Labyrinth's Month of Modern is a massive month-long celebration of one of our favorite Magic formats. We are bringing back by popular demand our month long tournament series structure. We will be playing Modern every Tuesday in March as part of one continuous tournament series.

The first three weeks are Open Tournaments. All players are welcome. The final week is our Invitational Finale. Place well in one of the Open Tournaments to secure your invite and your chance to win the title of Labyrinth's Modern Master.

There will be prizes galore throughout the month, including one of our largest ever payouts. Bring a new modern player with you to one of the open tournaments, and you'll get extra chances for invites and prizes. (For full tournament rules, see below.)

Prizes are subject to change.

LABYRINTH'S MONTH OF MODERN TOURNAMENT RULES

ii. The top four finishers will earn invites to the Invitational Tournament. Invites are non-transferable and an individual player can only earn one invite. If an individual player would earn a second invite by placing in the top four of two Open Tournaments, the second invite will be given to the next highest finisher in that event.

Wild Card Invitations will be awarded by random drawing.
