Chaos Draft Starts Tomorrow

We are really excited for the start of Chaos Draft tomorrow! Each person that participates will get three packs, and each booster pack is from a random set. No one will have the same set packs as you, which makes for a lot of chaotic fun! To read more about the development of Chaos Draft, check out this article. To see the prize structure of the event, head here.


Nexus of Fate Update

Now that quite a few Nexus of Fate cards have made it out into the wild, we are dialing back the drop rate. Not to worry though, you still have the chance to come across them in Treasure Chests!


MOCS Monthly Saturday and PTQ Sunday

On Saturday, August 25 at 7am PT, we're having a MOCS Monthly event for the December 22 MOCS Playoff. This event will feature Core Set 2019 Sealed. Note that the MOCS yearly schedule is now lining up with the actual calendar year. To see any schedule changes, head to our schedule page.

Then on Sunday, August 26, there will be a PTQ featuring Core Set 2019 Sealed at 7am PT. The PTQ is a qualifier event for Pro Tour Ravnica Allegiance. How exciting!
