CHAOS DRAFT! February 5–19

Flex your deck-building skills during February's CHAOS DRAFT!, a format that requires players to contemplate meta-archetypes over the curated archetypes typically found in a cube. CHAOS DRAFT! runs through February 19—plenty of time to smash face amidst the Pandemonium.

Visions, Weatherlight, Stronghold, Exodus, Urza's Legacy, Urza's Destiny, Planeshift, Apocalypse, Torment, Judgment, Legions, Scourge, Darksteel, Fifth Dawn, Betrayers of Kamigawa, Saviors of Kamigawa, Guildpact, Dissension, Coldsnap, Planar Chaos, Future Sight, Morningtide, Eventide, Conflux, Alara Reborn, Worldwake, Mirrodin Besieged, New Phyrexia, Dark Ascension, Dragon's Maze, Born of the Gods, Journey Into Nyx, Fate Reforged, Oath of the Gatewatch, Eldritch Moon, Aether Revolt, Hour of Devastation, and Rivals of Ixalan


Preliminary Schedule Adjustment

In order to improve the Premier Play experience and maximize participation, we are adjusting the formats of three of our weekly Preliminary events. We expect that there will be additional adjustments in upcoming months as we continue to fine-tune the system. We welcome additional feedback on this system at MagicOnlineFeedback@wizards.com.

  • Veil of Summer no longer provides hexproof from blue or black to activated abilities.
  • Primitive Justice no longer causes a game reset.
  • Cards chosen with Niv-Mizzet Reborn's ability now appear in the game log.
