Card Banned at Professor Cup

The OP team has had a long discussion about Wormadam and the impact that it had on the European Professor Cup. This event has thrived on being a fun, creative tournament, where players feel comfortable using off the wall decks. That’s what makes the event so enjoyable for so many people, POP staff included. Considering the options available in the Professor Cup format this year, we don’t see any reasonable, reliable answer to this deck.

Our great concern is that we’ll see 95% of the players using this deck,
resulting in a terribly uninteresting Professor Cup. That said, Wormadam Sandy Cloak is not permitted for use at the North American Professor Cup.The Professor Cup FAQ will be updated tomorrow with this information, and we’ll look at sending out an email blast about this as well.

Please distribute this information to as many Professors as you can.I
apologize if this causes players to scramble to build new decks with only a
handful of days until the event. We did not make this decision lightly, and we strongly feel that it is for the best.Thank you for your understanding.
