friends.

The Cube was inspired by formats older as:

 

  • The lion : The set of cards forms  a library. Every card can be played as land. In this case, it produces a mana of a color of the card, or a colorless mana if it has no color.
  • Tower: we have a library as well as 5 heaps of basic grounds: one of plain, one of island, one of the swamps, one of mountain and one of forest. Every time we should dig up, to reveal or to make any action on the card of the top of the library, the player who makes the action can use the pile of lands to replace the top of the library.
  • Wagic: if you hear about wagic it is about the older name of the cube.

As the cube, these formats were created by players, to bring a variety in the way of playing Magic the Gathering.These formats include the funniest aspects of Magic, combining elements so much Constructed as the Limited.

  • The Cube:

The Cube is an assembly the best cards of Magic, put together, to create a funny and format. It is a singleton format, it means that every card is present only in a single copy. The number of present cards in a cube is variable but it is advisable to have a minimum of 360 cards (8 players X 3 boosters X 15 cards). More cards you have,  more  possibilities you have too, but the average "powerlevel" of the cards  will fall. Generally, it's better to balance colors between them in the distribution of cards not to favor a color more than another one. We count several types of cube who differ by the limitations which we impose during the construction:

  • The cube " powered ": who presents P9 (Black Lotus, Mox Emerald, Mox Jet, Mox Pearl, Mox Ruby, Mox Sapphire, Ancestral Recall, Time Walk, Time Twister) and other cards quite so powerful (Sol ring, Mind Twist, Mana Drain, Library of Alexandria, Skullclamp, Grim Monolith, Mana Crypt and Mana Vault)
  • The classic cube: do not present type Powered's cards quoted above but it has access to all other cards without distinction of rarity.
  • The cube Pauper: contains only commons.
  • The cube Peasant: contains only commons and uncos.

 

How can we play cube?

 

The cube draft rather in 8 ( individual ) or in 6 (2 teams of three players). It is however possible to drafter in 4 to make a 2 two headed giant or play it in sealed  in 1 v 1 etc.... As a classic draft, the players will open 3 boosters of 15 cards, which they will pass to the left, to the right then to the left. They will have to create a deck of 40 cards minimum, included lands. Even if special lands (Fetchlands, Shocklands, Manlands) are present in boosters, basic lands are supplied during the construction of the deck to complete decks. With this deck they will face other players during 3 rounds in the best of 3 games.

 

What can look like a deck of cube?


In the cube you can play any kind of deck: aggressive, control or combo if the construction of the cube allows it. You can create original decks and in your idea or reconstitute old decks of standard, of extended, of modern or of legacy. So you will have the opportunity during the draft to recreate a UR twin, a reveillark combo, a birthing pod with a lot of different creatures or simply a red mono.

The choices of construction are very wide and the possibilities multiple.
