Your chance to qualify for the Paragon Championship!

Paragon Opens are sanctioned constructed tournaments. This means that you will be awarded Planeswalker Points for competing in Opens. All Opens will use a Swiss pairings system with a cut to a single-elimination Top 8.

Paragon Opens give you two paths to the Paragon Championship:

Winning an Open
Enter an Open and come first.
Paragon Points
Be amongst the top 11 Paragon Points leaders at the end of the season. Gain Paragon Points by playing in Opens. The higher you place and more Opens you play, the more Paragon Points you get!
Ties in Paragon Points will be broken based on total Match Points across all Paragon Open events.

Paragon Open Prizes and Player Rewards

Each Open has a minimum of $250 in guaranteed cash prizes. Also up for grabs are free subscriptions to OzGuild's collection management service and booster prizes*.

The final battlefield, the Paragon Championship pitches the 16 best players of the series against each other for their share of $500 in cash and other prizes and the title of Paragon Champion.

Championship Structure

The Paragon Championship will be a mixed format constructed tournament. The Championship will follow a double-elimination structure playing both Standard and Modern formats.

Paragon Points still matter. In every match of the Championship, from the beginning all the way to the final, the player with more Paragon Points chooses whether to play or draw first.
