Magic Online Championship Series Events

The Magic Online Championship Series, also known as MOCS, is a series of events in which top players can earn an invitation to the annual in-person Magic Online Championship event, as well as a Pro Tour event.

Throughout the qualifying period from the conclusion of the September 28, 2016 downtime until the October 5, 2017 downtime, players earn Qualifier Points (QPs) by playing in events that award QPs as part of their prize structure. The series will contain 12 Monthly Events, each of which qualify top players for one of the four Playoff Events. These Playoff Events qualify top players for the Magic Online Championship, a Pro Tour, and the Pro Tour Challenge event at that Pro Tour.

Monthly Events and Playoff Events include MOCS Leaderboard Points as prizes. These are not physical objects tracked in your collection, but can instead be viewed on the Wizards of the Coast website at MTGO.com/leaderboard. The MOCS Leaderboard will include all MOCS Leaderboard Points awarded in all Monthly and Playoff events in the 2017 Magic Online Championship Series.
