UMA Flashback Drafts Tomorrow

Lorwyn Flashback Drafts are winding down to make room for Ultimate Masters Drafts, back by popular demand! If you missed the action last time, not to worry—UMA Flashback Drafts start March 6 and end March 13—a whole week to draft your favorite bombs.

Players may enter with any of the following options: 10 Event Tickets; 1 Ultimate Masters booster + 3 Event Tickets; or 100 Play Points.


Ravnica Remix Drafts March 13

Available March 13, Ravnica Remix is a digital-exclusive Phantom experience made from two lists of cards from Guilds of Ravnica and Ravnica Allegiance, curated by our very own Magic R&D. The two sets are mixed into two different packs. The set will be drafted in A, B, B style, meaning the second and third packs are the same as one another and different than the first pack.

The contents of the first pack include a higher density of multicolored cards. The second and third packs have more monocolored cards and mana fixing. Ravnica Remix encourages players to mix and match guilds and discover playstyles not possible in either GRN or RNA draft.

The Ravnica Remix league entry options will match our other Phantom offerings: entry will be 10 Event Tickets or 100 Play Points.

Some cards from those sets have been omitted from Ravnica Remix packs. The full list of cards found in Ravnica Remix packs is below.

Find more information here alongside the official announcement for Modern Horizons.


Vintage Super League Week 8

VSL is entering Week 8, so don't miss your chance to get a weekly dose of ridiculously powerful Magic every Tuesday evening. The 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 VSL—in fact, it's a great way to learn more about one of Magic's deepest formats!

Check it out this Tuesday at 6 p.m. on twitch.tv/magic. Learn more about it (and see who's playing) here.

Ready to start playing? Grab a deck and join the Vintage League for matches any time or play for greater rewards with the Vintage Challenge every Saturday at 10 a.m. PT.


QP & Format Point Reminder

The scramble for Qualifier Points (QPs) and Format Points is on as the first round of Playoff events for the 2019 MOCS approaches.

  • There are two more chances to qualify for the first MOCS Playoff event of the year on April 13—Limited (March 16) and Standard (March 24). Join these events with 35 MOCS QPs.
  • If you're in the four Format Focus lanes, you can continue accruing Format Points in Challenges and Leagues. Get 35 in a single format by its Playoff date, and you can join—Modern (March 23), Legacy (March 24), Vintage (March 30), Pauper (March 31).

Limited MOCS Open Saturday

The first MOCS Open of 2019 will take place on Saturday, March 9, that begins at 7 a.m. PT. The format is Ravnica Allegiance Sealed Deck, and players may join with 40 Event Tickets or 400 Play Points. These events are not phantom, and the contents of the packs opened will be added to participants' collections. The winner will qualify for the 2019 Magic Online Championship as well as Mythic Championship Barcelona.

Need help in the MOCS Open? Join the #MOCS Chat room inside Magic Online to get live support from a Digital Event Coordinator.

Learn more about MOCS events here.


Standard Regional MCQ Sunday

On Sunday, March 10, there will be a Standard Regional Mythic Championship Qualifier (RMCQ) at 5 a.m. PT (12:00 UTC). Regional MCQs are invitation-only events. An invitation to participate in a Regional MCQ for Mythic Championship London 2019 is offered to the following:

  • Players with a Mythic Championship Players Club Bronze or Silver level for the Ravnica Allegiance Cycle
  • Players that won a Preliminary Mythic Championship Qualifier from October 6, 2018 until January 6, 2019.
  • Players that received an invitation to this round of Regional Mythic Championship Qualifiers for their top finish at a Regional Mythic Championship Qualifier for Mythic Championship Cleveland 2019.
  • Players that won a Regional Last Chance Qualifier that ties to that Regional Mythic Championship Qualifier.

Pre-registration for the event is required and only open to players who have not competed in a paper-world Regional MCQ event since February 2. The event is limited to 212 players, and registration closes tomorrow at 11:59 p.m. PT.

IMPORTANT: Players in North America & Caribbean—remember to set your clocks forward on Saturday night. Players outside North America—start times will automatically change in the game after 10:00 UTC Sunday. Late entries cannot be accommodated.

Learn more about Regional Mythic Qualifier events here.
