Friday Night Magic (FNM) starts at 6:30PM.

This Pauper format event is available on the final Friday of every month!

In this format, all cards must have been printed at common rarity in a Magic Online set or product. Common promo cards are only legal if the card meets that qualification.

If a common version of a particular card was ever released on Magic Online, any version of that card is legal in this format.

Four Pack-per-Win Rounds
During the event, you will be paired against opponents for four 50-minute rounds. For each round you win, you will receive a booster pack of your choice at the event’s conclusion!

More about the Pauper Format & Card Legality

  • All cards must have been printed at common rarity in a Magic Online set or product

  • Up to 15 cards in your sideboard, if used
  • No more than 4 of any individual card in the main deck and sideboard combined (with the exception of basic lands)

Check the short ban list of cards that are not legal to play in this Pauper event.

Because not all cards on Magic Online have been printed with the same range of rarities as those in paper Magic, some cards that have Common printings in paper Magic will also not be legal in this event. Some noteworthy examples include:
