Vintage Cube Returns!

Black Lotus, Ancestral Recall, Demonic Tutor . . . no, that's not just a list of absurdly powerful old Magic cards (though it's also that). It's a tiny sample of what you can find in the Vintage Cube on Magic Online. It's nothing like any other cube out there, and it's overflowing with iconic cards from Magic's entire 25-year history. Draft the super-deck of your dreams.

Vintage Cube runs June 13 through July 5. To see the full card list and the most recent changes, go here.

PTQs June 16 and 17

It's a double PTQ weekend on Magic Online. Saturday, June 16, beginning at 7 a.m. PT, the format will be Dominaria Sealed Deck. A red or blue PTQ Finals Entry Token is required to join this event. Sunday, June 17, beginning at 9 a.m. PT, the format will be Modern. Players may enter with 30 Event Tickets or 300 Play Points. The winner of each event will qualify for Pro Tour Guilds of Ravnica this fall.

Learn more about Magic Online Pro Tour Qualifiers here.

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 Thursday at 6 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.
