Regular Events

For each event you play in, starting Monday 9/29/2014 through Saturday 1/10/2015, you will accrue Planeswalker style points towards qualifying for the Championships. For example, if you want to qualify for the Twenty Sided KTK Standard Championship, each Standard tournament you play in earns you points towards that Championship event. The same follows for sealed/draft events and Modern/Legacy events.

Spotlight : # 1 : Are you a Leader?

by Lauren Bilanko

Does your to-do list have way more items not crossed off than you care to admit? With over a month of summer left to go, this is not the season for feeling overwhelmed. Call on Ajani to harness those leadership skills, gather your allies, and accomplish tasks you never thought possible!

What does it take to be a leader, and not just any leader, a great leader?
Confidence. Self Respect. Responsibility. Persistence. Purpose.

Gather your Allies
Your allies are people you can trust and who trust you. People who believe in your idea, want to be a part of making it a reality, and who will stand by you through thick and thin. They will follow your lead and grow by your example.

Take Responsibility
It is your duty to advance the aims of the goal and those who serve it. Your words are inspirational, your allies are listening even when you think they are not. When making decisions, weigh the facts, consider all the solutions and their consequences, value your objectives, and clearly communicate your decision. If you make a mistake, admit it, resolve it, and move on. Never apologize for making a mistake or make excuses for your actions. Mistakes are how we learn and grow. It is not that we made the mistake, but how we dealt with the mistake that we made. Your actions set the example others will follow. Set good ones.
