Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate
Thursday June 9th
Participants will each receive a Baldur's Gate PreRelease Kit upon entry.
How Draft Commander works:
Participants will draft from the packs provided in their prerelease kits. Each player will take 2 cards from their draft hand before passing it to the next person. Once all three booster packs have been fully drafted, the host of the prerelease event (Blue Highway Games!) will provide the lands needed to the players. Players will then build 60 card commander decks from their drafted cards & the provided land cards. All other normal commander rules will apply.
THIS EVENT REPLACES THE REGULAR DRAFT NIGHT FOR 6/9
THURSDAY NIGHT MAGIC!
Every Thursday Night
Friendly Commander & Draft on Altering Weeks!

Bring Your Own 100 Card Deck!

(The multiplayer format & duel format have varying rules/set up)
Deck size: 100 cards (99 cards and 1 commander card).
The game duration is roughly about 20 minutes per player.
"The Commander format is all about picking your hero and building a deck around them. In this casual, multiplayer format, you choose a legendary creature to serve as your commander and build the rest of your deck around their color identity and unique abilities. Players are only allowed one of each card in their deck, with the exception of basic lands, but they can use cards from throughout Magic's history."

Build Your Own Deck through Drafting!
2-8 players per table for the draft.
Each player receives 3 booster packs to contribute to the draft.
Following the 3 draft rounds, players use their deck to play 1 v 1 games at the table.
Deck Size after the draft: minimum of 40 cards.
Each game duration is about 20 minutes.
"How to draft: First, players sit around a table in a semi-circle. Each player then opens a booster pack and picks a single card without showing the other players.
Each player then passes the remaining cards to the left, and continues drafting from the new cards they get from the player on their right. This continues until all of the cards in those packs have been distributed (drafted). Then each player opens a second pack, but this time, pass the pack to the right. After all those cards are drafted, you do the same with the third pack, passing to the left again. At the end, each player will have about 45 cards (along with any number of basic lands) which they can use to build a 40 card deck."
