Format announcement: Introducing Brothers' Highlander

Remember the good old days? Before Recall got unrestricted? What about the good old days before that - kitchen table magic? Real flavour. Jedit Ojanen taking on Jasmine Boreal. Electric Eel vs Water Wurm. When you included your prized new card in all your new decks - just because.

Brothers’ Highlander is the casual house format of the Brothers Of Fire club. We are putting this out there simply to see if it resonates with others. It’s designed to encourage fun cards and unusual interactions and the rules may be tweaked periodically to keep the format fresh.

Brothers' Highlander rules version 1.0 - June 2018

All decks of 100 cards exactly.

Legal sets: ABU, AN, AQ, LE, TD, FE, 93/94 promo cards. (Note: Fallen Empires is legal).

ALL cards are RESTRICTED apart from basic lands.

The following cards are BANNED: Library of Alexandria, Mind Twist.

Players have 10 points to spend per deck on the following CONTROLLED cards:
Ancestral Recall - 7
Balance - 1
Black Lotus - 7
Demonic Tutor - 4
Jayemdae Tome - 2
Mirror Universe - 7
Mox (any) - 3
Sol Ring - 3
Time Vault - 6
Time Walk - 6
Transmute Artifact - 1
Karakas - 7

Rules: Standard Swedish Old School rules (i.e. modern but with errata for Chaos Orb)

Printing legality: Any non-proxy non-foil card with original art in the original frame is legal. Revised Serendib Efreet and Plateau are also legal.

Mulligans: Paris Mulligan is not played. Instead, after drawing their initial 7 cards, either player may declare a Gentleman’s Mulligan and show their hand to their opponent. In the event that it contains 0 or 1 mana source, or 6-7 mana sources (i.e. a mana screw or a mana flood), that player can shuffle their deck and draw a fresh 7. There is no limit to the number of Gentleman’s Mulligans that can be declared. (A mana source is any zero-converted-mana-cost card which produces mana - i.e. a land or a Mox, or similar).
