MTG: Ikoria Preorder Special

The next set of MTG, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths is coming!  This set focuses on an untamed land full of dangerous monsters. While this release will be different because of the realities of COVID-19, you can still get your hands on this amazing set AND support your local game store. Here are some great reasons you might want to jump on board our pre-order special:

Simultaneous Release:  While Ikoria has been pushed back one nice change is that on the prerelease/release date ALL products will be available. There are however some major incentives to grab yourself a booster box specifically.

#1: Ikoria Exclusive Buy-a-Box Card:  You will get a special Standard-Legal buy-a-box promo card which can not be found in normal boosters.  The card is a special ‘Godzilla, King of the Monsters’ card (which is an alt-version of Zilortha, Strength Incarnate). Additionally Ikoria, Lair of Behemoths booster boxes include a Box Topper Pack! This is the first time since Ultimate Masters that a set has included one.

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!

When: We have eight sealed deck events! There will be five regular sealed and two ‘Two-Headed Giant’ Sealed Theros Beyond Death Prerelease events over the weekend, as well as a Youth event on the Sunday. Let’s just say you’ve got options!

Sealed Deck & Two-Headed Giant Sealed Deck

Entry Fee: $45.00 // $40.00 for Stronghold Members // 9 Hero’s Rewards

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!

These will be limited to the first batch of people who order or buy a box of Theros Beyond Death from Black Knight Games.

Due to a packing error the FOIL Nyx lands in the packs aren’t actually foil. But don’t worry, they’re shipping the foil ones separately to us, so you will be given an IOU for a Foil land (and you get to keep the non-foil too!).

Theros: Beyond Death Collector Booster:

In addition to the Buy-a-Box cards anyone that preorders a Theros Beyond Death booster box will get a Collector Booster Pack! These packs will be in extreme demand, and are very valuable because they are just full of cool promos and rares. And it’s an extra throw in! We can’t give these to you at the Early-Bird time – so like the foil lands mentioned above they will be redeemed with the IOU – but don’t worry, they’re guaranteed 😉

Collector Booster Box Preorder Price: $374.99

Hero’s Rewards: When you pre-order before pre-release weekend you will also get 2 Hero’s Rewards!

You’ll get not only a random FOIL Nyx land when you buy a box, but also a non-foil one thanks to WotC’s printing error!
