Magic Zendikar Rising Pre-release (September 18-20, 2020)

At your first pre-release event where you stay to play, you will also receive a Spandex City "Very Important Player" seat cushion for FREE! (limit 1 per player for the weekend).

Due to health considerations and social distancing requirements, all in-store play is limited to 8 players per event! Masks are required while you are in the store.

If you are not planning to actually play in the events, please choose the option "Take Home Pre-release".

When you register for the Prerelease, you can "Add-a-Box" of Zendikar Rising Draft Boosters to your order for just $109.99. This special price is only available at the time of initial purchase, and you will receive your sealed box and exclusive "Buy-a-Box" promo card during the pre-release (i.e. you do not need to wait until release day); Quantities may be limited!

You'll build a 40-card minimum deck using the contents of a 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 Zendikar Rising 15-card booster packs
  • 1 Zendikar Rising 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!
