Full Events Listings (For more details please see individual events)

 

FRIDAY 12 JANUARY 

Friday's Midnight Prerelease

The legendary city of Orazca has been found, but it will not be claimed without a fight. Now, you must outpace, outwit, and overpower your rivals as you vie for control of this ancient metropolis. Succeed, and you will wield the greatest power of the plane. 

The first opportunity to see the cards will be at Midnight on Friday, and Axion Now will be open all night! It'll be Friday Night Magic as usual, but with a lock-in from 11pm, and the first batch of Rivals cards will be ceremoniously opened when the clock strikes 12. From then on, players will receive themed Rivals of Ixalan Prerelease packs, build decks from them, and then play five rounds.  

It's a 5 round Sealed Deck format tournament. Players on a winning record win booster prizes (Ixalan and a few more for good measure!) 

You are welcome to bring your own food

The festivities will finish at about 5:30am on Saturday.

Arrive by 11pm please

A special event for 8 to 11 year olds to see the new set for the first time: featuring new Rivals of Ixalan decks AND prizes! 

Each player plays in a team of two (named The Two-Headed Giant) and will receive a preconstructed planeswalker deck to play with and take home. This is also a School Challenge - the winning team will see their photo displayed with previous winners at Axion Now's Amersham Hub.

Come with a school friend and play as a pair. Let us know your school, and the winning school will win the 'Tolarian Academy Award'.

The beauty of Two-Headed Giant is that you can help each other, so you can come with a friend who has more limited experience.

If you do well, you'll get extra booster packs as prizes! If you don't do well, no problem, there is a promo card for you.
