Standard and Booster draft|
Mythic Championship Cleveland 2019, the first Mythic Championship since the branding change from "Pro Tour", will take place on February 22-24, 2019, in Cleveland, Ohio, United States.
Few structural changes to the Pro Tour were announced with the name change to Mythic Championship; the event retained its core structure of 16 rounds of tabletop Magic, including Standard and Booster draft. Prize structure and qualification methods were also more or less the same. One change, however, was that after Mythic Championship London 2019, an invitation no longer includes paid airfare to the event. Instead, every player in attendance wins at least $500, regardless of performance. This increased to prize payout to approximately $500,000, assuming an event size of 500; however, it does not necessarily represent a net increase in overall player compensation. This effect was not in place for Mythic Championship Cleveland, for which players still received paid airfare despite the increased prize purse.
