The second Magic Online Champions Showcase of the 2023 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 2023 Season 2 Showcase Champion!
What Are the Formats?
The Season 2 Showcase event leads off with a Magic Online Vintage Cube Draft followed by a three-round Legacy Constructed format event—both using Swiss pairings. If the same player wins both events, that player is the Season 2 Showcase Champion. Otherwise, the winner of each event will square off in a single Best-of-Three playoff match in Legacy Constructed to determine the Showcase Champion.
