2023.04.02 14:08 totse_losername Astronomical (ticket) prices put Olympics out of reach

Astronomical prices put Olympic tickets out of reach
The sky-high price of tickets will mean attending key events at the Brisbane Olympics will be unaffordable for many Australians, according to Olympic boss John Coates.
Des Houghton 6 min read March 31, 2023 - 9:00PM
The new concept of dynamic pricing for events is “no excuse for ripping of Parisians who want to see events in their city.” Guests on #WorldThisWeek share views on the high price of tickets for sporting events like the Olympics and concerts, stressing the importance of inclusivity and accessibility to culture for all. Olympic powerbroker John Coates admits most Queenslanders will not be able to afford tickets to key events at the 2032 Brisbane Olympic and Paralympic Games.
When asked if prices to watch finals of the athletics at the Gabba or swimming at Brisbane Arena would be prohibitively expensive he said: “Correct.”
Seats at the opening and closing ceremonies would be at a premium, too.
Straight-talking Coates, the vice-president of the International Olympic Committee, said the IOC had to be “hard-headed” and steep prices were inevitable.
His comments follow uproar in Europe over prices to next year’s Paris Olympics with family tickets running to thousands of dollars and tickets to athletics and swimming finals about $3000 a double – if you are lucky enough to get them.
Coates said spectators had to pay the price for the international trend towards smaller Olympic stadiums that offered fewer seats at higher prices.

Picture: Richard Walker Andrew Liveris (left) and John Coates at the announcement of the CEO of the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Cindy Hook (centre). Picture: Richard Walker “That’s the trade-off for not having to spend as much money on venues that may not be used afterwards,” Coates said.
“You can’t justify building large venues that aren’t going to be utilized afterwards.”
Coates is up front in admitting he has no answer to soaring Olympic admission prices.
“There is no avoiding this,” he said. “The size of the venues was coming down at the direction of the IOC because we don’t want to see white elephants left behind afterwards.
“So as a consequence of that is there will be less seats available for the punters at those events (held in the main stadia).’’
Coates, one of the most influential figures in world sport, sits on the Brisbane organising committee, OCOG, and as IOC vice-president serves on the IOC’s Games Optimisation Group.
He backs the selection of the Gabba as the site for Brisbane’s main Olympic arena and says the benefits will be continue for decades after the Games are over.
While the Sydney Olympic stadium offered seating for 115,000 spectators, Brisbane will offer 50,000 at the revitalised Gabba, 8000 more than currently available for cricket and AFL matches.
It’s too early to predict the prices of seats in Brisbane, but if Paris is any guide, they will be astronomical.
Australia will send a strong team to next year’s Paris Games, which will run from July 26 to August 11. The Paralympics will follow from August 28 to September 8.
Sports fans had to go into a ballot in Paris for the right to buy the first batch of 3.25 million tickets. “Winners expressed joy when their names came out of the hat, then dismay at finding that they had to buy tickets for three separate events at up to EUR 690 ($1121) each,” Adam Sage wrote in The Times.
“It led to athletics fans buying tickets for sports such as weightlifting and volleyball too, with the overall cost often topping EUR 1,000 ($1624) for a family.
“It’s completely crazy,” Florent Lamour, who works for the French Tennis Federation, said. “For me, it’s quite simply inaccessible. As a sports fan I find it very disappointing.”
Paris organisers say there will still be thousands of tickets to minor sports for EUR 50 ($81). But critics say the organisers have broken a promise to make the games accessible to all.
Coates blames poor planning for cost blow-outs at the Gabba.
“I don’t think enough thought had gone into the scoping of that before the decision was taken. But I still support the decision.
“While there has been a blowout at the Gabba its proximity to cross-river rail made it a very (good) venue.
“And if you want to get the first cricket Test back and if you want to look after the AFL it needed to be done. Brisbane needed it. You were being left behind by the other cities; left behind by Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth in terms of cricket alone.”
He said ticket prices were high because organisers had to balance their budgets.
“Paris has been hit by the war in Ukraine and it has been affected by inflation,” he said.
“I won’t put a figure on how much over their original budget they are, but they can’t just go back to government and say you have to pick up the tab because of these other factors.
“The (organising committee) will have to try to balance it themselves, as will we.”
He said in Sydney and in London the IOC softened the blow for families by offering free seats to schoolkids at rowing events.
Coates said the London model of an independent Games delivery authority was not necessary for Brisbane 2032.
He backed the Deloitte report recommending a collective of government departments carry out the work.
The revitalisation of Woolloongabba will include an active travel corridor to South Bank and the CBD. The revitalisation of Woolloongabba will include an active travel corridor to South Bank and the CBD. “For Brisbane we don’t need to acquire sites or appropriate sites and, take control of them like London and Sydney had to,” he said.
“The Gabba and the site for Brisbane Arena (at Roma St) are already in government ownership.’’
And many others were under the control of councils.
He said there were some proposed venues on the Sunshine Coast and at Moreton Bay the government “didn’t own at the moment”.
He added: “There is not going to be any difficulties in appropriating land.
“Even the two main venues, the Gabba and the Brisbane Arena, are in what’s called Priority Development Areas and they are managed already by an entity called Economic Development Queensland and it’s got all the powers an (independent) authority would have to appropriate any adjoining land or other land you might need.” The IOC would monitor Brisbane’s progress, Coates said.
“The Olympic people (will) come in and say, ok, yes, we understand the Gabba is for cricket and for AFL but please in your scoping make sure you fulfil these requirements of World Athletics to run Olympic athletics. Please make sure your scoping includes all the IOC requirements for ceremonies.
