Modern Horizons Pre-Release - Draft
What Happens Here?
A week before the new set is released, you can head to our shop to crack open some pre-release packs, build a deck, and try out all the exciting new cards and mechanics in a friendly, informal tournament.
What is the Format?
The format for this event is Booster Draft. Unlike constructed formats, where you arrive with a carefully constructed deck ready to play, limited formats such as a Booster Draft allow you to build a deck from new cards as part of the game.
At the start of booster draft, each player opens a booster pack and picks a single card. Then everyone passes the rest of their pack to a player who picks a card before passing again. This process continues until all the cards in those packs have been drafted
Are There Prizes?
Yes. Prize packs will be awarded based on attendance.
What do I Bring?
If not submitted during online registration, you will need your DCI number. If you do not have a DCI number, our Wizards can assist you in obtaining one. A score pad to keep track of life totals is also necessary. Sleeves, deck boxes and counters are optional. Everything else needed to play, will be provided by our Wizards at the start of the event.
What is a DCI Number?
DCI numbers are used to track performance, attendance and grant special perks to players participating in events officially sanctioned by Wizards of the Coast. Our Wizards can assist you in obtaining one or help you in locating a lost or forgotten one.
What is the Tournament Structure?
Four 45 minute rounds of Swiss play, with an additional 45 minutes time allotment for deck construction.

What is Magic: the Gathering?
In the Magic game, you play the role of a planeswalker, a powerful wizard who fights other planeswalkers for glory, knowledge, and conquest. Your deck of cards represents all the weapons in your arsenal. It contains the spells you know and the creatures you can summon to fight for you.
Trading card games like the Magic: The Gathering TCG combine collectible cards with a strategy game. You don't know what you'll get in a Magic booster pack. You just start a collection and trade with other players to get the cards you want.
The best part about a trading card game is that it's always changing. You design and build your own unique decks, and each Magic game you play is different. New Magic expansions are released a few times a year, and each new expansion brings new ways to stupefy and defeat your opponents.
