Do you have what it takes to represent your country against the rest of the world? Nationals pits your nation’s best against one another in one big tournament, with the finalists of the event earning an invitation to the World Magic Cup to represent their country battle for the ultimate national bragging rights.

The World Magic Cup is an annual Magic event, gathering representatives from nations all over the world to compete in a unique team format for the ultimate national bragging rights. Teams of three, representing more than 70 countries, face off every year over a multi-day, multi-format event to crown the World Magic Cup Champion.



Eligibility and residency requirements are found on the Premier Event Invitation Policy (Section 4).

If you’re good enough to be a Nationals finalist, get in touch with last season’s Pro Point leader from your country. You’ve got a lot of work ahead of you to take on the world!


The formats for Nationals is a mixture of Standard Constructed and Booster Draft.




Top 4 competitors at each respective Nationals tournament will receive Pro Points that count towards the premier play season that the event takes place within. The two finalists from each country’s Nationals will receive an invitation and airfare to compete on their country’s team in the next World Magic Cup. The winner of a country’s Nationals will be crowned the National Champion.

Top 8 competitors will also receive an exclusive playmat, and all participants will receive a limited-edition promotional card (while supplies last).

Tournament organizers may also provide additional prizes.
