Vintage Cube March 3–24

We've got a three-week run of this classic experience from March 3 until March 24. March is a little unusual for this cube, but . . . well, we live in unusual times and the MOCS Showcase events on March 13 and 14 are worth celebrating. Life's too short not to have a little more Vintage Cube.

For a full list of the latest changes to Vintage Cube, click here.


Limited Super Qualifier Saturday

On Saturday, March 13, there will be a Kaldheim Sealed Super Qualifier with a start time of 7 a.m. PT (UTC-8). The entry fee is 40 MOCS Qualifier Points, 40 Event Tickets, or 400 Play Points. The top two finishers qualify for the Strixhaven Championship on MTG Arena.

Learn more about Super Qualifier events here.


Modern Qualifier Sunday

On Sunday, March 14, there will be a Modern Qualifier with a start time of 7 a.m. PT (UTC-7). The event costs 40 QPs, and the winner will earn an invitation to the Strixhaven Split Championship event on MTG Arena.

Learn more about Qualifier events here.


Kaldheim Season Alternative Play Calendar

For Kaldheim season's alternative play, we have quite the variety for you. Please note that events change over from one week to the next on Wednesday mornings and last for one week unless specified otherwise.

  • March 24: Time Spiral Remastered Supreme Draft. Time Spiral Remastered comes out on March 19. Before everyone has mastered this remaster, let's draft some truly absurd decks.
  • March 31: A new Spotlight Cube. As usual, we'll have more to share when we get closer.
  • April 7: Another new Spotlight Cube. Again, details will come as the event approaches.

Magic Online Format Challenges Every Weekend

Format Challenges are the first step toward qualifying for Premier Play through your favorite Magic formats and provide excellent prizes for those looking to test their mettle in their favorite formats. To learn more about Premier Play qualification, click here.

NOTE: The Pauper Challenge is never pre-empted.