“All of that stuff is being provided. The swimming details are being provided and it can be managed by these existing government departments who have got authority-type powers if they need them.”
Coates said he knew his position was in contrast to that of Sir David Higgins, the Queenslander knighted for delivering the 2012 London Olympics infrastructure a year early and $1bn under budget.
Higgins was critical of the decision by Annastacia Palaszczuk to run the delivery authority.
“It’s not going to work, is it,” said Sir David Higgins.
Higgins said planning had to be done at arm’s length from the government with bipartisan political support. And the taxpayer who had to pay for it had to be told what was happening every step of the way.
Sir David said he saw no signs of this happening in Queensland.
“You’ve got to have a clear brief, proper governance and an independent board so that it can work with the various sporting bodies and the IOC,’’ he said.
Moreton Bay Indoor Sport Centre planned for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic Games. “I think what is happening in Brisbane at the moment is a bit of a challenge.’’
Coates disagreed. He said there was no need “to set another bureaucracy”.
He pointed to the Sydney Olympic model.
“Do you know who ran everything there? Michael Knight. One man. Michael Knight was Minister for the Olympics and chair of the SOCOG (the Sydney Organising Committee for the Olympic Games).
“Michael was the minister responsible to Parliament.’’
Coates said Steven Miles, as Minister Assisting the Premier on Olympic Infrastructure, and Sports Minister Stirling Hinchliffe would likewise have to answer to Parliament for their decisions.
Coates said the Opposition also “had the protection of the Organising committee” including president Andrew Liveris, CEO Cindy Hook, a former Deloitte executive – “and their people and me if needs be.’’
“This will make it very transparent, absolutely.”
He said the work towards Brisbane 2032, “we call it B2032” was well underway.
“The IOC is already getting briefings monthly from B2032 on all these things,” he said.
“The IOC will have people here all the time.”
Would they be watching over the State Government departments?
“Yes,” said Coates.
“I am absolutely satisfied these projects will be completed before the Games and that they will meet the Olympic requirements.
“That’s what our objective is.’’

2023.04.02 13:43 Foyfluff [TOURNAMENT REPORT][PIONEER] RCQ Win with Enigmatic Fires at Fanboy3 Manchester

Hey folks, I won a local RCQ playing Yorion Enigmatic Fires. Then I wrote almost 4,000 words about the deck and the day and I thought you might be curious to read them! Feel free to ask me any questions you like.
Decklist: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/5521211#online
Deck Choice:
I don’t necessarily believe Enigmatic Fires is the best deck in the Pioneer format, but it is definitely the most fun deck for me to play. There are a lot of extremely powerful interactions in the deck and it does represent pretty much a free win for any deck that can’t remove enchantments, like Rakdos. The deck is almost entirely Explorer legal too (WoTC can we have Chained to the Rocks pls?) so I’ve had a lot of practice with the deck with easily over 300 matches online. That familiarity with the deck and its lines definitely paid off during the day, and I was able to find some pretty great winning moves that I probably wouldn’t have found without that experience.
Card Choices:
Okay, first off, that manabase will look very weird. I could write all day about the intricacies of the 5c Fires manabase, but suffice it to say that there’s a mix of “here’s the triomes and checklands I own / could borrow” and “actually some of these decisions might reflect specific choices I’ve made in deckbuilding.” The mana actually felt incredibly smooth though, there was only one game the entire tournament during which I had to make difficult choices regarding what I was able to cast due to mana constraints (and it was during the finals) which I would consider incredibly good for an 80 card, 5-colour deck in Pioneer.
When it comes to 1-of creatures, lists are fairly settled. My most notable decisions there are playing Gloomshrieker over Shigeki, Jukai Visionary (Gloomshrieker is the better tutor target) and playing Atraxa where some lists choose not to. I can’t believe I’m having to try and convince people to play Atraxa, but play Atraxa! She draws 3 cards and doesn’t afraid of anything.
For enchantments, I’m completely sold on Bitter Reunion as the card advantage spell of choice (over Omen of the Sea). The activated ability can be very relevant, especially to give Refliki of Kiki-Jiki hastiki to criki a tiki of aniki nonlegiki criki we contriki. There tends to be 3 spots left in the enchantments for some kind of removal spell, with popular choices including Oath of Chandra, Omen of the Forge, and Trial of Ambition. While I used to be a big fan of Trial, it does put considerable pressure on the manabase, so I decided to cut them. Omen can go upstairs, but 2 damage just isn’t enough in the format. I think Oath of Chandra is the best choice as 3 kills most early drops and doubling it with Elesh Norn or Yorion can kill most later game threats in the format. However, I didn’t own any Oath of Chandra in paper, and also wanted to respect Greasfang and Creativity, so I chose Touch the Spirit Realm which has a tonne of synergies with the deck as both an O-Ring and a Cloudshift (that can target your opponent’s creatures). However, I found I didn’t own 3 Touch the Spirit Realms, so I went for 2 and an Omen of the Sea. #justpaperthings
Rending Volleys and Radiant Flames are must-haves in the sideboard for me (WoTC can we pls have Radiant Flames in Arena?) for Spirits and Humans. Mystical Disputes are also very good against Spirits and are great for Control and Creativity too. Rest in Peace is a pretty good card for the meta generally, though if you’re not seeing much Greasefang then I don’t think they’re necessary (we have tools to beat other graveyard decks in the main, like Callous Bloodmage and a bunch of exile-based removal). I knew I would be seeing some Greasefang, so I wanted the RIPs. That just leaves a few slots for tutor targets. Koma is my choice for extra 7 drop in the side (over Dragonlord Atarka), Nimble Larcenist is great in any slower matchup. After getting to the venue, it seemed like there were a good number of Creativity and Lotus Field players, so I cut a Rending Volley for Reidane, God of the Worthy. In retrospect, I think I should have cut a Radiant Flames instead (early removal is so much more important in the aggressive matchups than Sweepers) but I was still happy with this meta call.
