League Details!

Gameknight’s return to a 12-week Thursday night League starts April 14th, be prepared for some awesome games of Magic!

Every Thursday night for quite a few years now, GameKnight has run a Magic League. Usually running for 8-12 weeks, our Magic Leagues are ongoing week-to-week events where players start with a small pool of cards, forming their “league pool”. Each week, they can add additional packs of cards to their pool, growing it slowly over the course of the league. The specifics of each league have always been left to the League Organizer, but traditionally, each week also features a different format, be it a deckbuilding challenge (certain colours, costs, rarities, etc.), a new rule to the game (e.g. speed magic), or sometimes far more wonky styles of play (global planechase, anyone?).

The wonderful thing about our leagues is that they are great, level playing fields so that players both new and veteran can participate. Your personal collection at home is not used at all for our leagues; only the cards opened in your league pool can be used. And players are limited on how many packs they can add to their pool each week, meaning it’s not simply a matter of having the deepest pockets. Instead, our leagues focus on deckbuilding and play skills.

Our leagues are very open to new players either looking to get into or increase their skills in magic! Our leagues offer a fun and inviting format full of friendly players willing to offer help and guidance to new players with everything from understanding the rules to helping you with deck ideas and strategies.

Now that you’ve got an idea of what our Magic Leagues can offer you, check out our current league below!

Our Organizer : Jordan Anseeuw

Each night consists of 3 rounds with each round going a full 3 games. Points are awarded and tracked over the course of the league to determine standings. Points are awarded as such; 3 points per game win, 2 points for each draw, 1 point for a loss.

Not everyone can commit to a full 12 weeks therefore each player’s 2 worst nights, even if you didn’t show up, are removed from the final standings. And even after that you are still eligible to receive fabulous prizing if you can make it to at least 8 of the 12 weeks!

Here’s a breakdown of what each fun and wacky week entails;

Week 1  – Sealed Musical Chairs

We start the night with each player building a 40-card deck using 6 packs. Your choices for your opening six packs are; 6 Shadows Over Innistrand or 4 Oath 2 BFZ or 6 Origins or Any combination of six packs from Shadows, Oath, BFZ, Origins, Dragons of Tarkir. At the end of the night 2 standard packs may be added to your pool.

Week 2  – 5 Color Good Stuff

For this night each player will purchase any 3 different modern legal packs from the store and play a league special Mini Master format.

ROUND 2 –  After the first round you will open a second pack and use those plus your first pack to build your own pack, 1 rare – 3 uncommons – 11 commons – and any amount of land you want,(foils cannot replace a common slot) again you will receive a feladore cane-like emblem.
