The tournament format has been added to the original post of this thread. Any questions fire away.

You probably need to add "Mage Wars Academy: Warlock" to the list of allowed products, as it was available the same day as the Priestess.

Nothing would make me(not to mention Sharkbait) happier than to do just that. However the official street release isn't until next month for Academy Warlock and thus it's not available to the mass market yet. Product has to be in stores 30 days prior to an event I'm afraid.

I can confirm it. Distributor in Europe have different dates for Priestess and Warlock and also Mr. Laddifance stated somewhere that Warlock is arriving one month after Priestess.

Academy Priestess and Warlock prereleased at Origins. However those were some advance copies, and the actual release date for Academy Warlock is not till the end of July.

Thus does Laddinface kill the last desperate hope of a proud Shark Mage Warrior.  ;) Don't worry Shark my man there's still my big event in November at Mace*. Burn whatever you what with whatever you want there!

*No comment on PvS being legal for Mace....yet

20 days left and 7 spots remain. That means we're already tied with the total number of entrants last year at 17 competitors. Note that this time next year were weren't even in the single digits yet so the odds that we'll cap are very high indeed.

I think I speak for a lot of us when I say I'm VERY interested in seeing what is brought to this event, what makes the Top 4, and what walks out Gen Con Champion.

Hype Train keeps a rolling on along!

I think everyone should bring an Air Wizard to the match.  :)

64 days to make Akiro's Hammer replica and launch myself across the ocean :P

Hope you guys like Pepsi products cause it was Buy 2, Get 3 Free on 12 packs when I went to go get refreshments for the tournament. Also I'd like to introduce our 5th Judge "Little Debbie" who will be providing snacks to help fight off terrible late round hunger pains. Carbs are good for thinking and my local Necromancers tell me they make souls sweeter to drain.

Also I'll be bringing some "good sportsmanship" alternate art promo cards as well....no not the paladin and siren they got those at the booth :)

Yeah, we expect to make this an even greater year than last time. Higher attendance from all over, food for participants, trophies, mages retooled with acadamy cards... By all estimations, this tournament's going to be a blast.

We're still waiting for the inevitable crush of late entries; last year we had quite a few, and we expect the already large tournament size to keep growing.
