There will be no premier-level events on Magic Online this weekend. But there will be Dominaria Prereleases everywhere, in stores and online! Dominaria Sealed Deck events will be available on MTGO starting on April 20, and Draft will be available as of April 23.
Heroes old and new are gathering on Dominaria, ready to face the evils of the Multiverse. So get to a Prerelease or two—in person or online—and dig into the legendary home plane of Magic.
Team Modern Super League is in the home stretch. Many spells have been cast, experimental decks have been tested, teams have been eliminated… but it's not over quite yet! Tune in for the last few weeks of epic Modern action.
Following Wednesday's downtime, 1v1 Commander on Magic Online will have an updated banned list. To see the full list, check out this article on the MTGO Tumblr page.
The Magic Online Format Challenges continue every weekend for Modern, Vintage, 1v1 Commander, Legacy, and Pauper formats—and now, a brand-new offering: Brawl! To learn more about this exciting new multiplayer format, check out Gavin Verhey's article here.
