Magic Online Community Cup: Thursday

The Magic Online Community Cup has rested in the hands of the Community for the first two years of its existence. Who will hoist the the Erik "Hamtastic" Friborg Memorial Trophy this year?

Thursday featured the trial debut of a new Constructed format: Modern. Using cards from Eighth Edition on (all sets in the modern card frame), this untested format was an open proving ground for both teams. The Community Team of Luis Scott-Vargas, Bing Luke, Marshall Sutcliffe, Graham Stark, Josef Kronbichler, Chris Kuehl, Joe Dillard, Michelle Roberson, and George Efelis showed their stuff in the new format, amassing a 70-point lead heading into the final day. Friday morning's format is Standard Unified Constructed...does the Wizards Team have the chutzpah and skills to erase such a huge deficit? Tune in to find out.

If the Community Team manages to defeat the Wizards Team, all players who log on to Magic Online anytime on Wednesday, June 15; Thursday, June 16; or Friday, June 17, will be invited to a no-entry-requirement Planeswalker-format Constructed tournament on July 3! All players who play in this four-round, Swiss-pairings event will receive one Magic 2011 booster pack. All players who earn 12 match points by going undefeated will also receive any three Magic Online booster packs of their choice—yes, any three!

If the Wizards Team wins, however, players will not go empty handed; all players who logged in between June 13 and June 17 will receive a Darksteel Relic promotional card with a June 17, 2011 date stamp!
