Grand Prix are the biggest open Magic events run around the world. These exciting three-day festivals of all that is Magic feature a two-day main event with thousands of dollars in cash prizes. Plus, you’ll find artist signings and more side events than you could possibly play in your most fevered Magic-induced dreams.



Each Grand Prix’s main event features one of a number of formats, including:


Side events, which take place all weekend concurrent with the main event, are run with any of these formats, plus a plethora of serious, casual, and even some wholly unique formats.

Prizes for the main event of an individual Grand Prix scale with the size of the event, with each Grand Prix awarding a prize purse of at least $35,000.  A team Grand Prix will hand out at least $45,000. Players are also awarded Pro Points for high finishes. The Top 8 automatically earn invitations and airfare to the Pro Tour.

Every player will receive a special promo card just for signing up, while supplies last. In addition, Grand Prix awards a multiplier of 8x for all Planeswalker Points earned, and side events carry a multiplier of 3x.

Prizes and promotions may vary based upon the Grand Prix Organizer. Below is the base payout that Tournament Organizers use for Grand Prix tournaments.
