Some say you should sell your deck after a tournament. Others say you shouldn't. Some don't like seeing the same exact deck from an opponent in the final two tournaments. Some don't want to make an entirely new deck every tourney.

This variant proposes to give a little something to everyone. Each time you finish a tourney, jot down your six-or-seven card tableau, not to include accessories or boxes. This creates your own personal restricted list, a list from which you may pull one card in future decks. Feel free to make that two cards, if it floats your goat.

This way, you're not forced to sell your deck, but it becomes a decent idea, and you may even make a collection using its parts next round, or completely rebuild from nothing. You might see very similar engines from the same player, but most of the cards will be different.

So far, smooth sailing for us. Thoughts?

I think you're mixing up "floats your boat" (makes you happy) and "gets your goat" (makes you angry).

If you want to force people to play different decks, why not just make them use different deck boxes?

Restricting singles seems to be problematic because you can get rid of your tournament deck (sell/fuse/trade) and then open a pack with another copy of a card. Now you also have to get rid of that card?

Either write down people's deck boxes, or destroy them at end of tournament, or sell them into the discard pile if you're worried about the value differential. Players will need to be more creative to find a replacement deck box, or be forced to come up with a new strategy. Some players may manage to draw another copy of the same deck box, or a different box that somewhat supports their existing deck. There's a greater chance of variety this way, although it is not guaranteed.

Different deck boxes doesn't sound like a bad idea. There are a lot of singles, and deckboxes are the other ~40 cards in your deck.

Update, force deck box sales were perfect. Decks may have had one or two singles in crossover, and once an opponent completely rebuilt even after selling deckbox and aftermarketing most of the deck away.
