The only thing better than playing Magic is playing it on a team with your friends, and ChannelFireball is giving you that very opportunity at GP Mexico City 2017! The main event will test your team’s skills as you build three decks from twelve packs – eight Aether Revolt, four Kaladesh – and battle your way through the field of up to 399 other teams. If you’re not a Limited aficionado, or if your team can’t make the trip, don’t worry – we’ll have plenty of side events for you, so pick up a Fanatic Package and play all weekend! No matter how you plan to spend the weekend, you’ll want to spend all three days with us, as you’ll need that time to visit all our vendor and artist booths, meet the Pro Players, check out the side events, and more. Space in the main event is limited to 400 teams, so preregister now to secure your spot!

Playmat Information

Official Grand Prix Magic Playmats

Grand Prix Mexico City is a Team Limited event, so we’ll have not one, not two, but THREE exclusive Ultra PRO playmats with beautiful art! Our three mats for this event feature the following pieces of art from Aether Revolt:

Deadeye Harpooner by Ryan Pancoast
Maverick Thopterist by Zack Stella
Treasure Keeper by James Paick

Each team in the main event will get all three mats, so you can distribute them among your players as you see fit. Additionally, if you register for the VIP package, you will get another full set of all three mats for yourself!
