Standard format tournament on Friday, May 10 (League Week 6)
Hi, Star Wars: Destiny fans!
Starting this April, we will be launching Star Wars: Destiny Store Seasons!
On every Friday in April to June, we will have events that will range from draft to Standard constructed and even Infinite. Depending on the number of wins you get in an event, you will garner points and will have a running tally and season ranking at Geeky Villain. At the end of the season, all points will be tallied and the season winners (and perhaps even a few runner-ups) will get amazing prizes!
There is more to come, but we’re wanting to start out with a bang—the first Season Championship Prize will be a brand new Star Wars Ultimate Vinyl Collection 12P and a Bluetooth turntable!
I hope many of you are as excited as we are!
Please inquire with questions that you may have.
Thank you very much, and as always, please Stay Geeky!
