We believe you should be able to play the formats you enjoy and compete for prizes that interest you at our Grand Prix events, and with that in mind, we’re continuing to offer the Prize Wall at our 2018 Grand Prix events! Win Prize Tix in events and redeem them for items like booster packs, single cards, and uncut sheets. As always, 10 Prize Tix can be redeemed for a booster pack of the most recent Standard-legal set, with other items available at different redemption rates.

We’re planning to offer a consistent Prize Wall experience for the year 2018. We’ll offer a wide variety of recent booster packs, single cards, and supplies along with uncut sheets, oversized cards, canvas prints, complete sets, and more!
