TMD OPEN 18- APRIL 22, 2017- Oakville, CT(Official Thread)

  • Information and contests can be found here:

  • Since this is on Amonkhet prerelease weekend, curious what the policy is for those cards. Are they not legal and this format is lame duck on arrival? Can we proxy them? Can we have those proxied in addition to the normal 15?

    Just asking because if this was held on Aether Revolt prerelease weekend but we couldn't play Ballista/Push it would feel pretty silly.

  • Are collector's edition cards acceptable as proxies?

  • Allowing Amonkhet cards sure would make this a lot more exciting.

    Hey Mike,
    Head Judge CJ Stambaugh posted this prior to the last event.

    I think the key text is "1) I do not care what the front or back of the card looks like, so long as it is indistinguishable from a traditional magic card in regards to size and material, specifically when it is sleeved. This includes things like CE cards that have been clipped and TCG player proxy cards."

    So, I believe he only allowed CE cards that were clipped to have the same rounded corners as regular cards. That said, I don't want to speak for him, so feel free to contact him on facebook for a more direct answer.

  • @iamfishman I'll do that, thanks for the reply!

  • Attendance will be capped at 140 and there are 40 spots left. If you plan on attending, please let me know to reserve a spot.


  • In the facebook poll there was a clear message sent. The consensus is "no" to Amonkhet cards so they will not be legal.

  • Roughly 10 spots left!!! We have to cap this event at 140, so if you are not yet on the prereg list, please let me know asap. We are hoping to not have to turn anyone away at the door.

    @iamfishman I can't go, so you can take my name off and give it to someone else. Sorry for not letting you know sooner. I'm working a lot right now and I already have to take time off for my son's birthday (which is also very close and another reason I can't go). I wish I could though, it was great last time.
