How to Become the next Magic Champion: Qualifying for Mythic Championships and Worlds
February 20 2019
The first two Mythic Point Challenges will take place on:
Mythic Point Challenge
Qualification Method from Ranked Play
Be Top 1200 in Limited or Constructed in October, November, December 2019, or January 2020 Ranked Seasons
April 4, 2020: Mythic Point Challenge –Core 2021
Be Top 1200 in Limited or Constructed in March 2020 Ranked Seasons
All Mythic Qualifiers above are Standard Constructed format best-of-three.
Players qualify based on being in the Top 1200 in Mythic Ranking at the conclusion of the prior month's ranked season. Mythic Point Challenges will mirror the structure of Mythic Qualifiers, except players compete until they achieve 10 wins or 3 losses. 200 gems will be awarded to each player for each match win they earn in the event by the time their event ends.
Just like a Mythic Qualifier, Mythic Point Challenges will provide Mythic Points to players based on their match wins, with points being awarded starting at their fifth win.
These are new events and their specifics may change—such as how many players are qualified to compete, or how many wins or losses a player needs before their event ends. We'll be keeping a close eye on how this fits into our competitive system and make any changes we need to.
Play your way into the 2019 season of Mythic Championships by participating in Mythic Championship Qualifier tournaments for both tabletop and digital Magic. Challengers can qualify for Mythic Championships through Mythic Championship Qualifier tournaments run by a local WPN game store, by a tournament organizer, at a MagicFest, on Magic Online, or on MTG Arena.
Here are a few ways Challengers can qualify for Mythic Championships:
Players who finish in the Top 8 with at least 39 match points at individual Grand Prix will earn an invite. The Top 4 teams and all other teams with at least 36 match points at team Grand Prix will earn an invite.
This year will feature 150 qualifier tournaments run around the world by WPN game stores and tournament organizers.
The winner of the Magic Online Mythic Qualifier Finals, the runner-up for each MOCS Playoff, and players who qualify for the 2019 Magic Online Championship, will earn an invite.
Reach top 1,000 in Mythic Ranking in Constructed or Limited during a qualifying month to compete in that season's Mythic Qualifier Weekend.
The top 16 Challengers from an MTG Arena Mythic Qualifier Weekend will move on to the corresponding Mythic Championship.
