Wizards of the Coast announced a new event at their million-dollar weekend August 2–5 in Minneapolis, Minnesota for Magic: The Gathering. They’re calling it the Silver Showcase:
The Silver Showcase will be a Rochester Draft event like no other, as the players Rochester draft three packs each of Limited Edition (Beta), one pack each of Arabian Nights, one pack each of Antiquities, and one pack each of Legends.
The Rochester Draft will take place Thursday, August 2, at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the afternoon before the Pro Tour. The single-elimination rounds will take place after the conclusion of each day of competition for Pro Tour 25th Anniversary, with the quarterfinals taking place Friday evening, the semifinals Saturday evening, and the finals Sunday morning.
The eight players invited also span the history of competitive Magic, with the first four of those players being the top lifetime Pro Point earners from each geographic region. The other four are invitees of some historic import to the game.
Best of all, the event will be streamed live on https://www.twitch.tv/magic when it occurs on August 2nd.
