Description[edit | edit source]

The partial 2020 Players Tour Season was supposed to feature two Mythic Invitationals: Mythic Invitational – Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths on May 14–17, 2020, and Mythic Invitational – Core 2021 on July 23–26, 2020.

Both of these events were canceled due to the necessary Coronavirus pandemic rescheduling, and replaced by a single event in August. At the same time the Mythic Invitational – Zendikar Rising planned for the 2020–21 Players Tour Season was cancelled. The prize pool was reduced from 3 x $750,000 to $250,000. The date for the Mythic Invitational was later moved from August to September.[2]

The Mythic Invitational 2020 will not be played for Mythic Points, and therefore doesn't impact MPL or Rivals invitations for the 2020–21 Players Tour Season.[3]

Contestants[edit | edit source]

  • All MPL and Rivals League members
  • All players who earned qualification for the cancelled May Mythic Invitational (Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths)
  • Discretionary invitations as determined by Wizards of the Coast
  • All players who were qualifying for the cancelled October Mythic Invitational (Zendikar Rising)
  • 10-win competitors from May and June 2020 Mythic Qualifiers, followed by:
    • Competitors invited to the Magic Rivals League based on total Mythic Points earned for the partial 2020 Players Tour Season
    • The next Top 8 Mythic Point leaderboard competitors

Format[edit | edit source]

The Mythic Invitational will use the following structure:

All players with 12 or more match points after day 1 will advance to day 2

    • Day 2: 7 Rounds of Historic Constructed
  • Top 8: Historic Constructed

The Top 16 players will qualify for the 2020 Season Grand Finals.
