Showcase Challenge Weekends

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, starting with this season, invitations to the 2023 World Championship!

First up this Saturday, July 23, we have the Modern Showcase Challenge at 8 a.m. PT (15:00 UTC), and on Sunday, July 24, we have the Pioneer Showcase Challenge at 6 a.m. PT (13:00 UTC).

Then the following week we finish things off on Saturday, July 30, with the Pauper Showcase Challenge at 8 a.m. PT (15:00) and on Sunday, July 31, with the Legacy Showcase Challenge at 8 a.m. PT (15:00).

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.

Learn more about Showcase Challenge events.
