The winner of the North American Championship will, of course, receive the Greatest Prize in Gaming: the opportunity to design a card featuring their likeness.The winner will also receive a first round bye at the NISEI World Championship taking place this October in Rotterdam!
The North American Continental Championship will be the first event larger than a Regional Championship to take place using MWL 3.3! With the last MWL before Worlds set to be released in September, GenCon will be our biggest and best opportunity to evaluate the meta. Everyone attending will therefore be helping shape the environment in which Worlds will take place! If you’ve discovered some unbeatable deck tech you’ve been keeping quiet about, GenCon will be the ideal venue to unleash it, with some of the most competitive players in the game vying for that Worlds first round bye!
