Game Day events are Standard-format tournaments.
What Does a "Standard Deck" Mean?
The Standard format uses only the newest sets the game has to offer. The current block, the block that was released the previous year, and the most recent core set are all legal to play in a Standard deck.
For more information on Standard, click here.
The following sets are Standard legal: Return to Ravnica™, Gatecrash™, Dragon's Maze™, Magic 2014™ Core Set , Theros™,Born of the Gods™, and Journey into Nyx™.
What Do I Get?
All participants receive an exclusive Squelching Leeches full-art promo card (while supplies last). The Top 8 players each receive an exclusive Dictate of Kruphix full-art foil promo card. The cards are awarded to the Top 8 players even if the tournament cuts only to the Top 4.
Additionally, the most heroic players will have an opportunity to earn the Hall of Triumph promo card (while supplies last). Contact the tournament organizer for more information.
In addition, the 1st-place winner of Journey into Nyx Game Day will receive an exclusive Playmat.
Defeat a God
Bring the Hero Cards you've earned while traveling the Hero's Path to help you triumph over the Defeat a God Challenge Deck at Journey into Nyx Game Day. This special deck is a special activity that you can challenge beginning with Game Day, between rounds, or at your convenience. It's not a part of the tournament, but you'll want to defeat Xenagos to earn the ninth and final Hero Card on the Hero's Path.
You can use up to three Hero Cards to help you Defeat a God. To learn more about the Hero's Path, visit MTGHerosPath.com.
