Hello Magic fans!!
The new Magic set Shadows Over Innistrad comes out in a little over 2 weeks!!! To get everyone pumped up, we’ll be holding TWO pre-release events on Saturday, April 2nd and Sunday, April 3rd, starting at 12:00 pm!
The pre-release will be a sealed deck tournament. Ideal for new players and those who are unfamiliar with a set, a sealed deck tournament offers new and experienced players alike a fun way to get to know a new Magic set. In a sealed deck tournament you will be given six boosters to open and build a deck from. Your card pool is whatever you’ve opened in your six boosters plus basic land that we will provide, and you’ll take the cards you open home with you.
For the Shadows Over Innistrad prerelease, you have receive a Prerelease Pack to that contains the following:
6 Shadows Over Innistrad Booster packs
1 randomized, date-stamped premium promo card
1 insert with deckbuilding advice
1 Spindown™ life counter
For this event, players may use the promo card included with the Prerelease Pack in their tournament deck.
For $30, you get to play with some sweet Shadows Over Innistrad goodness a week before the set comes out! Additionally, two Shadows Over Innistrad boosters will be added to a prize pool for each player who attends, so if you play well, you could walk home with a great prize!
These pre-release events have a limited number of seats for each day and will fill up very quickly, so please let us know as soon as possible if you plan to attend and which day you prefer to play. We're happy to write your name down on our list, but to reserve your spot you MUST prepay. You can call in with your payment or stop by and pay in person.
