Love Your Local Game Store Promo Returns

The Love Your Local Game Store Promotion is returning! Starting July 1, you can hand out the foil retro-frame promo Sol Ring for purchases of Magic product over 50 USD. The new LYLGS promo is available globally beginning July 1, so share this new promo with your players to encourage them to visit and support your store with sales—and while they're there, invite them to sign up for events you're running this summer. Keep handing out promos while supplies last—the promotion only ends when you hand out the final promo of your allocated amount.

July 2022 Store Championships Promos

Speaking of promos, later this summer your players will have the chance to show their mettle and secure brag-worthy promos with the July 2022 Store Championship. The event runs July 9 to 17, and can be run using the following formats:

  • Draft

  • Sealed

  • Standard

  • Modern

  • Pioneer

  • Two-player Brawl

Store Championship uses Swiss rounds cutting to a top 8, and you'll have three different types of promos to hand out: the Participation Promo Flame Slash, the Top 8 Promo Archmage's Charm, and the First Place Promo Dark Confidant.

Double Masters 2022 – Product & Promo Preview

Make sure you have plenty of Draft events scheduled early in the season because drafting is even more exciting than usual with Double Masters 2022. Players will draft two cards instead of one with the first pack they open during a draft event.

If your store achieved WPN Premium before April 22, you'll be eligible to run an exclusive WPN Premium Preview Event from July 1–7.

You'll have a guaranteed allocation of Draft Boosters to purchase through your distributor meant for running events, plus you'll be able to purchase more at your distributor's discretion.

The event may be scheduled as Booster Draft or Sealed, and players will receive one copy of each promo per entry while supplies last: Bring to Light and Weathered Wayfarer.

For additional previews of the cards coming to Double Masters 2022, head over to the Magic website.

Warhammer 40,000 – Product & Promo Preview

Universes Beyond is coming to Magic to combine two of the most robust communities that visit your store: Magic: The Gathering and Warhammer 40,000. In this crossover of tabletop titans, players can collect a whole new kind of army to fight with—that may be led by one of the four face card Commanders arriving on the battlefield: Abaddon the Despoiler.

Commander decks are ready to play right out of the box, making this a perfect opportunity for Warhammer 40,000 fans to jump in and experience their favorite characters with the flair of Magic at their fingertips.

Your enfranchised Magic fans have plenty to look forward to: they can experience the grimdark world of Warhammer 40,000 with a suite of new art and cards. In fact, each deck has over 40 new cards to explore, and the cards feature both new and classic Warhammer 40,000 art.

The Warhammer 40,000 Commander Launch Party runs October 7-9, and for purchasing a Warhammer 40,000 Commander Deck for in-store play, players receive the exclusive promo Fabricate.

The Commander decks will come in both regular and collector's editions—the Collector's Edition is an all-foil version of the regular Commander deck and includes a special Universes Beyond laminate , Surge Foil. WPN stores will receive a limited allocation of Collector's Edition decks from their preferred distributor, with additional quantities available to purchase as usual. If you earn a WPN Premium designation before June 3, your store will receive a larger guaranteed allocation of Collector's Edition decks. Regular edition decks are available in English, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. Collector's Edition decks are available only in English.

Head over to the Magic site for further product preview details.
