Hundreds of Magic: the Gathering players will be converging this weekend in Philadelphia, PA for Magic Weekend Philadelphia.
You don’t need an invitation to get in. Showing up to this open event will net you a free alternate art Ajani Goldmane (while supplies last), and there will be numerous side events that are also open to the general public.
Magic Weekend Philadelphia marks the first time that the new Modern format will be used in a high level event.
You’ll have the chance to play against Magic: the Gathering R&D Director Aaron Forsythe in a spellslinging challenge and Magic artists Eric Deschamps and Steve Belladin will also be in attendance to sell prints and sign cards.
Wizards of the Coast will be revealing several exclusive preview cards from Magic: the Gathering‘s upcoming expert expansion set Innistrad. Recent Innistrad spoiler cards include Fiend Hunter, Kruin Outlaw, Liliana of the Veil, Reaper from the Abyss, Hinterland Harbor, Moonmist, and Diregaf Ghoul.
