To date, thousands of Magic: The Gathering fans have participated in SCG Tour Online events in their quest to qualify for numerous MTG Arena Championships. This weekend, they’ll begin a new journey when the SCG Tour Online returns for three fun-filled days of events featuring MTG Arena’s Standard format. We’d love for you to join them, and here’s how you can!
Satellites are open SCG Tour Online events in which players can earn an invitation to compete in that Sunday’s SCG Tour Online $5K MTG Arena Championship Qualifier, up to two (2) byes in that event, and invitations to participate in an upcoming MTG Arena Qualifier Weekend. Satellites only cost $8 USD each to enter, and this Friday, July 23, you’ll have four opportunities to play in one!
- Satellite #1 – 6:00 AM ET (3:00 AM PT)
- Satellite #2 – 1:00 PM ET (10:00 AM PT)
- Satellite #3 – 7:00 PM ET (4:00 PM PT)
- Satellite #4 – 10:00 PM ET (7:00 PM PT)
This Saturday, July 24, you’ll have four more!
- Satellite #5 – 5:00 AM ET (2:00 AM PT)
- Satellite #6 – 10:00 AM ET (7:00 AM PT)
- Satellite #7 – 4:00 PM ET (1:00 PM PT)
- Satellite #8 – 8:00 PM ET (5:00 PM PT)
Satellites will continue to utilize our SCG Tour Online point system. Based on your record in Satellites, you’ll receive a number of SCG Tour Online Points that can directly qualify for that Sunday’s SCG Tour Online $5K MTG Arena Championship Qualifier, and up to two (2) byes in that event. However, you can also do so by accumulating enough SCG Tour Online Points during an event weekend. Please note that all SCG Tour Online Points reset after each event weekend.
$5K MTG Arena Championship Qualifiers
This Sunday, July 25, the SCG Tour Online $5K MTG Arena Championship Qualifier kicks off at 10:00 AM ET (7:00 AM PT) with a total of $5,000 USD, hundreds of thousands of MTG Arena gems, invitations to compete in an upcoming MTG Arena Qualifier Weekend and/or the Championship event itself up for grabs!
If all of that isn’t enough to quench your thirst for value, this round of SCG Tour Online events will also offer an opportunity to earn a seat in one of Magic: The Gathering’s most prestigious tabletop events by accomplishing either of the following:
- Earn thirty (30) SCG Tour Online Points (which is also 2 byes) during a single SCG Tour Online event weekend
- Finish in the Top 12 of any Sunday’s SCG Tour Online $5K MTG Arena Championship Qualifier
