Last month marked the Little Shop of Magic's 20th year in business and this month we're celebrating with a huge party on October 24th, 25th and 26th!

While we gear up for the festivities, we want you to get the party warmed up by sending us the kookiest, funniest and craziest video birthday wishes you can come up with (we'll take sexy too, so long as you know how to keep it PG-13). We'll reward your efforts by giving away $300 in Dragon's Dough cards to our most creative and entertaining fans.*

To participate in our 'Birthday Crits' contest, grab your cellphone, camera, webcam or any other handy video-recording device and film a short 'happy birthday' wish for the Little Shop of Magic. If you're good with animation, go for it! If you have lots of friends who are also our fans, get together and shoot a group video! And if you feel like you should be in Hollywood, then give us your best Robert De Niro! As we said before, we're looking for creativity, so just about anything goes!

We'll showcase them on our website and our social media channels, where the rest of the world can join in the fun by sharing and commenting. The creators of our top 4 favorite videos will be rewarded with a $50 Dragon's Dough card and 4 lucky fans chosen at random from those who share, like, +1, re-tweet or comment using the #ShopOfMagic20 hashtag will each receive a $25 Dragon's Dough card.

To send in your videos, please contact us for detailed instructions. Winners will be announced on our website on November 9th, 2014.*

 

*Minimum of 12 video submissions needed to launch promotion. Final day for video submission is Friday, October 31st.

Announcing the 2015 Core Set Standard League Winners!

Most people wouldn't dare to touch Garruk's axe, but those same people would tell you that it takes a person of unmeasurable power to wield the gargantuan weapon. Andrew Susin, Master of the Hamster Plane, has proved that he is worthy of claiming Garruk's axe, if he should meet the brute in battle. After a five week long campaign, Andrew dominated his competition, ending the league with a hefty 97 points. Sir Roger , Noble Knight of House Tyndall, came in second with valiant 67 points, but still was overshadowed by Andrew's impressive score. A swift congratulations to all of our participants and we hope to see you during our Khans of Tarkir sealed league.

The dust has settled on the battlefields of Caen. All of Western Immoren sought to tap into the powerlin leylines that surge below Caen's tremoured face. Yet only one warcaster proved vailiant enough to defend both the leylines and cities near the battlefields. Ryan " Mageling" Henning, representing the Purist faction, fought his way through the ranks to ensure the well being of the people of Caen. George Bailey Kirby--the champion for the Oppertunist faction--was close on the Mageling's heels but Ryan's years of training at high altitudes increased his stamina and proved too much for George. The full standinds can be viewed here. Congratulations to all the participants and we'll see you for the final league in the Scars of Caen saga!
