Playmat Information

Official Grand Prix Seattle Playmats

Grand Prix events always feature Ultra PRO playmats with beautiful Magic art, and Grand Prix Seattle is no exception! For this event, we have two playmats to coordinate with our two Grand Prix events: first, the Legacy playmat featuring Magali Villeneuve’s new art for Silvergill Adept, and second, the Standard playmat featuring Jason Rainville’s art for Rekindling Phoenix, a new card from Rivals of Ixalan. You can purchase these mats as individual add-ons, get them as a combo for a reduced price, or get them in conjunction with Mega Trial preregistration!

Events Schedule

Not interested in the main event? Can’t make the start time? Want to play other formats? No problem! ChannelFireball is working on an amazing Side Events Schedule so you can play Magic all weekend!

Turbo Town

Looking to play Constructed on your schedule? Don’t want to commit to a 3-round event? No problem – come on down to Turbo Town and battle!

Turbo Town is the place to be if you want to play a one-on-one constructed match. For just $5, you can sign up for whatever constructed format you have a deck for, whether that’s Standard, Modern, Legacy, Vintage, Pauper, Canadian Highlander, Artist Constructed, or something even wackier!

Once someone else comes along and signs up for the same format, you’ll be paired up for a match. The winner of the match will receive 30 Prize Tix. Don’t worry – you still get 10 Prize Tix if you lose.

Once the match ends, that’s it – you can go experience other parts of the Grand Prix if you want, but if you want to stay in Turbo Town and play a few more matches, we’ll be happy to help you find your next opponent!

Special Guests!

Grand Prix Seattle will feature a group of sponsored professional Magic players and personalities who will be on hand to enhance your GP experience! You can meet them at these events on Thursday and Friday. We’ll be adding to this list as we go, so keep your browser on target!

The Professor will be available both Thursday and Friday for Spellslinging and the Bounty Event! Prof is a well-known Pauper aficionado, so bring your commons and get ready to battle. You can check out his work on his YouTube channel, Tolarian Community College.

Kenji “NumotTheNummy” Egashira will be at GP Seattle for Spellslinging and the Bounty Event on Friday. Kenji is well known for his work on Grand Prix coverage, his appearance at the 2013 Community Cup, and of course, his Twitch stream!

Spellslinging

12-4 PM

Ever wanted to match wits with one of the best players in the world? Well, now you can! On Friday afternoon, our featured professional players will be accepting challengers. Bring a Constructed deck and get ready to battle – if you manage to win, you’ll receive an extra prize. No entry fee is required for Spellslinging; just get in the queue, and when your time comes, make sure to bring your A-game!

Any unique items will be offered along with uncut sheets, oversized cards, canvas prints, complete sets, and Grand Prix T-Shirts!
