What is the Sealed Deck Format?
The Sealed Deck format allows players to use the Magic booster packs to play games in a tournament setting. Players simply open six booster packs and build a deck from the cards they opened. Guidelines require a minimum deck size of 40 cards and allow players to add as many basic lands (Plains, Islands, Swamps, Mountains, and Forests) to their card pools as they like. If you're looking for a fun way to increase the size of your Magic collection and play the game at the same time, the Sealed Deck format is for you!
What is Open Dueling?
Open Dueling is an side event that's runs during the whole pre-release weekend. Its an open play format, so you can play any opponent you like. Entry fee is $16. You will get your choice of MtG Planeswalker Pack and Open Dueling Card, to battle 5 opponents. Complete your five matches and return your Open Dueling Card for an MtG booster prize pack.
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.
