I had an idea and I'd like to see if the other contest regulars would be interested.
What I propose is we try a similar format to what we did break-a-card with Duelsish rarity restrictions (max 1-of mythics, 2-of rares, but full sets of commons and uncommons), so we don't have to blow too many precious wildcards.
I'd recommend the chosen cards to be uncommons and commons.
I guess without Barney and soup judging, it wouldn't be the same thing, but it's an idea.

So is anybody interested?

Maybe. It always depends if I can find a deck I actually like playing and is somewhat successful. Usually I fail in one of those areas. I like the idea though, and I would try and come up with something.

Not too hot on rarity restrictions if the cards will just be commons/uncommon though. I see the logic, and it may be the best way. Just hate restrictions in general.

Same.... 100% interested, but I would much prefer without rarity restrictions.

I guess that the biggest problem will be testing other decks, we need to come out with some sort of voting system
Rarity restrictions? I kinda like them but with or without them count me in.

The idea with rarity restrictions was just so "testers/judges" wouldn't be forced to use their precious wildcards on jank (if it could be helped) and for a bit of Duels nostalgia I guess.
Looks like we have some interest, so I believe we can try it out.
Now, where to start?

Any suggestions?
Any card that really needs some breaking?

I don't think we can really test other decks ATM, I believe that burning UWC or RWC is too high commitment. Report on 7 or so games could be something to start and maybe we could have some judges on the build?

We must awaken the Soupcannon from its deep slumber

Since this is usually pretty janky... how about something with Ramunap Excavator?

I got just one copy of that card -So I could not pilot my own pile- ... but that card is super funky I like it a lot, I believe is one of the few cards of the set that made it all the way to the oldest formats, I have seen it in quite a few of CGB builds and its definitively a value machine.
I guess the card to pick should be either in the common rarity slot or be very popular, so we can all have access to the playset.

I actually thought about that card, CGB seems to be a big fan of it (from his videos) and I think it looks good with Fall of Thran shenanigans (although the full-set rule would be overkill since the effects don't stack)
Don't know if I have any though.

CGB ‘likes’ this card? Really?

Hmmmm... well I was thinking about going full desert shenanigans when I mentioned it, so probably jankier than anything CGB would play, but still.

At common/uncommon no ideas just yet.

Ah, cool... I’ll check it out then. Meanwhile, I agree that building around rates may be a recipe for failure, unless they are great rates.

How about: Slimefoot, the Stowaway

How about Crackdown Construct? It's deliciously terrible, colorless to keep options open, and we all own at least two. Pulled up the cards that would work with it for giggles.

As far as judging goes, would it be too much to ask a Quick Constructed run with each entry (and anyone willing to do that can judge)? Suppose it depends on how many entries there are...

I actually drafted one of those constructs but I got a pretty crap deck and probably won't win a game (only played one and I had to concede because I was late to pick up my daughter from karate class).

Do we really want to do bad cards, or should we go for something more interesting?

The torture part was the signature of this contest since Flaky was hosting them but we could make some changes. -That card is way beyond awful DCG- besides if we are throwing that kinda of deck into a quick constructed we are asking to go 0-3, and I got no problem with that as long as Barney and Soup get the same kinda of torture, but since neither of them are going to be piloting this decks we could give us some love.
I like slime foot and I haven't give it a try to the saproling tokens deck. I guess I could burn 2 WC on him -I got 2 copies ATM- yeah I vote for slime foot :D

It'd be fine if we had Wandering Fumarole in the format to pump it infinitely :( I was thinking it'd be fun alongside some combination of Walking Ballista/Dread Shade/Tomb Robber/Yahenni/Whisper.

slimefoot sounds ok, although I have seen some on the ladder and Chainwhirler hates pretty badly on tokens (and I don't like Green).

Do we have a consensus?
