Format: Booster Draft
Players each receive 2 booster packs of the newest set, Rivals of Ixalan, and 1 booster pack of Ixalan. Players open one booster pack and choose one card, then pass the remaining cards to the player on their left. They will continue until all cards have been chosen from the first booster pack. Repeat this process for the next two boosters, switching the direction in which the boosters are passed around the table for each pack.

Players will be placed into 6-8 person pods for drafting, followed by three Swiss-style rounds of play.