The decklist is heavily inspired by NJAMTG and the Enigmanifesto, and the sideboard guide as well as matchup tips therein was an incredibly useful resource for me and reduced the mental load of sideboarding massively (which is very useful for a deck that already has hundreds of interactions). I sent them $10 through PayPal for the help that this doc provided me.
The Day:
6 of us from the Patriot Games Sheffield massive traveled to Manchester to show them how Magic is played. Between us we represented Enigmatic Fires, Abzan Greasefang, MonoU Spirits, UW Spirits, Rakrifice Sacrifice, and Izzet Phoenix. I trusted all of these players to do well, and that definitely influenced my decision to run this deck in the first place (over what I would have otherwise played, MonoG Devotion) and also influenced my decision to run Touch the Spirit Realm. Having such a large group was amazing for morale and having people to chat with and decompress with between rounds, as well as having a very good understanding of what decks were being played in the room after only a couple of rounds.
It became very clear very quickly that the meta was aggressive. There were a lot of Spirits players, Control was almost nowhere to be seen, Mono Green was underrepresented, and even Rakdos Mid wasn’t making much of a showing with RakSac being more popular.
This did not bode well for me. There’s a reason our sideboard has 10 cards for MonoU Spirits and it’s not because we’re trying to make a good matchup better. Registering 5c Enigmatic Fires, I’d already decided I was happy to lose some games and just have a fun time, doing my best to cheer on the rest of my team, and seeing a bunch of Spirits players did nothing to raise my ambitions higher than that.
The Matches:
Round 1 - Sam on MonoU Spirits
Sam was one of the Sheffielders I’d brought in the car and is a good Spirits player, so I was very much prepared to lose Game 1 and have to battle it out in the sideboard games, still expecting to lose.
In Game 1, after managing to resolve a Fires by forcing a counterspell on a Chained to the Rocks and then using a Treasure from Fable of the Mirror Breaker to cast the Fires, I was fortunate enough to draw my Kenrith and Knight of Autumn, allowing me to cast Kenrith, cast Knight gaining 4, use Kenrith to give Refliki haste, copy Knight for another 4, then use Kenrith’s ability to gain 5. Gaining 13 life a turn is a great way to stem the bleeding, allowing me to quickly stabilize and crack back for the win.
In Game 2, I was able to land a Fires and Enigmatic on Turn 4 after playing a bunch of removal early, picking up Tolsimir which cleaned up the board pretty quick with Yorion to double the trigger.
Result: A very surprising 2-0
Round 2 - Charlie on MonoU Spirits
High off a victory on an unfavoured matchup, seeing a Snow-Covered Island was simultaneously horrifying and exciting. Maybe I’d learned how to crack the matchup? Maybe I’d ran hot and was about to have my dreams crushed.
I can’t entirely remember what happened in the match, but I can see on my lifepad that my life total went from 4 > 8 > 12 > 16, so I’m assuming I managed to make some copies of Knight of Autumn again.
Game 2 the Spirits trounced me.
Game 3 my opponent mulliganed down to 5, had their Spirits removed, cast a couple of counters, but then only drew lands, leaving me to beat down with Yorion and a 4/3 Knight of Autumn. So Magic goes sometimes.
Result: A continually surprising 2-1. I’m 2-0 in matches.
Round 3 - Alfie on MonoB Zombies
Enigmatic Fires is generally very happy to see a deck that has no way of removing enchantments outside of discard spells, and this was no different. I was slightly surprised to see this relatively budget brew in the 2-0 bracket. Alfie said he’d so far beaten Greasefang and a BW Midrange deck, both of which surprised me. He finished the day 4-2 though so clearly there’s something cooking here.
Anyway, if there’s one thing a Zombie hates, it’s being exiled, and we did a lot of that to win 2-0 very safely.
Result: 2-0, I’m 3-0 in matches.
Round 4 - Andy on Izzet Creativity
Andy is a lovely man that I’ve seen at almost every RCQ I played in this season, and we’ve been paired together a couple times too. While I ultimately lost the match, I was not sad to lose to him at all as he’s a strong and friendly player, which truly is the best combo in Magic.
A slightly less good combo is Izzet Creativity, which I should have known he was on. While shuffling, he accidentally dropped a Stormcarved Coast, and I knew he knew better than to play Izzet Phoenix in Sheoldred’s Meta. In this matchup, the only card that matters in our deck is Leyline Binding (and Touch the Spirit Realm too) to break up the combo at Instant speed. I should have mulliganed aggressively for that in G1, but I chose to just keep a pretty decent hand as though I was blindly queuing into him. He combo’d off on Turn 5 like the deck wants to do and I felt very silly for my decisions.
In Game 2 I was able to land a Koma onto the battlefield, which shuts off his combo and is extremely difficult to remove, so I won.
In Game 3, he did manage to combo off but I got to channel the Touch the Spirit Realm to avoid taking damage, giving me an extra turn to find an answer. After a lot of deliberation on a Fable discard/draw trigger, the best I could get to stick was a Deputy of Detention on the Wurm, he revealed Fire Prophecy in his hand and I shook it (the hand, not the Prophecy).
