Magic the Gathering’s Core 2019 Pre-Release Weekend

Pre-Release Weekend

Store Hours: Sunday: 11am-6pm • Monday - Friday: 10am-9pm • Saturday: 10am-6pm

How do Pre-Release Events work?
• For each event, players will receive a Core 2019 themed deck box that will contain the following:

• Six (6) Magic the Gathering Core 2019 Booster Packs
• One (1) randomized date-stamped premium promo card
• One (1) Deckbuilding advice insert
• A Themed Spindown Die/Life Counter
• The box itself can be used as a fully functional deck box!

• Using ONLY this product as well as any BASIC LANDS, players will build a 40-card minimum deck. This event will have continuous build, meaning that players can change their decks as they see fit though out the tournament, using any cards in their pool, as long as the deck is at least 40 cards.
