Pro Tour Team Series
The Pro Tour Team Series celebrates and rewards players for doing well at Pro Tours over the course of a season as part of an approved team! Players form teams of 6 and compete throughout a premier play season on the Pro Tour.
Ultimate Guard Pro Team Wins!
Ultimate Guard Pro Team—comprised of Owen Turtenwald, Paul Rietzl, William Jensen, Reid Duke, Jon Finkel, and Andrew Cuneo—are your 2017-18 Pro Tour Team Series champions!
How Team Series Scoring Works
Teams are given scores based on Pro Points earned by team members at Pro Tours. The Pro Points earned by the top five of the six team members on each team will be added to a team’s score at the end of each Pro Tour, with the exception of Pro Tour 25th Anniversary, where the Pro Points earned from all six team members will be added to a team's score.
The Top 2 teams at the end of the season are invited to compete in a special team finals event at the Magic: The Gathering World Championship to see who will be crowned Team Series champions!
Top 4 teams at the conclusion of the 2017-18 Team Series Championship will win their share of a prize purse of over $200,000! The total prize money for each team in the Team Series Championship at the Magic: The Gathering World Championship will be divided evenly to each team member who competes in the Pro Tour Team Series Finals for the Top 2 teams, and the players who were on the rosters of the 3rd and 4th place teams as of the end of Pro Tour 25th Anniversary.