Result: A sore 1-2, I’m 3-1 in matches.
Round 5 - Ray on MonoU Spirits
As we sat down, my opponent said to their friend “I really hope this guy’s not on Spirits”. My opening hand had 2 Chained to the Rocks, 2 Leyline Bindings, and the lands to cast those spells. I prayed that my opponent wasn’t on Control or Lotus Field and hoped for the best.
Then I proceeded to remove every threat they played and make an Atraxa on Turn 4.
I don’t remember Game 2 very clearly, but the lifepad shows that it went similarly.
After the games, my opponent said they absolutely hated playing against my deck and they always lose to it. I wonder if Spirits players are misunderstanding this matchup? Because it feels absolutely awful on my end, and yet I’ve now beaten it 3 times.
Result: I’m not sure whether or not it’s still surprising, but 2-0 to put me on 4-1 in matches.
At this point, the ID maths starts. After a lot of inevitably pointless discussion, as we sit down it becomes clear that the Top 6 can ID and lock themselves in, but that Tables 4 and 5 would have to fight for it.
Round 6 - Ben on Izzet Phoenix
Upsettingly for both of us, we’re on Table 4. Ben is another of the Sheffield massive, and is playing my Phoenix deck which he has borrowed from me. Ben first played this deck last week at WNM and has gone on an insane 4-1 streak playing one of the most complex (and not very well-positioned) decks in the format. Man’s just good at Magic and loves drawing 3 cards.
We have a little chat and Ben tells me he’s leaning towards conceding to me because he feels I have a better chance at going on to win the tournament and, being his first RCQ in years, he’s not in a great position to start gearing up for an RC in a format he’s barely played.
We decide to start playing our games anyway though and see how things go before we make any further decisions. I land an early Atraxa, which he is able to remove with a Galvanic Iteration and a Lightning Axe, but his draws haven’t been very kind and he has to Temporal Trespass with only a 2/4 Ledger Shredder on the board. I remove it and win.
We realise that if I win, I’ll be the top seed, giving me the ability to start on the play every round of the Top 8. That information pushes Ben to concede the match and save us both the bother of sideboarding.
Result: I’m 5-1 and locked as Top Seed of the Top 8. Out of the 6 of us from Sheffield, we’ve put 3 into the Top 8. That’s in a 50-player tournament. Sheffield showing the North how it’s done.
Out of the three of us, Ian isn’t interested in the invite to Athens because he’s at an Arctic Monkeys concert that night and Sheffield does revoke your citizenship if you decline to go to an Arctic Monkeys concert for any non-life-or-death reason. He is, however, interested in the £250 that goes to first place. The three of us agree to split all of our prizes evenly no matter what happens to give us the best chances of getting what we each want.
Top 8
Quarterfinals - Lewis on Abzan Greasefang
Unfortunately, Lewis is one of the 3 from Sheffield we’ve put into the Top 8 and isn’t Ian, so is looking for the invite too. Unfortunately for me, Greasefang is a pretty difficult matchup also.
At this point, we’ve mapped out the Top 8 and know these are the decks involved:
Enigmatic Fires Abzan Greasefang
RakSac x2
Creativity x2
UW Control
Humans
It’s not clear which of us would be better into the rest of the field, so there’s no clear concession decision. We also both want the invite, so we wouldn’t feel good choosing to pass it up when there’s no guarantee the other person will get it.
In Game 1, Lewis manages to assemble his combo on Turn 4, but I have a Leyline Binding to stop it. He plays another Greasefang on Turn 5, and after a while I remember the Legend Rule, playing Yorion to flicker my own Leyline Binding, making him sacrifice one Greasefang and I exile the other. That’s enough of a hit to his plan that I run away with the rest of the game.
In Game 2, I’m able to stick an Elesh Norn but he assembles the combo and hits me down to 2. I use Enigmatic to get Tolsimir and wipe his board, except for the angels, and gain 12 life. The Angels continue to hit me down to 6 and I’m left with the difficult decision between either cycling a Triome to dig for a 2cmc enchantment that I can Enigmatic into an exile effect for the angels, or casting Yorion and blocking one angel to go down to 2, dead to a Witherbloom Command. I opt for the Yorion line, he has Witherbloom, we go to Game 3.
In Game 3, I keep a 2 lander with Enigmatic and Fires and a Bitter Renunion to find the other lands I need or hate for the Greasefang. I get T1 Thoughtseized and he takes the Reunion which is controversial but I think correct. I manage to just draw the lands that I need and land a Fires plus Enigmatic, getting an Elesh Norn and later a Tolsimir, while his Salvage only finds a Skysovereign which I just take the hit of and I snowball away with the game.
Sucks to knock out a friend, but we played some really fun and interesting games.
Semifinals - Ian on RakSac
With our prize split already agreed, for Ian and I the main decision is who we think has the best chance to win the tournament. The other semifinal match is RakSac vs Humans, which we’d expect RakSac to win. If that’s the case, I’m better off going into the finals as RakSac cannot remove Enchantments so it’s generally a good matchup, especially compared to the mirror which is inherently a bit more of a coinflip. Ian had already played and beaten that same opponent in the Swiss though and felt like he understood the mirror better than his opponent did, so it wasn’t completely cut and dry.
We started to play out our match. On Turn 3, Ian discards a Mayhem Devil to a Blood token, which initially I see as quite a positive for me. Of course I should have realised what that telegraphs, which is that he had 3 more in his hand. 3 Mayhem Devils is very strong as it turns out, and even though I manage to remove two with Skyclave Apparition and Tolsimir, by this point the damage is already done and I lose.
