Magic: the Gathering

MTG LogoFirst published in 1993 by Wizards of the Coast, Magic was the first trading card game produced and it continues to thrive, with approximately twelve million players and still growing every year. The game has a very active community in Winnipeg, and there are ample opportunities to play the game in an organized environment, be it entry level tournaments, special preview events, or competitive tournaments.

GameKnight Games holds a number of organized play events for Magic every week. Check out what we’re holding below!

MTG Weekly Deal May 22 - 28

It's that time of week again! I hope your opponent is ready to lose their mana base, because boy is Fulminator Mage good at keeping those multi-colour decks off of their mana! Historically played in Living End Modern decks and now showing up in a variety of Death's Shadow builds in addition to a multitude of midrange decks, Fulminator Mage is a sweet card in a lot of strategies. Pick up your playset this week at only $33 each!

Magic Amonkhet Celebration

This weekend, GameKnight celebrates the most recent Magic set, Amonkhet, by hosting a special free Mini-Master event. The rules are simple.

Come down to the store any time on Saturday or Sunday with a valid DCI number (the player tracking number used for Magic: the Gathering) to claim a completely free booster pack of Amonkhet. Then, grab some basic land, make a mini deck (that's why it's Mini Masters!) and fire off some games with other players!

This event will be running all weekend long alongside our Amonkhet Game Days, and players are encouraged to play in both events. As long as you register your DCI number for the Amonkhet Celebration, you'll get a free booster. Simple!

While supplies last. Limit one per customer.

Game on!
