League of Extraordinary Planeswalkers 12pm

MTG Sunday Draft League is back for another season!

Each year Heroes’ Beacon has a league with a continuous draft through the season when there is ongoing deck construction each session. 

With the exception of the first session where 6 packs will be drafted and a session in the middle (to be determined based on release date) with a second set being added to the mix, each week will see 1 pack of the current set being drafted into the pool to be built upon.

Cost: 
1st session Guilds of Ravnica (6 packs) – $30
Middle session to add new set (Ravnica Allegiance) – $15
All other sessions – Standard retail price on 1 booster pack of the most recent set.

If any sessions are missed, a player has the option of purchasing an appropriate amount of boosters to have the same amount as other league members.

At the end of the season, there will be prizes handed out based on placing as well as for sportsmanship, mentor-ship and random fun.

This is a league where, we do record win/loss records, but the primary focus is to have fun and meet other Magic players in a casual environment. Our more experienced players are always willing to help newer players with tips and tricks to improve the game.
