Midweek Magic: Phantom Quick Draft

Want to try out drafting in a chill environment without entry costs or time pressures? Try out this week's Phantom Quick Draft in Midweek Magic.

In this event, you get to draft Innistrad: Crimson Vow cards to see what the Draft format is like against bots who don't mind if you want to take your time to read every card multiple times before selecting one and passing on the pack, and won't slow you down if you're a fast picker.

Matches are played against real players once you've finished drafting and assembled your deck. You only draft once, but you can play as many games as you want with the deck you drafted, and since this is a Phantom draft, the cards you pick aren't added to your collection.

Standard Metagame Challenge: November 19–22

Now that Innistrad: Crimson Vow has swept into the Standard game with a bloodthirsty flourish, it's time for the return of the Standard Metagame Challenge!
