Main Event - Byes

How can I check how many byes I have for a Grand Prix?

We will post a player list with byes the Thursday at 8PM local time prior the Grand Prix.

Before that, you can check how many byes you will have by accessing your Planeswalker Points account at

Enter your DCI number, Click on Yearly, and depending on the total points on the two most recent yearly seasons, you will earn byes for the Event.

Having a total of 1300 or above in any of the two most recent yearly seasons will grant you 1 bye

Having a total of 2250 or above in any of the two most recent yearly seasons will grant you 2 byes.

Please note that Team GP's currently do not feature byes of any kind

When do points for byes cut off?

The cut for byes will be done the Wednesday before the Grand Prix. Any points won on that Wednesday or later, will not modify the number of byes for the Grand Prix.

You can still earn 2 byes by playing in any of the Last Chance Trials on the Friday of the Grand Prix.

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

If you have byes, you have a Sleep in Special.
The recommended times to show up if you have byes, are:
1 bye at 10AM
2 byes at 11AM
3 byes at 12:00

You are still responsible to get to the venue in time for your round or for the construction of your deck.

If the Grand Prix is Sealed, head over the Sleep in Special Check-In Area to build your deck. The Area will be open around 9:30 AM
