UPDATED!!! MTG Commander 2016 Edition Tournaments – Saturday, November 19th at All Stores!

commander2015logo

Alternate Universes is holding Commander (2016 Edition) tournaments SATURDAY, November 19th, at all stores!  (Due to overwhelming demand for the 2016 Commander Decks we have been forced to change the date for these tournament to next Saturday to allow us to have sufficient product on hand.)

Commander is an exciting, unique way to play Magic that is all about awesome legendary creatures, big plays, and battling your friends in epic multiplayer games! In Commander, each player chooses a legendary creature as the commander of their deck. They then play with a 99-card deck that contains only cards of their commander’s colors. Also, other than basic lands, each deck can only use one copy of any card. During the game, you can cast your commander multiple times, meaning your favorite Legendary Creature can come back again and again to lead the charge as you battle for victory!

Entry fee: $35 (price of one Commander deck)
Each participant will receive a Commander (2016 Edition) deck of their choice (while supplies last).  Players will be placed in 4-5 person pods for play.  Players will receive 1 Booster Pack for each player they eliminate from their pod, and 2 Booster Packs if they win the pod.
