Card Kingdom and Mox Boarding House is proud to present the Legacy Preservation Series Invitational! From July to June, we’ll be keeping track of the top three players from our Weekly Legacy tournaments at each store. We’ll also be tracking player’s performance in the Legacy Preservation Series Tournaments. The three players with the most match wins from each store and the top six players from all of the big monthly tournaments (who didn’t outright win) will join the winners of our Legacy Preservation Series tournaments from that year in a 24-player Invitational tournament. We will cover the winner of that tournament’s hotel, flights, and entry to Eternal Weekend 2017. See below for complete rules.
Results from the 2016-2017 Season can be found at the bottom of the page.
