This morning, Wizards revealed that it would hold an invite-only “25th Anniversary Exhibition Event” during the 25th Anniversary Pro Tour next August in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Could this be the long-awaited return of the Magic Invitational, which was discontinued in 2007? Unfortunately, Wizards won’t say for now.

In the same article, Wizards also announced changes to how the Pro Players Club will calculate a player’s level. We already knew that the Club is changing to a cycle system next season, with each cycle covering the length of a single set. Originally, Club levels would be determined by a player’s top three results from each of the last four cycles. But with today’s announcement, Wizards is changing the formula to include a player’s top 12 finishes from the last four cycles combined—making it easier for players that don’t consistently have Grand Prix in their region.
