Legacy Cube Until April 25

Do you like that one card, from that one set, and you just never see it anymore? Fear not, Legacy Cube is in full swing, and you may see it again! Legacy Cube is full of some of the best cards from across Magic's history, working together in ways you can only experience in a Cube. And the fun doesn't stop for nearly a full month, ending April 25.

For more information on this update of the Legacy Cube, check out designer Paul Cheon's article.


London Mulligan Testing

This is a reminder that London Mulligan testing will begin April 10 on Magic Online and end May 1. This mulligan is part of an experiment run by Magic R&D in their never-ending efforts to improve the game we all know and love. This will apply to all formats, in all events and casual games.

As MTGO is the best and largest way to play classic formats like Legacy and Vintage, this test will provide a critical mass of data to help R&D make a final determination whether to adopt this mulligan for Magic as a whole. And importantly, it will allow Mythic Championship competitors to practice their Modern game under the same conditions that they'll face in London.

Modern MOCS Playoff Saturday

This Saturday, April 13, there will be a Magic Online Championship Series Playoff Event! The format will be Modern, and things will kick off at 7 a.m. PT. Only players who have qualified via a recent MOCS Preliminary Event are eligible for entry. The Top 2 finishers earn spots at Mythic Championship Barcelona, and the winner also earns an invite to the 2019 Magic Online Championship held next year.

Learn more about MOCS events here.


Limited MOCS Preliminary Sunday

On Sunday, April 14, there will be a Magic Online Championship Series Preliminary event for 2019 MOCS! The format will be Phantom Sealed, the set will be Ravnica Allegiance, and things will kick off at 7 a.m. PT. MOCS Preliminaries are eight rounds of Swiss and require 35 Qualifier Points to enter.
