Zendikar Rising - Corporate League
Today is September 11th, 2020. Zendikar Rising release day is September 25th, just two weeks away! This means it's almost time for our next Corporate League!
What is a Magic League?
A league in Magic is a month long tournament using sealed packs from a given set. Each player starts with the same number of packs, and builds a 40 card deck. Over the course of the month, people may add more packs one per week, and one for each 3 losses up to a cap of 12 packs total. Games are played best of one, and players are encouraged to not play the same person twice in a row.
This format works well for networking! Everyone is on an even playing field, whether you are new to the game, or have played for years we all have the same number of packs. With best of one games, and not playing the same person twice in a row, games are quick and you end up playing a large variety of people.
At the end of the league, we have typically held a tournament for players from all companies to come and compete for the company trophy and the glory that comes with being the corporate champions of that set. With luck, our final tournament this time around will be in person, with proper social distancing rules, and an option for people to participate using Discord. Details to come!
For this league, games will begin Monday, September 28th and run through Friday, October 23rd. Weekly packs go out on October 5th, October 12th, and October 19th.
Not in Utah? Not a problem! We are playing games over Discord!
If you can get access to a prerelease kit and 6 other packs (Either from your local game store or from Game Grid in Lehi) and you have access to the internet and a webcam, we will invite you to join Game Grid's Discord server and you can play games with us that way!
