LAST WEEK ON TRIBAL APOCALYPSE...

  • Event Number: Week 646 BE
  • Date: June 17
  • Attendance: 4
  • Rounds: 3
  • Subformat: Legacy
  • Winner: -DiamondDust- with Goblin
  • Runner-up: Deonmag with Zombie
  • Tribes: Devil, Goblin, Kobold, Zombie
  • Event link (with all players, pairings, standings, decks, and results): here it is

 The smallest Legacy event, two classic tribes on top. Let's see how they look like these days in the most ancient of our current Tribal Wars events in rotation. First, the Goblins by -DiamondDust-. Most recent featured member is Battle Cry Goblin from Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. All the other Goblins in the list are from the last decade at best. The deck is monored with a strong acceleration factor provided by support cards like Burning-Tree Emissary and Simian Spirit Guide, with Manamorphose essentially allowing the deck to run 56 cards.

 

 And now the Zombies by undead aficionado Deonmag. In their case, we see as latest additions to the lineup Headless Rider from Innistrad: Crimson Vow and Champion of the Perished from Innistrad: Midnight Hunt. This is a more whimsical list compared to the extremely streamlined Goblins, and includes a lot of one-ofs, as is Deonmag's style, as well as flavorful, Commander-oriented cards like Zombie Apocalypse.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

 Just to remind you of a few things:

 The Up-and-Coming Virtual Plaque: When a tribe wins an event for the first time ever (losing Unhallowed status), its pilot will get bragging rights.

 The New Kids on the Block Imaginary Commemorative Plate: When a new tribe is introduced in the game, or reaches enough members to be played as a proper tribe (i.e. at least 3 members, so you can build a deck that features 4 copies of each plus 8 Changeling creatures), the first player to score a match win with it will get everyone's respect. You'll need a hard win, not a BYE or a win by no-show of your opponent. Tribes currently eligible: none. 

 The Hamtastic Trophy: The Biodiversity distinction dedicated to the memory of Erik Friborg is awarded to each player who registers the most different tribes (except Human, Elf and Goblin) during the year.

 The Top Players Lockout: Every time a Top Player (either a Google Era Top 8, an Ultimate Champion/Tribal Player of the Year, or a seasonal Top 8) will end undefeated in a specific format, they will not be allowed to register the same tribe and deck in that format again for 3 events (i.e. they'll have to register a different deck three times before coming back to the undefeated one). In some cases, specific combo or archetype-defining cards will also be locked out. A list of the current lockouts is maintained here.

 We're on Discord! Join us from here, chat about tribal things with other tribal players and arrange tribal games on MTGO all week long! (Or your can just keep using our Google Sheets bulletin board).
