MTG Guilds of Ravnica Prereleases – Saturday, September 29th and Sunday, September 30th

September 12th, 2018

Alternate Universes is hosting Magic: the Gathering Guilds of Ravnica prerelease tournaments on Saturday, September 29th and Sunday, September 30th at all AU stores!  For each participating player we are putting four booster packs in the prize pool!  And we will once again have free pizza at all midnight prereleases!

Format

The format for all prerelease tournaments is Sealed Deck, including the 2-Headed Giant Tournaments. Each player chooses one Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease Kit from one of the five guilds to use for building a 40-card deck. These special prerelease kits are themed after the five guilds of Ravnica—Boros, Selesnya, Izzet, Golgari, and Dimir—and include five Guilds of Ravnica booster packs, one seeded booster pack with only cards from your guild, plus a prerelease promo from your guild.

All tournaments will now be 3 rounds regardless of the number of players. Prizes will be awarded based on record after the final round (see below for prize structures).
