MTG Return to Ravnica Pre-Release
Registration will begin at noon on September 30th. We'll begin the first event at 12:30 with 30 minutes to construct your decks, and the pre-release will run 3 rounds from 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM (at the latest). Please note that if you are pre-registered, you must arrive by 12:15 to claim your spot or it will be opened up for walk-ins.
The second tournament will begin registration at 3:30, and the tournament will start as close to 4 PM as we can manage, with 30 minutes to construct your decks. Please note for those pre-registered, you must arrive by 3:45 to claim your spot or it will be opened up for walk-ins.
We will allow walk-ins for both tournaments if the space is not filled, but we encourage pre-registration, as we generally fill up fairly quickly. In addition, because there are two events, and because the second event may run later than our usual closing time, we won't be able to offer trading or casual place space after the tournaments end.
We will be playing a Sealed Deck format. Players will choose one of five guilds to champion (Rakdos, Golgari, Azorius, Izzet, Selesnya) and receive a Guild Prerelease Pack to build their Prerelease deck. Each pre-release pack costs $24.99 (plus tax), which is the entry free for the tournament, and contains 5 Return to Ravnica boosters, 1 Guild booster with 14 Guild-aligned cards, 1 Guild promo card which players CAN play at event, a Spindown life counter, a Guild symbol sticker and an achievement card.
In addition to the main Prerelease Tournament events, if space allows, we will offer Open Dueling, allowing any player who wants to play to purchase 1 Return to Ravnica Intro Pack to play against each other, as well as Prerelease tournament players who are between matches.
