Through nefarious means, the evil Phyrexians establish a foothold on Dominaria. They secretly transform ordinary citizens into deadly sleeper agents who go about their lives, ignorant of their new purpose. As word of the Phyrexian incursion spreads, the people of Dominaria attempt to band together as the sleeper agents threaten to tear them apart. Learn more about the set here

What's more, not only can you pick up any of The Brothers' War product; individual or sealed boxes of boosters, decks, bundles, and Jumpstart- for the first time ever we can also sanction draft events. 

Open Play

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

Sealed Events

We have scheduled 3 main sealed deck events for prerelease; 1 on Friday and 2 on Saturday. Also, for the first time ever we will be hosting drafts on demand as well

Sealed Deck Tournament

Typically, 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. The Brothers' War sealed deck event is like this, but more. For the cost of 1 tournament pack ($24.99 plus tax), you will receive

  • 6 booster packs
  • 1 of 4 randomly selected 30th Anniversary promo cards
  • 1 Random premium foil date-stamped rare or mythic rare from the set
  • 1 MTG Arena code card
  • 1 Deck Box
  • 1 Spindown die
  • 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
