We're bringing in the new month with a new blog post!
First up, we'd like to make an announcement about a change in our prices.
Over the past year, the costs of goods, transportation, and manufacturing have increased significantly everyone across nearly every industry, that includes Wizards of the Coast. With prices increasing for them to produce Magic the Gathering, that means the cost of keeping it in stock is as well. We've done our best to keep the scope of the price increase as narrow as possible but in order to keep our shelves well stocked for your pleasure, we have to update our prices.
Here is a quick breakdown:
- Standard Draft Entry: $20 instead of $15
- Constructed Formats Entry: $10 instead of $6
- Commander League Entry: $7 instead of $5
- Converting prize packs to store credit: $4 per pack if used immediately or saved for later
Now to our event line up.
We're back in one of our favorite planes with the new set Dominaria United, visiting some familiar faces with a prerelease. We'll be hosting 5 events, entry for each is $35 per person with set booster packs as prize support! Dates are Friday @ 7pm, Saturday @ Noon and 5pm, Two-Headed Giant on Sunday @ Noon, and finally a regular sealed on Sunday @ 5pm.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Magic the Gathering, we'll be handing out special promos to people who preregister. For each event you preregister for, while supplies last, you will receive one (1) of three (3) promo cards, Serra Angel, Ball Lightning, and Fyndhorn Elves (German).
