Innistrad: Prerelease into Darkness!

One of the most flavorful sets to come out in a long time, Innistrad's Prerelease is this Sunday!  Join us at L.A. Mood to explore this new set for the first time!

Format: Sealed Deck. 6 boosters of Innistrad are provided; from this, construct a deck with a minimum of 40 cards. The rest of your cards are your Sideboard for the duration of the tournament. Lands are provided.

Rounds: Swiss rounds with a cut to Top 8. 

Time: Sunday, September 25th. Registration opens at 10:00 am. The Tournament begins at 11:00 am.

Cost: $27, payable at the door.

Rules and Enforcement: This Prerelease is run at a Regular Rules Enforcement Level - same as an FNM.  

~ ~ ~

This tournament will feature Pool Registration and Random Checks to ensure that your deck only contains cards from your pool. Pool Registration will be done at the start of the tournament, and will consist of:

1) Opening your booster packs and noting the contents on the provided pool registration sheet.
2) Passing the contents of the packs, along with the registration sheet, to be double-checked by another player (determined by seating).

The Random Checks consist of:

1) Randomly selecting players at the beginning of a round and briefly examining their deck to ensure only cards registered in their pool are in their decks.

There is NO Deck Registration. You are free to change the details of your deck in between rounds as much as you like, provided you are only using cards registered to your personal pool.

~ ~ ~

In addition to all of the above, generous prizes are available to our top-placing participants (Top 8/Top16 based on attendance) and each and every player will receive a free promotional copy of the two-faced Mayor of Avabruck - as well as a 2/2 Wolf Token to go with him!

Don't miss out!

But that's not all!  One week later, on Sunday, October 2nd, we'll be hosting an Innistrad Release tournament!  Release tournaments are run identically to Prereleases - however, a different promotional card becomes available.  Innistrad's Release promo is the truly frightening Ludevic's Test Subject.

And don't forget!  Pre-ordering a booster box of Innistrad before this Friday will entitle you to a $100 box cost (tax included), along with a copy of the buy-a-box promo, Devil's Play, for the first 20 customers (other customers will be treated to other goodies as availability lasts)

Don't forget, questions, comments and concerns can be directed to, 24/7!
