Hi everybody, well it all kicks off tomorrow, hope your all ready for a weekend of old school carnage!

just a few things to bring to peoples attention:

sign up starts at 11.00, entry fee will be 5 this is to cover all the funky prizes we'll be handing out :)

one thing that was discovered last night is that the current legacy banned list on the organized play page is incorrect, both darkness blade and defender should be on the list, they were before and it looks like a mistake was made when the list was moved. they are most definitely both banned, i'm sorry if this is cutting it a bit close but they are NOT LEGAL FOR LEGACY NATIONALS, please make sure your not running them or you will be disqualified and i'd like to avoid that if at all possible.

beyond that i think all is good, any questions feel free to get in touch through the usual means.

see you soon

Since when was darkness blade banned. It was ran at the us legacy nationals like 3 months ago. In fact it was in the winning deck. A little bit annoying finding this out now seeing as its my main kill condition.

your right, this makes sod all sense. it was on the banned list before the website got changed round. am trying to get a definitive answer on this as soon as but i know it was banned in legacy during the last big update of the list :(

like i said it was allowed in us nats and im assuming if it was banned it would have been picked up when it was wrecking poeple in front of jason in person.

that's plausible, but i thought it was banned before that. will try and get an answer from the horses mouth and let everyone know as soon as i do. many apologies for any inconvenience caused but i don't want cards that degenerate running round if they shouldn't

Darkness Blade and Defender were only banned in the Extended format. They are still legal in Legacy. The current banned lists are completely the same as the old one (You can still see the old on at this link: http://www.jascogames.com/official_banned_list).

righto. cheers very much. i'm sure they were on the list, oh well i appear to have been very confused somewhere along the way. oh well ignore what i said, they are legal for this weekend (runs off to make changes to his deck to accommodate this change in the meta game)

This is correct. They were NEVER on the legacy banned list.

few makes me feel a lot better now. So has any prize support shown up or is patriots supplying it all?

oh well, defender i'm not too worried about in all honesty, with lord of the makai gone its a lot harder to loop than it used to be. darkness blade on the other hand was a huge slice of janky nastiness, especially after it was ruled that red lotus couldn't stop it. this changes things dramatically, why oh why couldn't it have been the curse broken that i was wrong about ;)
