South West Legacy is a Bristol/South Wales based quarterly, community run, non-sanctioned, competitive Legacy Magic the Gathering Tournament based on the London Legacy Monthly format for people in the South West of the UK.
The aim of these will be to increase community participation in Legacy, help people who may not have access to certain cards test out decks if they are looking to buy into the format and to increase circulation of Legacy staples locally.
Also most of all to have fun playing a game and format we love!

*Playtest Card Policy
This tournament will allow playtest cards. We understand that many people want to try Legacy but are unable to afford the high cost of the format, these tournaments are our way around the problem. By not making a profit, allowing playtest cards and giving prizes of Legacy cards we hope to make it a bit easier for those who want to give Legacy a try.
Playtest cards are not reproductions of authentic Wizards products and are created by players for personal and non-commercial use to test deck concepts.These are either colour or black and white printed (at home) pictures of the card you intend to proxy with the full accompanying text. They are then cut out and slipped into a sleeve with a real MTG card. ‘Sharpied’ basic lands are not allowed. This is because this tournament is meant to encourage new players and therefore all cards need their rules text. Some people with sight problems also recognise cards by their art so please use original art cards. We understand people have issues with the idea that these cards might now be slightly thicker, however the positives of this system outweigh the negatives. ‘Chinese Proxies’ or FAKE CARDS are in no way allowed. As you are allowed to use playtest cards there is no possible reason to bring these cards to this event. Please do not support counterfeiters. Collectors edition and World Championship cards are allowed.
