MTG Theros Beyond Death Prerelease Weekend

The Theros Beyond Death set has everyone excited – this is truly an incredible set, with some awesome themes and cards. We are all itching to crack open some packs and get to playing with what might be the most narrative set yet. Your first chance at the set is the prerelease weekend, and do we ever have you covered when it comes to options!

Formats: We are running three different formats this weekend. We will be hosting both regular, and two-headed giant sealed deck events. And, we are hosting a casual Prerelease for our younger players.

Sealed Deck & Two-Headed Giant Sealed Deck

Entry Fee: $45.00 // $40.00 for Stronghold Members // 9 Hero’s Rewards
Format: Swiss // 4 Rounds // Prerelease Pack includes 6 Theros Beyond Death Boosters, a die & a Promo // 50mins per round. For Two-Headed Giant players play in teams of Two.
Prizes: We will add three Theros Beyond Death packs to the prize pool per participant. Each match (aka best of 3 round) a player wins will earn them a prize pack.  Remaining packs (1 per person) are distributed among undefeated and 3-1 players (3-1 players get +1 pack, undefeated players split the rest, usually that means between 12-16 packs).  We will also randomly distribute a second Hero’s Reward for every 5 participants (including one to any winless players – which means everyone gets something!). Each participant gets a Hero’s Reward.

Youth Prerelease Party

Entry Fee: $40.00 for Stronghold Members // 9 Hero’s Rewards
Format: Open Play, players play as many games against whomever they wish. Staff & volunteers will help new players, and facilitate games. Prerelease Pack includes 6 Throne of Eldraine Boosters, a die & a Promo.
Adult Mentors: The Knights of Blackwood is a program for kids ages 6-16, however anyone can participate in this event. If you are older than 16 years old, you will be a ‘mentor’ helping out the younger players with rules and being a good example of a good sport. Mentors will get all the same rewards as younger players, except the Pets.
Prizes: All participants get a booster pack, a Hero’s Reward, and a Knights of Blackwood pet. Everyone that plays a game will earn another Theros Beyond Death booster pack, and when you win your first match you earn another! Combine that with the free pack you get for joining in and every player gets 3 packs! Anyone that plays at least 3 matches will get another Hero’s Reward (and will get that third pack if they didn’t win any).

Tasty Sustenance: We will have some delicious snacks to keep you powered throughout the day!

Preorder Special:  Just like with the past number of sets when you preorder you’ll be able to pick up your booster box at the prerelease weekend, as well as a special Buy-a-Box card!  Check out our Preorder Special for all the details! You can even get the full Collectors Booster Boxes early this time through us!
