Two-Headed Giant Chaos Draft!
You and a partner will pick up six unique packs and draft two decks. Take it head-to-head for charity!
Planar Chaos on Dominaria! Again!
Draft Dominaria Remastered, and hop from plane to plane as our Planechase deck shifts the rules every 5 minutes.
25-player limited seating! After drafting a Vanguard, five pods of five players will face off in this two-round event. One winning player from each pod will show down in the second round.
JumpStart with a Content Creator!*
So your favorite content creator is here this year, and you want to play a game with them? Why not get a quick game of this year’s Jumpstart in, while letting them know why their spiciest takes are super wrong? (They love it when you do that).
Let’s get weird! If you play any cards that interact with social media, be sure to mention the event or tag @CMDRSealed for a special prize!
In this spin on Rochester’s own draft format, pods of four players will draft four packs at a time. Once drafting is complete games will be played in multiplayer pods of four and follow the rules for Omniscience Draft (Each player has an Omniscience and a Rule of Law emblem, and can make WUBRG once per turn).
Not for the faint of heart, Rochester Draft is intense!
Commander Sealed Redemption!
Give your Sealed deck a second chance, but with a twist! Players can spend a ticket and discard a card to cast a copy of Booster Tutor!
Five-player pods will backstab, double-cross, and betray each other as each group tries to take out the most marks.
In this unique Commander format, cards from Unglued, Unhinged, Unstable, and Unfinity will be legal to play along with typically legal cards (Gods help our judges!)
Six players face off in two teams of three! Each player cracks a single pack, adds 15 basic lands, and faces off with another team to topple the opposing emperor. Turbo Time! You sit, you play when the pod fills!
*These events are on-demand! (Or on-demand-ish in the case of Jumpstart with a Content Creator)
