Wizards of the Coast has challenged us to run 15 Standard tournaments in 9 weeks, and get a bunch of spiffy rewards for our players!
When is the challenge?
February 13 – April 16, 2017
What do we have to do?
Run 15 Standard tournaments.
How are we going to accomplish this?
We normally run Standard on Tuesdays (at 7pm), so that takes care of 9 standard tournaments. We have to fit in 6 additional standard tournaments. We’ll be running some of them on the following dates:
- Monday February 20, 1pm (Louis Riel Day)
- Sunday March 5, 2 pm
- Sunday March 12 2 pm
- Saturday April 15, 2pm (Part of the Magic Open House!)
Additionally we are going to be offering “On Demand Standard Events“.
Any time we have 4 folks in store and they want to have a standard round robin tournament, we’ll fire it up. $6 per person, 1.5 packs per player into the prize pool. Each participant will get a booster at the conclusion of the round robin from the prize pool, the remaining packs go to the winner.
But how do players get the spiffy alt-art battle lands?
Players participating in Standard events between February 13 and April 16th will receive “Aether Revolt Standard Series” punch cards. After participating in 6 Standard Events, players can turn in their punch card to claim one of the 30 Alt art Battle Lands. Players may redeem more than one completed punch card, while supplies last.
*Alt Art lands will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis, until supplies are exhausted. The sooner you complete and hand in your card for 6 events the sooner you secure your Alt Art Battle Land [Example: John players in Events of 2/14, 2/20, 2/21, 2/28, 3/5, & 3/7 – he turns in his card and requests a Sunken Hollow on 3/7, when the Alt art cards come in, we would contact John and let him know his Sunken Hollow is ready for pick up!]
Any players who participate in 15 Standard events will be entered into a draw to win a special Amonket Playmat!
**Playmats and Alt-Art Battle Lands will be available to be picked up sometime in Mid April. Players will be contacted when they are available.
