Battle of the Gladiators (Finished)

on Sat Mar 05, 2016 6:33 pm
Battle of the Gladiators





Hello and welcome to a spectacularly fantastic idea that's virtually bound to explode in a giant fireball of excessive rage and fury! Taking the deepest desires of every duelist, and merging every single sadistic fantasy into a single, convoluted, clusterfuck of a tournament is just the simple dream of man--and I'll be damned if I can't watch and/or participate in a battle royale consisting of scantily-clad adults try and strangle each other with banana peels.
Can you endure the infinite struggle to prove your worth?



The tournament is simple, albeit long:
There will be a grand total of 5 rounds--4 different qualifying rounds, and 1 final round. Each round will host its own unique challenged designed to push the limits and skill of each participant involved. Every single round will be conducted via Single Elimination, with the top 4 duelists in the first 4 Qualifying Rounds facing off in one last free-for-all to prove their talent.



DECKLISTS WILL ONLY BE REVEALED 1 ROUND AT A TIME

__________________________________________________________________________


Round 1 (Qualifier) Decklists
Dino Rush | Fiend Rush | Robo Rush | Warrior Rush | Zombie Rush
__________________________________________________________________________


Round 2 (Qualifier) Decklists
Curse of Anubis | Regina septemvittata | The One True Pharaoh | The Wicked Ones

__________________________________________________________________________


Round 3 (Qualifier) Decklists
The Good | The Bad | The Ugly

__________________________________________________________________________


Round 4 (Qualifier) Decklists
The Gentle Darkness | Slacker's Paradise

__________________________________________________________________________


Round 5 (The Finals) Decklists
The Mirror of Cancer

__________________________________________________________________________

I choose Zombie Rush. It was posted that it was available. It does not have me listed as Zombie Rush in the OP. Clearly the post is here in the quote where it said the deck was available. If I do not get Zombie Rush then I am dropping. I do not want to play in a tournament with a host that will not stick to their given word.
