The Events!

1. Learn to Play Events:

Never played Sorcery before? No problem! We've got you covered with our Learn to Play events. Here, you can dive into the game with the guidance of experienced players and learn the mechanics, strategies, and nuances that make Sorcery a truly captivating experience. Decks will be provided for these events, so all you need to bring is your excitement and eagerness to learn! Even better, after learning to play Sorcery - you get to keep your deck!

2. Booster Draft Events:

Get ready for an adrenaline-pumping experience as you participate in our Booster Draft events! Put your deck-building skills to the test as you draft cards from booster packs to construct a deck on the spot. We’ll draft 3 boosters, then play 3 rounds. Booster packs will be provided, so just bring your A-game and some sleeves (in case you draft any foils)! There will be additional prizes for game wins and you get to keep all the cards you draft. Please bring Ordinary sites and a Sorcerer avatar, but we'll have extras on hand for anyone who needs them.

3. Tournament - Constructed Play:

For those looking to showcase their meticulously crafted decks, our first Sorcery: Contested Realm Championship is the place to be. Bring a tournament-legal Sorcery deck (40+ spells, 20+ sites, 1 avatar) and play in 6 rounds of Swiss, no elimination battle over the realm. There are prizes for all participants and the winner will receive Elvira Shakirova’s Mix Ignis! The battles will be fierce, and the rewards will be extraordinary. So, make sure to bring your best deck, and let the epic duels begin!
