Magic League: Ravnica Allegiance @ Bayshore, Greenfield & Mayfair
Feb 1 @ 6:30 pm

Join us for a five-week Magic League, beginning Friday, February 1.

Open three packs of Ravnica Allegiance, assemble your League deck, and play as many games as you want against opponents of your choice! You’ll have an opportunity to reinforce your deck every week, and you’ll get prizes just for completing games—win or lose.

How does it work?
When you enter the league, you’ll open three packs of the new set. From the contents of those boosters and basic lands provided by the store, you’ll then build a 30-card (minimum) deck.

From there, play single-game matches. Each player gets one free mulligan.

Play anyone during the course of the league and as many games as you like—there is no limit on total games. Just try not to play the same person twice in a row. League games may be played any time, but must be played at the Board Game Barrister location where you joined the league.

Track your games: We will have League Record sheets available, to be filled out by you and signed by a Barrister after every game played.

This league does not exclude you from playing in Friday Night Magic or other events. If you want to buy into the league and play some games between or after your matches, you’re more than welcome.

This league will continue through Friday, March 1.

Late entrants welcome!
Players in this league need not be present every league Friday in order to participate. If you miss the first week, you can enter in a later week. By the same token, if you miss any week after the first, you may resume your league play where you left off.

Need Reinforcements?
You may purchase one pack per week to add to your card pool and deck. Each new week begins on League Friday.
OR
Lose three games, and you can purchase another pack to add to your deck.

Prizes

  • Upon entering the league, you’ll receive three packs of Ravnica Allegiance and a *League Deck Box.
    • *Deck boxes are provided for some sets, but not for others.
  • Play 5+ games over the course of the league, win or lose, will receive a pack of Board Game Barrister art sleeves.

Additional Tournament Details

This Regional Championship is the first big test for competitive players on the road to Nationalsand beyond. All players, judges, and tournament organizers involved are held to the highest standards of conduct.

Players are assumed to be familiar with the game’s rules, as well as the latest FAQ and tournament rules, and should expect all rules to be strictly enforced. Specifics to note for our event:

  • Players are not required to reveal a die to their opponent until the matching card is in play during a game.
  • Players are required to sleeve their deck in opaque card sleeves. All sleeves within a single deck must be identical in size, color, texture, and condition. Players may sleeve their characters and battlefield, but they must use different sleeves from their deck. Players should bring a few spare sleeves for their deck in case a card sleeve breaks or becomes unusable during a tournament.
  • We are using a 5+5 tardy rule: If you have no opponent at 5 minutes past the start of the round, call a judge. We’ll search for your opponent, and if they can’t be found by 10 minutes past the start of the round, your opponent forfeits and you win.
  • The judges will perform random deck checks throughout the tournament. If you suspect your opponent is using an illegal deck or that their deck might not match their deck list, call a judge.

 

Additional Information

Please note that no outside food or beverage is allowed at the Greenfield store. All drinks must be in a screw top container. Cousin’s Subs sandwiches, beverages, and snacks will be available for purchase on-site during the tournament.

If you want to practice before Regionals, our Bayshore store hosts a regular weekly casual Destiny event on Wednesday nights:
