Prereleases are Sealed Deck format events, where players are given Prerelease Packs (Typically 6 booster packs of 15 cards) and 45 minutes to construct a 40-card minimum deck.
Players who are uncomfortable building a Sealed Deck may participate in Open Dueling instead of the main tournament. Players may purchase one Planeswalker deck of their choice to experience the new set a week before it hits shelves.
This event will be 3 rounds long (with time allocated for deck building in the beginning), swiss paired consisting of 50-minute rounds.
Players get to keep all of the cards opened in their Prerelease Pack or Intro Pack. In addition Prerelease Packs contain a premium foil stamped with the Prerelease date.
[Participation Pack] Each player will receive 1 free booster pack for completing in all 3 rounds.
[Pack Per Win] One booster pack will be awarded for each round won.
Prerelease events focus on fun and enjoying the upcoming Magic expansion, allowing players a chance to experience the newest cards in a fun and stress-free environment. That said, as Sealed Deck tournaments, they follow certain rules for deck construction and play.
- Decks must be constructed with a minimum of 40 cards.
- Decks may only be built using cards opened in the Prerelease Packs assigned at the beginning of the event, and no outside cards may be added.
- Decks may be altered between games and rounds.
