Want to be the first player in your area to experience new cards as soon as they come out—or even before they're on sale? Magic: The Gathering New Set Celebrations are the events for you.
Can't wait to get your hands on the newest Magic: The Gathering expansion set? Want to join thousands of players all over the globe as they get a sneak peek into the future of the game before the new set hits the shelves? Become a part of the New Set Celebration by making your way to a Prerelease!
Prereleases happen all around the world on the Saturday or Sunday one week before a new expansion set is available for retail sale. It gives players their first chance to see and play with the new cards. Prereleases are perfect for new and experienced players offering DCI sanctioned play and featuring the Sealed Deck format. Plus, a special edition foil promo card is given out to participants just for signing up to play at the prerelease (while supplies last).
See and play the cards before anyone else, plus get cool prizes just for signing up! You can use the Magic Locator in the left-hand navigational bar of this page to find a Prerelease near you.
Magic Game Day gives you a shot at glory by becoming a local champion! Run in local game and hobby stores around the world a month after a new card set is available in stores, Magic Game Day is a great way to interact with your local players and see how the new cards shape the Constructed metagame.
Magic Game Day features the Standard format, showcasing the new card set in the most popular format in the world. A selection of Top 8 decks will be published on this site after each Game Day.
Magic Leagues happen in local stores all over the world. Starting the day a new card set goes on sale, Leagues offer an on-going six-week play experience with cool prizes.
The suggested format for the Innistrad League is Sealed Deck — Each player receives six Innistrad booster packs to use for building a deck. Over the course of the league, you will be able to add more boosters to your league deck. Each participant should play five matches per week, for a total of 30 over the course of the league. Players joining the Innistrad League late can play extra matches to catch up to the current match cap of five times the current total of weeks of the league.
