Lorwyn is for Lovers

A special Valentine's Day Event, Lorwyn is for Lovers, is coming to Magic Online beginning on Friday, February 13, 10:00 a.m. Pacific (UTC-8)! Until Monday, February 16, 10:00 a.m., Magic Online players will get the chance to play Sealed in the summery splendor of Lorwyn. Please note that Lorwyn is for Lovers is a Phantom Event, so product will not be added to a player's collection at its conclusion.

New Episode of Vintage Super League Tonight

The Vintage Super League pits Magic celebrities against one another with Magic's oldest and most powerful cards as their weapons of choice. The members of the Vintage Super League are back from their break and ready for episode two! Check it out tonight at 6:00 p.m. Pacific (UTC-8) on twitch.tv/magic!

For a review of the current state of the league, as well as look at what's coming up in tonight's episode, take a look at Randy Buehler's latest article. You can also see the league's decklists here.


Fate Reforged Release Events

The Prerelease may have passed us by, but Fate Reforged Release Events are still going strong. Release Events run until the downtime on Wednesday, February 18. Release Queue events run on demand and will be available for the duration of the Release. Make sure to keep your eye out for the two scheduled Release events, the 64-Player with Top 8 Draft and the Swiss Sealed with Top 8 Events. Participating in any Release Event will earn you either a Yasova Dragonclaw avatar, or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon avatar for your collection!

Pro Tour Qualifiers for Pro Tour Magic Origins

Qualify for the Pro Tour from the comfort of your computer on Magic Online! We've posted a new Pro Tour Qualifiers (PTQ) page that details a list of Preliminary Pro Tour Qualifiers that can win you an invitation to the upcoming Pro Tour for Magic Origins.

The new PTQ page also features details regarding our updated Pro Tour Challenge Events. The Magic Online Pro Tour Challenge is an additional tournament held during the Pro Tour especially for Magic Online players invited via a Pro Tour Qualifier on Magic Online or the Magic Online Championship Series. This in-person event is held in the same location as the Pro Tour and pits Magic Online Pro Tour invitees against one another in a single, 4-round Swiss event, with fabulous prizes up for grabs! Once a player qualifies for the Pro Tour through a Magic Online Championship Series Season Final, or a Magic Online PTQ, s/he is no longer eligible to participate in either face-to-face or Magic Online PTQ Events that lead to the same Pro Tour.

Head over to the PTQ page to see the full schedule of Qualifier Events that lead to Pro Tour Magic Origins.
