Pauper Banned List Update

As announced in yesterday's article, four cards have been added to the Banned List in Pauper:

These changes took effect in Magic Online yesterday, and all players with those cards in their deck at the time of the banning have had that League course ended with the entry option returned.


MirrodinDarksteel Flashback Draft September 21–27

The way-back machine visits proto-New Phyrexia with MirrodinDarksteel Flashback Drafts on Magic Online from September 21 through 27. Entry options are 10 Event Tickets or 100 Play Points.

Reminder: Flashback decks are Phantom, so cards drafted are not added to collections.


Time Spiral Remastered Flashback Draft Ends Tomorrow

Take a trip down Dominaria's memory lane with Time Spiral Remastered Flashback Draft before it ends tomorrow morning. Entry options are 10 Event Tickets or 100 Play Points.

Reminder: Flashback decks are Phantom, so cards drafted are not added to collections.


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 invitations to the 2023 World Championship!

This week on Saturday, September 24, we have the Standard Showcase Challenge at 6 a.m. PT (13:00 UTC), and on Sunday, September 25, we have the Legacy Showcase Challenge at 8 a.m. PT (15:00 UTC).

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.
