Sorry for the long delay in getting this started... I've been working days and nights for the past 3 months and finally have a reprieve long enough that I'm willing to get all this prepared again. Following is my boilerplate sports league season introduction, with changes marked in red. As always, new participants are very welcome to join. I hope all our other participants can attest to the fun that this league has been over the past 8 years. Participants Turgy22 - Arabian Nights Melkor - Return to Ravnica Spiderman - Battle for Zendikar Rokapoke - The Dark Mooseman - Urza's Legacy Oversoul - Weatherlight We'll be using the same rules as last season, except roster limits will be expanded to 70 cards after the draft. Minimum deck size is and will forever remain fixed at 40 cards. If anyone wants to switch decks with one of the available unused decks found in this spreadsheet, they're welcome to do so. Also, if anyone wants to scrap their deck and start over, they can do so. You'll receive four boosters* from four different sets of your choosing and maintain your spot in the draft. Obviously, you'll have consistency problems with a four-booster card pool, but it could be manageable if you open good stuff and find people willing to trade. Everyone gets to choose a booster pack for the upcoming draft. All sets are available to choose from up to and including Oath of the Gatewatch. All the boosters I create will contain 1 rare, 3 uncommons and 11 commons - no basic lands or varying pack sizes. Mythic rares will show up, but timeshifted and premium (foil) cards will not. Everyone can post their choice of booster here. Like last season, I don't want the draft to contain two of the same booster. If I get multiple PMs with the same set, I'll ask one of the players to choose another. "Free agent" cards are available to pick up at any time from now until the draft begins. Just make a swap by dropping a card on your roster and picking one listed as a Free Agent. Once the draft starts, everyone needs to wait until it's over and can then continue making FA acquisitions once their rosters are down to the 70-card limit. There will be a priority set on free agent claims made by more than one player in a 24-hour period. Immediately after the season starts, any free agent card that's been a free agent for three seasons (as indicated by the "3" next to it in the spreadsheet) will be permanently dropped from the league. The current priority for free agent claims is as follows: 1. Mooseman 2. Rokapoke 3. Spiderman 4. Melkor 5. Turgy22 6. Oversoul During the season, we will continue voting for active cards to be selected for permanent retirement. After each game, each player can vote for one of their opponent's cards as that deck's "Most Valuable Card". Once a card reaches 12 votes, it will be slated to retire at the end of that season and enter into the CPA Sports League Hall of Fame. Votes will continue to be tracked in the master spreadsheet. The current leaders for retirement are as follows (I just recounted all the votes, so these results might not completely match with the spreadsheet from last season): 5 - Volrath's Stronghold (Turgy22) 3 - Cursed Scroll (Melkor) 3 - COP: Green (Spiderman) 3 - Wurmcoil Engine (Turgy22) 3 - Trigon of Corruption (Spiderman) 3 - Simoon (Rokapoke) 3 - Wrath of God (Mooseman) The following cards have 2 votes: Befoul, Stir the Pride, Thunderblade Charge And 1 vote: Terror, Evincar's Justice, Caravan Escort, Dauthi Slayer, Humility, Jodah's Avenger, Chronozoa, Cancel, Thorn Elemental, Crabapple Cohort, Ghitu Slinger, Thunderblade Charge, Anaba Shaman, Godhead of Awe Also, a reminder that cards drafted in the upcoming draft can not have votes cast for them. These cards are shown in bold in the master spreadsheet. Everyone is free to make any trades from now until the season begins (including during the draft). You can trade cards OR upcoming draft picks, though if you trade picks, make sure you're specific about exactly which choice is being traded, since there are multiple picks in all rounds except the first. I think that's everything we need to know to get started. Any questions, comments or suggestions, post here. *Note that this will be expanding to five next season. The formula is total card pool for the season divided by 15... in case anyone hasn't figured that out by now.
