Team Standard Super League Tonight

The latest offering in our roster of Team Super League shenanigans is Team Standard Super League. The format is a bit different from the "Conqueror" rules used for TMSL and TVSL, but the basics are the same: team-wide deck-building restrictions, rotating players, and weekly elimination tournaments. See what kinds of crazy brews these teams bring to the table in the world of Dominaria Standard!

TSSL will air each Tuesday at 5 p.m. on 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 Learn more about it (and see who's playing) here.
