Exclusive Guilds of Ravnica Preview Drowned Secrets
First up, what in fact is a Magic Open House? Well, it’s an event usually one week before a pre-release, dating this video, one week before Guilds of Ravnica pre-release, September 22nd and September 23rd. If you ever want to know when a Magic Open House is happening, make sure to check the Wizards of the Coast website for scheduling information. A Magic Open House is a free, casual event that happens only at your Local Game Store. The event is designed to help new and returning players become familiar with the game in a fail-free learning environment. This is one of the best ways to understand how to play Magic itself, as well as get familiar with the card archetypes and updated rules if you’re picking up Magic after being off for several years. One of my personal favorites about the event is how the event is not competitive in any way, and is geared towards only helping those who are interested in learning. There are no sharks here. Just players who want to help.
Every player who attends a Magic open house receives one absolutely free, mono-colored 30 card welcome deck. Not unlike the decks that are now thrown in some products on store shelves for $10. The decks are built with beginners in mind, giving the players a feel for how each color works, and how they interact with other colors. One of the cooler things about the welcome decks is how they can be combined to show how two colors interact with each other, and hey, now you have a full 60 card standard deck. Nice.
Another great thing for attending the Magic Open house is a sweet Full-art promo. This one specifically for this sets open house promo. Boris Challenger. A card that has a new mechanic from Guilds of Ravnica, and some beautiful alternate art. While the card itself isn’t very powerful in regards to the set as a whole, it’s still awesome to see that we have a fancy new promo for attending a Magic Open House. This is given out to all that attend. Meaning if you’re a grizzled veteran and you’re just wanting to be there to support newer players and help teach, you’re given a card for helping out, and that’s awesome. Keep in mind, this event is all about the new and returning player, veterans are of course invited and encouraged to attend, but don’t expect to bust out your tier 1 Standard deck against 30-card welcome decks. This is a time for education and understanding.
You’ll also receive a scorecard to keep track of your win loss rate while also at the event. This is information used to help you create a DCI number for your journey in Magic the Gathering as you can keep track of your planeswalker points and when and were you attend at any local game store across the country. Your dci number is special to you, make sure not to lose it.
