Prereleases are Sealed Deck format events, where players are given Prerelease Kits (Containing 4 Oath of the Gatewatch and 2 Battle for Zendikar booster packs) and time to construct a 40-card minimum deck.
Players who are uncomfortable building a Sealed Deck may participate in Open Dueling instead of the main tournament. Open Dueling players use an Intro Pack to experience the new set a week before it hits shelves.
Players who participate in the tournament also have a chance to win additional booster packs of the newest set—an exclusive opportunity to take home even more of the latest cards before they’re available to purchase in stores!
Prerelease events focus on fun and enjoying the upcoming Magic expansion, allowing players a chance to experience the newest cards in a fun and stress-free environment. That said, as Sealed Deck tournaments, they follow certain rules for deck construction and play.
Decks must be constructed with a minimum of 40 cards
Decks may only be built using cards opened in the Prerelease Packs assigned at the beginning of the event, and no outside cards may be added.
