[M15 Pre-Release Events]

Magic: M15 Pre-Release Events
Saturday July 12th and Sunday July 13th

M15 is the latest Core Set for Magic: the Gathering. M15 continues the trend of previous core sets with new cards, and key reprints. M15 also introduces a slightly redesigned card border, updated font, and anti-counterfeiting holostamp on rare cards.

Magic Pre-Release events allow you to play with the latest Magic set before it releases to the general public. Pre-Release events are fun, casual tournaments designed for all skill levels.

This is a sealed deck event. Similar to previous events of this type, each participant will receive one of five pre-release kits oriented towards one of the five colors of Magic. Each kit contains 5 packs of M15, 1 special "color-seeded" pack, a promo card, a spindown d20 die, and an oversized Garruk Planeswalker card to be used in a fun side-event. Each player builds a 40-card minimum deck from the cards in their kit. You are allowed to use your pre-release promo in your deck!

There will be at least four events during Pre-Release weekend: Saturday July 12th at Midnight (Sealed Deck), Saturday July 12th at 11AM (Sealed Deck), Saturday July 12th at 3:30PM (2-Headed Giant Sealed), and Sunday July 13th at 12:00PM (Sealed Deck). If there is sufficient demand we will run a second sealed or 2-Headed Giant Sealed on Sunday.

Pre-registration (at the store) is strongly recommended. Pre-Release events are very popular and the total number of players in each of the five colors will be limited. In addition, pre-registering and pre-paying will give you TWO entries into the door prize raffle.

There will be a ton of cool giveaways for door prizes, including an all new Relentless Dragon playmat, sleeves, deck boxes, and more. Also, we will be raffling off the 9-foot tall Garruk standee to one lucky winner.

Also, starting with M15 we are introducing a cool new feature--the mystery foil board! For every match win, pick a card from the foil board. You might pull a foil common, maybe a foil rare, or maybe an expensive highly-sought after card!

The cost is, as always, $25.

There will be 4 total swiss rounds with prize payouts based on your overall record in the event. (Payout tables are based on minimum 32-player participation.) WOTC limits total prize pool to two packs per participating player, thus payouts will be lower with less players.

Pre-releases are casual, fun events where you get the opportunity to play with the new set's cards before they release. If you've never attended a tournament before, this is a great way to get involved with no pressure!

Journey into Nyx is a "small" set and continues the themes set forth in Theros and Born of the Gods, presenting Magic's unique take on popular Greek and Roman mythology.

Theros block is an enchantment themed block, the first such theme since Urza's block 15 years ago!

The pre-release events allow you to play with the latest Magic set before it releases to the general public. Pre-release events are casual, fun events where you can play with new cards, make some new friends, and win great prizes as well.

There are five Pre-release Packs to choose from; each color has a heroic path: White--Forged in Glory, Blue--Forged in Intellect, Black--Forged in Tyranny, Red--Forged in War, and Green--Forged in Pursuit. The Journey into Nyx Pre-release will also be players' next opportunity to earn a Hero Card, which they can use to Defeat a God at the Journey into Nyx Game Day.

The cost is, as always, $25.

There are tons of great prizes to be won at Pre-Release events, both in the main events and through our door prize raffles. Door prizes range from deck boxes, sleeves, promo cards, play mats, packs, all the way up to special ultimate prizes. This time around we will be giving away Commander decks, fat packs, and other cool prizes.

How do you win these great prizes? Simply play! Every entrant to an event will receive one raffle ticket with their entry. If you pre-register and pre-pay for the event prior to Wednesday April 23rd, you will receive two door prize raffle tickets for each event you sign up for.

Theros looks to continue a strong growth in Magic, following the immensely popular Innistrad and Return to Ravnica blocks. Similar to Innistrad, Theros is designed in a "top-down" fashion, ensuring that the Greek and Roman mythology "flavor" permeates every aspect of the set.

[FTV20 Logo]

From the Vault: Twenty

From the Vault: Twenty (FTV:20) releases this Friday August 23rd. FTV:20 is the sixth From the Vault set and the first to raise the number of cards in the set from 15 to 20. FTV:20 is designed to showcase cards from Pro Tour or World Championship decks over the past twenty years of Magic's history.

Of course the main highlight of this set is Jace the Mind Sculptor, the most powerful planeswalker card ever printed. Additional highlights include the first time Hymm to Tourach is printed in a new border and foiled. Dark Ritual, Fyndhorn Elves, and other cards also receive the special FTV foiling treatment.

FTV sets are very limited in their printing with each Wizards Play Network (WPN) store only receiving up to 20 copies. Mass market retailers can never receive these sets, making them even more difficult to obtain. Please contact the store directly for details on how to obtain a copy of FTV:20.

