Hour of Devastation Prerelease

July 8 and 9 @ Your Local Game Grid Store

Event Information


Welcome to the desert oasis of Hour of Devastation, where the return of the God-Pharaoh is upon us! Four hours of observation shall take place hailing his return, followed by a fifth and very final hour.

Join us at your local Game Grid Store for Prerelease events going on all weekend long July 8th and July 9th.

You’ll experience the thrill of opening new cards for the first time, at an event filled with other Magic players who enjoy the game just as much as you. Everything you’ll need to play should be provided as part of your entry fee – you simply show up and play!

You’ll build a 40-card minimum deck using the contents of a themed Prerelease pack. This play format is called “Sealed Deck.”

After you build your deck, you’ll be randomly paired with another player for a best-two-of-three match. Each round, you’ll report who won and be paired up with a new player. If you do well, you may get additional booster packs as prizes!

Prerelease Pack Contents

  • 4 Hour of Devastation booster packs, 2 Amonkhet booster packs
  • Randomized date-stamped premium promo card
  • Themed spindown life counter
  • The Five Hours card to complete for rewards
  • Text insert with deck-building advice
