Scott at Merlyn's here with a little bit of information on upcoming events and the prizes for them!
This weekend is the Pre-Release for Dragon's Maze, and as always we are excited to offer you five shots at this awesome new set. As always we kick things off with the Midnight Prerelease on Friday Night, before continuing through the weekend with events at 11 AM and 5 PM on Saturday and 11 AM and 5 PM on Sunday. Each Pre-release is $22.99 if you drop in to the store to pre-pay or $25.99 on the day of the event, so be sure to come on by as soon as you can. Also, players will choose one of the ten guilds to ally themselves with, so sign up quickly to ensure you get the guild you want! Each player who plays in a Pre-release will recieve a Maze's End Promo card, as seen in the picture above.
We will be running the Implicit maze during the pre-releases as long as supplies last, so be sure to help your guild outrace the others in order to get your promo Plains and Guild button. The winning guild will recieve a Champion of the Maze achievement code card for use with your DCI account for each of its members, and every other guild to navigate the maze will get "Maze Runner" Achievement cards.
After the chaos and excitement that is a Pre-release, it's easy to overlook Release Day itself, May 3rd. For the first 30 people to pre-order a full box of Dragon's maze ($99 + tax), we will be giving out a "Render Silent" promotional card. For everyone else, Merlyns will run two tournaments. You will have the option to play the normal standard constructed FNM with Dragon's Maze cards legal, or you can play in our first draft of the new set. Both tournaments will start at 6 PM on May 3rd, just like normal FNMs.
On May 5th we will be running a Launch Party to give you another shot at Dragon's Maze sealed. The entry will be $22.99 as a pre-pay or $25.99 on the day of the event. This will also happen on our second day of Free Comic Book Day, so anyone who plays will be welcome to participate in the festivities and take their choice of two free comics from the Free Comic Book Day Selection.
Merlyn's will be running a League for Dragon's Maze as we have for the last two sets. All participants will be provided with a promo Bird Token. Additional prizes will be based on participation in the league.
Last but certainly not least is the Dragon's Maze Games Day Events on Saturday May 25th and Sunday May 26th. Both events will be standard constructed tournaments starting at 11 AM, and both will have excellent prizes. In addition to our normal credit prizes, each event will have a Full-Art Trostani's Summoner Promo for every participant. The Top 8 placing players for each tournament will recieve a Full-Art Melek, Izzet Paragon, and the first place player will also recieve one of these beautiful Playmats.
