Earlier this year, Wizards of the Coast introduced the new casual Magic: The Gathering format called Brawl, which lets players build a deck around a specific legendary creature or planeswalker from the Standard card pool. Now, it looks like Wizards of the Coast has plans to give more support for the new format.

Today, Senior Magic Designer Gavin Verhey has announced the Multiplayer Brawl Championship. Players will be able to play in a Brawl Championship event in Grand Prix Richmond later this month, from August 30 to September 2. And participants will receive this cool Adeliz, the Cinderwind playmat:


The Brawl Championship will be five rounds in pods of four, and every round, the winner of the pod will win 60 prize wall tickets while the other three players will each get 20 prize wall tickets. After the five rounds, there will be a Top 4 playoff with a total of 2,800 prize tickets between the four players. A booster pack is worth about 10 tickets so that's a big prize pool!

Finally, the winner of the Top 4 will take home an exclusive Brawl Championship trophy.

It would be spectacular if there's actual video coverage for this event. I still haven't tried Brawl but it looks fun and I'd probably be motivated to play it more if local card shops would support the format more.

Do you play Brawl? Do you think it's a fun format? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
