Announcing the BCDL Open 2 taking place Saturday July 29, 2023, at Brewdog Brewery and Hotel! The first BCDL Open was a success so we’re doing it again. BCDL is proud to be the large Legacy event organizer allowing playtest cards making Legacy available to everyone!

Coverage - Coverage team to be announced later.

Entry - $145 + fees assessed online by MTG Melee. Each player entry includes lunch and buffalo chicken dip. There is no signup option that does not include lunch. A change from the last BCDL Open is that the event will be open to participants 18 or older as of the day of the event. However, as this event is at an alcohol establishment you must be 21 years of age or older to purchase alcohol.

Signup - Signup will be exclusively through MTG Melee at the link below through MTG Melee. The tournament will be capped at 128 players.

I need to give a final headcount to Brewdog Brewery by July 19, 2023. Meaning if you do not sign up by then I cannot guarantee you a spot. If you need to drop after that date, I cannot refund your entry unless your spot is sold to someone else. I can assist you with selling your spot. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO SIGN UP.

Vendors – We’re happy to announce Taitan Games from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area will be joining us again for the event. Thank you to John and his team. Anyone caught “backpack vending” cards will be removed from the event. Anyone caught “backpack vending” cards will be removed from the event.

Side Events – Currently we have no side events planned, but this could change closer to the event or day of if there is enough demand.

To unenroll after you must contact the organizer.

Tournament Administration - Pairings, decklists, and match results through MTG Melee. Decklist submission is due before the beginning of round 1. There will be judges on hand for all of your questions regarding rulings, playtest cards, and anything else that may be required.

Playtest card policy – BCDL will loan playtest cards to players wishing to borrow these in lieu of real Magic the Gathering cards from BCDL’s Playtest Library. This is a change from smaller BCDL Community events where printed playtest cards are allowed. There will be an online form closer to the event to fill out and playtest cards will be picked up the morning of the event during check-in at the scorekeeper table. These cards are indistinguishable in size and weight from regular Magic cards, but will not use a Magic card back and different art. All cards must be either authentic Magic cards or cards from the playtest library.

Playtest cards will be given to you in smoke perfect fits and must be used in fully opaque sleeves. It is your responsibility to confirm your sleeves are fully opaque and playtest cards are not identifiable through sleeves. Judges will be happy to examine your deck during check in before play begins. We recommend using Dragon Shield Dual Matte sleeves. No printed playtest cards for this event. A cash deposit of $20 is required and will be returned to you upon return of the playtest cards.

The cards currently available for loan are: 1) Savannah; 2) Underground Sea; 3) Tropical Island; 4) Volcanic Island; 5) Tundra; 6) Plateau; 7) Scrubland; 8) Taiga; 9) Bayou; 10) Badlands; 11) Gaea’s Cradle; 12) Lion’s Eye Diamond; 13) Grim Monolith; 14) Force of Will; 15) Null Rod; 16) Mox Diamond; 17) The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale; 18) City of Traitors; 19) Intuition; 20) Aluren; 21) Personal Tutor; 22) Chains of Mephistopheles; and 23) The Abyss. If you’re interested in a card not on this list let me know and I’ll get playtest copies for you to use.

The link to the playtest request form is here -

A link to the request form will be posted closer to the event.

Covid-19 Safety – There will be no requirement that participants submit proof of vaccination, negative test, or mask unless required by government authority or the venue itself. Currently, no such requirements are in place. For full details see our announcement dated 6/10/23 here:

Alcohol – Alcohol will be available for purchase from the brewery and is not included with entry. There will also be a partition separating the main play area from a small bar set up in the event space. The small bar area will have some tables, but alcohol will not be allowed into the main play space during the event other than at lunch and after the conclusion of Swiss rounds.

Schedule – Check in will begin at 9 am with the first round beginning at 10 am. Lunch will be served between rounds 3 and 4 with an hour break before the beginning of round 4. While this is fluid due to the nature of tournaments, I anticipate food to be out around 12:30 pm - 12:45 pm with the lunch break being approximately 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. It will be your responsibility to be prepared for the start of each round. An announcement will be made likely before round 3 regarding timing for lunch.

Lunch – There will be a lunch break after round 3 and before round 4 begins. Lunch will be a taco bar with carnitas pork and beef brisket protein options and black bean spread as a vegetarian option. Tacos will be served with flour or corn tortillas, an assortment of toppings, chips and salsa, and Mexican street corn. Brewdog will prepare and serve buffalo chicken dip! While it won’t be our traditional recipe, we’re excited to continue this tradition.

The organizer has agreed to pay out prizes immediately after the tournament has ended.

Prize Pool - Minimum of $5,000 in prizes, at 100 players $6,000 in prizes, at 128 players $7,500. All prizes will be paid out in Legacy staples. Brewdog will not allow us to compete for cash prizes as doing so is considered gambling and a violation of their liquor license so prizes must be for cards. The current prize pool is below and will increase at 100 paid players and again at 128 paid players! The deadline for paid players to increase the prize pool will be July 19, 2023 to allow me time to secure additional prizes. 1st Place – Name on the Golden Chicken Trophy and 3 Revised Volcanic Island (3 of at least Moderately Played condition) 2nd Place – 1 Revised Volcanic Island (of at least Moderately Played condition) 3rd and 4th Place – 1 Revised Underground Sea (of at least Moderately Played condition) 5th – 8th Place – 1 Revised Badlands (of at least Moderately Played condition) 9th – 16th Place – To be determined.

A note regarding the TBD status of prizes 9th Place through 16th Place. I want to see what cards may be released in Commander Masters as it may affect pricing of staples at this price point which would allow me to purchase more cards. I’m hoping to be able to prize down further if there are enough entries to facilitate it. Updated details on prizing at 9th – 16th will be provided at a later date.