I’m not necessarily deterred though. I’ve played XCom. It’s very possible to miss a 90% shot and it’s very easy to lose a 90-10 matchup, doesn’t mean you’re any less favoured.
By the time we finish sideboarding, the other semifinals match has finished with Rakdos Sacrifice predictably coming out on top. Ian extends his hand and tells me to go get ‘em (after his best efforts to knock my confidence on the matchup).
Finals - Jeremy on Rakdos Sacrifice
I’m not entirely sure, but I think this might have been Jeremy’s first time in an RCQ Top 8. He’d had a very strong run; meanwhile this is the first time in 4 rounds that I hadn’t played against a friend. Even though I played out some of those games and this likely would have been the outcome, I do feel like a bit of a Nepo Baby coming into the match.
We take a quick snack break and I eat some of the best mango I’ve ever consumed. Tesco Meal Deal really coming in clutch there. Ian gives me a bit of advice on his perspective on the RakSac matchup, saying “When you have a Yorion turn, you win.”
In Game 1, I Chained to the Rocks a Bloodtithe Harvester, Leyline Binding a Mayhem Devil, then drop an Enigmatic, make an Atraxa, which finds another Binding to rebind the Devil. He hardcasts Eaten Alive to remove Atraxa, and next turn I play Yorion, he scoops. Ian pats me on the back.
In Game 2 I suffer the only manabase difficulty of the day. My 7 has only 2 lands and a lot of one-of creatures instead of impactful spells. My 6 has 2 lands, Chained to the Rocks, Rest in Peace, Radiant Flames, and a Bitter Reunion, but no white mana. I figure the Bitter Reunion will do enough to fix the mana, but he Thoughtseizes it away from me and follows up with a Bloodtithe Harvester. I play out my lands and he casts Go Blank on me. I discard a land and the Chained to the Rocks (a mistake, Rest in Peace should have gone over one of those cards), and I’m immediately punished by drawing Nylea’s Presence which could have cast the Chained. I have to Radiant Flames to stop the Bloodtithe Harvester from beating me down, but at this point he’s got the lands to animate Den of the Bugbear and there’s nothing I can do about it. We go to Game 3 and things get tense.
By Game 3, fatigue is definitely setting in, possibly also nerves. I start to think that Chained to the Rocks has the mana value restriction of Portable Hole (crossed wires from playing Arena, where we have to play Portable Hole instead of Chained, WoTC pls) and almost Chained to the Rocks an Unlucky Witness instead of Mayhem Devil. Fortunately, my opponent asks me what the Chained is targeting and that prompts me to remember that it can target the Devil.
I Chained 2 Devils and each time he sacrificed them to the Oven, but this allows me to cast Yorion and bounce my Chains to pick up new targets. Yorion is also bouncing a Nyleas’s Presence and a Bitter Reunion, so gets me a lot of value. I Glasspool Mimic my Yorion for another round of triggers, keeping the old Yorion and using the new Yorion’s trigger to flicker it, giving me a third round of triggers also. However, despite drawing 12 cards, I can’t find an Enigmatic or another creature to save my life and he’s able to whittle me down with a Hive of the Eye Tyrant and a Ramunap Ruins until I’m at 4. I manage to drop a Callous Bloodmage and make a Pest as a blocker and hopefully a source of life, while continually holding up a Leyline Binding in case he finds Bloody Betrayal for Yorion. 4 per turn from Yorion is enough to eventually get him down, and I close out the match with an attack all for 7 (Yorion, Callous Bloodmage, and 2 Pests from Touch the Spirit Realming the Bloodmage) when he’s at 6.
Fantastic games all around.
Closing Thoughts:
During the car journey back we discussed how this was a very strange meta for the tournament. MonoU Spirits was the most popular deck and that probably reflects its low cost. The store owner was very pleased to see 51 people turn up for an event, and that’s largely due to how accessible Pioneer is as a format. This had two huge effects for me. Firstly, the Spirits players that I played against had a lot less experience in the matchup than I had. That’s the benefit of playing an off-meta deck into a bunch of meta decks. Through experience and my opponents’ inexperience, I was able to find lines that flipped an unfavourable matchup 3 times in the same day. Secondly, the Spirits players were very weak to the Rakdos Sacrifice players, allowing them to get into the Top 8 where I could prey on them, efficiently rock-paper-scissoring the win into my hands.
While I played pretty tightly all day, and this was my third Top 8 of the season so I’d somewhat proven my ability to get there, there was also a lol of luck involved in my win as there is with any Magic tournament.
Having a team of 6 people was also an insane boon. I’ve worked hard to help build this community of competitive Magic players in Sheffield and even just having friends around for morale and (OUTSIDE OF MATCHES) advice is an incredible help. I’m sure there’s some conflicting opinions about how fair the team advantage is, but I think it’s only fitting that in Magic: the Gathering, working alongside people to improve as a player is a valid path to victory.

2023.04.02 13:40 Foyfluff Tournament Report: RCQ Win with Enigmatic Fires at Fanboy3 Manchester

Hey folks, I won a local RCQ playing Yorion Enigmatic Fires. Then I wrote almost 4,000 words about the deck and the day and I thought you might be curious to read them! Feel free to ask me any questions you like.

