Ravnica Block Flashback Draft

No Return to, no Guilds of. This is the City of Guilds, my friends, and the Guildpact and Dissension that followed. Starting tomorrow, January 29, you can draft those Selesnya Evangels and, I guess, other cards if you want to. There's certainly no shortage of classic cards in this block.

In addition to the standard entry options of 10 Event Tickets or 100 Play Points, you can also enter this event with 2 Event Tickets plus 2 boosters of a single set within the block. This event is Phantom—the cards you draft will not be added to your collection.

Limited PTQ Saturday

On Saturday, February 1, there will be a Limited PTQ at 7 a.m. PT! The set will be Theros Beyond Death, and the event will cost 1 Red Limited PTQ Token. You can also join with 40 MOCS Qualifier Points. The winner qualifies for their choice of events in Series 2 of the 2020 Players Tour in May.
