$10 FNM Booster Draft!
Well it’s just about time to say good-bye to Return To Ravnica in limited, so we are going to continue our tradition of ushering out a set with a $10 draft! This Friday’s draft will start at 7pm. First and second place along with two random players will also receive this month’s DCI promo card Searing Spear. So, don’t miss your last chance to draft this popular Magic set.
Also, don’t forget that next Friday, January 18th will be the premier of Modern as a FNM format. Time to dig out your older cards and compete in this increasingly popular format. Please check the Magic web site at www.magicthegathering.com for sets that are legal in Modern along with its banned list.
And finally, Standard makes it’s last FNM appearance on 1/25/13 before Gatecrash becomes legal. Hope to see you at these great events!

Magic’s next set Gatecrash continues the Ravnica storyline, by taking players inside the remaining five guilds: Orzhov, Gruul, Simic, Dimir, and Boros. Where will your loyalties stand and who will you ride with for control of the City Plane of Ravnica? These will be answered during our Gatecrash Prerelease events being held on Saturday, January 26th. We are running three sealed events for Gatecrash.
The first starting at 9am, is a special “by invitation only” tournament for our most loyal Magic players. Please contact one of our staff members if you would like to be included in this event.
The next tournament starts at 1pm and is open to all players. The 9am and 1pm events format is single player sealed deck and the cost is $30.
The days final event is Two-Headed Giant sealed deck and will start at approximately 5pm. The cost is $50 for each two player team.
All the events will use the same type of Guild Packs that were first introduced at the Return to Ravnica prereleases. Each Guild Pack will contain five Gatecrash booster packs and one guild booster. The guild booster will also contain a special DCI promo card specific to your guild. Players will once again be allowed to use this promo card in their decks if they wish.
As the product for these events was once again highly allocated due to the expected popularity, we are STRONGLY encouraging all players to preregister for the event to have a chance at the guild of their choice. We are only receiving 19 of each Guild Pack. Please stop by the store to preregister and choose your guilds. Payment is needed at the time of sign-up.
We are also taking pre-orders for Gatecrash booster boxes. Pre-order cost is $110 + tax. This price is cash or credit card only. Unfortunately we cannot accept store credit for booster box pre-orders. The release date is Friday, February 1st.
