MTG Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate PRERELEASES – June 3rd–5th

MTG Commander Legends: Baldur's Gate Prerelease Drafts at AU

MTG Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate Prerelease Drafts
June 3rd, 4th, and 5th at all three AU locations!

Format: Commander Draft

Each player gets one Baldur’s Gate Prerelease Pack to draft with in their pod. Each one contains:

  • 3 Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate Draft Boosters
  • 1 Traditional foil rare or mythic rare from Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate with a foil year stamp
  • 1 d20
  • 1 Reusable deck box with divider
  • 1 MTG Arena code card

When you’re drafting Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate, you’ll take two cards at a time and build a Commander deck containing a minimum of 60 cards. You can add Faceless One to use as your Commander if you can’t find a Commander that fits the color you drafted. And, because you’re drafting your deck, you don’t have to obey the Singleton rule (you can have multiple copies of any card). Lands will be provided for free at the event!

For each Prerelease, players will be organized into pods to draft, and then play one game of Commander with their pod.

PRIZES
For each player you eliminate in your pod, you earn 1 Baldur’s Gate Set Booster; if you win the pod, you get 3 Baldur’s Gate Set Boosters; everyone gets 2 Baldur’s Gate Set Boosters just for playing, on top of their other winnings.

Example: You eliminate 2 players and also win the pod, so you get 7 Set Boosters. Another player eliminates 1 player, so they get 3 Set Boosters. The other 2 players get 2 Set Boosters each.

Once a Prerelease is over, we are having Baldur’s Gate free play until we start the next draft.

Entry Fee: $30 per draft
