fat pack

No idea what a Fat Pack Tournament is? Long time Magic players will remember the Sealed Deck tournaments of yore. This is similar. Purchase and open a SOI Fat Pack and build a 40 card play deck from the contents. All other cards are your sideboard. You will receive 1 pack of SOI for each round you win and the lovely trophy above if you have the best standing after play is complete. Hope to see you Friday!
