MTG Brawl Weekend

Every main set that Wizards releases brings us a fun and different special Magic Weekend event, and this time the focus is Brawl. Brawl is a Commander-like format where players use cards from Standard in a smaller 60 card deck. It’s a fun and new format, and with this set WotC released a series of Brawl Decks that sold out instantly!

Since the format is so new, and those decks sold out so quickly, we are going to be running the event a little bit different by merging Commander & Brawl in to one event – check out the details:

When: Saturday, October 26th, 12:00pm

Entry Fee: $10.00 -or- 3 Hero’s Rewards.  Stronghold Members receive a Hero’s Reward for participating.

Format: Our Brawl Weekend event will place players in multiple commander/Brawl games with the aim of completing their in-game Achievement Card.

Players may bring any legal Commander Deck or Brawl Deck, however to encourage folks to try out Brawl, anyone using a Brawl Deck gets to place up to three of their Legendary Creatures in to the commander zone, and all three count as having the ‘Partner’ keyword. Additionally the prizes they get are upgraded (see below)

Prizes: Any player that completes at least 5 out of 6 of the achievements on their card will get a Throne of Eldraine Promo Pack. But, if you are playing with a Brawl Deck your Promo Pack will be upgraded to a FOIL Throne of Eldraine Promo Pack!

Additionally players will get a Throne of Eldraine booster pack for each match they play in (up to a maximum of 2 per person).

So join us to celebrate Throne of Eldraine, and give Brawl a crack!

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 Throne of Eldraine 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! With the set being themed around food, let’s just say we’re going all out this time…

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!

MTG: Team Trios Modern

Black Knight Games is very excited to be hosting another Team Trios tournament for MTG!  Team Trios is a special format where teams of three players face off against other teams. This time rather than using different formats every player will be playing Modern!

Date: Saturday, September 7, 12:00pm start time (be there at 11:30am)

Entry Fee: $15.00 -or- 5 Hero’s Rewards Per Player
Stronghold Members Get: A Hero’s Reward for participating

Players play a best of 3 match, and the team that wins the most matches wins the round. Before the event teams assign each player either ‘A’, ‘B’, or ‘C’ and within matches A plays A, B plays B, and C plays C.

Unified Modern (With the exception of cards with the basic supertype or cards with text that specifies otherwise, no two decks on a team may contain the same card, based on its English card title. (For example, if one player is using Naturalize in a Team Constructed tournament, no other player on that team may use Naturalize in his or her deck.) No players may use cards that are banned in a particular format).

Because it’s an unusual format, and one that might cause some confusion we will have a judge on hand for the event, and decklists will be taken at the beginning of the event.

Prizes:  3 Booster Packs are added to the Prize Pool for each participant and is spread evenly to participants based on record, with team-mates each taking down the same prize.  Packs may be swapped for $5.00 in Store Credit.
