Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has released their weekly article detailing the updates and new events coming soon to Magic Online.

Eternal Weekend

Despite Eternal Weekend events returning to tabletop for North America and Asia, European events will be held on MTGO. All accounts, not just EU, are allowed to play in these events and “players will need to have the cards in their Collection to participate (no All-Access for these events).”

The Legacy event will be held Saturday, December 10 at 1 AM PT (9:00 UTC) and the Vintage event is Sunday, December 11 at 1 AM PT (9:00 UTC). The entry options are 20 Event Tickets or 200 Play Points and the winner will take home a “life-size art trophy” and physical promo cards.

Supreme Pioneer Chaos Draft League

Beginning tomorrow and for one week only, players can use 10 Event Tickets or 100 Play Points to enter the Supreme Pioneer Chaos Draft League. Players will be presented with a pool of 36 random virtual boosters and, drafting alone, will pick two cards from each pack up to 36 cards and use them to build a 40-card deck. This event will be Phantom, so the cards you draft won’t be added to your collection.
