(Online sales end 1 hour before all events)
Release weekend promo card“The dragon’s plans spanned millennia and his perception straddled centuries, a winding maze of possibility and circumstance and statistics and likelihood. Usually the dragon played the odds when shaping his decisions—but now, to manifest his needs, the dragon would need to be violent in his choices….” Hour of Devastation Prerelease story snippit..WOTC.
The sands of Amonkhet swirl from the wind of the drumbeat wings as the greatest of dragons battles his fellow gods for the fate of those below, living, dead or something more than both. At the Hour of Devastation Prerelease…battle with or as those gods to determine who will live, die, or go to Jack in the box later as zombies. (Hey, just ’cause you’re undead doesn’t mean a shake won’t hit the spot. Besides, where else can a zombie go at 3 in the morning when everyone else is sleeping.) Welcome to the second chapter in the Egyptian-inspired desert plane, where life after death is just part of life…
When: Events– Friday Night Magic at 7, Sat, Two Headed Giant at 4, Sun at 11 and a League Starter Sealed, Sunday at 11 pm.
What: Draft–Each player gets 3 packs, opens and picks a card and passes the rest to the person next to them. Lather, rinse and repeat until all the cards from the packs have been picked. Take about 23-26 of the 40+ cards you get and add land to make a 40 card minimum deck. Play 3 rounds, win a round, win a pack with an option of a free draft to those who go undefeated. Since it’s a new set, and none of us know what we are doing yet, it’s a great time for new players to come and join.
Who: Who’s it good for? Since everyone is starting from scratch from a new set, this is a great event for all players. We run a very friendly shop, so particularly for the casual events, feel free to ask for and get help in figuring out what to make. Regardless of what happens, you get to keep all your cards and have a day worth of fun.
