JOIN THE CLUB
Each Starcitygames.com Open event (Standard, Legacy, and Draft) awards Open Points to all participating players. Earning 4 Open Points gets you to Level 1 in the Starcitygames.com Players' Club, which gets you a free pack of sleeves at every future Open Weekend that you attend. Appearance fees, free entry and byes in Constructed Opens, all the way up to a full playset (4x of each card, including mythics) of every new regular Magic set!

QUALIFY FOR THE INVITATIONAL!
Last year, qualification for the Invitational was based on Open Points. This year, we’ve simplified the system! Here’s how you can qualify for a StarCityGames.com Invitational tournament:
* Finish in the Top 8 of a Standard or Legacy Open
* Win a Draft Open
* Achieve Level 2 or 3 in the Players' Club
