See how you match up against your local community, earn prizes, and become a champion in this unique day of competition taking place all around the world! Magic Game Day is an exciting opportunity for players around the world to join in playing Standard in their local communities with the newest cards Magic has to offer on a global scale.
Magic Game Day events are one-day tournaments using the Standard format. These tournaments are held at local game and hobby stores three weeks after a new set becomes available for purchase. Game Day events provide a great way for players to see how the newest set has impacted the shape of Standard.
Each participant in the Magic Game Day tournament receives a full-art promo card, and each player in the Top 8 receives a premium full-art promo card, while supplies last.
The winner of each Game Day tournament receives a special Champion playmat to commemorate their victory. This limited-edition playmat is only awarded to the winner, so be sure to bring your A-game!
Additional prizes may be offered by local independent tournament organizers, so check with your organizer for additional information.
While mainly focused on providing a fun, relaxed environment in which to enjoy Magic, Game Day events are many players’ first experiences with competitive Magic. They offer a great opportunity to become familiar with some of the rules associated with the more competitive levels of play. Here are some important things to keep in mind:
- Players should bring their own Standard deck, which is a minimum of 60 cards and has a sideboard of up to 15 cards
- Players should remember to bring their own method for tracking life totals, as well as tokens, card sleeves, and counters
