If you’re competing in this weekend’s big , we’ve got two tournaments this week that’ll help you get your decks ready and, hopefully, earn you some amazing prizes to take those decks to the next level along the way.

The first, at 6pm Tuesday, April 3rd, is a Legacy Tournament– 16 person max, $20 buy in, swiss with a cut to top for to determine prizes like Lions Eye Diamond and Mox Opal!

Then! At 6pm on on Wednesday, April 4th, we do it all again, this time in Standard with prizes like a playset of Misty Rainforests!


If, for any reason, you’re not competing in the Grand Prix, you’re always welcome to join us for any of our Saturday Morning Magic drafts every weekend at noon. This weekend will be our last Ixalan draft before we have one weekend of discounted Wild Style drafting on the 14th and the big Dominaria Prerelease on the 21st.

So come on up and check us out for all the best events, deals and draft beers in town. You’ll be glad you did!

With our longtime Tournament Organizer, Queen Margot, stepping down to, “Walk the earth. Like Kane. From Kung Fu,”…

…we’ll be making some changes to our magic program. Our official theme song for it, for example, will go from this…

… to this…

…as we welcome our NEW T.O., B-Boy Joe Ricci, to the stage.

Other than that, things’ll stay mostly the same. We’ll continue running our very own Saturday Morning Magic drafts every Saturday morning at noon (that’s what we call “morning” up here on The Hill) and will have special events for all the upcoming releases including a Modern Masters 25 draft on March 17 and a Dominaria Prerelease on April 21.

See you there!

Welcome to the Emerald City, my pretties

Yes, that’s right. It’s time for The Emerald City‘s very own Comic Con.
And while it’s technically true that this important cultural event actually happens at the Washington State Convention Center, everybody who’s anybody knows that the real action happens up here, a short walk away from the center proper at our very own .

And to prove it, we’ve got ECCC themed events all week long just to entice you up the road, starting on Wednesday night with our release party for Emerald City Comic Con’s official beer (yes, that’s actually a real thing!), Fremont Brewing’s Dark Heron!

Then, on Thursday, join those happy mutants, the , for a viewing of the latest episode of their favorite show in the whole world, Critical Role!

And on Friday, things just get bananae up in here, with special guests from all over the pop cultural spectrum like , Espionage Cosmetics & Outsider Comics coming in for our back to back and by our friends and .

Then on Saturday, we follow very special Comicon episodes of our regular Saturday Morning Magic & Gamers of Color events with Critter Crawl 3 – now in 3D!

And the ECCC madness just does not stop! Because on Sunday (…Sunday! Sunday!) we’ve got Special Guests and Judge Zedd running the worlds first (I can’t back that up. But it sure sounds good, doesn’t it?) Dungeon Crawl Classics Tournament! I can’t imagine how that works but apparently you can actually win stuff so come on down and get your swag on.

And then, after that, we just flip the script, and do it all again. Or something like it. Seriously, it’s crazy around here these days. As always you can learn more about these and all of our upcoming events on our very own Events Page. And if you’re any where in our little Emerald City and need to come find us, just follow the yellow brick road (we call it East Pine, you call it anything you want to).
