As I write this, the final round of our weekend of Battle for Zendikar prerelease events are wrapping up. What better time than to talk about our next big community event? We are hosting Star City Games Autumn State Championships in just a few weeks, and are very excited for the new shift in Standard. The brewers have been convening all weekend, theory-crafting and prophesying what is about to storm the scene. On our end we have been gathering some of the best judges that the state has to offer and figuring how to give you the best event possible.
Star City Games has a standard for event payouts based on attendance:
This list is pretty strong! We are going to be hosting the event in shop this time around, and we will need to put an attendance cap on things. Because of this, we wanted to give strong incentive for people to preregister for the events. For each threshold we reach in the preregistration pool one person will be selected at random to win the listed prize. With a nod to what the organizers of GP’s have been doing, here is our preregistration bonus:
|20||BFZ Fat Pack|
|50||BFZ Booster Box|
|75||Modern Masters 2015 Booster Pack|
|80||Modern Masters 2015 Booster Pack|
|85||Modern Masters 2015 Booster Pack|
|90||Modern Masters 2015 Booster Pack|
|100||Jace, the Mind Sculptor Limited Edition Silver Coin|
|105||Modern Masters 2013 Booster Pack|
|110||Modern Masters 2015 Booster Pack|
|115||Modern Masters 2015 Booster Pack|
|120||Modern Masters 2015 Booster Pack|
|125||Modern Masters 2013 Booster Pack|
|150||Jace, the Mind Sculptor Limited Edition Silver Coin|
|175||BFZ Booster Box|
|200||BFZ Booster Case|
Your head judge for Saturday will be Billy Gilmore and Maximilian Schroeder for Sunday. For those wishing to spend the night and play both events (and get entered in the prize drawing twice if preregistered) there are plenty of hotels in town with the Red Roof Inn (on E Texas Ave) and a Quality Inn (on N Providence Rd) in walking distance.
I am super excited, I hope you are too!
