We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Magic Player Rewards

Magic Players Awards.jpg

The Magic Player Rewards was a program set up by Wizards of the Coast to promote play in DCI tournaments. It replaced the Legend Membership Program.[1] Promotional cards were sent to eligible players based on the number of DCI-sanctioned tournaments in which they participated.

The first phase of the program, two tokens were earned for every five tournaments in which enrolled members participated. It is important to note that at the time, official tokens were not widely available and had only been included in booster packs of Unglued. Special foil or alternate art cards were awarded for participation in twenty events.

The next phase of the program replaced the tokens with textless, extended or alternate art premium cards. The reward for participation in twenty events remained normal format (not textless) until 2007, when those too became textless and foil.

On November 15th, 2010, Wizards of the Coast discontinued the Magic Player Rewards program. The last set of rewards were the December 2010 mailing.[2] Player rewards were stopped because it was a financially inefficient program.[3]

A list of past player rewards promos is below. The first entry in each year is the reward for participating in twenty events, the rest that follow are the rewards for participation in five events.
