What is The Rogue Master Brewer?

The Rogue Master Brewer will be a monthly competition sponsored by that will challenge your deck building skills by choosing a specific card(s) and/or format as your starting point for constructing a creative, innovative, fresh deck.

Grand Prize: (1x) Special Edition “Rogue Master Brewer” Playmat

How will the Deck Entries be Judged?

At the end of the competition, prizes will be awarded to the person(s) with the most interesting decks based upon the following criteria:

Creativity and Originality: This is sponsored by The Rogue Deckbuilder, although personally I have nothing against net decks and net decking, was started to spark interest in innovative exciting decks.

Synergy and Flow: Do the pieces work and flow well with the challenge card? Is the challenge card the focal point of the deck?

Competitiveness: was founded on the premise of competition. I consider myself a “Johnny/Spike” looking for new angles to construct my arsenal specifically for competitive play. Each deck should keep this in mind: Can it compete in the competitive environment?

Fun Factor: Although competition is a major focal point of deck construction, the reason we play this game is ultimately for FUN. My favorite decks have always been decks that do not ignore this and relentlessly pursue the entertainment value of a deck.

Judging the winners: At the end of the allotted time for deck construction, members of the staff will choose either EIGHT or SIXTEEN (depending on number of entrees) decks to move on to the Master Brewer tournament bracket, where they will be randomly pitted against another Top 8/16 deck. The community will then vote over the period of two(2) days for their favorite deck. Voting will take place on our Facebook page, our Webpage and our Reddit page and then be totaled. The deck with the most votes moves on to the next round. At the end of the tournament, one deck and will be crowned “The Rogue Master Brewer” and awarded Grand Prize. The runner up will also receive a prize as well as one honorable mention from the entire pool of submissions.
