As part of an ongoing series of weekly changes, Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has announced the updates and changes for Week 8 of Adventures in the Forgotten Realms on Magic Online.

Magic Online All-Access

Beginning September 1 at 10 AM PT, players can purchase a PAX entry package for $20. This package includes:

  • “A Mythic Event Token usable for entry into one of the 28 Constructed events held during the four days of the convention.”
  • “All Access to cards in Magic Online until Wednesday at 10 AM PT.”

Also included with All Access is free entry into any number of casual games. Note: Leagues, Queues, and Scheduled Events will still have entry fees.

Playing three rounds in one of the convention events will also net up to nine (9) booster packs, plus an exclusive Xanathar avatar and non-foil Demilich. Winning three rounds in a single convention event will award a Wizards Ticket, which grants entry into the Convention Series Championship on Saturday, January 1, 2022.
