One of our favorite parts of a new release is playing with those new cards. Cracking booster packs for the first time, and sharing in the excitement of new cards and new interactions. We are excited to bring that experience online with the Time Spiral Remastered Release event!
All you need is six draft boosters of Time Spiral Remastered and some basic lands and you can build a 40 card deck to battle with throughout the event. Support your local game store by picking up the packs there and, if they are doing an Online Release Event, you should also check it out. Our event will run for over 24 hours so hopefully you can join us when you’re done and still looking to battle!
In order to play on SpellTable, there’s just a couple of things you’ll need. Of course first and foremost you’ll need your Time Spiral Remastered boosters and basic lands to make your deck. You can pick these up from your local game store (find the nearest store to you here) or from ChannelFireball here!
After that, you’ll need some dice and tokens, or at least something to clearly indicate tokens.
For the technical side of things, you’ll need a computer with internet access and a webcam (or a cellphone with a camera). You’ll log into SpellTable using your Wizards account. Don’t worry if you don’t have one yet, you can create a Wizards account here!
Lastly, while not essential, we recommend having a microphone of some sort. More often than not, this will make things a lot smoother in games!
Now that you’re ready to play head over to the Discord and hang out with the other players there until March 19th
Time Spiral is known for warping what we know about the game of Magic and we’re leaning into that during the release event. It’s not just about wins and losses—you’ll earn points by completing challenges during your Sealed matches! You’ll be earning points towards a larger community competition.
Ahead of the event, you’ll be able to choose a team to champion in your games in the event!
Teams will each have a group of well-known personalities from the Magic community as leaders to chat and play with, and their own exclusive channels in Discord to communicate, strategize and help with deckbuilding!
Challenges throughout the event will earn points for your team, both in games and through Discord. We’ll keep a leaderboard updated with who’s in the lead, so you’ll know if your team is sitting pretty as king of the hill, or who’s hot on your heels to take the top spot!
Be sure to check in on Twitch.tv, as team captains will be streaming parts of the event when they can! This is a great way to see them lead their teams throughout the different challenges of the event!
This event is about more than just ordinary Time Spiral Sealed – you’ll also be able to team up with other players to face off against challenging world bosses! Players will sign up similar to how they join a game, but not everyone can fight the Boss at the same time! Groups of 3 will be randomly chosen to face off with our World Boss representatives. Players not chosen can follow along on a Discord Stream
- What triggers world events?
There is no way to truly predict when these things may happen. You’ll have to pay attention to the announcements channel so you don’t miss out!
- Do I need to play by the world event rules?
Nope! If all you want is to play TSR Sealed we’ll have a Traditional 1v1 queue that will award points just like any other match, only you won’t be expected to be following along with all the World Event effects and Challenges
- Who do I speak to if I don’t understand how world events work?
If you have questions about this or any of our activities, head on over to the Discord and one of our staff will be happy to assist!
Join the battle with a friend! When you and a friend each purchase 6 boosters from your local game store, you’ll be able to use your decks to play side-by-side in a Two-Headed Giant battle against another team anywhere in the world! In Two-Headed Giant, players share their turns and their life totals. Make sure your friend has a strong enough deck to keep both of you healthy, because once a team’s shared life total falls to zero, their opponents will get to collect all of the victory points!
In the 2-Headed Giant queues you use the same 40 card sealed deck as the other, single player queues. You’ll need to join the queue as a pair, with a partner already. If you don’t have a partner you can use your team’s channel to find one! The queue will be available all throughout the event, so make sure to brush up on how 2-Headed Giant works here!
Throughout the weekend we’ll be celebrating Time Spiral Remastered with lots of different activities. So if you have some downtime between matches, or are not able to play you can still hang out with other players to participate in text based games and challenges that will take place in the Discord server throughout the event. Try your hand at Magic Trivia, or show off your Sealed deck skills in the Deckbuilding Help channel. You can even test your drafting knowledge against some of your favorite Pros making first picks from different packs.
