Standard Tournament - April 10th

As of now, there is not enough interest for a modern tournament. We will revert back to Standard for the time being. Hopefully when Modern Masters gets released, there will be enough interests and we can do some modern tournaments.

For the next tournament, are people interested in the Modern format? I've talked to Zach and he seems very keen on the idea. Are there others in support of a Modern tournament on April 10th? If there's not enough interests for a Modern tournament, we can revert back to Standard. Please reply with your choice.

Is there any interest for this tournament? If not, I'd like to co-organize a Gatecrash draft with Justin next week.

I'm not familiar with the concept of how modern works. I thought standard was modern?

I personally really enjoy modern as there are more deck types. It can be expensive to get started as a mana base can be very expensive mainly due to Zendikar fetch lands. However, since the format is eternal, you don't have to keep buying cards. So in the long run, it's actually cheaper. Unfortunately, the format doesn't seem very popular at the moment. I'm really hoping Modern Masters will change that in the next 2 months.
