Double Masters Events Start Next Week!

Surprise! We've moved the release of Double Masters events up to Friday, July 31! Leagues will start at 10 a.m. PT with Sealed Deck, Draft, and Phantom Draft available. In addition, we're kicking off the Double Masters season with a bang and have a Super Qualifier on Sunday, August 2! If you haven't checked out the updated Magic Premier Play schedule yet and what Super Qualifiers qualify you for, go read that announcement.


Magic Online Meets Gen Con Online!

We are happy to announce that Magic Online is joining forces with Gen Con and Pastimes this year to provide some unique Magic experiences, though, due to the pandemic, we're bringing the fun to our house! The Magic at Gen Con Online events start on July 30 and run through August 2. We'll be hosting the events, but Pastimes will be taking care of the entry and the prizes for these special events.

The event formats include Vintage, Legacy, Double Masters, and a special Gen Con Cube. In addition, we're testing a new feature with Gen Con Online that will let players build decks for the Vintage and Legacy events without having the cards in their collection! Check out the article later this week to see all the details, or head over to Gen Con's website to sign up.

Vintage Cube July 1–29

That's right! Vintage Cube is back, and it's nothing like any other cube out there. It's simply overflowing with iconic cards from Magic's almost 27-year history, and you can draft the super-deck of your dreams when it arrives tomorrow, July 1, and runs for nearly the whole month, ending July 29.
