It's time for San Diego Comic Con! Wizards of the Coast will be in attendance, and we'll be bringing all manner of Magic: The Gathering events. We even have a site in the Gaslamp Quarter this year! SDCC runs from July 12-15, with a preview night July 11. Remember, panels at SDCC fill up quickly and space is VERY limited this year, so plan appropriately!

Magic: The Gathering Highlights

  • Check out the MTG Experience at 431 J Street in the Gaslamp District!
    • Demo Magic: The Gathering on traditional and digital platforms – including iPad!
    • Get in on special evening events.
    • Purchase your favorite licensed merchandise and latest Magic product.
    • Find a store near you with the WPN Store Locator.
    • Be a part of the Magic community!
    • Pick up Magic swag including a Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 promo code, which will unlock one new playable card in each of your decks accessed through game play.

The MTG Experience will be open noon–10pm on July 12–14 and 9am–6pm on July 15. Check in at the MTG Experience on Foursquare or Facebook and you may receive a random alternate art Euro land card.*
