Castle 2020 Gallery

Alpha Castle 2019 was a lot of fun with almost 100 players, so I wanted to repeat it.

Alpha Castle returned to Castle Frankenstein as Alpha Castle 2020, with 30 players on August 16th.
Corona required some limitation on the amount of players.

This page has 2 parts:
1) Rules of the event and how ante worked
2) Deck gallery


Rules, ante and prizes:
The mainevent on Sunday had a unique ruleset (4 Workshop, 2 Strip Mine, Artwork Reprints, IE/CE allowed, Fallen Empires allowed, modern rules) with some Ante cards allowed. But it was important for me that no player will be asked to give their own property away for ante, not even temporarily. See the “Prizes” Tag below for details how that will work.

At the start of the event, every player receives an amount of marked Revised or 4th Edition cards. These cards will be used as ante pool. Before every match, you chose a card from your opponents’ ante pool. The winner of the match wins both cards. Whoever loses game 1 may also decide to “raise the ante by 1” for the rest of the match.

At the end of the event, you can trade in those Revised/4th cards for sweet beta and similar cards:
* Beta Contract from Below to whoever has most ante cards
* Beta Channel to whoever has most wb Channels
* Beta Craw Wurm to whoever has most wb Craw Wurms
At some point, through the use of Demonic Attorney, Contract from Below etc, one may lose all their ante cards. In that case, players receive another batch of cards as ante, Revised Basiclands and Mons Raiding Goblins, giving you a second chance to win.

Additionally, several Ante-cards are allowed with event-specific errata: Contract from Below(1), Rebirth, Demonic Attorney, Darkpact, Jeweled Bird(1).

Ante cards will have an errata.
Each player may ante the top card of their library a random card from their antepool. If a player does, that player’s life total becomes 20.

Contract from Below: (restricted to 1)
Discard your hand, ante the top card of your library, a random card from your antepool, then draw seven cards.

Demonic Attorney:
Each player antes  the top card of their library a random card from their antepool.

You own target card in the ante. Exchange that card with the top card of your library.
Exchange target card in the ante with a random card from your antepool.

Jeweled Bird: (restricted to 1)
{T}: Ante Jeweled Bird. If you do, put all other cards you own from the ante into your graveyard, then draw a card.
Every player will be provided one Chronicles Jeweled Bird at the start of the day.
{T}: Put Jeweled Bird into the ante pool. If you do, put another card from the ante into your antepool, then draw a card.

Bronze Tablet and Tempest Efreet are banned.
