Avacyn Restored League @ D20 Games

Welcome to the Avacyn Restored League at D20 Games.

What is it:  The league is an ongoing opportunity for casual competitive play starting the first week of Avacyn and going until the release of M13 this summer.

When: Formal League days are Weds, but matches may be played any time during the week.  Match results for each week must be received by the following Weds.

Cost: League costs $25 to enter (includes 6 packs) and $5 each week, including a pack for that week. (People buying fat-packs or boxes may opt to use 6 packs as long as permission is granted from staff.

Format: Sealed+ event

  • Start with 6 packs to build decks from, and get to add one pack per week
  • Packs must be opened in the store and the contents added to a deck list that is kept in the store.


  • Each player can play up to 5 matches with other different members of the league each week.  (Matches beyond 5 will not count in that week)
  • Each player in a match will get 1 point just for playing, and the winner will get 2 bonus points in addition for a total of 3.
  • It is good sportsmanship to accept a match challenge from anyone in the league provided both players have enough time.
  • Matches may be continued over more then one day if there is not enough time to complete all the games at once, though an incomplete game is considered a draw game (it can be played over if both players choose.)
  • As long as one game is completed, both players will get the minimum 1 point.

Standings and Prizes:

  • Since we are not charging much more then the cost of the packs, prizes will be more in the fun and pride side then high value.  Having said that, there are some very cool posters that will be the top prizes at the end as well as a full set of the over-sized Avacyn Legends that were in the Helvault
  • Standings will be posted each week on the website.
  • Each player who has competed at least 3 matches in a week will be entered in a drawing on Weds for a bonus pack.
  • At the end of the time the point totals will be added up and there will be a playoff with the top 8 players.  The top 4 players will also get bonus entry’s into the drawing for the rights to buy one of our From the Vault sets this summer.

As with most of our events, the goal is to play and have fun.  Everyone has a better time when we help each other out, pointing out missed triggers and plays so that we win by being the better players rather then by catching an opponent doing a dumb mistake or by not knowing how some part of the game works.

About Avacyn Restored…

From the Wizards website…

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 eternal struggle on Innistrad continues in this thrilling conclusion.

Don’t confuse this new dawn with a complete victory for humanity. Innistrad’s horrors have suffered a blow, but they still command unspeakable evil and power. If your decks favor the more unsavory denizens of Innistrad, you’ll find plenty of ways to torment the opposition. Will you follow Avacyn’s lead, Planeswalker, and marshal your powers for good? Or will you use the still potent weapons of the night in your quest for supremacy?

Avacyn Restored prerelease events at D20 Games Alameda

 NEWS: Avacyn will be Stand-alone set!  Prerelease will be ALL Avacyn. (preregister here)

We will be having 3 events for Avacyn Restored:  Friday at midnight, two-headed giant and Saturday Sealed deck events at 10 and at 5:30

Special Foil Promo for first 40 people in each Saturday Event
  • After Friday Night Magic:  (6:30.  $15) we will be doing the very first chance to get ahold of the new set..a  midnight Avacyn two headed giant
    This will be a sealed event, $18 per player, 8 packs for the team…if you don’t have a buddy to play with, don’t worry, come on down and we’ll match you up with a new buddy to play with.  We’ll do fairly fast deck building and play no more then 3 rounds so we can get done by 3 at the latest…we’re doing this for fun, so we’ll spread out the prize rather then having the winning be all that important.
Open the Helvault for the Prerelease
Both Saturday's Events will be Helvault opening events

Saturday:  The main pre release Events.  These will be fun events, with everyone getting their own packs to build decks and play each other.  There will be 4 rounds, with the players continually matching up by win/loss records, so the really competitve players will end up playing with their peers, and the casual players will end up playing with other casual players.  Regardless of win and loss, everyone gets their packs, the bonus cards they are entitled to and whatever is hidden as extra bonus in the Helvault.  This is a great event not just for the experienced players, but for anybody who just likes to play, and particularly for those who are looking to get back into the game, since everyone is starting from scratch again with the new set.

  • 10am and 5:30 We’ll be doing sealed deck (6 packs and make your best 40 card minimum deck and play.)
  • $25 entry fee includes the pack, a special bonus card for the first 45 people signed up in each time.
  • Registration for the first event will start at 9:30 and we will start deck building between 10:15-10:30. First rounds will be played around 11.  The early event should go around 4 (a bit later for the top players)  The second event will go from 5:30 to about 10 for most players, potentially later for the best players. We will provide packs starting at 5:00 to give people a longer time to build. (This is not a high level event, so we would rather people enjoy themselves then have us need to get as picky about things.)
  • FOR KIDS>>>there will be two events running side by side at both times, so the kids can play the kids and the adults play the adults. 😉  Both of these will be Helvalut events, so there will be extra prizes for all registered players.  We will work to open the Helvault around 8:30-9pm so the kids who might need to leave early will get the Helvault bonus prizes.  We will spread out the prizes more for the kids, with more people getting prizes, but the top people not getting as big a top prize.  Kids prizes will be more spread out and the adults will have the prizes more loaded to the top. As such, advanced kids will be able to play with the adults if they so choose.
  • Pizza and a drink for $5 will be offered at 2 and 6
