Magic Event Tweaks

April 1st, 2014 is our three-year anniversary. It’s been a wild ride, and we’re always looking to improve. In addition to our huge schedule additions of Cube Draft League and Eternal Magic League, we’re changing a couple things here and there.

Monthly Top 8 Standard

Each month (schedule permitting), we will have a regular Standard Tournament with a cut to top 8. These tournaments, by and large, will be Magic Game Days and Grand Prix Trials. For GP Trials, we will proritize and schedule in the following order:
- Grand Prix events within easy driving distance to NYC, e.g. GP Boston would be weighted higher than GP Portland
- Grand Prix format is Standard, e.g. GP Los Angeles (Standard) would be weighted higher than GP Nashville (Sealed)

FNM Draft Prize Payout

Starting Friday, April 5th our FNM Draft prize payout will change to one pack per match win. All other drafts will be the normal prize payout. Undefeated players will receive an additional prize pack and the regular FNM promo he/she would regularly receive. Winless players will also receive a participation pack provided they play each round.

We want FNM to be a more welcoming environment for newer players, and we think this is a great opportunity to do so.

Saturday Draft Times

We are altering Saturday Draft times slightly. Saturday afternoon draft will now have a 3:30pm signup and 4pm start. Saturday night draft will have a 7pm signup and 7:30pm start.

Note that all night drafts regardless of day now start at the same time (Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday).

Changes are already in the calendar!

D&D Encounters : Legacy of the Crystal Shard


THE SUNDERING, part 2

Evil Stirs in Icewind Dale
The people of Icewind Dale have long stood against the perils of the North. For most of these folk, the events that shook the region a hundred years ago are now distant memories. But what was defeated was not destroyed, and the sinister influence of the Crystal Shard, Crenshinibon, has now wormed its way into the very land of Icewind Dale. As evil forces converge on Ten Towns, the people of the North face their greatest trial yet. Fortunately, they won’t have to face it alone.
