    Default Worst Deck App Tournament

    I am going to host a non-conventional tourney with a idea similar to JYorder's previous random deck tourney. I believe we are all good at optimizing a deck and winning with it. Now I would like to turn this around and see if we can instead create a very bad deck, and how we can optimize the strategy when forced to play a poorly-built, uncohesive deck. So in this tourney, you will be tasked with 1) creating a very bad deck, and 2) try to win with a very bad deck created by someone else. Accordingly there will be two tourney winners, the player who created the worst deck, and the player who can win the most with these bad decks.

    Sign up:
    1. Sign up start from now and ends in 5/11
    2. To sign up, choose a faction, post the worst deck you can think of with that faction, and your app ID.
    3. Factions can be chosen only once, first com first serve. You can choose the faction first and post your deck later before the tourney starts.
    4. Below are restrictions with deckbuilding.
    1) Max 6 of any common unit (including starters).
    2) Max 1 merc champ (excluding Rallul of course).
    3) Filth banned (I cannot think of any deck doing worse than mutantless filth)
    4) Owls familiars are banned (worst merc common hands down).

    Tourney:
    1. Tourney starts 5/12
    2. Each player will be randomly assigned a faction/deck that was submitted by another contestant. Players will be put into smaller groups (4-5 players per group) and play against each other in 3-day matches.
    3. The two players with most wins in each group will advance to the next round. In addition, the two "deck" with LEAST wins in each group will also advance to the next round.
    4. Tie-breakers are head-to-head, if there are 3 or 4-way ties, everyone/deck will advance.
    5. In the next round, players will be randomly assigned to a new deck (from the worst decks that passed through the previous round) and play against each other. The two players with the most wins, and the two decks with the least wins will advance to the final round.
    6. In the final round, 3 games will be played to determine the best player and the worst deck!

    This is the first time I am hosting a tourney so I do expect some hiccups along the way, so apologies in advance if thins don't go too smoothly. Also special thanks to Robert to help flesh out the idea.

    First round results are out. Players and decks that advance are marked with (*). For the decks PE and CG are tied at 3-3 but PE advances because it lost to CG (i.e. worse than CG). Interestingly, 3 of players also had their submitted decks advanced into the second round. Maybe we will see a double champion in this tourney.

    lcanela(*)..................CG.....3-3
    rdebruys83.............FK(*).....2-4
    vitoy(*).....................JE......5-1
    Nadhir 99(*)...............PE(*)......3-3
    Ithamar Conkey.......SE(*)......2-4
    jijin.......................SO(*)......2-4
    snalgo(*)...................VG......4-2

    Below are decks assignment for the second round. This will be another round robbin, but since there will be only 3 matches, I think this time we do 3-day matches to move things faster.

    lcanela............SE....2-1
    vitoy...............PE....0-3
    Nadhir..............FK....2-1
    snalgo.............SO....2-1

    Lcanela, Nadhir 99 and snalgo all advances due to 3-way tie. PE will advance along with FK and SO. SE is out because it beat both FK and SO in the first round.

    For the final round, each player will play two decks and play against each other twice so each MU will appear twice. Below is the deck assignment and match schedule.

    lcanela: PE, SO
    Nadhir: FK, PE
    snalgo: SO, FK

    lcanela(PE) vs Nadhir 99(FK)
    lcanela(SO) vs snalgo(FK)

    Nadhir 99(PE) vs lcanela (SO)
    Nadhir 99(FK) vs snalgo(SO)

    snalgo(SO) vs lcanela(PE)
    snalgo(FK) vs Nadhir 99(PE)

    winning player and losing deck are bolded

    Final results:
    1st: snalgo: 3-1
    2nd: Nadhir 99: 2-2
    3rd: lcanela: 1-3

    1st: FK(submitted by lcanela): 1-3
    2nd: SO(submitted by vitoy): 2-2
    3rd: PE(submitted by snalgo): 3-1

    Congrats to lcanela for creating the worst deck!

    Makeinda Ru
    Kadara
    Naan-Nashi

    5xBow Grounder
    4xLioness

    Squishy units, and no common that can survive a single wound for Naan to jump onto.

    EDIT: Changed Shikwa to Mak, realizing how many 1-life commons there are going to be.

    Let's see how Elien does without his warriors.

    Snalgo

    PE

    Holleas
    Rahlee
    Khan Queso

    3x Archer
    6x fencer
    5x vermin


    Also, since there are only 7 contestants in this tourney, I suggest that we do a round robbin with single group and 7-day games (i.e. you play 6 games at a time). Then top 4 players and bottom 4 decks go to second round of round robbin, finally top 2 players/bottom 2 decks go to final. Does this sound good to everyone?
