Magic The Gathering $25 League!

Announcing the Free Lunch New Magic The Gathering Event, The $25 League! For those of you that don't know, the $25 league is a way for everyone to compete even if you don't have a lot of expensive cards. It is called the $25 league for two reasons, first the entry cost is $25 and second all decks (including land and sideboard) must be worth $25 or less.

We will be using the medium prices on TCG Player to value all cards so all decks must either be registered on their website or emailed to myself or Steve prior to entry. You can use multiple decks throughout the season but only one deck per night.

The league meets every Tuesday from 6pm to 9pm. The length of the season is dependent on the number of players but the initial estimate is that the season will be approximatly six weeks with potential one make up day on a Saturday if needed.

Registration will close on Sunday the 17th following booster draft. To register everyone needs to provide their entry fee and at least one deck prior to the deadline. If anyone has any questions please let me know.

Oliver
