For more info about M19 on MTGO, check out Alli Medwin's article here.


Treasure Chest Updates

A new set is here, and that means new prizes to find in Treasure Chests! See the full contents and the latest updates here.


Team Standard Super League Tonight

After many weeks of competition and entertainment, Team Standard Super League is drawing to a close. Join us for the finals, where the Brew Crew (Todd Stevens, SaffronOlive, and Corbin Hosler) will face off against Genesis (Corey Baumeister, Seth Manfield, and Brian Braun-Duin) for the championship. We can't predict the future, but we're pretty sure this will be some epic Magic action. Don't miss it!

TSSL airs tonight (Tuesday) at 5 p.m. on twitch.tv/magic. Learn more about it (and see who's playing) here.


Team Vintage Super League Thursday

Get your weekly dose of ridiculously complex, powerful Magic every Thursday 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 TVSL—in fact, it's a great way to learn more about Magic's most complicated format!

TVSL will air each Thursday at 6 p.m. on twitch.tv/magic. Learn more about it (and see who's playing) here.


Brawl News

In case you missed it, yesterday we published an article all about the future of Brawl, which will impact both paper Magic and MTGO. Read the full article here.
