CHAOS DRAFT! October 16

Flex your deck-building skills during this week's CHAOS DRAFT!, a format that requires players to contemplate meta-archetypes over the curated archetypes typically found in a cube. CHAOS DRAFT! starts tomorrow, October 16, and runs for a week—plenty of time to smash face amidst the Pandemonium.

Sets that can be opened in this CHAOS DRAFT! include:

Return to Ravnica, Gatecrash, Dragon's Maze, Magic 2014 Core Set, Theros, Born of the Gods, Journey into Nyx, Magic 2015 Core Set, Khans of Tarkir, Fate Reforged, Dragons of Tarkir, Magic Origins, Battle for Zendikar, Oath of the Gatewatch, Shadows over Innistrad, Eldritch Moon, Kaladesh, Aether Revolt, Amonkhet, Hour of Devastation, Ixalan, Rivals of Ixalan, Dominaria, Core Set 2019, Guilds of Ravnica, Ravnica Allegiance, War of the Spark, Core Set 2020, and Throne of Eldraine


Innistrad Flashback Draft October 30

To celebrate Halloween, players can enjoy frightful fights in the upcoming Innistrad Flashback Draft! Get in on all the spooky action starting Wednesday, October 30. Innistrad Flashback Draft runs through November 6, so you'll have plenty of time to enjoy the creepiest of creatures.


Banned & Restricted List Update Window

Next Monday, October 21, R&D will make an announcement regarding the banned and restricted lists for each format. If there is a change to any format, Magic Online will implement that change at 12 p.m. PT on the same day as the announcement.

If a card is banned or restricted, players using the newly banned card in a league can finish their league courses in the intervening four hours. At noon, however, any remaining players with newly illegal decks will be removed from the league with their entry option returned to their collection. If a card is unbanned or unrestricted, players can join existing leagues with decks containing those cards after the update.


Throne of Eldraine: Magic Online Edition

Join Knights and Nobles to forge your path toward victory with Throne of Eldraine on Magic Online! Constructed and Limited events are well underway, and you should also mark down the following dates for redemption:

  • Redemption begins October 23.
  • The Throne of Eldraine redemption guarantee period ends February 5, 2020.
  • Throne of Eldraine redemption will end on March 11, 2020.

Vintage & Pauper Bonus Format Playoffs

For those of you who missed the previous format playoffs, we're holding bonus playoffs this month! To join, accrue 35 Format Points in Challenges and Leagues within a single format by its Playoff date—Vintage on Saturday, October 19, and Pauper on Sunday, October 20, both at 10 a.m.

The Magic Online Format Challenges continue every weekend for Modern, Vintage, Legacy, and Pauper formats except when replaced by Format Playoffs during scheduled Format Playoff dates.

Format Playoff events qualify you for the Format Championship in January that sends the top player to the Magic Online Championships and the tabletop Players Tour. For a list of users who have qualified thus far, click here.


WAR Redemption Ends Soon

Redemptions for War of the Spark end next week on Monday, October 21. For more information on redemption, please see our Redemption Policy page.


Legacy Premier League

Legacy Premier League, Legacy's popular community league, makes its return on twitch.tv/itsJulian. Don't miss Group C's show on Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET (3 p.m. PT).
