Think I'm going to this. Should be a lot of players and it's at a convention place in Grand blanc.
I'd like to experience something like this, I'd also like to get a team of us to brainstorm and work on a deck together to play here. Will be standard tourney with born of the gods cards also, so will have 2 weeks to put together a deck.

Anyone else interested?

I am 'interested' in going... will have to double-check (hey Rogers!) to make sure it won't garner too much Wife Aggro.

I'm working on this myself. Wife aggro may be to high for this one. If I skip the BNG pre-release I think I'll be able to swing it though.

So who's all going to this for sure? I've told the wife and she's cool with it if I go.... But I'm certainly not interested in going alone, so... Commitments?

Only 8 black sources... I might get rid of the Nykthos and put in a couple guildgates. Especially if you ever have to side in the Hero's Downfall? Looks interesting though.

I want to try out a BANT deck also but I refuse to pay for Brimaz right now. He's way overpriced.

I'm going to bring Orzhov Midrange - http://www.mtgvault.com/higgy/decks/orz ... range-bng/

Oh and this isn't for the 5k. just something I wanted to throw together from the spoilers.

I wont be able to do the 5k. Got a room at the Hyatt and going to get some dinner and go see billy Joel at the palace.

Ya dust was thinking as much for the nyxthos but most of my creates are all red which would work out nice. But ya.. maybe drop those and put in black lands or guild gates. My black source is fairly low thou. Until I can play it some will need to tweak it some.

Have you thought about underworld connections? Seems pretty heavy on removal if you start off against a control deck. Just my thoughts, it does look kind of like a white (greenless) jund deck, going for the good stuff. Have you tested it at all on cockatrice?

Yup been testing it on Cockatrice. I keep getting land flooded though. I'm still on the fence using underworld connections. What would I drop? 2 Bile Blights for 2 Underworld Connections?

I would try cutting a Plains And a Swamp and putting in just 1 Orzhov Guidgate, cut 2 bile blights for 3 Underworld Connections, and I'd be a little concerned with the Drown in Sorrow's with your possible 12 (or more if you get elspeth going) x 1or2 toughness creatures,

I'm certainly not great at constructed brewing, but again, just my thoughts.

I like the idea of the Orzhov Guildgate. Going to give it a spin on Cockatrice and see how it turns out.

My jund deck for the 5k
I've tested a decent amount on cockatrice, and have alot of winnable matches. Aggro can give me fits game 1 but sideboard helps.

control usually the same and midrange I seem to run over.

let me know what you guys think.

btw Courser of Kruphix is amazing for mana fixing and gaining life back from shocks and Thoughtseizes.
