Legacy and Vintage enthusiasts, mark your calendars! In-person Eternal Weekend events are returning to Asia and North America, and Magic Online will be hosting an Eternal Weekend event digitally for those who cannot attend in person!
Eternal Weekend is, well, what the name suggests: a weekend full of Eternal play. Eternal Weekend events play host to two championship tournaments:
- The Legacy Championship
- The Vintage Championship
Eternal Weekend has, for years, carried on its tradition of providing winners with a unique prize: an original painting of an iconic card from either Legacy or Vintage awarded to the champion of each format's respective tournament. That painting is included in an oversized Magic: The Gathering card frame, providing the winner with both the painting and special frame to go along with it. The paintings are unique to each respective tournament, meaning no one Legacy Championship or Vintage Championship will feature the same painting, even if cards are revisited in subsequent years.
This year, however, prizes will be expanded to include all Top 8 competitors with coveted promos featuring cards iconic to the formats.
The Top 8 players for each Legacy Championship this year, regardless of location, will receive a special non-foil Ponder with the retro frame treatment and artwork from Julie Dillon.
The Top 8 players from each Vintage Championship this year, regardless of location, will receive a special non-foil Gush with the retro frame treatment and artwork from Sam White.

A virtual version of Eternal Weekend will take place for those who cannot attend the other events in person.

These events will be open to join starting Wednesday, December 7, at 10 a.m. PT, and each will have a capacity limit of 672 players.
Each event will have entry options of 20 Event Tickets or 200 Play Points. Please note that Eternal Weekend in 2022 is not an All-Access event, and players will be required to submit a deck using cards that are in their collection.
The Legacy Championship will take place on Saturday, December 10. The winner of the Legacy Championship on Magic Online will receive The Tabernacle at Pendrall Vale trophy with artwork from Milivoj Ćeran.
The Vintage Championship will take place on Sunday, December 11. The winner of the Vintage Championship will receive the Ancestral Recall trophy with artwork from Volkan Baga.
