Magic Online Introduces Super Qualifiers

Since most of us are playing Magic from home, why not try out Super Qualifiers on MTGO!

As part of an ongoing series of weekly changes, Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has announced the updates and changes coming this week to Magic Online.

New Series of Super Qualifiers

Magic Online is adding a new series of qualifiers to provide more ways for players to qualify for the upcoming Players Tour events. The Magic Online Super Qualifiers will run with the existing qualifiers, but in addition to inviting players to the Players Tour Series 2 events, the prizes will be juiced. On top of the normal prize pool, finishers in 65th to 128th place will get 100 Play Points.