[FTV box]


[Gatecrash logo]

Gatecrash Pre-Release Events!

Gatecrash is the second set in the wildly popular Return to Ravnica block. The first set, Return to Ravnica quickly became one of the three highest selling Magic sets in history based on the popularity of returning to the all-city plane of Ravnica. The plane of Ravnica was last visited in 2003's iconic Ravnica: City of Guilds block. Return to Ravnica reintroduced players to 5 of Ravnica's 10 dual-colored guilds. Gatecrash continues this process as a large set (249 cards) and reintroduces the remaining 5 guilds.

Like RTR before it, Gatecrash is destined to be a super hot release. The pre-release events allow you to play with the latest Magic set before it releases to the general public. Pre-release events are casual, fun events where you can play with new cards, make some new friends, and win great prizes as well.

There will be four events during Pre-Release weekend: Saturday January 26th at Midnight (Sealed Deck), Saturday January 26th at 11AM (Sealed Deck), Saturday January 26th at 3:30PM (2-Headed Giant Sealed), and Sunday January 27th at 12:00PM (Sealed Deck).

This is a sealed deck event, but with a special twist just for Return to Ravnica block events. Each player will receive a special "Guild Box" for their chosen guild. The box contains 5 Gatecrash packs, 1 special guild pack (plus guild-specific pre-release promo), a spindown die, and other goodies. Also, continuing the theme from RTR, you'll be able to play your pre-release promo card in your sealed deck!

Pre-registration (at the store) is strongly recommended. There will be a limit of 60 total players for each event, 12 for each of the five guilds represented in Gatecrash. Thus, if you are interested in a specific guild it is imperative that you pre-register early to lock in your preferred guild. Sign-up sheets at the store allow for a 1st and 2nd choice for guilds.

The cost is, as always, $25.

Events are run as swiss pairing with 4 total rounds. Prize payouts are based on your overall record in the event. Thus your tie-breakers are not critical--only your total round wins. Prizes are provided by Wizards of the Coast with a total prize pool equal to 2 packs of Gatecrash per participating player. Please see the store for a list of prize payouts based on Win/Loss records.

Additional door prizes will be awarded by random raffle during the Saturday 11AM event and the Sunday 12PM event. Every entrant will receive one raffle ticket. Those who pre-register for the events prior to the day of the event will receive two raffle tickets.

Pre-releases are casual, fun events where you get the opportunity to play with the new set's cards before they release. If you've never attended a tournament before, this is a great way to get involved with no pressure!

[Return to Ravnica Logo]

Booster Box Presales

Return to Ravnica will be released the first week of October. Return to Ravnica (RTR) is the most hotly anticipated Magic release in many, many years. The original Ravnica: City of Guilds was one of, not the most popular Magic sets in history. RTR brings the Magic game back to the city-plane of Ravnica with tons of great new cards as well as reprints of the "shock lands". The shock lands are tournament staples, particularly in the Modern Constructed format and are highly sought after.

We are currently taking pre-orders in the store for sealed booster boxes of Return to Ravnica. Many stores, including the "big 3" online are pre-selling RTR boxes for $120! As a service to our great customers we are continuing to maintain our standard pre-order price of $100/box! Box pre-orders will be honored through pre-release weekend (while supplies last!) at the price of $100. Unfortunately we cannot take credit card orders over the phone, so you must come to the store to reserve your box. Payment must be made in full at the time of reservation.

Return to Ravnica will undoubtedly be a hot commodity for the near future. Like other popular sets demand will outstrip supply for at least the first month or two of the set's release. Also, online speculation points to most stores selling boxes of RTR after release for full retail price--$144! We have not determined a price point yet for box sales post-release, however we absolutely cannot guarantee that boxes will be available for sale at all post-release if you did not pre-order one!

Stop in and order your box(es) of Return to Ravnica before its too late!


[Magic Celebration logo]

Magic Celebration is a casual limited-format tournament that is completely free to all participants! This is the second year that Celebration is running. Last year's event was a huge success and was a lot of fun for all participants.

Celebration is run in the "Mini-Masters" format, also known as Pack Wars. Each player will receive one free booster of M13. Without looking at the contents (while still removing the basic land and token), shuffle in 3 copies of each basic land. Players who win their round will receive a 2nd booster pack to add to their deck. At this point, players can modify and customize their deck to create a 40-card deck by adding or removing cards or land. 3 total rounds will be played, giving players the opportunity to receive up to 4 free M13 booster packs.

Magic Celebration is intended to be a casual, fun tournament to introduce new players to Magic and playing in events. Sign-ups begin at 11AM and the event will begin at noon. There is no cost to join and play.


