thanks a lot in advance,

Hm, Yoshima, i think you do not completely understand B.Y.O.B... It's not like, bring any block (cycle), altough you can do that, but i doubt it will be as effective... It's like that.
Your deck must consist from cards of:
1 Basic set (saga, masques, tempest, ice age, invasion...)
1 1st expansion (legacy, visions, stronghold, homelands, planeshift, nemesis...)
1 2nd expansion (weatherlight, alliances, prophecy, etc.)

You can mix them any way you want (saga, visions, alliances), but you cannot go with cards from two base sets (saga and masques for example) or two 1st and two 2nd expansions...
I believe you get the idea.

I played a couple of B.Y.O.B. Tourneys and i won a couple with my sligh :)

I don't have the exact decklist, but try land destructor with burn and some fat creatureS (pups, fanatics and fireslingers are used here too, thought they are not fat)..

pillage, pup, fanatic, fireslinger, balduvian horde, ring of gix, rathi dragon, burn spells..

Of course, other decklist are viable too, you can basically make any deck you want (except for oath, blessing is from WL, and oath is from EXodus)...

Hope i helped, bye...

I'd consider a basic archtype like permission, sligh, stompy, etc. OR check out which combos have key components in different blocks. :)

Hell, grab Ice Age for Necropotence and any two other sets with good black... :) Too bad Corrupt and Yawgmoth's Will were in Urza's Saga. :)

Usually in BYOB any card that is banned in any format is not legal. So no necro, ritual, port, linn sivvi, scroll, and about a million other cards are banned. If you dont play with those rules, then smash people with a necro deck...

Hi Yoshima,
I am playing in a block party tourney this weekend. The rules are like you described. One block. No base set. I am trying to find resources that describe big decks for past blocks.
