New Play Programmes – Amonkhet

If you somehow got to this page, you have come to the right place! Please stay with us till the end to hear everything about new play programmes related to Amonkhet events, which means that, in addition to weekly Magic Tuesday and FNM events, PPTQ’s and other big tournaments, we will have some additions to satisfy Magic fans of all levels and experience!

So here you can find information about:

MAGIC OPEN HOUSE

This event is for people who have never played Magic before, need a Magic refresher, or want to introduce a friend to the game! Show up, get a Welcome Deck, and play Magic against other newer players. If you already know how to play, bring a friend who might enjoy Magic and introduce them to the world of Magic: The Gathering! New players and their teachers have a chance to get a premium foil full-art Amonkhet-themed basic land!

It will take place in the evening of Tuesday, April 18, and Thursday, April 20. As a part of weekly events, Magic Tuesday and Board Games Evening, there will be a few experienced players who would love to assist you with some basic rules and introduce you to Magic. So don’t be shy and drop by for a quick explanation or even a few games. Besides, these premium basic lands are awesome 😉

*While supplies last.

PRERELEASE

Prerelease is one of the funnest and most enjoyable tournaments of the year! It’s the time when you get to play with new cards for the first time, open new boosters, experience fresh limited format and, of course, do all of that with your new and old friends! May attention to the special deal: playing more is cheaper!

This event will take place during the weekend of April 22-23, you can find all information about it here >

PS: please note that there are no FNM tournaments prior to the prerelease, so on April 21 we will close earlier – at 18:00. Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience, and we hope that gives you enough time to rest before the prerelease streak!


RELEASE DRAFTS

On Friday, April 28, is the release of the new set Amonkhet, which means new products (booster packs, booster boxes, Planewalker Decks, Bundles…) and singles will be available for purchase! So be among the first Magic fans to open more packs and try out new cards in your constructed decks 🙂

To celebrate the release, we announce Friday the day of Limited format – during FNM of April 28 we will play only drafts! Every player will receive a stamped foil rare release card, and you also have a chance to win new boosters and regular FNM promo cards.

Participation fee: €13.50 (or bring your own 3 boosters + €5 for the prize pool). We play 3 rounds of Swiss (you are able to play in all rounds).
Prize pool: 1,5 booster packs of Amonkhet per player go into the prize pool, and you will be awarded prizes if you have a positive record, which is either 2-1 match wins or 3-0. Special promo card to every participant!


MAGIC LEAGUE

Pay once – and play for a month. Sounds good, right? This is actually what Magic League is about!

Participation fee (for which you receive the starting kit): €12,50
Prize pool: promo cards (among which you can find special premium ones!), special foil full-art Amonkhet basic lands and special Amonkhet-themed 4-sided dice! Definitely something you would want to get for your collection 😉

League is a quick-start, casual program for players of all levels. Upon joining the league, you will receive:

  • 3 Amonkhet booster packs
  • 1 Amonkhet league card (for your match results)
  • 1 League card storage box

You build a 30-card minimum deck from the 3 booster packs you receive at the start. You may play any number of matches, but you can submit the results of the match with the same player only once per week (record them on the league card), so, for example, at the end of the league you can have maximum 4 official matches against the same player.

Matches should be just one game, and each player may take one free mulligan per match.

Each week, starting from Monday, you may purchase (€4 – no special discounts apply) and add an additional Amonkhet booster pack to your deck (minimum deck size always stays the same, but maximum is up to you) to make your deck stronger. For example, this is how it will work:

  • Week 1: Monday, May 1–Sunday, May 7, 2017 (three initial boosters)
  • Week 2: Monday, May 8–Sunday, May 14, 2017 (additional booster)
  • Week 3: Monday, May 15–Sunday, May 21, 2017 (additional booster)
  • Week 4: Monday, May 22–Sunday, May 28, 2017 (additional booster)

This event will start after the release on Monday, May 1, and will run the entire month, till May 28. You will be able to drop by at any point (even during the last week) and receive your starting kit (3 Amonkhet booster packs, 1 Amonkhet league card for your match results, and 1 League card storage box). If you start after week 1, you will be able to immediately purchase and add boosters to your deck for each week you missed!

League Days

As you might have noticed, this tournament does not have a specific time, and participants are free to play their matches whenever they want! But we would like to encourage everyone to come and play matches during the league days, when we expect the majority of participants to be available: in the evening during Magic Tuesday and before/during FNM.

But to help you play enough league matches, we will ask participants to leave their FB or mobile phone number details, so that other players in the tournament could contact each other and schedule a match. However, you can abstain from providing your contact details if you do not want to.


GAME DAY

Bring your best Standard deck and compete to become the champion! Top finishers earn new booster packs, special prizes, including full-art promo cards and a playmat for the winner. This tournament is enjoyable for both new and experienced players, and you can come with any deck you want – the purpose is to explore and enjoy a new Standard format with friends 🙂

Format: Standard (decklists are not required)
Starting time: 12:00
Participation fee: €5
Prize pool: 1,5 booster packs per player go into the prize pool + special promo cards
