Welcome one and all to the first Sorcery event held at The Missing Piece! This draft will give players a taste of the new Beta set! But how do you draft in Sorcery? Well…
First, players will each have 3 booster packs. Then, each player will open 1 of those packs, discard the basic site slot, pick 1 card from the selection found in that pack, and then pass that pack to the player on their left. This means those players will receive cards from the player on their right to pick from. This process will continue until there are no more cards to pick from.
Once players have run out of cards to pick from, they’ll open the second pack and repeat the process from before, except they will pass their cards to the right, and receive cards from the player on their left. When the second round of passing has finished, they’ll repeat the process one last time with their last pack, passing cards to the left again like they did in the first round.
Now that all the cards have been drafted, players are expected to build a 25 card Spellbook and 12 card Atlas with the cards they drafted. If you don’t have enough cards to form a proper Atlas deck, we will provide basic sites to help fill out the deck. A Sorcerer will be provided for everyone to use as their Avatar, but any avatar drafted may be used instead of so desired.
12:00pm – In person sign ups can begin for players that didn’t sign up through our website.
12:30pm – Drafting begins! Once drafting starts, we cannot add new players to the event, so please be sure to arrive with enough time to sign up, as well as order any food or drink you’d like to have before the games begin. Players will have 50 minutes to draft and deck build.
1:30 pm – Round 1 begins! Best of 1 where players have 50 minutes to complete their match. 10 minutes will follow each match for breaks and overtime.
Around 4:30pm – Prizes will be awarded! Each player can expect to receive 1 pack from Alpha, and may receive additional prizes based on how they perform in the event as well as a few giveaways that will be randomly given throughout the event!
