New format “Frontier” in January


January is going to one awesome month for Magic fans! In addition to prereleases of the new set Aether Revolt (January 14-15), Friday Night Magic tournaments and Magic Tuesdays, we will also start playing new format Frontier!  If you have not heard about it yet, it is what can be called an extended Standard, so a format with bigger cardpool. It gives room for use of your imagination and crazy deck ideas. Combining all sets starting from Magic 2015, it grows every time after the release of new sets. It is the best way to make use of your cards that rotated out, to play fun decks and, of course, to have fun on Saturdays!

All information about the format you can find here.

So no more words! Find all your standard cards, combine them with what you recently opened from the boosters, make a deck and join us on Saturdays in January! The first tournament is on January 7, and we are planning to play Frontier the entire month (except January 14, because it is the prerelease weekend, and January 21 as it is already full of other tournaments in the Netherlands). If it turns out to be popular and you will like it, we will continue with it! So don’t forget to bring your friends 🙂

Team Sealed – GP Practice


Just a few weeks before Grand Prix Rotterdam we decided to organise a practice tournament just to let everyone get comfortable with the format, because it is not a very usual one. Briefly about the format: 12 boosters for the team, a joint sealed pool, 3 decks… Hm, seems like that’s all you need to know! So on 23 of October come with your team to test the new limited format 🙂

Format: Team Sealed (about the format)
Participation fee (per team): €55

REL: regular

Starting time: 11:00
Store open: 10:00

You can bring your own food. Drinks are also available in the store.

The store can fit in max. 24 teams. Although we do not expect to get so many participating teams, it’s always good to preregister and be safe.
You can send your details to info@lab-monkey.nl.

Prize pool:
3 boosters per team in the prize pool. Distribution of the prizes will be announced during the tournament, but expect it to be a bit more spread out, because it is a regular tournament with the intention to test and gain experience.
