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 Battle tournament is a special weekend long tournament that will feature a $10,000 prize pool.

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 scheduled event will automatically qualify you to compete on Sunday. The remaining seats on Sunday will go to those players with the highest point totals on our leader board who are not already qualified. Scheduled events are 4 Swiss rounds unless otherwise noted.

On Sunday, the top 64 players will compete in 8 person draft pools. The winner of each pool will qualify to compete in the finals to determine who takes home the grand prize and title of DreamHack Magic Battle Champion!

In addition to the main Magic Battle tournament, we will be hosting a variety of side events and formats, ranging from Standard to 2 Headed Giant Sealed, throughout the weekend. There will be something for everyone who wants to participate and see how they stack up!

Or, as always, simply play in the side events without having to spend your entire weekend in the grind.
