Between the Sealed Draft and Standard Constructed portion of today, players were treated to a tour of the fourth floor of Wizards of the Coast after lunch. This is rarely something offered here at the headquarters, around two or three times each year for select groups of players for special events.
The 2015 Super Sunday Championship is one such occasion. While I can't give you the complete look inside Wizards of the Coast—something about secrets and ninjas and assassinated in my sleep and whatnot—I am able to give you a glimpse at portions of the tour. Enjoy!
Grand Prix tournament organizer manager Ron Foster gives the players a rundown on what to expect on their tour.
If you take a look behind you once getting off the elevator, you'll notice a familiar face or two. [Not pictured: Jace, on the third elevator]
It's hard to miss the check-in desk with the glowing Wizards logo resting above it.
Statues featuring various points in Magic's history are found throughout the building. For example, say hello to Dakkon Blackblade!
The walls also feature art and prints from the game's storied past...
...like Kokusho, the Evening Star!
Jester's Cap, anyone?
As you reach the end of the loop at the top of the Wizards of the Coast building, the murals shift to the modern Magic look. Nicol Bolas looms near one of the largest meeting rooms on this floor.
But in the lobby features my favorite mural of the building: an incredible depiction that includes the realm of Nicol Bolas, Jace, and much much more.
And of course there's Mitzy, the lobby dragon. Say hello to your Super Series Sunday Championship competitors!
