As a reminder, card styles are a cosmetic option only and do not add any cards to a player’s collection. There is no benefit to acquiring a card style more than once; if you achieve Gold Rank or higher in both Limited and Constructed, you will only receive one copy of the card style.
Qualifier Weekend Invitation
Players who finish in the top 250 of Mythic-ranked competitors will qualify to participate in the Qualifier Weekend shown below. Matches that finish prior to 12:00 p.m. PT on October 31, 2022, will count toward final season ranking for October, which determine invitations to the November Qualifier Weekend.
Players can earn the Qualifier Token for entry to a Qualifier Weekend by reaching maximum wins in a single course of a Play-In event that feeds that Qualifier Weekend.
There are typically two Qualifier Play-Ins each month:
- A Best-of-One event is held on Saturday, seven days before Qualifier Weekend.
- A Best-of-Three event is held on Friday, the day before Qualifier Weekend.
Learn more on the Qualifier Play-In Information page.
