Magic Online May Update

In his May Update article, Magic Online Executive Producer, Worth Wollpert, announced that Magic Online Championship Series (MOCS) and Pro Tour Qualifier (PTQ) events are not yet ready to return to Magic Online.

As a way to thank all of our players who've been earning Qualifier Points (QPs), we will be running a series of MOCS Appreciation Events beginning on Sunday, June 8 and running periodically through Sunday, July 20. These will be invitation-only events for players who have earned at least 35 QPs in a MOCS season. Players can expect to receive their invitation the Thursday preceding the event.

Vintage Masters Updates and Articles

How do you take twenty-plus years of Magic, pick out a set of cards that are fun to play with, have a diverse set of strategies, and work well together in multiple formats - all while using some of the most powerful cards in the game? In yesterday's article Lead Developer for Vintage Masters, Ian Duke, voices his thoughts on the matter. Ian introduces players to the team behind the set and talks about the strategy behind Vintage Masters.

In other Vintage Masters news, the rarities for the full set have been announced! Refer to Blake Rasmussen's article for all of the details.
