What to Expect During the Event
Last year, the Unstable set for Magic the Gathering brought back wacky silver-bordered booster drafts. This weird format ("format" isn't the right word, but it's the first one that comes to find) has some of the silliest cards we have ever played. Cards that you throw across the table. Cards that fundamentally undermine the stability of the rules. Cards that– well, you get the picture. Our community fell in love with the set; we must have drafted this thing 20 times or something like that.
We're bringing back the set – one year after it's original release – so that our community can enjoy the Magic of Unstable again!
Each player will receive three Unstable Magic the Gathering booster packs that they will use to draft with during the event. We will then play three rounds, with each round being the "best of 3" against a single opponent. These three rounds will follow the Swiss Tournament format, which means that all players will play all three rounds, and that each round the tournament software will pair them against an opponent who has been performing similarly during the event.
At the conclusion of the event, we will distribute prizes! Everyone will receive Throne of Eldraine booster packs at the event's conclusion. Players who have a "neutral record" or better (wins >/= losses) will receive additional prize packs based on that record. Prize packs can be exchanged for $3 each store credit immediately following the event – this store credit is usable on anything except future event entry. Each participant in the event will add 1.75 packs to the pool (with the total rounded up).
