Draft Weekend: Unstable

Celebrate the release of the highly-anticipated silver-bordered set, Unstable with a Draft Weekend at your store and reward participants with a foil promo card.

Run 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).

Unstable explores new areas of Magic game design and continues the tradition of bending the conventional rules of the game in a fun and whimsical way.

Silver-bordered cards can do interesting and unique things that regular black-bordered cards don't typically get to do, all in the name of fun, and the set's creative elements reflect that spirit.

Similar to previous un-sets, Unstable will be best experienced in limited formats like Sealed Deck or Booster Draft, making Draft Weekend a great opportunity to move product and provide an ideal experience for your players.
