Prerelease IXALAN – September 23/24

Tribal, pirates, Dinosaurs – and this is just the start. Ixalan is going to be one of the most amazing adventures! So if you enjoyed Zendikar, you definitely will not want to miss this one.

Prerelease is one of the most wonderful things in Magic! Not only you get to play with the newest cards, but you also get to see all your friends, make new ones, explore fresh sealed format and have a lot of fun! It is the time when all players gather together and enjoy the game to its fullest ????

In ’t Lab we are organising 6 prerelease events: single sealed events at 11:00 and 17:00, and 2HG sealed events at 17:00.
The first event you play is €25, but each next is just €20!

Where to get the deck?
It is a sealed format, so you do not need to bring a deck with you. Instead, each player will receive a prerelease pack which contains 6 boosters, 1 premium foil stamped card (drawn from any rare or mythic rare in the set), 1 Spindown Life Counter,  1 deckbuilding advice insert. You will construct a deck of at least 40 cards and then explore the format battling against other mages (maximum 4 rounds of Swiss, you will be able to play in each round). More information about Sealed format.

Prizes
2 booster packs of Ixalan per player go into the prize pool. At the end of each tournament boosters are awarded to players based on the number of wins they have – you get prizes if you have at least 2 math wins. The more you win, the more you get!

Food
You can bring your own food. There are also drinks available in the store.

Questions
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to drop by, send us an email or message on Facebook.

We hope to see you at the Prerelease!

Magic League – Hour of Devastation

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!) 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 Hour of Devastation booster packs
  • 1 Hour of Devastation 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 Hour of Devastation 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, July 17–Sunday, July 23, 2017 (three initial boosters)
  • Week 2: Monday, July 24–Sunday, July 30, 2017 (additional booster)
  • Week 3: Monday, July 31–Sunday, August 6, 2017 (additional booster)
  • Week 4: Monday, August 7–Sunday, August 13, 2017 (additional booster)

This event will start after the release on Monday, July 17, and will run the entire month, till August 13. You will be able to drop by at any point (even during the last week) and receive your starting kit (3 Hour of Devastation booster packs, 1 Hour of Devastation 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 FNM on Fridays.

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.
