Anyway possible to have a second draft pod tonight? Says you are full and have at least two other players not including me.
With the Hunter Burton and SCG coming up, when will Neon Dynasty singles go up for pre-order?
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
Just got this sneak peak emailed to me.

Top 8 decklists from last Saturday’s Regional Qualifier.



Maro’s The Brothers’ War Teaser
Before previews for The Brothers’ War officially begin, I thought it would be fun to do another of my Duelist-style teasers where I give tiny hints of things to come. Note that I’m only giving you partial information.

First up, here are some things you can expect:

• over ten legendary Human Artificers

• another card with “end the turn”

• a command with X in its mana cost

• a spell that mimics an element of the effect of a creature that was originally printed with the picture of a World Champion on it

• a Teferi with a new way to gain loyalty counters

• equipment with “Equip Soldier”

• a new Onulet

• protection from everything returns

• a white creature that taps to let you and an opponent draw a card

• one colored artifact

Next, here are some rules text that will be showing up on cards:

• “create a tapped Powerstone token for each other creature you control.”

• “Put a +1/+1 counter on target Assembly-Worker you control.”

• “Whenever one or more creatures with mana value 3 or less enter the battlefield under your control,”

• “Permanents you control have ‘Ward – Sacrifice a permanent.’”

• “Whenever you cast an artifact spell with mana value 6 or greater,”

• “For each card type among noncreature spells you’ve cast this turn,”

• “Create a tapped 3/3 colorless Zombie artifact creature token.”

• “Look at the cards in each pile, then turn a pile of your choice face up.”

• “gains your choice of flying, vigilance, deathtouch, or haste.”

• “Whenever you cast a Beast or Bird creature spell,”

Finally, here are some creature type lines in the set:

• Artifact Creature – Ape

• Creature – Mole Horror

• Artifact Creature – Phyrexian Wurm

• Creature – Phyrexian Human Assassin

• Creature – Minotaur Barbarian

• Creature – Elf Druid Soldier

• Creature – Human Artificer Scout

• Legendary Creature – Human Wizard Advisor

• Legendary Creature – Elf Druid Scout

• Legendary Creature – Human Artificer Advisor

Lessons for Dominaria Draft at Magic World Championship XXVIII 10/25/2022

Lessons for Dominaria Draft at Magic World Championship XXVIII

Lessons for Dominaria Draft at Magic World Championship XXVIII Drafting is tough. Drafting against the best in Magic is even tougher. Marshall shares what World Championship players already know.


I continually look at how many players are at each event and am willing to change things up. The Tuesday High Payout draft attendance has fallen off so I changed it up to Pauper. Let’s see how many players are interested.


One of the players from this weekend’s event just informed me that he tested positive for Covid. Please get tested if you start showing signs.

Derek Teske 1st place and wins an invite. Brendan Malone 2nd place and wins an invite. Tad Macaraeg, Viet Nguyen 3rd and 4th place. 5th thru 8th place, Trey Ellingson, Sam Peagler, Brian Shiels, Alex Brundage. Congrats


Congratulations to our winners from yesterday’s Regional Pro Tour Qualifiers. Thank you to all 41 players who attended and to my staff for a great tournament. A special thank you to Aslan for judging.


Many of you have seen the new awning, but for those who haven’t


Are they making sets too fast?


The RCQ is only a few days away and is filling up. It is capped at 44 players. It is a 1K and I did buy top i pins for this event.


The Brothers’ War Product is available for preorder. It can be picked up as early as the prerelease on November 11th at 3 p.m.


Guess what, it’s time for another prerelease.
(I mean our monthly prerelease)!!! It’s time for Brother‘s War. Pat’s Games has put together tons of prizes. We tried a new Give Away Method at the last prerelease. It was Spin the Wheel. It worked like this, after all the prerelease events were finished, we kept giving prizes. This is what we did, for every prerelease you attended or at home Prerelease kit you purchased your name was entered on our wheel. Play 1 event your name will be on the wheel once. Play in store 5 events, buy 5 take home kits your name will be added 10 times on the wheel. You can win more times than once. You do not need to be present to win.
We are doing this again!
We will also have our in store raffle prizes during each event.
Pat’s Games where the fun begins and never ends.

