Grand Prix - Start time

When does the Grand Prix start? 

All our Grand Prix begin at 9 AM with a truncated player meeting going straight into round one. If you have byes you will have free Sleep in Special, so you don't need to attend until your given round. Specific bye times will be emailed out the Weds/Thurs night of the MagicFest weekend.

For Constructed Grand Prix events your decklist must be submitted online by 8:45AM the day of the event or it will be considered tardy. There will be tablets at the event site configured for decklist entry if you do not have internet access. 

If I have byes*, when do I have to show up?

If you have byes, you have a Sleep in Special.
You need to show up at these times:

1 bye at 9:30AM
2 byes at 10:30AM
3 byes at 11:30AM


1 bye at 9:00AM with the general player meeting.
2 byes at 10:30AM
3 byes at 11:30AM

*Please note that Grand Prix byes will be phased out on May 25, 2020. There will be no byes at Grand Prix events after that date.

The time disparity is because you will need to make sure you have built your deck and submitted before your entry round begins. You are responsible to get to the venue in time for your round or for the construction of your deck.

For Limited head over the Sleep in Special Check-In Area to build your deck. The Sleep in Special Area will be open around 10:30 AM. Be aware if you arrive early, you may be delayed as we may not be able to assist you until the stated time. 

When does the Grand Prix Day 2 begin?

Day 2 starts at 9AM sharp! Make sure you get to the venue a little earlier to make sure you are not late!

How can I qualify for Day 2? What is the structure?

Remember that after the first 8 Rounds of Day 1, there will be a cut, then Round 9 will also be played on Saturday
