I've been thinking of doing a mini-MTG tournament in Magic Arena since I play it so much. I'm not sure of the structure yet, and we might not be able to stream it, but we did one a few years ago for Rocket Arena and it seemed like that worked out. So if you're interested, please let me know your MTGA name in the comments here and if we get enough people I'll try to make some brackets up.

This will be pretty low stakes and I'm still deciding on a format, but we'd probably either do a regular old standard tournament style (best of three, coin flip, sideboards and all) or make it easier and do a Brawl tournament with some kind of banlist for commanders (and maybe just ban Ugin from decks entirely). If you're interested reply below!

Sign me up! My arena name is fischer5#52969. I'm good with any format but standard or brawl would be best (don't know about everyone else, but my card pool for historic is a lot smaller).

fr0y0#90673 - I haven't played much BO3 or Brawl, so this would be refreshing either way. Sign me up!

Bacon Train#09264 - Standard works best (my historic card pool is tiny). I would love to see more MTG content on the site, so hopefully this can come together.

I am ultraman324#03567, I think standard would be the best but I can find a way to get a couple wild cards to create a brawl deck I have been looking at.

Booya!! I was stoked when you mentioned this on the DOOM Eternal stream. Count me in.

My arena username is: cugabuh#73201

Similar to others in this thread, I prefer standard, but I also have a couple mediocre brawl and historic decks ready to go if that's where we land.

EDIT: And regardless of whether or not this actually happens, folks in this thread are welcome to shoot me friend requests in Arena. I can't get any of my actual friends to get into MTG, so it'd be nice to play with y'all instead of the randomness that is quick play queue.

I am in, user id is Tebunker#03805 , but I am in your friends list in game Rorie and totally down.

May I suggest we consider either a pauper or artisa6 tourney? Might get more people that way too. Lower barrier to entry.

Pontiak#14911 Sign me up! Wondering if folks would want to do a Historic tourney too (I like Historic more than Standard because more variety)

Awesome I'd love to play some duders, it's a lot less annoying to lose to people that aren't randoms.

Some for fun not too competitive games with my terrible collection should be fun. I would be down, depending on timing.

I'd be game for this. I play mostly Historic, but would join in for pretty much anything.

I would be down for historic brawl or something like common/uncommon only. Regular standard or historic is fine, but some rules/ristrictions to spice things up would make it more interesting.

Just don't touch the Yarokmonicon. :X

Anyone who is newer to MTG Arena, should check out the redeemable codes for bunches of free packs from the various sets. I got to crack about 25 packs last night after I found out about it.

I'd be interested. I mostly play Historic, but I should be able to put together a reasonable Standard deck if needed. Not too interested in Brawl.

I'd be down for this as well. I'm also all for any restrictions, especially for the sake of making it new player friendly.

This sounds fun. I mostly play standard or limited but would be up for anything like historic/commander/card bans.

I only have my weird Boros cycling deck for standard and nothing at all for Brawl or Historic, but I'd be down for a Standard tournament.

This sounds like fun and I've been meaning to get more involved with the GB community for a while now! I don't have a brawl deck but I'm sure I could slap together something fun and janky if that's what we end up doing.

OK, I'm cutting off the entrants as anyone who's posted above this comment. Given the number of people involved we might not be able to get all of these games played before Strix comes out, but we'll try and make this a just-for-fun tournament without much in the way of awards (maybe some Premium months for the winners). If we manage to make it work we'll try it again in the future with some merch or something more substantial as prizes.

Keep an eye on this thread; I'll try to make the pairings tomorrow and you'll have until the end of the weekend to get the first round done!

No Caption Provided

Please find your name and your opponent on this list, friend them in Arena, and find a good time to get your match together. Make sure that you select TOURNAMENT MATCH from the challenge menu option. This will be a STANDARD, BEST OF 3 ROUND tournament (so be sure you have cards in your sideboard!). If you are looking for deck ideas I recommend MTGAZONE. There are a number of budget decks in there that might be handy for you! You do not have to use the same deck every round; feel free to use anything that's Standard-legal. This is ALL FOR FUN (the top 3 will get some Premium time, maybe!) so don't take it too seriously and try to BE COOL about stuff.

No Caption Provided

You can sync up in this thread, or if you join the Giant Bomb Discord you can use the Tournament-Zone channel over there to get in touch with people as you like. Or use PMs on the site! Do what you want! Let me know if you have any questions and try to get your first round matches done by TUESDAY!

Not being able to send people DMs unless they follow you is probably a good move for the site, but makes getting into contact with people for something like this difficult. If you see this @rayeth, I followed you so send me a DM when you want to play. As long as it's not the middle of the night EST, I'm probably good for it.
