Prereleases provide you with the earliest possible opportunity to play
with the newest cards in Magic. Prereleases are enjoyable casual events
that encourage fun over competition. You can plan to play all day in
multiple events your store runs, or drop by for a single event.
Prereleases are Sealed Deck format events, where players are given
Prerelease Packs and time to construct a 40-card minimum deck.
Players who are uncomfortable building a Sealed Deck may participate in
Open Dueling instead of the main tournament. Open Dueling players use an
Intro Pack to experience the new set a week before it hits shelves.
