Mirrodin Besieged Game Day March 5, 7 PM

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Game Days are the first opportunity for you to play Standard on a global scale with the newest cards. They immerse you in the storyline of the new set, and give you the opportunity to win preview cards from the next Magic set, Mirrodin Pure or New Phyrexia!

What Happens There?

Game Days are Standard format. The tournament will be Swiss-style, with the top 8 players after the Swiss rounds advancing to the single-elimination finals. In the case of an event with 16 players or less, only the top 4 will advance. Where necessary, the standings after the Swiss rounds will be used to determine final order in the standings.

In the case of an event with exactly 8 players, there will be three Swiss rounds with no single-elimination cut.

What Do I Get?

All participants receive an exclusive Treasure Mage promo card (while supplies last). The Top 8 payers each receive a full-art Black Sun’s Zenith promo card. The cards are awarded to the Top 8 even if the tournament cuts to the Top 4.

The Top 2 finishers with Mirran-affiliated decks receive a Pristine Talisman preview card from Mirrodin Pure. The Top 2 finishers with Phyrexia-affiliated decks receive a Suture Priest preview card from New Phyrexia! This is in addition to any Top 8 prize cards you might win for their overall event finish.

Selected Top 8 decks will be featured on magicthegathering.com.

What Does an “Affliated Deck” Mean?

Cards in Scars of Mirrodin and Mirrodin Besieged are watermarked with either a Mirran or Phyrexian symbol to represent the card’s affiliation. You can build your Game Day deck to be affiliated with one of the two sides; this makes you eligible to win the Mirrodin Pure or New Phyrexia preview cards. (Having an affiliated deck is not required for Game Day; you can play any Standard-legal deck you choose.)

An affiliated deck must have at least ten watermarked cards from its affiliated faction in its main deck, and no watermarked cards from the opposing faction in its main deck or sideboard. The deck must still be Standard-legal. If you are using an earlier printing of a Scars of Mirrodin card (for example, a Fifth Dawn version of Trinket Mage), that card is considered part of the appropriate faction even though it does not have a watermark printed on the card.
