MTG Double Shot: Pioneer Weekend & Pioneer Preliminary

February is a very busy schedule for MTG at Black Knight Games, which is why we are having THREE Double Shot weekends, one for each of the three constructed formats. On FEB 22 we will be hosting a pair of Pioneer Events: a WPNQ Preliminary, and our Pioneer Weekend event:


Every set brings a special Magic Weekend event, and with Theros Beyond Death’s release we are given Pioneer Weekend – a special event in the newest format that can earn you some promo prize packs!

When: Saturday, February 22nd, 11:00am

Format: Pioneer, Swiss (4 Rounds), No Cut

Entry Fee: $10.00 (Stronghold Members get a Hero’s Reward) – Save $5 on the entry of the event later today if you play in both!

Prizes: 1.5 Booster Packs will be added to the prize pool per participant, anyone with a record of 3-1 or above will get a cut of the prize packs. Additionally for every victory you earn you will get a Ballot. Using these ballots we will also be giving away several promo packs!


In order to earn a coveted invite to the Player’s Tour there are a couple of paths one might take, but only one goes through your friendly local game stores: the WPN Qualifier (Or WPNQ), and Black Knight Games is lucky enough to be one of the only shops in Ontario able to host one!

This time we will be hosting ours as an Invitational event, with four Preliminaries leading up to it – like this one – where the Top 8 players will earn their spots at our WPNQ Final!

When: Saturday, February 22nd, 3:00pm

Format: Pioneer, Swiss (3-5 Rounds), No Cut, REL Competitive.

Entry Fee: $15.00 (Stronghold Members get a Hero’s Reward) – Save $5 if you participated in the Worlds Viewing Party earlier in the day.

Prizes: The Top 8 players will each earn an invite to the WPNQ Final on March 7th. At this free event they will get a FOIL promo Cryptic Command, as well as a crack at some additional amazing prizes.

So, while most of the prize pool is put towards the big prize pool at the WPNQ Final, we will be adding at least 1 booster pack to the prize pool for each participant. So the top players will still get some prizes on this day.
