Bringing MagicFest to You
MagicFest Online is a tournament series on Magic: The Gathering Arena, pitting players from around the globe against each other for cash prizes and invites to the Players Tour.
Daily Qualifiers will run at 3AM, 9AM, 3PM and 9PM Pacific Time to give all players a convenient time to play. Each flight has an entry fee of $25 and players finishing 5-1 or better will advance to the Weekly Championship! If you win 10 Daily Qualifier matches over the course of the week, you qualify for that week’s Weekly Championship. You can see your progress for the week by clicking here. As an added bonus, each player that plays in a MagicFest Online Daily Qualifier will receive a coupon for one free Booster Draft at a live MagicFest (up to $20 value).
Each Weekly Championship is a two-day tournament with Day One on Saturday and Day Two on Sunday. Players are competing for a $25,000 cash prize pool, with the Top 8 receiving invites to the Players Tour Series 2, and the Top 32 receiving invitations to the Season Finals. The tournament is 8 rounds on Day One with players with 6 wins or more advancing to Day Two. Magic Pro League and Rivals League members are invited to the Weekly Championship, so the competition will be tough!
The Season Finals is a two-day tournament with a $50,000 cash prize pool, 32 Players Tour Series 2 invitations and two invites to the Players Tour Finals Minneapolis up for grabs!

We’re delighted with the response to MagicFest Online so far! We’ve been listening to your feedback and are excited to announce MagicFest Online Season 2 - with some changes!
First, we are eliminating some of the feel bads just missing your shot at the Weekly Championship by implementing a Points Based Qualification. In Season 2, if you win 10 Daily Qualifier matches over the course of the week, you qualify for that week’s Weekly Championship! This is in addition to qualifying if you get 5 wins in any individual Daily Qualifier. You can see your progress for the week by clicking here.
Second, we are giving you more chances to play. We are adding a 6PM Qualifier each day and removing the qualifiers that run at the start of the Weekly Championship on the weekends (3AM and 9AM). The schedule for Season 2 looks this this:
