Magic: The Gathering tournaments at our DC location, including this week's Pauper, and our Store Championship – plus, a reminder about the Regional Championship Qualifier on May 21st.
It’s just another Magic Monday!
May is here, which means we're creeping closer and closer to two of our premier events: our Store Championship on May 14th and our Regional Championship Qualifier on May 21st. Both events are March of the Machine sealed, and you can sign up for those events, as well as all our other events, at https://www.labyrinthdc.com/events/calendar/.
But before we get to our exciting sealed events, we have our regular events this week. Tuesday is our Casual Commander event, which requires no registration and starts at 6:00pm. And, this Friday, we have a March of the Machine draft, as well as the return of Pauper!
This week’s featured single (shown above) is a foil copy of Hypnox, from Torment. For 11 mana, you get a flying 8/8 that exiles an opponent’s hand, but only if you cast it from your hand. This card is only legal in Vintage, Legacy, and Commander, but does not see any appreciable play in any of those formats. In other words, it’s a pure collector’s card. Foil cards have gone through several evolutions in Magic’s history, and foil cards from Torment represent some of the earliest iterations of premium treatments.