Decklist: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/5521211#online
Deck Choice:
I don’t necessarily believe Enigmatic Fires is the best deck in the Pioneer format, but it is definitely the most fun deck for me to play. There are a lot of extremely powerful interactions in the deck and it does represent pretty much a free win for any deck that can’t remove enchantments, like Rakdos. The deck is almost entirely Explorer legal too (WoTC can we have Chained to the Rocks pls?) so I’ve had a lot of practice with the deck with easily over 300 matches online. That familiarity with the deck and its lines definitely paid off during the day, and I was able to find some pretty great winning moves that I probably wouldn’t have found without that experience.
Card Choices:
Okay, first off, that manabase will look very weird. I could write all day about the intricacies of the 5c Fires manabase, but suffice it to say that there’s a mix of “here’s the triomes and checklands I own / could borrow” and “actually some of these decisions might reflect specific choices I’ve made in deckbuilding.” The mana actually felt incredibly smooth though, there was only one game the entire tournament during which I had to make difficult choices regarding what I was able to cast due to mana constraints (and it was during the finals) which I would consider incredibly good for an 80 card, 5-colour deck in Pioneer.
When it comes to 1-of creatures, lists are fairly settled. My most notable decisions there are playing Gloomshrieker over Shigeki, Jukai Visionary (Gloomshrieker is the better tutor target) and playing Atraxa where some lists choose not to. I can’t believe I’m having to try and convince people to play Atraxa, but play Atraxa! She draws 3 cards and doesn’t afraid of anything.
For enchantments, I’m completely sold on Bitter Reunion as the card advantage spell of choice (over Omen of the Sea). The activated ability can be very relevant, especially to give Refliki of Kiki-Jiki hastiki to criki a tiki of aniki nonlegiki criki we contriki. There tends to be 3 spots left in the enchantments for some kind of removal spell, with popular choices including Oath of Chandra, Omen of the Forge, and Trial of Ambition. While I used to be a big fan of Trial, it does put considerable pressure on the manabase, so I decided to cut them. Omen can go upstairs, but 2 damage just isn’t enough in the format. I think Oath of Chandra is the best choice as 3 kills most early drops and doubling it with Elesh Norn or Yorion can kill most later game threats in the format. However, I didn’t own any Oath of Chandra in paper, and also wanted to respect Greasfang and Creativity, so I chose Touch the Spirit Realm which has a tonne of synergies with the deck as both an O-Ring and a Cloudshift (that can target your opponent’s creatures). However, I found I didn’t own 3 Touch the Spirit Realms, so I went for 2 and an Omen of the Sea. #justpaperthings
Rending Volleys and Radiant Flames are must-haves in the sideboard for me (WoTC can we pls have Radiant Flames in Arena?) for Spirits and Humans. Mystical Disputes are also very good against Spirits and are great for Control and Creativity too. Rest in Peace is a pretty good card for the meta generally, though if you’re not seeing much Greasefang then I don’t think they’re necessary (we have tools to beat other graveyard decks in the main, like Callous Bloodmage and a bunch of exile-based removal). I knew I would be seeing some Greasefang, so I wanted the RIPs. That just leaves a few slots for tutor targets. Koma is my choice for extra 7 drop in the side (over Dragonlord Atarka), Nimble Larcenist is great in any slower matchup. After getting to the venue, it seemed like there were a good number of Creativity and Lotus Field players, so I cut a Rending Volley for Reidane, God of the Worthy. In retrospect, I think I should have cut a Radiant Flames instead (early removal is so much more important in the aggressive matchups than Sweepers) but I was still happy with this meta call.
The decklist is heavily inspired by NJAMTG and the Enigmanifesto, and the sideboard guide as well as matchup tips therein was an incredibly useful resource for me and reduced the mental load of sideboarding massively (which is very useful for a deck that already has hundreds of interactions). I sent them $10 through PayPal for the help that this doc provided me.
The Day:
6 of us from the Patriot Games Sheffield massive traveled to Manchester to show them how Magic is played. Between us we represented Enigmatic Fires, Abzan Greasefang, MonoU Spirits, UW Spirits, Rakrifice Sacrifice, and Izzet Phoenix. I trusted all of these players to do well, and that definitely influenced my decision to run this deck in the first place (over what I would have otherwise played, MonoG Devotion) and also influenced my decision to run Touch the Spirit Realm. Having such a large group was amazing for morale and having people to chat with and decompress with between rounds, as well as having a very good understanding of what decks were being played in the room after only a couple of rounds.
It became very clear very quickly that the meta was aggressive. There were a lot of Spirits players, Control was almost nowhere to be seen, Mono Green was underrepresented, and even Rakdos Mid wasn’t making much of a showing with RakSac being more popular.
This did not bode well for me. There’s a reason our sideboard has 10 cards for MonoU Spirits and it’s not because we’re trying to make a good matchup better. Registering 5c Enigmatic Fires, I’d already decided I was happy to lose some games and just have a fun time, doing my best to cheer on the rest of my team, and seeing a bunch of Spirits players did nothing to raise my ambitions higher than that.
The Matches:
Round 1 - Sam on MonoU Spirits
Sam was one of the Sheffielders I’d brought in the car and is a good Spirits player, so I was very much prepared to lose Game 1 and have to battle it out in the sideboard games, still expecting to lose.
In Game 1, after managing to resolve a Fires by forcing a counterspell on a Chained to the Rocks and then using a Treasure from Fable of the Mirror Breaker to cast the Fires, I was fortunate enough to draw my Kenrith and Knight of Autumn, allowing me to cast Kenrith, cast Knight gaining 4, use Kenrith to give Refliki haste, copy Knight for another 4, then use Kenrith’s ability to gain 5. Gaining 13 life a turn is a great way to stem the bleeding, allowing me to quickly stabilize and crack back for the win.
In Game 2, I was able to land a Fires and Enigmatic on Turn 4 after playing a bunch of removal early, picking up Tolsimir which cleaned up the board pretty quick with Yorion to double the trigger.
Result: A very surprising 2-0
Round 2 - Charlie on MonoU Spirits
High off a victory on an unfavoured matchup, seeing a Snow-Covered Island was simultaneously horrifying and exciting. Maybe I’d learned how to crack the matchup? Maybe I’d ran hot and was about to have my dreams crushed.
I can’t entirely remember what happened in the match, but I can see on my lifepad that my life total went from 4 > 8 > 12 > 16, so I’m assuming I managed to make some copies of Knight of Autumn again.
Game 2 the Spirits trounced me.
Game 3 my opponent mulliganed down to 5, had their Spirits removed, cast a couple of counters, but then only drew lands, leaving me to beat down with Yorion and a 4/3 Knight of Autumn. So Magic goes sometimes.
Result: A continually surprising 2-1. I’m 2-0 in matches.
Round 3 - Alfie on MonoB Zombies
Enigmatic Fires is generally very happy to see a deck that has no way of removing enchantments outside of discard spells, and this was no different. I was slightly surprised to see this relatively budget brew in the 2-0 bracket. Alfie said he’d so far beaten Greasefang and a BW Midrange deck, both of which surprised me. He finished the day 4-2 though so clearly there’s something cooking here.
Anyway, if there’s one thing a Zombie hates, it’s being exiled, and we did a lot of that to win 2-0 very safely.
Result: 2-0, I’m 3-0 in matches.
Round 4 - Andy on Izzet Creativity
Andy is a lovely man that I’ve seen at almost every RCQ I played in this season, and we’ve been paired together a couple times too. While I ultimately lost the match, I was not sad to lose to him at all as he’s a strong and friendly player, which truly is the best combo in Magic.
A slightly less good combo is Izzet Creativity, which I should have known he was on. While shuffling, he accidentally dropped a Stormcarved Coast, and I knew he knew better than to play Izzet Phoenix in Sheoldred’s Meta. In this matchup, the only card that matters in our deck is Leyline Binding (and Touch the Spirit Realm too) to break up the combo at Instant speed. I should have mulliganed aggressively for that in G1, but I chose to just keep a pretty decent hand as though I was blindly queuing into him. He combo’d off on Turn 5 like the deck wants to do and I felt very silly for my decisions.
In Game 2 I was able to land a Koma onto the battlefield, which shuts off his combo and is extremely difficult to remove, so I won.
In Game 3, he did manage to combo off but I got to channel the Touch the Spirit Realm to avoid taking damage, giving me an extra turn to find an answer. After a lot of deliberation on a Fable discard/draw trigger, the best I could get to stick was a Deputy of Detention on the Wurm, he revealed Fire Prophecy in his hand and I shook it (the hand, not the Prophecy).
Result: A sore 1-2, I’m 3-1 in matches.
Round 5 - Ray on MonoU Spirits
As we sat down, my opponent said to their friend “I really hope this guy’s not on Spirits”. My opening hand had 2 Chained to the Rocks, 2 Leyline Bindings, and the lands to cast those spells. I prayed that my opponent wasn’t on Control or Lotus Field and hoped for the best.
Then I proceeded to remove every threat they played and make an Atraxa on Turn 4.
I don’t remember Game 2 very clearly, but the lifepad shows that it went similarly.
After the games, my opponent said they absolutely hated playing against my deck and they always lose to it. I wonder if Spirits players are misunderstanding this matchup? Because it feels absolutely awful on my end, and yet I’ve now beaten it 3 times.
Result: I’m not sure whether or not it’s still surprising, but 2-0 to put me on 4-1 in matches.
At this point, the ID maths starts. After a lot of inevitably pointless discussion, as we sit down it becomes clear that the Top 6 can ID and lock themselves in, but that Tables 4 and 5 would have to fight for it.
Round 6 - Ben on Izzet Phoenix
Upsettingly for both of us, we’re on Table 4. Ben is another of the Sheffield massive, and is playing my Phoenix deck which he has borrowed from me. Ben first played this deck last week at WNM and has gone on an insane 4-1 streak playing one of the most complex (and not very well-positioned) decks in the format. Man’s just good at Magic and loves drawing 3 cards.
We have a little chat and Ben tells me he’s leaning towards conceding to me because he feels I have a better chance at going on to win the tournament and, being his first RCQ in years, he’s not in a great position to start gearing up for an RC in a format he’s barely played.
We decide to start playing our games anyway though and see how things go before we make any further decisions. I land an early Atraxa, which he is able to remove with a Galvanic Iteration and a Lightning Axe, but his draws haven’t been very kind and he has to Temporal Trespass with only a 2/4 Ledger Shredder on the board. I remove it and win.
We realise that if I win, I’ll be the top seed, giving me the ability to start on the play every round of the Top 8. That information pushes Ben to concede the match and save us both the bother of sideboarding.
Result: I’m 5-1 and locked as Top Seed of the Top 8. Out of the 6 of us from Sheffield, we’ve put 3 into the Top 8. That’s in a 50-player tournament. Sheffield showing the North how it’s done.
Out of the three of us, Ian isn’t interested in the invite to Athens because he’s at an Arctic Monkeys concert that night and Sheffield does revoke your citizenship if you decline to go to an Arctic Monkeys concert for any non-life-or-death reason. He is, however, interested in the £250 that goes to first place. The three of us agree to split all of our prizes evenly no matter what happens to give us the best chances of getting what we each want.
