The second Magic Online Champions Showcase of the 2022 season is here, featuring eight skilled players battling for their share of $70,000 in cash prizes, Magic World Championship invitations, and the title of the 2022 Season 2 Showcase Champion.
What Are the Formats?
The Season 2 Showcase event leads off with a Magic Online Modern Cube Draft followed by a three-round Pioneer Constructed format event—both using Swiss pairings.

Otherwise, the winner of each event will square off in a single Best-of-Three playoff match in Pioneer Constructed to determine the Showcase Champion.
