Streets of New Capenna: Where Family Means Business

Streets of New Capenna: Where Family Means Business

by Ben Calica MTG, Prerelease

Wealth. Power. Prestige. Offers you can't refuse. You can find it all on the streets of New Capenna - as long as you watch your back.  The latest Magic set, Streets of New Capenna, is filled with 3-color goodness (or badness in this case) in the form of five feuding crime families: THE OBSCURA (WHITE-BLUE-BLACK)"Information is Power" THE MAESTROS (BLUE-BLACK-RED)"Crime is an Art Form" THE RIVETEERS (BLACK-RED-GREEN)"Always Finish the Job" THE CABARETTI (RED-GREEN-WHITE)"Fun isn't Free" THE BROKERS (GREEN-WHITE-BLUE)"Read the Fine Print" Each of these five families is headed by a powerful demon lord, offering you power in exchange for your loyalty. But beware: there is always a price to pay in the Gilded Age-inspired city of New Capenna. Each family offers its own unique and powerful mechanic. The question is - whose side will you choose?  Upcoming Events 4/22 Friday 6:30 Sealed 4/23  Saturday Sat 10AM Sealed Sat 4PM Two Headed Giant 4/24 Sunday Sun 10AM Sealed Sun 4PM Sealed 4/29 Friday FNM (7:00) 4/30 Saturday Sat 10AM Sealed Sat 4PM Two Headed Giant 5/1 Sunday Sun 10AM Sealed Sun 4PM Sealed This weekend and next, we have a plethora of sealed events using the prerelease kits from the new set. Players can get their boxes of 6 packs to open and get to build their decks starting 1 hour before each event.  New Capenna is a faction set, so you will get one of the five faction kits. Faction kits have 5 normal 15-card packs, 1 random exclusive promo foil rare or mythic rare from the set, and a special 15-card faction pack which you can only get in the prerelease kits. We provide the basic lands, so you don't need anything more to play.  We pride ourselves that  no one here will make you feel anything but welcome (we all started from scratch at some point).   All events are sealed using the prerelease kits.  Make your best decks and win a pack, win a round.   If we have enough players to accommodate both, we will also have competitive prize pools for the 10AM sealed events. (Competitive prize pools mean more chance to win lots of packs if you do very well, but more rounds and the chance to win no prize packs if you don't. Better for more expert players.) The prerelease and release events are great chances for players who haven't gotten a chance to play in person to come to a friendly, fun event where everyone is starting from scratch and no one knows much more than anyone else yet.  We recommend if you are new, or you have a friend who is new, to play in the Two-Headed Giant events, which are two-person team events. So long as one person in the team knows how to play, you can both have fun without any pressure to know the rules right away. Masks and vaccination cards are required. Players must be 12 or older. Set Info Streets of New Capenna is set in a magical city reminiscent of the 1920's Gilded Age, centered around five three-color crime families. Each family is headed by a powerful legendary demon don, and each comes with its own unique mechanic, which reflects their theme and fantasy: The creatures of the devious Obscura can connive, which allows you to draw, then discard cards and grow their creatures to put yourself in a more advantageous position. Discerning Maestros spells can have an optional casualty cost, which allows you to sacrifice your underlings - sorry, your loyal creatures - to copy your instant and sorcery spells. Rough-and-tumble Riveteers creatures get the job done quick and dirty with their blitz costs, which gives them haste and lets you draw a card when they die, but requires you to sacrifice them at the end of the turn. Sociable Cabaretti cards bring everyone to the party - they trigger their alliance effects whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control. Finally, the disciplined Brokers offer your permanents shield counters - counters which prevent one instance of damage or destruction, and are then removed. Streets of New Capenna comes with a host of new and decadent variants to bring a gilded feel to your collection. The full list of variant cards is available here. The full list of all cards is available here. The set also comes with a number of special, exclusive new legendary creatures available only in set and collector boosters, themed in the popular Innistrad plane. A full product overview of the set is available here. Set booster boxes are $139.99. They contain 30 set boosters and one exclusive premium full-art box topper. We will take $20 off for preorders ($119.99). Only events and preorders are available until Friday 4/29, when all Streets of New Capenna products will be available. Finally, for you Commander players out there, there are five new Commander preconstructed decks that have been released alongside the set. each representing one of the five crime families. Their full decklists can be found here. We hope to see you soon for the release of Streets of New Capenna. If you have what it takes, we promise we can make it worth your while.    

Return of Drafting @ D20 (plus pokemon

Return of Drafting @ D20 (plus pokemon

by Ben Calica D&D, MTG, Store news

Hey folks.... A few event updates of significance.. Return of drafts for FNM Two Headed Giant on Sat moves from 3pm to 4pm start time.  D&D is coming back...   Return of Drafting for FNM: Starting 10/22 we will experimenting with doing drafts again for Friday Night Magic.  We'll be pulling out the plastic tablecloths (the ones we used for birthdays) so we can sanitize them in between rounds, and we will have everyone sanitize hands before they start drafting (and have a no drinks or anything that will get hands next to a mouth during the drafting process).  If I think this is going well, this is what we will do from now on. We have also raised the price of the drafts to $20. (The packs have gotten more expensive and we have a much more limited number of players we can have for the events so we really need every dollar we can to start to clime out of the joy and fun of last year).  But I'm going to do this. For all of our old players, if you also were pushed to the limit from last year or just can't afford the price increase, tell us at the counter and we'll let you keep doing the old $15 for at least the next few months.   Two Headed Giants moving from 3-4 on Saturdays: We're shifting the time for the two headed giants back to the old time of 4pm, so it returns it to being more of a date night, evening fun activity. This really is one of our favorite events and we will be doing it consistantly to get it back up and running.  (Still have to have the 12+ age limit, but as soon as the vaccination for the younger folks comes in, we'll happily open the doors to let them back). D&D in person is starting back up: This Sunday (10/24) is going to be Dan's return to DMing events in the store.  The time will be 2-7 and will be limited to 7 players.  This event will be a 4 session run and should be good fun. This is for players with some experience playing, not a first time event. $20 pers session (and if you want to come to all 4, probably best to get tix in advance) "We will be doing a Dungeon  Crawl into an Abandoned Dwarven Keep . Players Should Create a Level 5 Character using Standard array or the pound buy system in the players hand book.  Players will have standard starting equipment as well as any 1 Uncommon Magic item of their choice.  Any Player resources and books printed by Wizards of the Cost will be allowed including unearthed arcana." Starting in about a week we will start doing Weds D&D and after that, late night Saturday Pokémon: Pokémon continues to be in extremely short supply.  We are continuing to let 12 and younger kids buy 1 pack a day at the old 3.99 price so they don't get totally overrun by the adults who are snapping everything up. I'm sorry for not having preorders for all the higher end stuff, but we don't know until the last minute what will come in.  If you want Pokémon gifts for the holidays, I really reeaally recommend getting them now. The supply chain is truly messed up and hits this stuff hard.  Hope to see you this week and as always...seriously thanks for shopping local. Ben P.S.  We will be spreading out sales/offerings over November so we don't have to get people to waste part of their vacation running around shopping.
