MTG Battlebond Preview Weekend

Battlebond is an exciting new side-set being released by WotC to bolster multi-player play.  Cards in Battlebond will work amazing in multi-player games of Commander, Two-Headed Giant, Emperor etc.  To celebrate this special release we will be holding a Preview Weekend, which is similar to a Prerelease with some differences:

When: We will be hosting three Battlebond Preview events:

Saturday, June 2nd, 10:00am
Saturday, June 2nd, 2:00pm
Sunday, June 3rd, 12:00pm

Format: Two-Headed Giant Sealed (special Battlebond size pool) [Teams of 2], 3 Rounds, No Cut

Teams Get: Teams will get a total of only 6 Battlebond Booster Packs to build their two decks with.  Usually in a Two-Headed Sealed event it is 8 packs, but Battlebond is more efficient in this format so WotC recommends 6.  Basic lands will be provided.  Teams must build two 40-card minimum decks to play with.  Pay attention to interesting synergies like Partner when building your decks!  All participants will also get a Hero’s Reward, Stronghold Members will get a second one!

Prizes: 5 Battlebond Booster Packs/Team will be added to a Prize Pool.  Players will each win a booster pack for each match win and 1 pack per player will be added to a winners pool where any teams that go 2-1 get a bonus back each, and any teams that go 3-0 split the rest.
