Shuffle and Cut will be hosting an MTG Sealed League beginning next Thursday, February 2nd, 2017!
You begin the league with any combination of 6 Kaladesh and Aether Revolt booster packs. Then you build a 40 card deck from your card pool, just like a normal sealed event. Each Thursday after that, for 3 weeks, you add 2 packs of Kaladesh and/or Aether Revolt to your sealed pool. Your deck can end up quite powerful, but still feel like it belongs to a limited format, which is an interesting dynamic that is not explored very often in the MTG world.
Each Thursday, you play against any 3 other league participants, accruing points for participation, matches played, matches won, as well as small bonuses for various flavor-based accomplishments.
For every person who enters the league, there will be 2 booster packs added to the prize pool. For every week after, 2 more booster packs will be added to the prize pool for each player who continues to play. If you play all 4 weeks, you will receive some amount of prizing, regardless of overall performance. Otherwise, payout will be distributed based on standings after 4 weeks.
The prizing quickly adds up. For instance, a mere 8 players, playing on all 4 league nights, creates a 64 booster pack prize pool!
