Mirrodin Besieged Game Day - Sunday, March 6th, 2011!

Game Day is fast approaching! With the results of Paris behind us, I'm sure you're all anxious to come out to L.A. Mood to test your own take on the Standard decks of the day against all-comers to compete for the fabulous prizes available!

Like Friday Night Magic events, Game Day is a Standard tournament; however, there are a few extra tweaks to make the day just a little more exciting!

All participants will recieve a copy of the sure-to-be-outstanding full-art Treasure Mage. Top 8 finishers will recieve a copy of the amazing full-art Black Sun's Zenith.

In addition, the Top 2 finishers with "affiliated" decks will get a copy of either Suture Priest or Pristine Talisman, based on their deck's affiliation. This is in addition to any other prize you might earn, and you can earn these promos without placing in the Top 8:

How can you make an "affiliated" deck?

"Affiliated" decks contain NO cards watermarked with the opposing faction's symbol, and a MINIMUM of 10 cards watermarked with the affiliated factions's symbol. For example, a "Mirran" deck could not run copies of Into the Core (Phyrexian), and would have to have at least 10 cards watermarked like Ardent Recruit (Mirran). Cards without watermarks from previous sets, like the Zendikar Block or M11, do not count for or against your affiliation. Notice, as well, that Tezzeret has no watermark - he's neither Mirran nor Phyrexian! Before you declare your faction, double-check your card list and make sure you're all right!

Standard tournament rules apply - 60 card decks, 15 card sideboards, from Standard-legal sets only (Zendikar, Worldwake, Rise of the Eldrazi, Magic 2011, Scars of Mirrodin and Mirrodin Besieged). In addition,

1) There in NO entry fee. Prize support will be similar to an FNM, with a few extra goodies I've socked away for special occasions!

2) Sanctioned Side Drafts are available all day!

Start time is at 11:00 a.m.

See you all on Game Day!

As always, questions and comments can be directed to

An Important Announcement for our Magic Players

Hello, FNM players, drafters and Sunday casuals!

Just a quick announcement to remind you that our events on Friday, February 11th and Monday, February 14th will be run by our capable friend, Mark Wells. Mark will be provided with all the prizes and product you're used to seeing on those days

Our usual Sunday casual event on Sunday, February 13th has been cancelled, but will resume the following Sunday!

In addition, I will not be in the store between Tuesday, February 8th and Thursday, February 17th. My apologies for the inconvenience. I will do my utmost to ensure the store binders are well-stocked prior to me absence and that the store has an updated buylist if you're looking to sell your cards to us! I will be entirely unavailable during that time, so unfortunately, there will be no response at if you e-mail me then. Sorry!

See you all this Friday for our normal FNM! Remember: Mirrodin Besieged is legal for play and the store will have a full supply of all the cards you need!
Announcing: The Mirrodin Besieged Release!

Didn't get enough of Mirrodin Besieged at the pre-release? I know I didn't! So I'm doing it all again this Sunday!

It is my pleasure to announce the Mirrodin Besieged Release at L.A. Mood this Sunday, February 6th, starting at 11:00 a.m.

Our format for the event, just like the pre-release, is Sealed Deck, with one difference - the factionalized packs are no more! All participating players will recieve 3 generic Mirrodin Besieged boosters and 3 Scars of Mirrodin boosters, as well as one copy of the release promo, Thopter Assembly (Open the Vaults players rejoice!)

As before, the cost of entry will be $28, and the prizes will remain spectacular!

A few details in advance of the event:

1) Once again, we will be logging the contents of our packs. Hopefully, increased familiarity with the process will keep things speedy!

2) Once again, we will not be registering your eventual decklist. However, there is the possibility of a random deck-check this weekend; I will be checking to ensure that the only cards in your deck are cards listed on your checklist. Once again, the actual decklist is not being checked: only that the deck contains cards from your sealed pool and your sealed pool alone.

3) Other, incremental improvements to the pairing, announcement and seating systems will be in place to continue to provide you the smoothest and easiest release tournament ever, with an absolute minimum of voice cracks.

And that's it! See you on Sunday - try to arrive by 10:30 a.m. in order to keep the event running smoothly! Let's try to beat the pre-release attendance record of 52!

As always, questions, comments and suggestions can be e-mailed to
