By now you have likely seen the Aether Revolt Card Image Gallery (or are patiently waiting until this weekend's Prereleases to see the cards in person for the first time!). You'll have plenty of opportunities in the coming months to try out Aether Revolt, especially if a Grand Prix is headed to a city near you!

With the full set for Aether Revolt now unveiled, it's time to compile all the awesome playmats that will be available at upcoming Grand Prix through March!


There are two Grand Prix remaining in January—Prague and San Jose—each showcasing one art for their playmats. Those playmats feature the art from Mechanized Production.

The initial tickets into the main event of Grand Prix Prague sold out, but the tournament organizer recently announced that 300 seats opened up thanks to space within their venue becoming free, so check out the GP website for more info on signing up! Players who compete in the main event will receive the above playmat.

All players who register for the Grand Prix San Jose main event will receive the above playmat, so check out the GP San Jose website for information on how to sign up!


The month of February features three weekends of Grand Prix following the results of Pro Tour Aether Revolt, highlighting both the Standard and Modern formats. The action starts with Grand Prix Pittsburgh, a Standard event that will take place only one week following what emerges at the Pro Tour.

The playmat for this event is available to players through different main event registration packages. For more information, visit the GP Pittsburgh website. That said, if you're a fan of legendary skyship Pirates, then the playmat art of Kari Zev's Expertise is likely to pique your interest for this one!

One week after that is a double-Grand Prix Modern weekend, featuring main events in Brisbane and Vancouver. All players who register for these main events will receive an event-exclusive playmat showcasing the beautiful art for Pithing Needle from the Kaladesh Inventions.

For more info on GP Brisbane registration, check out their website. Likewise, head over here for GP Vancouver registration info.

Finally, the month of February concludes with a Standard main event at Grand Prix Utrecht. The playmat for this event is available for all players who sign up to participate in the main event, and features the powerful artwork of Chandra's Revolution and Pia's Revolution together in one complete piece. Check it out!

For more info on signing up for GP Utrecht, visit their website.


The Aether Revolt playmats continue into March, starting off with Standard main events at Grand Prix Barcelona and Grand Prix New Jersey. The playmat for these two events features the artwork from Glint-Sleeve Siphoner.

Next up for the month is Standard action in both Asia as well as Latin America, with Grand Prix Shizuoka and Grand Prix Porto Alegre. The playmat for these events features the art from Tezzeret's Touch.

And finally, March winds down with a Limited Grand Prix in Orlando, Florida. The event-exclusive playmat for this Grand Prix features the art from Scrapper Champion.

Find a Grand Prix next you this quarter and get in on some Constructed or Limited action with Aether Revolt, and get your first taste of the new set by attending a Prerelease near you this weekend!
