Standard Super Series-01
Aether Revolt Standard Super Series

Beginning this Friday February 17 and running through Saturday, April 15, we'll be putting the focus on Standard here at Phoenix for a thing we're going to call the Standard Super Series!  So if you like playing Standard, keep reading to find out how you can win exclusive promos and even play-mats!

Standard Super Series Rules

So let's start off with the "what the heck are you talking about and where did this all come from" thoughts that some of you are probably having. If you haven't seen this yet, there's an article up on Wizard's Play Network that you can find here, that talks about a promotion they're doing to try to encourage stores to run more Standard events. They've given all the stores a lot of leeway with regard to how those events take place, only that we have at least 15 Standard events between the dates they specify. Given all that, here's what we've decided to do!

To participate in our Standard Super Series, all you have to do is follow these simple steps.

Step 1: Play in 4 Standard FNM Events

We're making it pretty easy to do this.  Beginning this Friday and probably going on indefinitely - Standard events for FNM at Phoenix are now weekly!  Our drafts will still oscillate between Tuesdays and Fridays, but we've decided to make sure that every Friday will always be an opportunity to play Standard for the foreseeable future.

Step 2: Play in 2 of our Saturday Standard Super Series Events

Over the course of the next 3 months, we'll be hosting 6 Saturday double-sized Standard events that will count towards this goal.  These tournaments will be double the regular entry fee ( $10 per person) but will also provide double the prize packs each round.  The winner of each event will be eligible for one of the playmats should they complete step 1 (in addition to all the booster packs you'll be taking home).  The dates for these events are:

  • February 25 - 12:00 PM
  • March 4 - 12:00 PM
  • March 18 - 12:00 PM
  • March 25 - 12:00 PM
  • April 1 - 12:00 PM
  • April 15 - 12:00 PM

That's all there is to it!  Do these 2 things and you could be taking home some of the promo cards once we've got them!

What can I win?

Just by participating in the Standard Super Series, we'll have one of the following alternate art promo lands available to you once we receive them (caveat here: we're only getting a few of each of these lands; if the number of qualifying players exceeds the supply, we'll have a drawing for the cards and announce the winners via this website). Winners of one of the Saturday tournaments will be entered in a drawing to receive 1 of the 3 new Amonkhet playmats.
