JOIN THE CLUB
Each Starcitygames.com Open event (Standard, Legacy, and Draft) awards Open Points to 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! For more information, see here.

QUALIFY FOR THE INVITATIONAL!

* Finish in the Top 8 of a Standard or Legacy Open
* Win a Draft Open
* Achieve Level 2 or 3 in the Players' Club
