Magic PPTQ for Pro Tour 25th Anniversary

The format for Pro Tour 25th Anniversary in Minneapolis, Minnesota is Team Trios Constructed, and RPTQs are Team Unified Standard. The winner of a PPTQ may select two players to participate in the RPTQ with them as a team. The two players selected by the winner do not need to win a PPTQ themselves. See more details here.

Preliminary Pro Tour Qualifiers (PPTQs) begin a player's climb from in-store play to the peak of competitive Magic at the Pro Tour.

The winner of the PPTQ earns an invite to a Regional PTQ. Top finishers at the Regional PTQ earn a berth on the Pro Tour.

Because of that high level of competition, event efficiency is more important than ever. See this page for a list of crucial best practices.
