As part of an ongoing series of weekly changes, Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has announced the updates and changes for Week 9 of Adventures in the Forgotten Realms on Magic Online.
Magic Online All-Access Returns Sept. 15
Players can purchase a Gen Con entry package for $20 starting Sept. 15 at 10 AM PT. 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.
