:king:Aether Revolt King of the Hill:king:
Current King: NA due to playoffs

Sign up below in a post...

AER Playoff Seeding

1. tmp_tmp
2. gimmickman
3. divinevert



If you think you can beat all of NGA (Steam), become the King of the Hill. Hold your title and become this season's overlord!

Just wanted to start a different sort of competitive magic on here. The concept is simple. Sign up to battle the current champ. Duel. Winner stays. Casual setup, Competitive games.

Play best of 3 games using one deck per match. Both players stream on twitch or youtube it, if possible. No sideboards. As soon as a match is over, another may begin immediately or later. King can switch decks from match to match. After 3 days without playing, power will revert back to the previous king if no one attempts to set up another match. In such an event, the king will go in the box as challenger when they are ready (#1 on the list).

Sign up on here to secure your spot as a challenger (in a post below).Challenge the current king in the order of sign up. Current challenger has 24 hours to contact king for match time or may be skipped. If you lose a match, you only need to wait for one more match to happen before challenging again. Challenge with any deck you want. If you are skipped, just post to reclaim your spot at the top when ready.

I will update this OP with king status, stats, etc... as often as possible. However, you can check the sign up order and keep playing matches as often as you can. Make sure to post match results on here and any links to twitch or youtube videos.

Disclaimer: If anything unusual (disconnects, bugs, etc...)comes up please use Kryder's tournament rules (showdown) to guide you. https://www.reddit.com/r/magicduels/com ... b_round_2/

One week before the new set comes out, the top 3 kings based on total wins as King and challenging the hill will be counted (Tiebreaker: 1st. to a given point total). 2nd and 3rd will play. Winner will earn the right to play the 1 seed for the title of season Overlord, as well as starting the next season as king. Those 2 matches will be 5 games instead of 3, using a different deck each game. Any decks may be used.

Climb the hill and hoist your banner! Defend the hill and grow your legend. Will anyone win 5 in a row? 10?

Here. Just challenge the king in your post, determine whether anyone is up before you by checking the OP and glancing through previous posts in the thread, and since you're up, pm the current king to set up a time to play.

There's just one problem, though. I'm pretty sure you play on xbox, but this is for steam here. Back up and go challenge divinevert (currently king) in the xbox version of the thread.

They are smart to acknowledge yours as the only true claim to the throne, Lord Otrisk, first of his name, King of the Steam.

I wouldn't know the first thing about streaming and don't care to, nor am I especially competitive. Enjoy your monarchy.

Don't care to know. To me streaming is incredibly vain and egotistical, to assume anyone wants to see me play, much less hear me or anything else going on around my house. It's possibly the silliest thing to ever happen to gaming as far as I'm concerned.

Umm yeah it's a random video on the internet. If anyone streams due to ego or vanity, they have issues. Streaming spreads ideas, play strategy, and encourages more players to actually play the game, ideally.
