Adventures in the Forgotten Realms on Magic Online

In case you missed it, be sure to check out all the Magic Online release info for Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms in last week's release article. Be sure to also check out the updated Treasure Chest page.


Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Class Challenge

Starting July 14 for a week, we are introducing a new way to play Magic on Magic Online: Class Challenge!

For those familiar with previous iterations of gauntlets on Magic Online, they are a way to play with preconstructed decks that we provide; no deck building necessary! The twist here is that as opposed to being given a deck randomly, you now get choose one. Your deck-building decision will be choosing a class.

You'll then do battle with other like-minded adventurers wielding any of these twelve core D&D classes in a league-style format. All twelve decklists and full event information will be published soon.


Showcase Challenge Weekend

Players looking to prove their mettle against the best players in Magic Online will want to use their QPs to enter Magic Online Champions Showcase (MOCS) events such as the returning Showcase Challenges this weekend. These MOCS events are a set of linked events designed to highlight the best players on Magic Online each season, culminating in the Champions Showcase and its prize pool of $70,000 and a Set Championship invitation.

On Saturday, July 17, we have the Vintage Showcase Challenge at 10 a.m. PT, and on Sunday, July 18, we finish things off with the Legacy Showcase Challenge at 8 a.m. PT. Each of these events requires 40 QPs to enter. The Top 8 finishers from each event will earn a qualification token to enter the appropriate Showcase Qualifier in August.
