Amonkhet Open House is day April 15. Unfortunately, you don’t get Amonkhet cards at the Amonkhet Open House. However, if you bring in a Standard format deck, or use a demo deck we can provide, and play a game with someone else, you will receive a foil Amonkhet land card. Quantities are limited though. You must be a DCI member to participate but no worries if you are not, we can sign you up on the spot.
Modern Masters 2017 goes on sale March 17. We will take pre-payment for boxes until March 15 for $199.99 if you have a Preferred Customer card or $239.99 if you do not.
Our local Jimmy John’s dropped off a platter of sandwiches for tonight’s Friday Night Magic tournament. Thanks Jimmy John’s
We had several players report missing cards from their Aether Revolt packs during the pre-release weekend. We contacted WOTC regarding this and received the following emails:
We appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. You can rest assured that your report has been passed up to the appropriate teams for further review! Furthermore, your players are more than welcome to contact us at www.wizards.com/customerservice to start the product replacement process for any damaged cards they received. Please note, however, that we will be unable to provide replacement promotional foil cards as all prerelease materials are sent out to stores for the event itself.
They can also email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
or even just send the defective card into us directly at the address below:
Wizards of the Coast
Attn: Product Replacement
PO Box 707
Renton, WA 98057-0707
Plus, we’ll include something extra on the return to cover the shipping costs!
If they send it to us directly, they will need to include a letter with a full description of the issue, their first and last name, mailing address, phone number (with area code) and an email address for shipping purposes, or in case we need to contact them for any reason.
The Aether Revolt Pre-release starts at midnight the morning of January 14. As of this posting, there are 19 spaces still available across the 4 tournaments. Each space costs $30 or you can sign up for all 4 for only $100. See you tomorrow night. We will open at 10 a.m. Friday January 13 and close around 4 a.m. on January 14th.
The 2016 Magic Commander Decks arrived today but are selling briskly. We have less than 2 cases left from our initial order and that is just in one day.
The long awaited Volo’s Guide to Monsters arrived Friday. We will only carry the limited edition cover, which will only have one printing, until they sell out, at which time we will shift to the regular cover, so if you want the limited cover, get it now.
Friday Night Sept. 30 we will host a Bundle tournament for the new Magic set, Kaladesh. For $45, players receive 1 Kaladesh Bundle from which to construct a 40 card deck with which they will duel 3 rounds, receiving 1 prize pack per round won. If at least 8 players sign up, 1 lucky player will receive a From the Vault: Lore set as a door prize.
