As promised in the Friday update, here are some more details about the upcoming Magic: The Gathering league! MtG is the long running, popular TCG published by Wizards of the coast, the newest set, Amonkhet, explores an Egyptian themed world, ruled by mighty gods! It has seen a recent increase in popularity at our club, so we are excited to help support it and introduce new players. The league gives players an even playing field, is great value for money, and will be a great chance to hone your deck building skills!
When will it be?
We are running the league for the month of June. You will be able to come in and play on both the Monday and Wednesday at the club and also on Friday upstairs in Starbucks from 5pm-10pm (store lock in from 7pm, so make sure to make it in before then) each week. 5th – 30th June.
How much will it be?
The cost will be £14 to enter and will get you 6 booster packs of Amonkhet:- 3 on the 5th, 7th or 9th, then 1 more each week for the following 3 weeks.
This can be paid ahead of time fully, or £7.50 to cover the first 3 packs, then £2.50 each following week as each extra pack is received.
How will it work?
You will make a 30 card minimum deck out of your packs and use them to play other people in a swiss style tournament structure, each week using the cards from a new pack to alter your deck. At the end of the 4 weeks we will wrap up out who did the best and allocate prizes for who did the best, good sportsmanship / manners, good improvements, who made exciting / fun / drastic plays.
Should be a lot of fun! hope to see you all at the table casting spells!
