So you’ve been playing at your store, working your way toward the Store Championship. You’ve battled with Temur Energy, crossed Approach of the Second Sun/Sunbird’s Invocation off your bucket list, and even tried that weird Merfolk deck one crazy weekend. You’ve earned your shot at the title of Store Champion.
But that title—while tantalizing—is only part of the prize. Today, I’m going to show you the rest of it.
First up is a little something you might have already seen—a Champion playmat with the full map of Ixalan on it! This goes only to the big winner.
And, finally, the part you all actually came here to see, is the full-art card from Rivals of Ixalan you can receive just for participating—and it’s a freakin’ Elder Dinosaur. World, meet Ghalta, Primal Hunger.
Elder Dino, what?
If you’re not sure what’s going on with your Store Championship, check with your local store for how you can participate and what day of the final week in December the event will be held.

Happy Announcement Day!
We have a big year planned to celebrate Magic‘s 25th anniversary. From new in-store play programs to new digital offerings to a slate of celebratory products, we’re not letting this anniversary go unmarked.
You can watch the full announcement below, but this article is meant to show off the products coming to you during our 25th anniversary celebration. As these sets don’t release until later in the year—or even next year!—expect some of the information (primarily images, logos, and the like) to be filled in in the coming months.
Now the exciting part—what’s coming up as part of our celebration of 25 years of Magic: The Gathering! Watch the video below for more information!
We’ll be officially kicking off our 25th anniversary celebration at HASCON in Providence, Rhode Island, September 8–10, 2017. That event will be filled with games, previews of upcoming products, and fun events everyone can enjoy—including an early Prerelease for Iconic Masters that will be the world’s first look at that set. For more information on HASCON, visit hascon.hasbro.com.
This is definitely a lot of awesome news in addition to what news we got earlier this week:
