Pro Tour Team Series
The Pro Tour Team Series celebrates and rewards players for doing well at Pro Tours over the course of a season as part of an approved team! Players form teams of 6 and compete throughout a premier play season on the Pro Tour.
How Team Series Scoring Works
Teams are given scores based on Pro Points earned by team members at Pro Tours. The Pro Points earned by the top five of the six team members on each team will be added to a team’s score at the end of each Pro Tour, with the exception of Pro Tour Hour of Devastation, where the Pro Points earned from all six team members will be added to a team's score.
The Top 2 teams at the end of the season are invited to compete in a special team finals event at the Magic: The Gathering World Championship for their share of a $50,400 prize purse!
The total prize money for each team in the Team Finals at the Magic: The Gathering World Championship will be divided evenly to each team member who competes in the Pro Tour Team Series Finals.
