April Magic!

by Nate T on April 03, 2017

Magic is in the air in April, here at WoodForSheep! We are slinging spells throughout the month in anticipation of Amonkhet, the latest Magic The Gathering set.

Open House

Saturday, April 15, 2017 | 2PM to 6PM | Standard sitting fees apply

This event is for people who have never played Magic before, need a Magic refresher, or want to introduce a friend to the game! Show up, get a Welcome Deck, and play Magic against other newer players.

Prerelease

Saturday, April 22, 2017 | Starts at 12:30AM | Capacity: 16 players | $36 ($35 Flock) *Yes, you read that right

Sunday, April 23, 2017 | Starts at 7:30PM | Capacity: 16 players | $36 ($35 Flock)

Prereleases are your first chance to crack open packs and play with the newest cards in Magic.Everything you'll need to play should be provided as part of your entry fee - you simply show up and play!

You'll build a 40-card minimum deck using the contents of a themed Prerelease pack. This play format is called "Sealed Deck." After you build your deck, you'll be randomly paired with another player for a best-two-of-three match. Each round, you'll report who won and be paired up with another player.

Draft Weekend

Friday, April 28, 2017 | Starts at 8:30PM | $16 ($15 Flock)

Sunday, April 30, 2017 | Starts at 7:30PM | $16 ($15 Flock)

Draft the newest cards all weekend

Booster Draft is a fun way to play Magic where a group (usually six to eight players) opens packs, selecting the most exciting cards to immediately build decks with. Each player only needs three boosters to get started.

How does it work?

At the start of the draft, each player opens a pack and picks a single card. Then everyone passes the rest of their pack to the player on their left. Each player then picks a card from the pack they just received before passing again. This process continues until all the cards in those packs have been selected.

Then each player opens a second pack, this time passing the pack to their right.

After all those cards are drafted, a third pack is opened and passed to the left again.

Once all the packs have been drafted, each player builds their deck from the cards they have selected. You may add as many basic lands (Plains, Islands, Swamps, Mountains, and Forests) to your deck as you'd like. Each deck must have at least 40 cards.
