Dragon’s Maze Prerelease – April 26th & 27th – TGA Tampa & Orlando

Join us for the Dragon’s Maze Prerelease!

Held one week before each new Magic card set goes on sale, Prereleases  provide a way to play in a large-scale event in a low-stress  environment. You get to play with the cards before you can buy them,  special promotional cards are given out to attendees and the top players  can win even more cards. So have fun!

Prereleases are sanctioned by the DCI, which is the governing body for  all Magic tournaments – from the smallest local events up to the  multi-million dollar Pro Tour. Playing in a sanctioned event means your  results are recorded and begin to give you a player rating among the  thousands of Magic players worldwide. If you don’t have a DCI number  yet, the event staff on site can provide you with one. For many players,  Prereleases are a fun and easy way to play in their first sanctioned  events.

At Prerelease events, the emphasis is on casual play with a high degree  of sportsmanship. You don’t need to know the rules well, but you should  always be polite and respectful to your opponents. If there is a  disagreement, or a question about a ruling, please call a judge.

The Guild Prerelease packs at the Dragon’s Maze Prerelease are going to be a bit different than those you used at the Return to Ravnica and Gatecrash Prereleases. Inside they will have:

 

  • One Return to Ravnica Guild Booster Pack
  • Four Dragon’s Maze Booster Packs
  • One Gatecrash Guild Booster Pack

For example, let’s say you choose Boros as your guild at the Prerelease, then your guild pack could contain:

  • Azorius (Shares white)
  • Izzet (Shares red)
  • Rakdos (Shares red)
  • Selesnya (Shares white)

Also, for the purposes of the Prerelease activity, the guild you choose is the guild you are allied with for the event. Sure, you can pick the guild you are on Planeswalker Points, but you don’t have to. Your Planeswalker Points guild has no direct bearing on the Implicit Maze.

Go to the Dragon’s Maze Prerelease and experience the newest Magic: the Gathering set a week before it goes on sale!
