The first Magic Online Champions Showcase of 2021 is coming soon, featuring eight players battling for their share of $70,000 and the title of the 2021 Season 1 Showcase Champion.
What Are the Formats?
The Season 1 Showcase event leads off with a Modern Horizons 2 Draft followed by a three-round Modern Constructed format event—both using Swiss pairings.
