Grim Tidings #8.5: 5-Color Reborn!!!!

(Contributed by John Kozlowski)

Well that didn't take long! Within five short days, the 5-Color world has been shaken to its core, and a brand new format has been re-launched! All I can say is that I'm stunned. I truly thought the beuracracy of a Ruling Council would necessitate a vote and months of debate and inaction. Instead, Jeremy Bush, aka Zombor, aka 5CRC Chairman relaunches a new website with a new deck size, color requirements, and new B&R!

This will take a little bit of time to fully digest and figure out, but basically here's the new format rules:

Minimum deck size and color requirements:
300 cards minimum.
No more than four of any card (except basic lands). Banned and restricted lists do apply.
At least twenty five (25) cards of each color are required. Multicolored cards count toward any one of that card's colors.
Proxies are allowed for any number of cards in a deck.
