Our Commander League runs every Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm over the course of usually around two months. This next league is starting on April 25th, 2017 and will run for eight weeks. Read on for details!
Entry and Prizing
Entry is $6 per night, and each player will receive a prize voucher good for either a Standard-format booster pack or $5.00 in singles credit as part of that entry. The rest of the entry fee goes into a prize pool for final prizing at the end of the league. Prizing for this league will be distributed to 3 lucky players, for this league there are no standings but there are achievements.
Format: Commander Assassin
Each player will receive one entry into prizing for each night they participate.
At the start of each night you will be given, in secret, a target player as well as 3 objectives. You will receive bonus entries if you are able to eliminate your target and/or complete your achievements.
