The letter I!gnite the Dawn

The Innistrad and Dark Ascension sets showed us a world where humanity is beset on all sides by monsters, including vampires, zombies, and werewolves. Avacyn, a living covenant whose angelic powers protected humans, was imprisoned within the Helvault and feared lost forever. But just as humanity's darkest hour beckons, Avacyn is freed, inspiring hosts of angels to usher in a new dawn. But even though they no longer have the upper hand, the creatures of the night are still a dangerous threat. The struggle continues in this thrilling conclusion to the Innistrad block.

Avacyn Restored will be available in the Magic Online Store on Monday, May 21 at 9:00 AM.

Avacyn Restored Release Events begin after the downtime Wednesday, May 23 and will consist of five parts:

  • Avacyn Restored Booster Draft Queues
  • Avacyn Restored 16-player Swiss Sealed Queues
  • Avacyn Restored 64-Player "Top 8" Premier Drafts (beginning May 25)
  • Avacyn Restored "Top 8" Swiss Sealed Events (beginning May 25)
  • Avacyn Restored Release Events Championship (June 9)

Avacyn Restored becomes legal in ALL constructed formats following the May 16 scheduled downtime. Although it's the third set of the Innistrad block, the Avacyn Restored set will be a large set. This means that Innistrad Block Constructed will be composed of all three sets, but Avacyn Restored will be drafted by itself. Sealed events will use six Avacyn Restored booster packs. All appropriate Daily Events, Scheduled Events, and Queues will have Avacyn Restored added to their prize structures after the scheduled maintenance on Wednesday, May 23.

Although players may have multiple accounts qualified for the Avacyn Restored Release Events Championship, players are not permitted to have more than one of their accounts entered in any single event at one time. Players are not permitted to have any accounts entered in events played by other players for any reason. If a player is discovered to have more than one account playing in any end-of-season championship or championship event before, during, or after the event, Wizards may take action against that player's account(s), up to and including disqualification with no refund of product and/or event tickets, suspension of the offending account(s), and/or termination of the offending account(s).

Using an account other than your own, allowing any other player to use your account, selling your account, and other similar actions are all violations of the Magic Online User Agreement. If you play in Magic Online events, win, and expect to get your prize, be very, very sure you are playing on your own account. We do not recognize excuses, such as "I and a friend jointly own the account," "It's my brother's account but he gave it to me," or similar. The only exception is an adult may authorize a single dependent child age 13-18 to play on an account that the adult has established.

It will be the player's responsibility to make sure that they have been properly entered into this event and are able to join it PRIOR to the start of the Championship. If a player is qualified and is unable to join the Championship, they will need to contact customer service for assistance.

For all Avacyn Restored Release Events, Wizards of the Coast may modify, suspend, and/or cancel an event, substitute prizes, or change the costs and/or schedule for an event without notice, at its sole discretion.
