M10 Crisis!

This update is for our Magic players. We are currently experiencing a shortage of M10 boosters. Our expected shipments of M10 have been delayed and we are currently out of stock. This means that until M10 starts rolling in again, our scheduled M10 drafts will instead be Shards/Conflux/Alara Reborn. Hopefully the shortage will be over soon, and we can all get back to collecting duals and trying to crack those Baneslayers.

Hey folks, back again with the monthly Magic updates. First off, lets start with our August schedule:

Friday, August 7: FNM (Standard) @ 6:00 pm
Tuesday, August 11: Booster Draft (M10) @ 6:30 pm

Friday, August 28: FNM (Booster Draft with M10) @ 6:00 pm

Players attending our FNM tournaments this month will have a chance to win a foil version of Lightning Greaves. These incredible boots of speed are enough to make even The Flash jealous.

As most of you are now aware, prizes for drafting at L.A. Mood are awarded by rare redraft. If you win first place in the draft, you will be rewarded by selecting first any rare card opened during the draft. Second place picks second and so on until all the players have made their first picks, resuming from the top down again until all the rares have been drafted.

Next up, The L.A. Mood Killers Team Search Tournament Series (#1) will be held on Sunday, August 23'rd. We are looking to put together a team of skilled magic players to represent the L.A. Mood magic scene when our team brings it's game to local, national, and global venues. This will be the first of four team search tournaments culminating with a finalized team roster to be announced on December 1'st, 2009. We are looking for team members who are passionate about the game and are willing to contribute their time to developing a well rounded team. Team members will test, share ideas, and provide feedback with each other in an effort to achieve the following three goals:

Succeed - We want our team members to achieve their own personal goals of winning consistently. We do not condone cheating or unsportsmanlike conduct however, and any such behaviour may result in expulsion from the team.

Represent - We want our team to be recognized and respected at tournament venues for play skill as well as demeanor. While representing the L.A. Mood Killers, we expect our members to act maturely. Win with style, lose with grace.

Grow - We are looking to develop a team of players that strive to play at a professional level. With regular testing and communication between members, we are confident in our team members achieving this caliber of play.

Without further ado, here are the details:

The L.A. Mood Killers Team Search Tournament Series (#1)

Format: Standard
