MAGIC THE GATHERING PEASANT DRAFT (Modern)
Hosted by Geek & Buy Staff as part of the event, we’re happy to be able to offer a free to enter Magic: The Gathering draft. The card pool comes from sets of all ages, so could include cards from any set!
The draft theme format is PEASANT, so the draft packs will each contain only Commons, Uncommons and non-basic Common/Uncommon Land. Additionally, a Peasant deck may contain no more than 5 Uncommons. The rest must be commons and land. For rarity purposes, a card that has historically been both Common and Uncommon counts as Common.
This is designed as a fun entry-level non-competitive format for the day. Whatever cards you pick while drafting are yours to keep after the event!
**UPDATE** with affiliation with MARQUEE MODELS, the draft is now officially a SANCTIONED event and will earn you play points with the Wizards Play Network. Bring your DCI number with you if you have one, else we can sign you up on the day!
MARQUEE MODELS has kindly offered a selection of MTG promotional foils and boosters as prize support for entrants. You will also be able to see Marquee Models as a trader on the day to stock up on more cards and games.
Entry to the draft is FREE, though to guarantee your place we recommend booking in advance. Contact Geek & Buy directly at
to book your place. You can additionally fill in the SIGN-UP-FORM, and email it to us to prebook your space, or simply bring one along on the day (we’ll have extra printed if you just wish to turn up). Basic land will be provided if needed, unless you prefer to bring and use your own. We request you provide your own life counters and tokens.
The draft will cater for up to 16 players, schedule as follows:
11.00 All entrants need to check in or be registered at the G&B Control desk no later than this time.
11.15 Draft and Deck Construction. 3 draft packs allocated per entrant. You have approximately 45 minutes to complete three whole draft rounds. You will then use those to construct a deck of at least 40 cards including land. Land is unlimited. Any unused cards serve as your sideboard between games.
12.30 Best of three swiss-drawn matches announced and begin. There will be three rounds of matches, each best of three having up to 45 minutes allocated.
3.45 Tournament ends. Rankings announced and prizes awarded.
This is a CASUAL event and not DCI sanctioned.
All other match usual rulings and game etiquette will apply, though that will be covered again in brief on the day with a handout, along with how to actually draft. A simple guide can be watched here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mks4PaVFM_4
