The new Rivals for Ixalan set is coming out soon, and with it comes the prerelease! What is a prerelease you might ask? It's a fun casual competetive event where you get the opportunity to build a deck, pit it against other Magic enthusiasts, and possibly win some prizes! You may have questions about what to expect and what you get, you can find out more at the Wizards of the Coast site https://magic.wizards.com/en/event-types/prerelease
Interested in what cards you'll have to play with? See the new cards at https://magic.wizards.com/en/products/rivals-ixalan/cards
Finally, here are some tips for building a prerelease deck. https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/how-play-limited/five-tips-advanced-sealed-deck-building-2016-04-12 and a 10 lesson course about building a deck https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/how-build-your-sealed-deck-10-lessons-2006-06-06.
If you decide to participate at Pandora's, each round you get a chance to win credit in store (enough to buy a booster pack, but you can use it toward anything you'd like after the event is over.) Once you build your deck, you will play in four rounds. Each round you will be matched with someone and you'll play three games. You'll have 50 min to play all three games, so you'll want to read up and be familiar with the cards beforehand so you don't have to spend too much time reading the cards while you play. Also, the top four of the day will get more prizes!
Hope to see you there!
