Magic Ikoria Lair of Behemoths Pre-release (May 15-17, 2020)

COVID-19 provisions: Wizards of the Coast has cancelled sanctioning of all events until at least June 1st. We will operate pre-release weekend with a reduced schedule (4 events instead of 6). Events are unsanctioned! No Planeswalker Points are earned, and your wins/losses will not be reported to Wizards of the Coast. We will still prize out as usual, and if we cancelled an event that you had pre-registered for, we will provide you an extra booster pack along with your pre-release kit.

Participation is strictly limited to 8 players in-store per event, with no spectators allowed. Please read over our full COVID-19 response and safety measures, available here.

At the pre-release, you'll build a 40-card minimum deck using the contents of a themed Prerelease pack. This play format is called "Sealed Deck." After you build your deck, you'll be randomly paired with another player for a best-two-of-three match. Each round, you'll report who won and be paired up with a new player. If you do well, you may get additional booster packs as prizes!

What will you find in your pre-release pack?

  • 1 randomized, date-stamped foil rare or mythic promotional card
  • 6 Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths 15-card booster packs
  • 1 Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths spindown life counter

Each player will then make a 40-card minimum deck (25-minutes for deck-building) from the 6 booster packs in the pre-release kit!  Bring your own lands if you have them. If you don't have lands, you can borrow store lands.

The tournament format is Swiss Draw (i.e. every players plays in all 3 rounds and is paired against a player with the same win-loss record). After three 50-minute rounds of play (3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw), we will distribute booster pack prizes as follows:

  • 9 points - 7 boosters
  • 7 points - 5 boosters
  • 6 points - 3 boosters
  • 4-5 points - 1 booster

(Please note that prize boosters cannot be distributed before the end of the event, and we cannot hold prize packs for players, except for our comic subscribers).

Registration is limited based on space and product availability!
