DreamHack $10,000 Magic: The Gathering Battle

At all US DreamHack events this year, we have teamed up with Cascade Games to bring you a new way to play Magic: The Gathering. The DreamHack Magic: The Gathering Battle is a special weekend long tournament that will feature a $10,000 prize pool.

Format

Qualifier Events
Friday and Saturday will feature Qualifier Events which will be used to determine who advances to the finals on Sunday. 4 wins in a single Qualifier Event will automatically qualify you to compete on Sunday.  All other players will earn points based on their record.  The remaining seats on Sunday will go to those players with the highest point totals on our leader board, who are not already qualified. Qualifier Events are 4 Swiss rounds unless otherwise noted.

Main Event and Playoffs
On Sunday, the top 64 players will compete in 8 person draft pools. The winner of each pool will advance to the playoffs to determine who takes home the grand prize and title of DreamHack Magic: The Gathering Battle Champion!

All events will be using Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation booster packs, all weekend long, unless otherwise noted.
