Surprise! Vintage Cube!

You asked, and we responded (or, rather, we asked, and you responded)! With some of us having some extra at-home time to fill, the Vintage Cube is back for two weeks starting tomorrow and running until April 1. This encore presentation is the same cube we ran back in December and January, so we don't have a change list to publish.

To make room for the Vintage Cube, we've moved the Invasion Block Flashback Draft to April 29 and delayed the start of the Modern Cube to April 1. We're aware that some Invasion Block fans may be disappointed by the change, so we'll explore some ways to spice up the event when it does launch.

Thanks, and good luck in your leagues.


Limited PTQ Saturday

On Saturday, March 21, there will be a Limited PTQ at 7 a.m. PT! The set will be Theros Beyond Death, and the event will cost 1 Red Limited PTQ Token. You can also join with 40 MOCS Qualifier Points. The winner qualifies for their choice of events in Series 2 of the 2020 Players Tour later this spring.

NOTE: Any remaining Red Limited PTQ Entry Tokens must be used by April 5, the date of the last Magic Online PTQ of this qualifying round. As a reminder, these Tokens can be used for either Limited or Constructed PTQ events.

Modern PTQ Sunday

On Sunday, March 22, there will be a Modern PTQ at 9 a.m. PT! The entry fee is 1 Red PTQ Finals Token or 40 MOCS Qualifier Points. The winner qualifies for their choice of events in Series 2 of the 2020 Players Tour later this spring.
