MOCS STEP 1 – Showcase Challenges & Last Chance Events

Players looking to prove their mettle against the best players in Magic Online will want to use their QPs to enter Magic Online Champions Showcase (MOCS) events. MOCS is a set of linked tournaments designed to highlight the game's best players each season, culminating in the Champions Showcase and its prize pool of $70,000 and two invitations to the World Championship!

Each of these events require 40 QPs to enter. The Top 8 finishers from each event earn an invitation token to enter that format's Showcase Qualifier. (Redundant Showcase Qualifier invites do not pass down)
