Interested in a format other than standard? Well, the rogue tournament format is just for you! The rogue tournament format is a fanmade format created to make the game a little more exciting! by banning or limiting a good portion of the highest seen competitive cards! This is done by creating an unofficial ban list (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CvJhjPMB8gLrCBYbf6o4Ujp0-2NlttoLlSkCquP06Jc/edit?usp=sharing) in addition to Konami’s Forbidden and Limited list where the hoster deems what cards are too powerful and players must abide by those rules. Test your skills and see what is the most fun deck you can make!
