Team Vintage Super League x2

Fans of Team Vintage Super League, rejoice! You get twice as much this week, all for the low price of zero dollars! TVSL will go live at its regular time of 6 p.m. PT on Thursday at twitch.tv/magic, but before that, it will also air tonight, Tuesday, at 6 p.m. 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.

Lorwyn Flashbacks Coming Soon

Faeries and Kithkin and Elementals, oh my! Sorry. We're just so excited to be visiting one of Magic's most distinctive and flavorful worlds again. Mark your calendars: Lorwyn Flashback Drafts will be available on Magic Online May 16–23, and will appear in the Limited Leagues section of the Play Lobby.

Two PTQs This Weekend

It's a double Pro Tour Qualifier Finals weekend on Magic Online. On Saturday, May 12, the format will be Standard, and the event will begin at 9 a.m. PT. Players can enter with 30 Event Tickets or 300 Play Points. Sunday, May 13, the format will be Dominaria Sealed Deck, and things will kick off at 7 a.m. PT. A red or blue PTQ Finals Entry Token is required to join this event. The winner of each tournament will qualify for Pro Tour "Spaghetti."
