Magic Events


Standard
Standard is a Constructed event.  It uses decks of 60 cards, drawn from the most recent sets of Magic cards.  We charge $6.00  per person for Standard. $1 of this goes towards League rewards. A promo pack will be available as an additional prize for any Standard event. Registration for Standard takes place at 4:00 from Tuesday to Friday, and tournament starts at 4:15 

The current sets available for use in Standard are Ixalan, Rivals of Ixalan, Dominaria, Core Set 2019, Guilds of Ravnica, Ravnica Allegiance, War of the Spark, and Core 2020. In October of 2019, Ixalan, Rivals of Ixalan, Dominaria, and Core Set 2019 will rotate out of the format. 

Brewed Awakenings
Brewed Awakenings is a Standard event. It costs $10 to enter, including $1 towards League rewards. Deck price is limited to $100, and players are encouraged to create original deck designs.  The decklist for the winning deck will be published: if it is found to be original, the winning player will receive a special promo pack in addition to regular prizing. Brewed Awakenings registration (with decklist) takes place at 10:30 AM on Saturday, and the game begins at 11. $1 is put aside for League rewards, and Brewed Awakenings participation counts extra towards League rewards.

Draft
Draft is the Premier event for Magic.  In Draft, each player chooses cards in turn from a succession of randomized booster packs, until all cards have been claimed: players then build a deck from the resulting card pool. Draft costs $20, including $1 towards League rewards. Participation in Draft counts extra towards League rewards.  A special promo pack is included in prizing: a second special promo pack will be included if the event has eight or more players. In addition, the winner receives an invitation to the major tournament at the end of the season.

Modern
Modern is a Constructed event.  It uses decks of 60 cards, drawn from any cards published since 2002 (making the decks very powerful, and Modern games very fast).  Modern events cost $11, including $1 towards League rewards. Modern registration takes place at 6:30 on Thursday, with play beginning at 7 PM.

Commander
Commander is a multiplayer format, usually played by 3 or 4 players.  It uses decks of 100 cards, including a legendary “Commander” creature which determines the colours of the deck.  Commander events cost $6, including $1 to League.  It has its own way of determining first and second place, who split the prize pool more-or-less evenly. Commander registration takes place at 7:00 on Tuesday, with play beginning at 7:15, and 2:00 on Saturday, with play beginning at 2:15.

Prizing
All money collected for an event (minus amounts towards League or other costs) is split between the winning players.  Half of the prizing goes to the first place winner, and the rest is split between second-place winners. All prizing is normally paid out as store credit. Certain events - generally, Standard or Draft - carry additional prizing in the form of Promo Packs.


Promo Packs

Promo packs are special packs of cards provided by Wizards of the Coast as prizing for special events. These include a small set of cards which are often quite valuable - usually worth $10 or more.  A small number of "special" promo packs are available for Draft and Brewed Awakenings, which are even more valuable.

Magic League
Magic League will allow players to win just by playing! Winning an event gives 3 points, coming in second (or tied for second) gives one point.  For Draft and Brewed Awakenings, winning yields 5 points, coming in second gives 2 points, and participation gives 1 point.  At the end of the season all prizing collected for League will be given out as store credit on the following schedule: 1st = 35%, 2nd = 25%, 3rd = 20%, 4th = 20%.


Casual Play

Players may have an impromptu or casual event at the store.  If four or more players are involved, it's results will count towards Magic League.