Top 8
Quarterfinals - Lewis on Abzan Greasefang
Unfortunately, Lewis is one of the 3 from Sheffield we’ve put into the Top 8 and isn’t Ian, so is looking for the invite too. Unfortunately for me, Greasefang is a pretty difficult matchup also.
At this point, we’ve mapped out the Top 8 and know these are the decks involved:
Enigmatic Fires Abzan Greasefang
RakSac x2
Creativity x2
UW Control
Humans
It’s not clear which of us would be better into the rest of the field, so there’s no clear concession decision. We also both want the invite, so we wouldn’t feel good choosing to pass it up when there’s no guarantee the other person will get it.
In Game 1, Lewis manages to assemble his combo on Turn 4, but I have a Leyline Binding to stop it. He plays another Greasefang on Turn 5, and after a while I remember the Legend Rule, playing Yorion to flicker my own Leyline Binding, making him sacrifice one Greasefang and I exile the other. That’s enough of a hit to his plan that I run away with the rest of the game.
In Game 2, I’m able to stick an Elesh Norn but he assembles the combo and hits me down to 2. I use Enigmatic to get Tolsimir and wipe his board, except for the angels, and gain 12 life. The Angels continue to hit me down to 6 and I’m left with the difficult decision between either cycling a Triome to dig for a 2cmc enchantment that I can Enigmatic into an exile effect for the angels, or casting Yorion and blocking one angel to go down to 2, dead to a Witherbloom Command. I opt for the Yorion line, he has Witherbloom, we go to Game 3.
In Game 3, I keep a 2 lander with Enigmatic and Fires and a Bitter Renunion to find the other lands I need or hate for the Greasefang. I get T1 Thoughtseized and he takes the Reunion which is controversial but I think correct. I manage to just draw the lands that I need and land a Fires plus Enigmatic, getting an Elesh Norn and later a Tolsimir, while his Salvage only finds a Skysovereign which I just take the hit of and I snowball away with the game.
Sucks to knock out a friend, but we played some really fun and interesting games.
Semifinals - Ian on RakSac
With our prize split already agreed, for Ian and I the main decision is who we think has the best chance to win the tournament. The other semifinal match is RakSac vs Humans, which we’d expect RakSac to win. If that’s the case, I’m better off going into the finals as RakSac cannot remove Enchantments so it’s generally a good matchup, especially compared to the mirror which is inherently a bit more of a coinflip. Ian had already played and beaten that same opponent in the Swiss though and felt like he understood the mirror better than his opponent did, so it wasn’t completely cut and dry.
We started to play out our match. On Turn 3, Ian discards a Mayhem Devil to a Blood token, which initially I see as quite a positive for me. Of course I should have realised what that telegraphs, which is that he had 3 more in his hand. 3 Mayhem Devils is very strong as it turns out, and even though I manage to remove two with Skyclave Apparition and Tolsimir, by this point the damage is already done and I lose.
I’m not necessarily deterred though. I’ve played XCom. It’s very possible to miss a 90% shot and it’s very easy to lose a 90-10 matchup, doesn’t mean you’re any less favoured.
By the time we finish sideboarding, the other semifinals match has finished with Rakdos Sacrifice predictably coming out on top. Ian extends his hand and tells me to go get ‘em (after his best efforts to knock my confidence on the matchup).
Finals - Jeremy on Rakdos Sacrifice
I’m not entirely sure, but I think this might have been Jeremy’s first time in an RCQ Top 8. He’d had a very strong run; meanwhile this is the first time in 4 rounds that I hadn’t played against a friend. Even though I played out some of those games and this likely would have been the outcome, I do feel like a bit of a Nepo Baby coming into the match.
We take a quick snack break and I eat some of the best mango I’ve ever consumed. Tesco Meal Deal really coming in clutch there. Ian gives me a bit of advice on his perspective on the RakSac matchup, saying “When you have a Yorion turn, you win.”
In Game 1, I Chained to the Rocks a Bloodtithe Harvester, Leyline Binding a Mayhem Devil, then drop an Enigmatic, make an Atraxa, which finds another Binding to rebind the Devil. He hardcasts Eaten Alive to remove Atraxa, and next turn I play Yorion, he scoops. Ian pats me on the back.

Fortunately, my opponent asks me what the Chained is targeting and that prompts me to remember that it can target the Devil.

2023.04.02 12:39 SmolderinCorpse Best 30th Birthday party venue?

Hi all - I'm looking at organising a birthday party for someone turning 30. We would like to invite around 30 to 40 people. We don't really want to spend an extravagant amount of money on the event, budget would be anywhere around 2000 - 4000ish (4000 over is not preferred).
We would like to have a venue with sitting, and possibly tables, with maybe a bar, and to allow music to play (not sure about live music, probably something off spotify on a speaker should do fine).
Any recommendations? Thanks heaps

2023.04.02 10:41 Fun_Dust_6270 HR Assistant Interview Assessment Help!

HR Assistant Interview Assessment Help!
I have an interview for an HR assistant, but beforehand they want me to complete an assessment. Part of this is compiling a timeline and task checklist for “Procedures for Employee Recognition”
I may be overthinking this, but I’m a little confused on what exactly I am to be doing for this. Is this supposed to be laid out in an Excel spreadsheet? Does anyone have any examples they could give me a link to? I’ve attached a picture of the assessment.
Thank you in advance!!
