MTG Amonkhet League – First Four Weeks of May

May 5th, 2017

Alternate Universes is hosting Magic: the Gathering Amonkhet Leagues during the first four weeks of May: Mondays at AU Holmes, Tuesdays at AU Blue Bell, and Wednesdays at AU Wilmington!

Here’s how it works:

Upon purchasing the initial 3 Amonkhet boosters for the league, players will receive an Amonkhet League Card and a League Storage Box.  Players each build a 30-card minimum deck from the booster packs they received at the start and use the same deck each week to play casually with other League players throughout the evening.  They may play any number of matches.  Matches should be just one game, and each player may take one free mulligan per match.  Lands will be provided in-store.

  • Week 1: Start with 3 Amonkhet boosters. Build a 30-card minimum deck, making sure to include 12–13 lands.
  • Weeks 2–4: You may purchase 1 additional booster from Amonkhet to modify your deck each week.
  • Bonus: If your deck receives a third loss on any League night, you may purchase and add cards from 1 additional Amonkhet booster (limit once per week).

Players may join the League on any week, and buy boosters to catch up to the current week.  If a player loses three matches in a night, they become eligible to purchase one more booster pack to modify their deck, limit one time per week.  If a player plays 10 or more matches throughout the League, they will receive the Amonkhet 4-sided participation die!
