2021 Magic Online Champions Showcase Season 1 Viewers Guide

June 22, 2021
Wizards of the Coast

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. If the same player wins both events, that player is the Season 1 Showcase Champion. Otherwise, the winner of each event will square off in a single Best-of-Three playoff match in Modern Constructed to determine the Showcase Champion.

How Much Money Is on the Line?

The 2021 Magic Online Champions Showcase Season 1 features a $70,000 prize pool. Here's how it breaks down:

Place Prize
1 $ 20,000
2 $ 15,000
3 $ 7,500
4 $ 7,500
5 $ 5,000
6 $ 5,000
7 $ 5,000
8 $ 5,000
TOTAL $ 70,000

Additionally, the winner of the Champions Showcase will receive an invitation to a future Championship event to be played on MTG Arena.
