Vintage Super League Week 4

VSL is entering Week 4, so don't miss your chance to get a weekly dose of ridiculously powerful Magic every Tuesday evening. The team-based deck-building rules and tournament structure make it even more interesting and unpredictable. You don't have to play (or even understand) Vintage to enjoy VSL—in fact, it's a great way to learn more about Magic's deepest format!

Check it out this Tuesday at 6 p.m. on twitch.tv/magic. Learn more about it (and see who's playing) here.


CHAOS DRAFT! Starts Feb. 13

Flex your deck-building skills during next week's CHAOS DRAFT!, a format that requires players to contemplate meta-archetypes over the curated archetypes typically found in a cube. CHAOS DRAFT! runs February 13 through 27—plenty of time to smash face amidst the Pandemonium.

On Saturday, February 9, there will be a Standard MCQ Finals at 9 a.m. PT. The event will cost 30 Event Tickets or 300 Play Points. The winner will receive invitations to Mythic Championship London and its associated Mythic Championship Challenge.
