The resistance is building! Urza continues to build a collection of artifacts that will defeat the Phyrexian invasion. With the assistance of his student Jhoira and Karn, the silver golem, Urza surveys the Thran mana rig in Shiv and uncovers its primary purpose.

Urza's Legacy, the second set in the Urza's Saga block, goes on sale in the Magic Online Store on Monday, June 21 at 9:00 AM PDT (16:00 UTC). Urza's Legacy becomes legal in ALL appropriate Legacy and Classic-based formats following the June 16 downtime. Classic-based formats include Classic, Tribal Wars (Classic), Classic with Vanguard, Prismatic, 100-Card Singleton, and Pauper.

All appropriate Legacy and Classic-based 8-player Queues, Daily Events, Premier Events, and Weekend Challenges will switch to a mix of Urza's Saga and Urza's Legacy prizes and all appropriate 2-player Queues will switch to Urza's Legacy prizes following the June 23 downtime.

From Monday, June 21, until the downtime on Wednesday, June 30, players will be able to play in casual Urza's Legacy drafts in the Casual Draft room. These 4, 6, and 8-player drafts will be Nix Tix, pay no prizes, and have 0 k-value.

Although players may have multiple accounts qualified for the Urza's Legacy Release Events Championship, players are not permitted to own more than one account entered in the event. Players are not permitted to have secondary accounts played by another person. If a player is discovered to have more than 1 account playing in a Championship before, during, or after the event, appropriate penalties will be applied (including disqualification from the event with no refund of product or event tickets).

Playing on another person's account, selling your account, etc. are all violations of the Terms of Service. If you play in these, win, and expect to get your prize, be very, very sure you are on your own account. We do not recognize "I and a friend jointly own the account," "It's my brother's account but he gave it to me," or similar. The only exception is an adult may authorize a single dependent child age 13-17 to play on an account that adult has purchased.

It will be the player's responsibility to make sure that they have been properly entered into this event and are able to join it PRIOR to the start of the Championship. If a player is qualified and is unable to join the Championship, they will need to contact customer service for assistance.

For all Urza's Legacy Release Events, Wizards of the Coast reserves the right to modify, reschedule, and/or delete any tournament if, in its sole judgment, tournament integrity has been compromised by an unforeseen technical issue.
