This Saturday: Creator Showdown Streaming All Over The Web

The crown jewel of our Creator Program offerings is our monthly Creator Showdown broadcasts. Each month, up to 64 of Magic Online’s top streamers will compete in a six-round, double-elimination tournament. All of them will be streaming at once to start the day, so find your favorites and support their channels!

When the 16 undefeated players are decided, you can follow the action on MTGO’s Twitch broadcast – where we’ll whip around from match to match with a rotating cast of commentators: this week TheWillHallEXP and Ecobaronen will be calling the action (and giveaways galore). In the end, as much as $5,000 USD will be divvied among those who emerge with one loss or less – with a reward of $1,250 for completing a 6-0 finish!

Mark your calendars for the first round of Creator Showdowns:

MH3 Super Qualifier This Weekend

MTGO’s Limited Super Qualifier featuring Modern Horizons 3 Sealed Deck and Top 8 Draft. That tournament begins Sunday, June 16 at 7 a.m. PT (14:00 UTC).

Because we’re using more valuable product, It takes 50 Event Tickets or 500 Play Points to enter this event, though the normal rate of 40 Season 2 Qualifier Points applied as well. The Top 4 finishers in tournament earn a seat in the September-December RC round, and prizes pay out to the Top 128 including MH3 sets to the Top 8!
