MTG Battlebond Release Draft

This Friday, during FNM, our players will have the chance to play a Two-Headed Giant draft using Battlebond!  This will be an option for our regular FNM draft time, so if there are enough players interested we will run both the Battlebond Release draft, and the regular Dominaria draft.

When: Friday, June 8, 6:30pm – 10:00pm

Entry Fee: $20.00 -or- 6 Hero’s Rewards (the same are our regular FNM draft)

Two-Player Draft: For a 2HG draft players with with their team mate, and we run pods of 8 players (4 teams) ideally.  Teams get 4 packs for Battlebond, and open one pack at a time, and select two cards from each pack as they are passed.  Matches are a best-of-one.  We will play 3 rounds, just like our usual FNM Drafts, and prizes are distributed similarly.

Battlebond Launch Promos & Bonus Pack: In a typical FNM Draft our players draft with 3 packs each.  Since Battlebond recommends only 4 packs for a team draft, players will each get a Battlebond booster pack at the end regardless of how they do.  Additionally we will pass out, at random, special Battlebond Promo packs, which contain a pair of partner cards in them, to each team.  These promos WILL be passed out before drafting, and teams CAN use the promos in their draft decks.

Prizes: Like our regular FNM drafts we will put 1.5 boosters in to a prize pool for each player, and those packs will be distributed among the teams that go 2-1 and better.  This is an FNM event too, so it does qualify for our FNM promo cards (Cast Down) as well.

So be sure to jump on this rare opportunity at a Two-Headed Draft, and celebrate the first ever multiplayer focused set!

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

Entry Fee: $20.00 /or/ 6 Hero’s Rewards

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.
