Battle for Zendikar Pre-Release
Saturday and Sunday September 26th-27th
Battle for Zendikar is the latest set for Magic: the Gathering, and the first set in the new Zendikar block. Batle for Zendikar (BFZ) sees a number of Planeswalkers return to the wild plane of Zendikar where the Eldrazi had been trapped for eons, until being freed in the original Zendikar block. Once again, the entire plane is coming to life to fight the alien menace of the Eldrazi.
The original Zendikar set was one of the most popular Magic sets of all time due to fetch lands, the landfall mechanic, and full-art basic lands. Battle for Zendikar builds upon this popularity, introducing an all new set of dual lands, new full-art basics, and “Zendikar Expeditions”, a special 25-card insert set of full-art foil lands, including fetchs, shocks, and the new duals. These cards will be HOT.
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 where each player will receive a special kit containing six Battle for Zendikar pre-release packs, a promo card, and a spindown life counter. New in this set, ANY rare or mythic rare can appear as a date-stamped promo card! Each player builds a 40 card minimum deck from the cards in their kit and basic lands.
There are four separate events throughout the weekend. Sealed deck at midnight Saturday, Sealed deck at 11AM Saturday, Two-Headed Giant Sealed at 4PM on Saturday, and Sealed deck at 12:00PM on Sunday.
Pre-registration (at the store or over the phone) is STRONGLY recommended. Pre-Release events are very popular and this event especially so. Avoid disappointment and pre-register early!

The ultimate prize for the door prize giveaway is a copy of From the Vault: Angels! Pre-register and pre-pay for 3 total events across the weekend and receive THREE door prize tickets per event!

The Board of Mystery will be seeded with lots of promos from previous releases, including some very special surprises!
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!
