Every Tuesday, we round up all of the biggest Magic Online news for the Weekly Announcements Blog.
Check in weekly for the latest updates!
If you liked Vintage Super League, you'll definitely like Team Modern Super League! If you didn't, you'll still probably like this one! It starts next Tuesday, February 6, and will follow the Vintage Super League schedule, airing Tuesdays at 5 p.m. PT on twitch.tv/magic. It will also involve teams, weird deck-building constraints, a novel deck-elimination system, the French word for grapefruit, and more! Get excited.
Learn more about the Team Modern Super League here.
(Wait, you need more reason to get excited? We've got you covered. Watch this video!)
This weekend brings two Pro Tour Qualifier events on Magic Online, both of which qualify winners for Pro Tour Dominaria. On Saturday, February 3, at 9 a.m. PT, the format will be Standard. There is no need to qualify for this event through a Preliminary—simply join with 30 Event Tickets or 300 Play Points.
Then, Sunday, February 4, at 7 a.m., a Rivals of Ixalan-Ixalan Sealed tournament will kick off. A red or blue PTQ Finals Entry Token is required to join this event.
Learn more about Magic Online Pro Tour Qualifiers here.
The clash over Orazca continues! Rivals of Ixalan is available for purchase in the Magic Online store, and Leagues and events are in full swing, so you can get your fill of Pirates, Dinosaurs, Merfolk, Vampires, plundering, exploring, and Orazca-ing whenever you want.
Looking for more information on future Magic Online Championship Series events? Well, good news! The MOCS schedule has been updated to reflect the future, not the past. The past is over.
You can find the schedule, along with lots more information about the series, here.
