Team Modern Super League Kicks Off Tonight

The wait is over! (Whew. It's been a long week.) Tonight marks the first episode of Team Modern Super League, which will stream live at twitch.tv/magic starting at 5 p.m. PT every Tuesday for the next several weeks. Three-person teams, made up of beloved personalities from the Magic community, will face off in a "conqueror"-style tournament where both decks and players can be eliminated. Even those with a deep well of Modern experience will be tested by the novel format, and we're just about guaranteed to see some wild new lines of play.

MOCS Playoff Event Feb. 10

This Saturday, February 10, brings a MOCS Playoff Event to Magic Online. It will begin at 7 a.m. PT, and the format will be Standard. Only players who have finished with six or more wins in a MOCS Monthly Event that has occurred since the previous MOCS Playoff Event are eligible to join, so if that describes you, congratulations! The top two finishers will receive invitations to the 2018 Magic Online Championship, as well as Pro Tour Dominaria and the Pro Tour Challenge.

Learn more about MOCS events here.


MOCS Monthly Event Feb. 11

On Sunday, February 11, a MOCS Monthly Event will kick off at 7.am. PT. The format will be Rivals of Ixalan-Ixalan Sealed Deck. Players can enter with 35 Qualifier Points (QPs), and top finishers qualify for the Playoff Event on May 5.

Learn more about MOCS events here.
