Hi Folks,

As some of you know already, I've been involved in the Duel variant of Commander since 2007.
Since Dec 20th, 2012, along with a team of players, we have started a website dedicated to Duel Commander:
http://www.duelcommander.com
The website is both French and English, and we aim at updating the specific ban-list (known as the "French" ban-list) every three months.

Enjoy!

I was under the impression that the french rules also remove tuck by allowing generals sent to library to instead be placed in the command zone. Is that not the case?

Also, I would suggest that you post your complete ban list first and discuss the changes from the original ban list afterwards. Much less confusing for anyone coming in without a solid background in normal multiplayer commander.

It is.
I've sent that feedback to the article manager and he should check this very fast.
Thx for the feedback :)

Kevin.

Great! this site is a good idea.

We want to organize a more 'competitive' commander event. Some players are asking for this.
This site is a good help.
Can you give more information about how to organize such an event?
Do you play only one game, or best out of 3?
Do you use the sideboard rules? And can you sideboard before the first game then?

Hey,

We usually play 60-minute rounds, best of 3, without sideboards.
We usually cut to top8.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate :)

Kevin.

Why no sideboards, out of curiosity?

We had playtested SB, and we came to the conclusion that, to be competitive, they would most likely never be made of anything else than the most broken color-haters (Anarchy, Boil, etc.) and that they didn't add much else than "Will I draw my hate before you draw yours?"

Well, tempesteye, if your point is fair, we try to have Commander remain different than other formats and keep it relatively close to the original (multiplayer) one.
obsidiandice had exactly summarized my thoughts.

Kevin.

Again out of curiosity, what about EDH makes the colour hosers so good? You don't see them very much in legacy sideboards (you do a bit, but the vast majority of sideboard slots are not devoted to colour hosers) so why are they so necessary in this format?

Which is exactly my point. If you're playing a MATCH, having options to deal with opposing strategies is important and that's what a SB is for.
Even if you're talking about pre-boarding for a 1v1 commander game, I think that's still acceptable, since the brokenness of the format still exists (albeit in a different way).

It seems to me that anyone who chooses to play a narrowly build deck (like mono-Blue) has to accept that they are weak to certain color hate cards.
And there is nothing stopping the other deck from from sideboarding in their own hate cards.

What I see here, Kevin, is you trying to sculpt the meta in a very specific direction, instead of letting it develop in its own direction. There's nothing wrong with that, btw, but let's just be clear on what's really happening.
