Back in mid-May we got some exciting news about the next steps for Magic: the Gathering and yesterday, we learned that not only would we be throwing cards in the epic TCG, but we would be granted entrance to Ravnica through the new D&D title, Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica, marking the first collaboration between the two Wizards of the Coast powerhouse titles.
We are super thirsty for this new set and all the FLGS events that will open the gateway to Ravnica and send us careening into new battles. Get ready to mark your calendars and let your shop know you're interested in playing during one of these events because they only have until August 13th to confirm that they'd like to host them.
Prerelease Party: Guilds of Ravnica - 9/29/2018-9/30/2018
These events are great for new and beginner players or for veterans to bring new friends to. They feature Sealed Decks, Two-headed Giant Sealed Deck, no rounds, and two person or group play.
Ravnica Weekend: Guilds of Ravnica - 11/9/2018-11/11/2018
This is a great mid season event for draft play and Guild Kit battles. It also features a coordinated Dungeons & Dragons event with a Ravnica setting adventure module. This is a great opportunity for new players, but is primarily a fantastic setting for engaged super fans to bring their best battle face to the table.
- Standard Showdown: Guilds of Ravnica 10/14/2018-12/29/2018
- These weekends feature standard format and three round ranked games. These are typically the most competitive events and are typically well suited to experienced players. It's also your chance to acquire with rares, mythics, and foils from Guilds of Ravnica and other recent sets.
