Wednesday Drafts (changed from Thursdays)
This term we are in MC 2035.
We run a booster draft every Wednesday evening at 6pm. There is no entry fee, but players must either provide their own booster packs or purchase them on site ($10 for three packs). For prizes, we do a rare and foil re-draft, which means that all rares and foils are pooled at the end of the tournament, and players pick from then in finish order. Players must use sleeves if they desire to use any rare or foil cards in their decks, to protect the cards during play. The current draft format is DTK/DTK/FRF. Event is usually limited to three rounds of 45 minutes.
***NEW DRAFT LEAGUE!***
This term we're trying out a draft league. For the weekly draft, each player receives 3 points per win, 1 point per draw and one point for coming first in their pod towards the overall league standings. At the end of the term, we will be holding a rare and foil re-draft of Modern Masters 2015 with a $35 entry for the top 8 players of the league.
Friday Night Magic
We play Friday Night Magic (FNM) every Friday evening at 6 PM.
FNM Room Bookings are as follows*:
May 8 - July 24: AL 211
There is no entry fee, but for sealed events players must either provide their own booster packs or purchase them on site ($10 for three packs, $27 for eight packs). The prizes are provided by Wizards, including both the usual FNM foils as well as other promotional cards. We always play a Standard constructed format tournament, which uses cards from the most recent sets, and there is also always an alternate format tournament, which may be either constructed or limited. The alternate formats for upcoming weeks are listed in the event calendar below.
Other premier and non-premier tournaments are run throughout the year. Some tournaments are run by the club itself, and others are run by individual club members. Watch the calendar below and/or subscribe to the mailing list to learn more.
