Magic Online Announcements, March 12, 2019
What Is the Magic Online Weekly Announcements Blog?
Every Tuesday, we round up all the biggest Magic Online news for the Weekly Announcements Blog.
Check in weekly for the latest updates!
Available tomorrow, 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.
It's time for VSL Playoffs—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!
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.
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).
On Saturday, March 16, there will be a Magic Online Championship Series Preliminary event for 2019 MOCS! The format will be Phantom Sealed, the set will be Ravnica Allegiance, and things will kick off at 7 a.m. PT. MOCS Preliminaries are eight rounds of Swiss and require 35 Qualifier Points to enter. Winners will receive (among other prizes) invitations to a MOCS Playoff event.
