War of the Spark, the upcoming Magic: The Gathering set, is coming this April but if you're planning to attend Grand Prix London or the second Mythic Championship in MagicFest London, you're probably going to skip the pre-release events for it. 

The official Magic: The Gathering Twitter account announced on Monday that MagicFest London and the second Mythic Championship (formerly Pro Tour) this year will happen in the same weekend (April 26-27) as the pre-release events for War of the Spark. They went on to add that more details will be announced about this eventful weekend later this month. 

Many players from the UK and all over the world are criticizing the decision to schedule MagicFest London on the same weekend as the War of the Spark pre-release because they think that it will affect the pre-release attendance of local game stores.

Check out what others have to say: 

War of the Spark will be released in April 2019. It's the third of a series of consecutive sets set in Ravnica and is said to focus on the epic war between Nicol Bolas and the Gatewatch.
