Please delete if this is not allowed. I have a pod of 4 players that play on Monday. We usually have 3 players. We play on spelltable. We are looking for 1 more player and would like to keep it local. If you are interested DM me. We play around 8 PM for 3-5 hours depending on the night.
Hi! I was looking to sign up for Legacy tomorrow, but it looks like the pricing may have changed. It looks like Legacy is $15, the same price as draft. Thank you for the clarification!
The one thing I actually miss because of the covid saga has been going to Pats. All of my fomo landed in a Pats shaped hole in my heart. Can't wait until I get to go play there again :)
Do you have modern horizons 2 on presale?
Do have promo packs for any of the last couple of sets? I would be interested in some.
Sometimes I like sharing things about how I think about my store. Looking back at the 29 years I have been in business. A long time ago someone asked me about being a gamer. I thought to myself, I am not really a gamer. I now realize I am a huge gamer. Not only do I love playing magic, I started out playing games as a small child. My grandpa lived with us and he would play card games with us all the time. He was kind of salty about losing so he played to win even against a 4 year old. I grew up and didn't have time for games as college and work happened. Then I had children and I started playing Nintendo with my son. I would play his game when he was at day care. He was playing before he could read and he would get so frustrated when he couldn't beat a boss. I powered up his character while he was at school. I would tell him when he was frustrated to take breaks and later he would be able to play better and yes he was able to beat those bosses when he got home from school. Then my kids introduced me to magic. We were at Toys R Us and they wanted me to buy them Portal decks. They taught me Magic.

The biggest game I have ever played is, "How to build a successful business." The passion I have is not only the card game but the whole way Magic has been a part of my life.

Many of my customers who were kids when I started have come back to the store and told me I made a difference in their lives.

I think I have won The Magic Store game.

Thanks to all of you who have helped me play it. Pat

[08/25/21]   Update on Magic Tournaments at Pat's. We had 11 players last night for Modern. I am seeing many venues requiring proof of vaccinations. For example:
Austin City Limits Festival will require COVID-19 vaccine or negative test document, we will be able to require vaccination proof for our tournaments. It looks like vaccine mandates are going to become the norm. Expect vaccines to be required at Pat's. We are having and indoor/outdoor prerelease on September 17th. We will also have at home prerelease option available.
PLEASE KEEP AUSTIN SAFE! Please get vaccinated.

Wizards of the Coast announced four brand-new Standard sets scheduled for release in 2022.
The first Standard set coming out in 2022 is Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, which will arrive in Q1. It is set 2000 years after the first Kamigawa set in fantasy cyberpunk world. This set features a new Emperor of Kamigawa as well as a new cyber-ninja planeswalker.

Then, WotC dives into a new setting called Streets of New Capenna for Q2. It features a city built by angels that is now ruled by demon crime families. This fantasy noir setting was also noted as having "special meaning" to the planeswalker Elspeth.

For Magic: The Gathering's 30th anniversary, WotC returns to Dominaria in Q3. Dominaria United showcases the iconic heroes and villains that are rooted in Magic's original plane in new Standard rotation cards.

The Q4 set will take Magic back to the lore of one of its first expansions, Antiquities. The Brothers War tells the story of the battles between Urza and Mishra that devastated the plane of Dominaria. The story for this set was hinted via the archaeological evidence found in Antiquities set, and will feature epic war machines and clockwork contraptions.

Happy Birthday to Jim Hughes!

Happy Birthday to Jim Hughes!

[08/18/21]   I just learned this information. I feel it is important to all our customers. Mystery Booster cards typically include a small printing of the Planeswalker symbol in the lower left corner, similar to what you see in cards from The List found in Set Boosters. While this was the case for all cards in the original printing of Mystery Booster: Convention Edition, in this printing going to WPN stores the Planeswalker symbol will not appear on the Playtest cards.

Logan

Logan has decided to go back to college and finish his environmental engineering degree. We will miss him so much at Pat's. Logan has been with me for 10 years. He was still in high school when I hired him and he did such a great job. He has run the store in the last 3 years. He says he will be back to Pat's frequently to challenge players in tournaments. He will also help us during his breaks from school. He is like a son to me and I wish him much success. Love you, Logan

I know this is a small problem in the whole scheme of things, but I thought I'd vent. I ordered a 48" cabinet off of Amazon 2 months ago. I wanted to put commander decks in it and have it out on the floor where customers can get close enough to read the name of the decks and see the colors. Last week I got a tracking number from Amazon. Tuesday I got an e-mail saying it would be at the store on Friday by 11 p.m. Friday I rip the steel shelving unit down to have space for the new cabinet. This morning I get an e-mail saying it was LOST. How can a 48" wide cabinet just get lost? I just ordered a cabinet NOT FROM AMAZON but from Overstock. This time I have to wait 2 weeks.
So if you are looking for Commander decks give us a little extra time to find them :) This new cabinet hopefully arrives in 2 weeks.

[08/09/21]   Behind the scenes at Pat's Games. Sales have been tremendous since we reopened. It has been difficult to keep our goal of 98% cards in stock. The staff has been opening packs and sorting as fast as we can. Cards have been ordered to fill in the gaps. If you ordered cards within the last two weeks and items were missed, we have used our missed items report and ordered the cards. We are also having a special this week of 1 booster pack free for each $50 increment of singles orders. I wanted to do this to thank all the customers who have hung in their with us through this time. Logan is back from New York and orders will be pulled more quickly. Pat

[08/09/21]   After discussing with my staff about how to open tomorrow, we have agreed that we all feel safe with this policy. There will be hand sanitizer at the front door and also free masks. There will be hand sanitizer by the front desk. Pat's Games will be open starting tomorrow.
