On top of the usual prerelease tournaments on Friday and Saturday, we will also be hosting a variety of other events to choose from. You can have fun trying out a prerelease pack without having to commit to a tournament in a sealed open play event. You can pick up a couple of Jumpstart packs and make a deck with those for another fun way to try out the new set. Give a try to the new Commander decks. We can also sanction a draft if you'd like.
All Open Play events are a casual format. It's a way for you to play some Magic without having to commit to entering a tournament. Buy what you like, stay and play for however long you want, play whoever else is looking for a game too. Some examples include
- Jumpstart- Each player purchases 2 Jumpstart boosters, shuffles them up, and plays a regular game of MtG. Each booster has 20 cards including land and follows 1 of 10 different themes that you won't know until you open your pack and take a look. All Jumpstart product is compatible with other Jumpstart products, so if you want to pick up a The Brothers' War pack and a Dominaria United pack, you can totally do that. You can find more info on The Brothers' War Jumpstart product here
- Sealed Deck- Pick up a tournament pack, build a 40-card deck, and have a good time
- Commander- There will be 2 decks to choose from. 100 card deck, no duplicates, 1 is your commander. Best played in a group setting, but one on one can be great fun too. You can find out more about the decks here
We have scheduled 3 main sealed deck events for prerelease; 1 on Friday and 2 on Saturday. Also, we will be hosting drafts on demand as well
Sealed Deck Tournament
A sealed deck tournament consists of purchasing 6 boosters, which you use to build a 40-card deck. You are then assigned an opponent based on your current win/loss record. Number of rounds are determined by the number of participants. A prerelease Sealed Deck Tournament is very similar, except for the cost of 1 tournament pack ($29.99 plus tax), you will receive-
- 6 booster packs
- A randomly selected 30th Anniversary promo card
- 1 Random premium foil date-stamped rare or mythic rare from the set
- 1 MTG Arena code card
- 1 Deck Box
- 1 Spindown Life Counter
There will be 2 set boosters in the prize pool for each participant, to be divided among the top players.
If draft is more your thing, we can do that too. Entry will be the cost of 3 draft boosters ($14.97 plus tax). Prize support will be in the form of 1 draft pack in the prize pool per participant, to be divided among the top players