Pokemon: Dragons Exalted Pre-Release

[Pokemon Dragons Exalted]

Dragons Exalted is the next set in the Pokemon Black and White series. This set continues the previous themes of highly powerful Pokemon EX cards, while also highlighting some of Pokemon's most powerful and iconic dragon-types.

A pre-release event allows players to play with cards from the newest set up to two weeks prior to the set's release. The Relentless Dragon is proud to be hosting a Dragons Exalted Pre-Release event in conjunction with TJ Collectibles on Sunday, July 29th. Sign-ups for the event begin at 10:15 AM and the tournament begins at 11:00 AM. The cost to play is $25 which covers six packs of Dragons Exalted with which to build a 40-card minimum deck. Players will also receive a pre-release promo card and another promotional item (typically a deck box), while supplies last. All players who complete four rounds of swiss pairings will also receive two additional Dragons Exalted booster packs as a prize.

Players will be divided into three different groups based on age and will only be paired with other players in those groups so pre-release events are a great introduction to tournament player for players of all ages.

Magic: Dark Ascension Pre-Release

[Ravenous Demon Promo Card]

Dark Ascension is the 2nd set in the highly-popular Innistrad block. Innistrad's gothic horror theme has struck a resonant chord in many players, setting it on the path to easily become Magic's best-selling set of all-time. Innistrad also broke down many barriers, including the hallowed Magic card back--introducing Double-Faced Cards (DFCs). DFCs have proved to be controversial, but extremely popular.

Pre-release events are a weekend-long celebration of a new set prior to its official release. You cannot buy Dark Ascension cards until the week after the pre-release, but you can own them by participating in one or more Dark Ascension Pre-Release events. Pre-release events are a fun, casual event geared to players of all skill levels. If you have never played a sanctioned Magic event before this is the perfect opportunity to try one out!

Events will begin at Midnight on Saturday, January 28th with a sealed deck event. Sign-ups for this event will begin during FNM on Friday night. Players will be given 3 packs of Dark Ascension and 3 packs of Innistrad with which to build a deck. Basic land is provided by the store for those who need it. Participants will also receive a full Ravenous Demon/Archdemon of Greed double-faced promo card. The cost for the event is $25 and prizes will be awarded based on individual records after 4 rounds of swiss play.

The next two events occur during the day on Saturday, including the "main event" sealed deck event on Saturday at 11AM. If you only attend one event this weekend, this would be the one. We also hold raffles for awesome door prizes during this main event. Similar to the midnight event, participants will receive 3 packs of Dark Ascension and 3 packs of Innistrad. Prizes are awarded based on four rounds of swiss play. The 2nd event of Saturday is a Sealed Deck 2-headed giant event at 3:30PM. Grab a teammate and play the two-headed giant variant of Magic.

Finally, on Sunday at 12PM we will be hosting our final Sealed Deck event of the weekend--your last chance to play with Dark Ascension cards until the next week when the set officially releases.

For more details on each of these events, including prize structures, check out the "Events" section of our Facebook Page, or feel free to drop us a line, or drop by the store and chat.

Now Stocking: Pathfinder!

[Pathfinder Core Rulebook]

We are beginning to stock the Pathfinder RPG by Paizo Publishing. Pathfinder is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition. Pathfinder is based on the older D&D 3.5 Edition game that was extremely popular with the player base. The Pathfinder product line is an extremely extensive line of rulebooks, campaign guides, and adventure paths. At this time we will begin to carry and keep in stock the 'core' rulebooks including the new boxed "Beginner Set". We also now have the first set of the Pathfinder pre-painted minis in stock.


Alliances Boosters in Stock!

[Alliances Booster Box Image]

We have received a very limited supply of booster boxes of the Alliances expansion from 1996! Alliances was a small expansion, the 2nd set in the Ice Age block. Alliances followed the less-than-stellar Homelands expansion and was considered to have been underprinted. What is the appeal of Alliances to current Magic players? First and foremost a card called Force of Will! The rise of the EDH/Commander format has also seen a rise in popularity and price of other cards from the set, including Thawing Glaciers and Lake of the Dead.

These boosters are HOT and won't be in-stock long. The last time we had Alliances in stock (2 boxes worth) they sold out completely within 10 business hours. Drop by the store today to pick up your packs!


Weekly Legacy Events

[Force of Will Card Image]

Weekly Legacy events at the Relentless Dragon! Legacy is currently one of the hottest constructed formats in Magic. Legacy is an eternal format--that is, the sets legal for Legacy never rotate. New sets become Legacy legal, but aside from that the only other changes are the occasional changes to the banned and restricted lists.

Cost to enter will be only $5, with 100% prize payout as store credit. The more of your friends you bring, the more prize money for everyone! This will be an unsanctioned event and we will allow up to 15 proxies per deck. This way, you can play with your unfinished deck and hopefully win some store credit to fill in those proxies with real cards!
