Each national team invited to the 2017 World Magic Cup will consist of the following players:

  • The top ranked player at the conclusion of the 2016-2017 Professional Points Season from that country that is not already invited based on the above criteria. If two or more players are tied, ties will be broken as follows:
    • The tied player with the greatest number of Pro Tour Top 8* finishes during the 2016-17 Professional Points Season, or
    • The tied player with the greatest number of Grand Prix Top 8 finishes during the 2016-17 Professional Points Season, or
    • The tied player with the greatest number of match points from his or her best Pro Tour* finish during the 2016-17 Professional Points Season, or
    • The tied player with the greatest number of match points in his or her best individual-format Grand Prix finish during the 2016-17 Professional Points Season, or
    • The tied player with the highest point total at the conclusion of the 2016 Seasonal Yearly Award Season.
  • The finalists* of the 2017 Nationals run in that country.

*In the event a finalist in the 2017 Nationals run in a country is also the team captain for that country, the invitation will pass down to the person who placed third at that country’s Nationals.

Note: The Magic: The Gathering World Championship and the World Magic Cup are not Pro Tour events.

All invitations are subject to the requirements limitations set forth in the Magic Premier Event Invitation Policy.
