Draft Weekend: Ixalan

As the buzz around the previous set's draft environment reaches its floor, Draft Weekend renews the excitement as players get to dive into fresh content.

Most stores meet that demand by running a combination of scheduled drafts and drafts on-demand: as soon as you've got eight players, sit down and get started (note: eight players is optimal, but you may run casual drafts with fewer than that).

Ixalan Prerelease Party Test

We're doing a trial run of an alternative structure for IxalanPrerelease, and we want input from WPN members in your region.

Participating stores will get a chance to influence the future of Prerelease, plus receive an increased allocation to run the events.

This trial run is only available to WPN members in selected regions.

Here's how it works:

To participate in the trial run, follow the steps below:

Magic Open House: Ixalan

At Open House, new players get a Welcome Deck tutorial and a showcase of both the game and its social benefits in an open-play environment.

Introduce new players to the game with learn-to-play sessions, and invite them to meet your community with a relaxed Standard event.

Standard Showdown: Ixalan

For you as a retailer, Standard Showdown sustains the Magic ecosystem and keeps attendance up until the event cycle recurs.

For the player, it's a weekly opportunity to hone, evaluate, and experiment with their deck and adapt it to the metagame, both within your store community and Magic as a whole.

Reward that innovation. Standard Showdown is where the event path bends toward competitive: winning ought to matter, so focus rewards on the top performers.