I’ve had a confusing morning. I have been working on putting up The Brother’s War prerelease events. I discovered that the two different kit options have exactly the same contents. The only differences are the names of the kits and the color of the box. Sheesh. Have fun choosing. Is your favorite color Green or is it Orange?


Pat’s Games Weekly Calendar. Note Special Events may change the calendar.


Commander is our biggest player base, therefore we are adding Commander to every night that we are open.

Dave is still at Pat’s. Come and meet him and get some cards, playmats and prints signed.


Dave just got his playmats in. He has 12 copies of each along with some prints he had made. Here are the mats:


The following playmats brought smiles to my face as the memories of the years went thru my mind. Thank you Dave for giving me these beautiful pieces of art and all the memories. It is Magic’s 30th anniversary and my 30th anniversary of owning a store.


Artist Dave Greco will be at the store at 1 p.m. on Saturda. Stop by and check out his prints and playmats. Have Dave sign this and put in a year. Maybe your favorite year.
Little story about this Playmat. LogAnn’s favorite creature is Kobolds so I had Dave add them. Jim, as most of you know loves elves and Jesse (who still works for me when one of my other guy’s is sick or on vacation), loves vampires.


Artist Dave Greco will be at the store at 1 p.m. on Saturday. Stop by and check out his prints and playmats.
This version of the Elemental has a tail.
A little background on this mat. I wanted Voice of Resurgence tokens and Dave drew her. The original version had the tail and a bare butt. I had a second version made without the tail and a bit of clothes. I love them both.


Artist Dave Greco will be at the store at 1 p.m. on Saturda. Stop by and check out his prints and playmats. This Playmat was also made into tokens.


Artist Dave Greco will be at the store at 1 p.m. on Saturda. Stop by and check out his prints and playmats. I asked Dave to make a piece of art for my dog, Isamaru. He was named after the card Isamaru, Hound of Konda.


Artist Dave Greco will be at the store at 1 p.m. on Saturda. Stop by and check out his prints and playmats. Ok this piece of art has a funny story. Charles was not at Pat’s when the early playmats were made. I asked Dave to make a Playmat with Charles as a pirate. I was surprised when I got this piece of art. Dave you still owe me a Playmat with Charles on it.


Artist Dave Greco will be at the store at 1 p.m. on Saturda. Stop by and check out his prints and playmats. This is the first playmat Dave ever made for me. It’s Pat’s Games fantasy. I love how Dave made me thin.


Artist Dave Greco will be at the store at 1 p.m. on Saturda. Stop by and check out his prints and playmats. This was Dave’s first attempt at the Pat’s Games fantasy scene. I loved it, but I wanted a day scene. Luckily I have both day and night at Pat’s Games.


Artist Dave Greco will be at the store at 1 p.m. on Saturda. Stop by and check out his prints and playmats. This -lay at was designed for making thopter tokens. I just love the colors


Pat’s Games Regional Pro Tour Qualifier is now open for preregistration. Event is capped at 44 Players.


I am thinking of replacing Saturday Booster draft with 2 Headed Giant Sealed. Thoughts?


Unfinity Launch Friday, October 7th and Saturday, October 8th.


Universes Beyond: Warhammer 40,000 - Commander Deck Display (Collector's Edition). The Collection is EXTREMELY limited, some stores didn’t get any. We are getting a lot of calls. Unfortunately we are sold out.


FREE PACK tonight for Jumpstart Jam players. As you know Pat’s Games was chosen a few weeks ago by Wizards of The Coast to test a new format they are considering. We have run two events and got some feedback. Basically it is hard to fix the mana. I want to try to start the event with opening 3 packs instead of 2. I think this will fix the proble. Come help us test and please tell Charles and Ed your thoughts on the format.


I am so happy to tell you that artist, Dave Greco, will be at Pat’s Games on October 7th at 1 p.m. Dave will be bringing artist proofs of his cards, prints and playmats to sell. He will also be signing his cards. I believe he has 6 cards and a token in the new Unfinity set of which only 1 card has been spoiled. Dave did most of the art in my store. He also did our logo. We will have 9 playmats that Dave drew for Pat’s Games available for purchase. I had 12 of each playmat made. Come join us for a “Meet The Artist” day at Pat’s.


It’s time to preorder the Universes Beyond Commander Decks.


Available For Preorder Unfinity Draft and Collector Booster Boxes.
