MTG Conspiracy: Take the Crown Release Drafts – Friday, August 26th and Saturday, August 27th

en_CEMpz1LSO4

Alternate Universes will be holding MTG Conspiracy: Take the Crown Release Draft events at all three AU locations on Friday, August 26th (alongside FNM) and Saturday, August 27th!

Clearly the crown is up for grabs. Will you claim it?

No more jokes. No more intrigue. For real this time.

The throne no longer sits empty, but deception, danger, and even death await around every corner.

Add deeper layers of intrigue to your next Magic draft and begin plotting as soon as you open your first booster pack! The Conspiracy: Take the Crown set builds on the revolutionary abilities introduced in the original Magic: The Gathering—Conspiracy set, with new cards that affect the draft itself and new conspiracies that twist the rules against your foes. Trade votes and spread your attacks to manipulate the game in your favor. Seize the crown to give yourself a greater edge—if you can keep it.

How will you plot your way to the throne?

This set is designed for eight-player drafts, followed by free-for-all games of three to five players each.

Friday, August 26th
Holmes, Blue Bell, & Wilmington: Drafts start at 7PM (start of Friday Night Magic)
Our usual FNM tournaments will also run as scheduled.  Check out alternateu.com/calendar for more info on our weekly events!

Saturday, August 27th
Holmes: Drafts start at 6PM
Blue Bell: Drafts start at 6 PM
Wilmington: Drafts start at 5 PM

Entry Fee: $15

Booster Pack or Store Credit prizes (your choice!) will be awarded based on attendance!

Introducing “Become the Monarch”
Many cards in this set cause you to become the monarch of the game.  Being the monarch grants you these triggered abilities:

• At the beginning of your end step, draw a card.

• Whenever a creature deals combat damage to you, that creature’s controller becomes the monarch.

No player is the monarch as the game starts, and there’s never more than one monarch in the game at a time.  You can claim the title by dealing combat damage to the monarch player, or with any spell or ability that says “you become the monarch.”  Some booster packs contain a card called The Monarch instead of a token.  That card is one way to indicate which player is the monarch of your game.
