Store Championship is a structured, in-store tournament program that follows many major Magic: The Gathering releases. It is an opportunity for your players to prove their mettle and earn commemorative promos. To allow your community to develop their decks and hone their skills, consider running additional Modern events leading up to Store Championship.
Scheduling: 1 event between August 5 – August 13; use the Store Championship scheduling template
Format: Modern, Sealed Deck, or Booster Draft
Rules Enforcement Level: Regular or Competitive
Pairing Method: Swiss
Store Championship events run as Booster Draft or Sealed must use Draft Boosters from the most recently released set, in this case The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth™.
A certified judge is not required, but if you’d like to hire one for your event you can find resources for that on the Judge Academy website.
You do not have to cap your event based on how many participation promos you receive; participation promos should be provided first come, first served in order of event registration.
As always, you are welcome to add additional prizing to the event at your discretion.
If your event does not launch or you have extra participation promos the surplus promo policy will apply.
Metrics will be reactivated with at least 6 months' notice. At this point in time, we do not have a current anticipated date for metrics reactivation. Until the end of the grace period, promo and product allocations will be based on live metrics or the Q1 2020 metric snapshot, whichever is higher.
As always, all Magic: The Gathering events reported through Wizards EventLink will count towards play metrics: Tickets, Engaged Players, and Activated Players.
