End of Store Championship


Store Championship has concluded. In its place, we've launched a new rotating, quarterly, mid-season event: Magic Weekend. Details like format, kit contents, and so on, will be different each time (Ravnica Weekend for Guilds of Ravnica was the first of these; the one for Ravnica Allegiance will be the second. Read more here.)

If your kits have any damaged materials or you would like more tips on best practices for using these materials at your store, please contact Retail Support or your Regional Representative.

*Date of kit arrival may vary by region.
