Oath of the Gatewatch Pre-release Weekend

Hello fellow planeswalkers! Friendly Fire is proud to announce that we will be hosting 4 amazing pre-release events, celebrating the newest Magic: the Gathering set, Oath of the Gatewatch, during the weekend of January 16th.


Friendly Fire will be hosting a Midnight pre-release Single Player Sealed event for Magic’s next big set, Oath of the Gatewatch. This event is great for new players and veteran players alike.

Just moments before Midnight players will be handed their Oath of the Gatewatch pre-release kits. These kits consist of 6 15-card booster packs, 4 of which will be the new Oath of the Gatewatch, and 2 will be Battle for Zendikar, 1 foil promotional rare or mythic rare card, exclusive to this event, 1 card board deck box, and 1 20-sided life counter die.

Players will open their kits exactly at midnight and will be given 50 minutes to construct a 40-card minimum deck with the contents of their kit and basic lands provided by Friendly Fire. Extra time may be granted if needed.

Once all players have their deck constructed they will be randomly matched against eachother for the first round of play, and then only against players with similar match win records. There are 4 rounds in total, players may drop from the event at any time and collect what winnings they have earned.
