Vintage Super League Week 5

VSL is entering Week 5, 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 one of Magic's deepest formats!

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

Ready to start playing? Grab a deck and join the Vintage League for matches any time or play for greater rewards with the Vintage Challenge every Saturday at 10 a.m. PT.
