August Special Events: Double Masters 2022 Duels

We have heard plenty of feedback from players regarding adding Limited to the menu of weekly Format Challenge choices.

As an experiment, we are trying out a new event type on weekends this month that has a set number of rounds (like Preliminaries) but has greater prizes (like Challenges). For now, we are working these in around the existing schedule.

Double Masters 2022 Duels

Time: Through August 28, Saturdays and Sundays at 1 a.m. PT (8:00 UTC) and noon PT (19:00 UTC)

  • Replaces Limited Prelims in the following time slots: 1 a.m. PT Saturday, noon PT Saturday, and noon PT Sunday
  • New slot at 1 a.m. PT Sunday
    • Reminder – Saturday 1 a.m. there is no Duel due to the Modern Qualifier.

Entry: 45 Event Tickets or 450 Play Points
Format: Double Masters 2022 Sealed Deck
Min-Max Players: 65–256
Rounds: 7 (no Playoff)
Prizes:

7 900 Play Points, 50 Treasure Chests, 1 Double Masters 2022 regular set, and 40 Season 3 QPs
6 600 Play Points, 25 Treasure Chests, and 30 Season 3 QPs
5 450 Play Points, 10 Treasure Chests, and 20 Season 3 QPs
