Rivals of Ixalan Launch League

RIX Site Dividers-07

For those of you wanting a more casual sealed experience, we're also starting our Launch league a week early on Saturday, January 20th.  Beginning January 20th, Phoenix will be hosting our sealed launch league in partnership with the Queer Geek Facebook group!  This league is designed for casual play and can be conducted in store or out. The match structure lends itself to shorter games that can easily be played between matches at other events, at home with a friend, or at one of our weekly league gatherings that will happen on Saturdays after the launch of the league. To enter, just stop by the store anytime on or after January 20th.  Here are the details for how this league works!

Entry Fee: $25 (plus tax)

Format: 30 Card Sealed (1 game matches; each player receives a free mulligan)

When you enter the league you'll be asked to provide your Wizards Account Number. We'll give you a Rivals of Ixalan prerelease pack.  You pick 3 of them to open right now, and 3 to open as you progress through the league. Once a week on Saturday, you can open one of the additional boosters and add that to your pool. Should you lose 3 times, you are also allowed to purchase one additional pack to supplement your pool (only 1 additional pack is allowed to be added, for a max possible pool of 7 packs). We'll also give you a score card to record your games as well as a league box to store your deck in.

You can play matches anywhere and record the results of those matches on your score sheet (you can play more than the maximum amount of matches, but that will not have an effect on your score for the league). We'll put your score up on our league spreadsheet and update it weekly on Saturdays.

Prizes: 3 Packs per League Player (League prize information is currently being updated and this section will be updated with details once we have those!)
