Swiss standings is the way DCI reporter handles it. So if I go into the top 8 in 1st seed, and lose in the first round, I will end up in 5th place.

Matt,

It appears that the Apprentice (.dec) versions of the decks may lack Merchant Scroll.

Thanks for getting them posted so quickly.

Email Evan at topdecks@starcitygames.com any problems and he can take care of it. I don't have access to the database to be able to fix those things.

So we've got this nice big thread here, but I can't seem to find the name of the winner. CTRL F didn't even help me.

Who the hell won?

I don't want to know if two people split, I want to know who's name goes next to "First Place."

Owen and I split without determining a winner, with the gentlemanly agreement that when someone asked us if we won, we should say yes. I'd like to think we're co-champions. It would have been a good final bout but with less than an hour to conduct the game before the venue kicked us out, as well as myriad other reasons, we decided that ten rounds of magic were enough for the day.

Boo!  I was waiting to hear about an epic Steak and Shake finals!  Of course, the downside would be you are eating at Steak and Shake Smile 

Semi on topic: Wasn't there like an Applebees finals in some east coast tournament in 04?

Only because the TO started the tournament at 2:00 PM. That's the only tournament I have head judged that has had to have the finals in a place other than the venue.

Proxy Rules[/b]:
There are two types of acceptable proxies for use at these events. The first and most basic is taking a basic land card and writing the details of the card on it. The second method is to take a card that shares some of the characteristics with the card that is being proxied and erase any characteristics that do not match, replacing them with the correct characteristics.

All proxies must have the following text neatly printed, using a extra fine point sharpie. Ball point pens may not be used:
• The full name of the card (no abbreviations or nicknames)
• Correct casting cost of the card including all colored mana symbols
• All relevant/game effecting text

When choosing what card to use as the base for an erased proxy players must follow these rules:
• The mana cost of the base spell must be the same as the card being proxied.
• The type of the card being proxied must be the same as the base card.
• The P/T of a creature being proxied must be the same as the base creature P/T
• When proxying a creature it may be difficult to find a creature where all characteristics match. In this case, mana cost is the most important, followed by the P/T, followed by the subtype. Any characteristics that do not match must be erased and corrected.
• The art box, card name, and text box must be totally erased. White out may not be used for this as it affects the stiffness of the card and may mark it.
• When adding text to the card do not use a ball point pen. A extra fine point sharpie is the best thing to use. A ball point pen can cause indentations on the card marking it.
• For clarity reasons, the use of cards with the new card frame is strongly encouraged

Examples:
• Welding Jar or Spellbook can be used for a Mox or Black Lotus
• Disarm could be used for an Ancestral Recall
• Train of Thought for a Time Walk
• Counsel of the Soratami for a Timetwister.

How to Erase a Card:
Acetone and a cotton ball or q-tip works well, as does a pencil/ink eraser (the white/grey split type) using the grey side. Before erasing the card, take masking tape and tape off all the areas that you don't want erased for a clean edge. It will take time, but it will come off. 

Directions
For directions we recommend using Mapquest

Trading:
StarCityGames.com is the only dealer authorized to buy/sell/trade cards on both days of this event. While trading is fine, please note that buying/selling cards with anyone except for our authorized dealer, or solicting to do so elsewhere, is strictly forbidden at this event. Failure to obey this rule may result in both the buyer and the seller being removed from the event without refund, and banned from attending future events.

We do not allow either of those for proxies at the SCG P9 Series.

-Matt

Thank you for the clarification.

Just wondering...Why are non-regular issue card backs not allowed in an opaque backed sleeve (i.e., undetectable), while cards that have been slightly altered in their thickness through thorough erasing, according to the suggestions for proxy creation on your website, are allowed? I would think that those would be more detectable during a game than what you don't allow. Can you clarify your reasons for this? Of course, it's your SCGP9 tournament rules to do with as you please. I'm just curious as to the reasons.

TestDrive

There are some sleeves that are listed as opaque and are really semi opaque and can be seen through. In addition to this, we want proxies clearly identifiable as proxies, so that judges can easily tell how many a player has when doing a deck check.

-Matt

That said, all TO's have different expectations. Many are adopting SCG's standards, which you can find right on their Vintage tournament announcements. I've never heard of stuff like World Champ/Pro Tour cards being illegal as proxies. Same with Collector Edition P9.
We do not allow either of those for proxies at the SCG P9 Series.

The rude part would be, that your response time to verbal questions from your opponents should decrease because you actually don't hear them.
And it is for this reason we do not allow people to listen to iPods etc at our events.

•   The full name of the card (no abbreviations or nicknames)
•   Correct casting cost of the card including all colored mana symbols
•   All relevant/game effecting text

When choosing what card to use as the base for an erased proxy players must follow these rules:
•   The mana cost of the base spell must be the same as the card being proxied.
•   The type of the card being proxied must be the same as the base card.
•   The P/T of a creature being proxied must be the same as the base creature P/T
•   When proxying a creature it may be difficult to find a creature where all characteristics match. In this case, mana cost is the most important, followed by the P/T, followed by the subtype. Any characteristics that do not match must be erased and corrected.
•   The art box, card name, and text box must be totally erased. White out may not be used for this as it affects the stiffness of the card and may mark it.
•   When adding text to the card do not use a ball point pen. A extra fine point sharpie is the best thing to use. A ball point pen can cause indentations on the card marking it.
•   For clarity reasons, the use of cards with the new card frame is strongly encouraged

Examples:
•   Welding Jar or Spellbook can be used for a Mox or Black Lotus
•   Disarm could be used for an Ancestral Recall
•   Train of Thought for a Time Walk
•   Counsel of the Soratami for a Timetwister.

How to Erase a Card:
Acetone and a cotton ball or q-tip works well, as does a pencil/ink eraser (the white/grey split type) using the grey side. Before erasing the card, take masking tape and tape off all the areas that you don't want erased for a clean edge. It will take time, but it will come off.

Entry Fee:
$30.00 - Credit cards are not accepted at the event site. Anyone wishing to use a credit card to pay for their tournament entry must preregister. Please remember that preregistration closes on the Thursday before the event at 9:00 AM.

Quote from: The UTR
If the head judge determines that a player is using non-English–language cards and/or misprints to create an advantage by using misleading text or artwork, that player will be subject to the appropriate provisions of the DCI Penalty Guidelines.

That is why it is cheating.
