Grand Prix Sydney

We’re headed to Australia for the first time in 2018, so join us in Sydney for a Team Unified Modern Grand Prix! Teams of three players will compete in the main event with Modern decks that share no cards other than basic lands, so deck diversity and innovation will be the themes. Space in the main event is limited, so sign up today!

Special Guests!

Grand Prix Sydney 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 the following events on Friday:

Spellslinging

(Time TBD)

Ever wanted to match wits with one of the best players in the world? Well, now you can! On Friday afternoon, our featured personalities 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!

Bounty Event

(Time TBD)

On Friday evening, we’ll be hosting the Bounty Event, a three-round Sealed Deck Event where you can win Prize Tix and foil promo cards based on your record. Some of our personalities will be entering the event as well, so we’ve put a bounty out on them! If you get paired against one of them and you win the match, you’ll receive extra Prize Tix to commemorate your victory.

We love Magic art – old and new – and we’ve invited some of Magic’s best artists to set up booths at Grand Prix Sydney!

Vendors

Vendors from around the world will be available on site to fulfill your every Magic: the Gathering need!

Prize Wall

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 other items that you’ve come to know and love along with some special items unique to certain events.

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