    Alara Reborn All Weekend Long!

    April 29, 2009

    The new Magic set, Alara Reborn, releases on Thursday, April 30th. And to celebrate, we’re hosting a bunch of great events this coming weekend. On Friday night, we’re running an Alara Reborn Release Tournament in Sealed Deck format, and on Saturday, we’re devoting the day to the Alara Reborn Launch Party. Details on both events are below.

    Alara Reborn Release TournamentFri, May 1st @ 6pm

    If you’re interested in attending the tournament, you must arrive before 6:30 pm to sign in and purchase your cards package. This entry package will cost $30.00 and will consist of one Shards of Alara tournament deck, one Conflux booster, and two Alara Reborn boosters.

    There will be multiple 8-person pods which will each last 3 rounds, with the goal of each mini-tournament to be done by 10pm. Prizes will be given in the form of promo cards, playmats, and some other nifty prize support that we have in the store.

    We ask that you please sign up for this event in advance, either by e-mail, phone, or drop-in so we can get a rough number of players joining us for the tournament. We regret that we will not be admitting players after 6:30pm SHARP. Please arrive as early as you can.

    Alara Reborn Launch PartySat, April 2nd @ 12pm

    Join us for our Alara Reborn Launch Party on Saturday! All day in the store, 12 noon to 6pm, we’ll be running booster drafts and casual play. No matter what your play-style is, you’ll find some options for a good day spent with the new set.

    Launch Party Booster Draft
    We’ll be organizing a Booster Draft tournament when people arrive, preferably organized into 8-person pods. Entry will be $15, with booster packs given out based on ranking order and extra foil promo cards and limited-edition playmats added in for prizes!

    Launch Party Open Dueling
    Magic players also have the option to sign up for Open Dueling. Open Dueling is an informal and flexible format ideal for new or returning Magic players. Entry fee payment ($15) will entitle you to (1) one Intro Pack, (1) one Open Dueling Results Card, and (1) one special Knight of New Alara foil promo card (while supplies last). After you complete five matches the organizer will reward you with one complementary Magic booster pack.
