Vintage Cube October 2021 Update

The spooky season may be over, but the updated Vintage Cube is still going strong. This time, we're looking at expanding the parts of the sandbox that include build-arounds and reactive cards. Read about the changes in Emma Handy's article, check out the change list below, and see the full card list on the updated Vintage Cube page.


Showcase Challenge Weekend

Players looking to prove their mettle against the best players in Magic Online will want to use their QPs to enter Magic Online Champions Showcase (MOCS) events such as the returning Showcase Challenges this weekend. These MOCS events are a set of linked events designed to highlight the best players on Magic Online each season, culminating in the Champions Showcase and its prize pool of $70,000 and a Set Championship invitation.

On Saturday, November 13, we have the Modern Showcase Challenge at 8 a.m. PT (16:00 UTC), and on Sunday, November 14, we finish things off with the Pioneer Showcase Challenge at 6 a.m. PT (14:00). Each of these events requires 40 QPs to enter. The Top 8 finishers from each event will earn a qualification token to enter the appropriate Showcase Qualifier in December.

Magic Online Format Challenges Every Weekend
