Premodern Explorer’s League

The Premodern Explorer’s League is a recurring Webcam event with flexible game times, organized on the Premodern Online Play facebook group. The structure is copied from the “Premodern Monthly” you probably have heard of. Formats are Premodern variants.
Every season, players have 3 weeks to play 4-7 matches within a Pod to determine Pod winners. A season starts on the 15th of each month, the group matches should be finished by the 7th of the following month. After that group phase, an Elimination round will start. Pod size and advancement depends on the amount of players in a season. Deckphotos are required of the players advancing to the Elimination round.

If you’re unsure about a specific format, please ask in the facebook thread announcing the format. To save space, I do not include an overly long explanation for every format.

Premodern Brawl (Season 1: February 15th – March 14th)
Season 1 will feature Premodern Brawl:
Decks consist of 1 legendary creature as commander and 59 other cards. All cards in the deck have to match at most the color identity of your commander. A deck may not have more than one card with a unique name, except for basiclands. For example, if your commander is Jeska, Warrior Adept, your deck may consist of colorless and red cards only, but no more than one Lightning Bolt.
At the start of the game, each player puts their commander face up into the command zone. A commander can be cast from the command zone for its normal costs, plus an additional two mana for each previous time it’s been cast from the command zone this game. If your commander would be put into your library, hand, graveyard or exile from anywhere, you may return it to your command zone instead.
