Description: Austrian Format (for interested gemp-users)
« on: July 17, 2015, 04:07:06 AM »
Hi guys,

if you want to allow all cards of all sets for a tournament game (except some x-listed cards) you choose EXPANDED Format - but there is a catch: some broken combos like e.g. Mumak Commander GATS and Hate are possibly... could be annoying...
wanna have a more fair game?
wanna let join most players to a tournament? (players with only cards from the fellowship block, players with only cards from the newer sets, players with nearly all cards)

I have invented a format, which makes all that possible - and this format has already been prooved in real life, in real tournaments (e.g. European Tournament in Germany 2008, and many others) - everyone liked it very much!

So, how does it work? Here's the description:


1.) ALL CARDS FROM ALL SETS ARE ALLOWED (except those listed on the x-list of Austrian Format)


     --> one side of your deck may each consist of one of the following: Cards from set 1-10 OR 7-19
     --> EXCEPTION: set 9, 14, 16, 19 and WETA COLLECTION MAY ALWAYS BE USED
     --> any kind of Alternative Ringbearer or "The One Ring" may also alwys be used
     --> only "new" sites from set 11 and later are allowed

It is that easy.
Some examples for decks in AUSTRIAN Format:

- Ringbound Hobbits (set 7-19) with Forest Nazgul (set 7-19) - this deck is also Standard (The One Ring, Isildur's bane, may be used)
- Hunter Elves (set 7-19) with Twilight Nazgul (set 1-10) - this deck is not Standard, it is not Expanded, it is Austrian Format (Wraith Collection may be used in the Nazgul-part).
- Ringbound Ranger (set 1-10) with Moria (set 1-10) - for Moria, The Balrog, Demon of Might (set 19) may be used
