Mythic Championship VII is the third Mythic Championship to be played on MTG Arena in 2019 (and the last before the rebranding to Mythic Invitational). It takes place on December 6-8, 2019 at Thunder Studios in Long Beach, California, United States.[1]

Contestants[edit | edit source]

The tournament was made up of 32 members of the MPL and 36 Challengers. Magic MPL Eldraine Split Division winners Piotr Glogowski, William Jensen, Shota Yasooka and TBA earned automatic advancement to Day Two.

Challengers[edit | edit source]

The top 4 Challengers from Mythic Championship V were granted returning invites; they were 4th place Gabriel Nassif, 5th place Stanislav Cifka, 9th place Kenji Egashira, and 14th place Theo Moutier.

From the MCQW, there were not as many big names from the competitive circuit; the standout names are Chris Kvartek (who just missed on a Top 16 result in MCV), and old-guard players Antonino De Rosa and Frederico Bastos.

Format[edit | edit source]

The format across all three days is Traditional Standard Best-of-Three Constructed.

Day One[edit | edit source]

Players battle it out in Modified Swiss in up to eight rounds. Players who earn six wins automatically advanced to Day Two. Players who lose four matches are eliminated.

The players to qualify on Friday were: TBA

Day Two[edit | edit source]

The Top 12 from Day One join the four Magic Pro League divisional champions from the Eldraine Split in a seven-round Swiss event. All players who reach five match wins move on to Day 3. Additional players will round out the Top 8 for Day 3 based on their tiebreakers in Day 2.

Day Three[edit | edit source]

Eight players compete in a true double-elimination tournament. In the grand finals, the winners in the Upper Bracket and Lower Bracket will face off. The player in the Lower Bracket must win two matches to win the tournament.
