The Challenger Series returns this year in a slightly different form. We'll only be using Standard and Modern this year. We'll be running a points system alongside the events too with the leader for each season receiving a booster box of the new set. This means that the second season (May, June & July) leader will receive a booster box of Magic 2019 upon release.
The system has been revamped with events becoming cheaper and Challenger Series points being a little flatter across the events. This should keep the leaderboard closer and keep more players in contention throughout each season.
Challenger Series Details:
There will be 3 more Challenger Series events, 2 this season and a stand alone one next season. Next season's one will be Standard.
There will then be a finals in August and the following will qualify for it:
- Season 1 Leader
- Season 2 Leader
- Format Leaders: Modern & Standard
- Top 4 unqualified from the leaderboard
Currently qualified is Dan Lucia for winning season 1.
