What's the difference between "Traditional" events and other formats?
Traditional events and play queues use a best-of-three format, and use a rules and ban list that aligns with tabletop magic. All other events use a best-of-one format.
What's the difference between "Ranked" play and non-ranked formats?
Ranked play is for our competitive events and play queues. Players can advance their Constructed or Limited rank through playing in Ranked formats, and the top players from each season qualify for the respective Mythic Championship Qualifier Weekend.
