World Magic Cup Commemorative playmat!

Hello Magic fans!

As many of you know (and now the rest of you will) Legion Events has been working with the Magic Pro Tour for the last year and a half coordinating retail and singles sales. We’ve brought you those sweet sweet Mana symbol hoodies and some pretty awesome short run T-shirts available exclusively at the PT.  We’ve also been producing a commemorative playmat available for purchase at each PT stop.  Starting with Portland we got permission to do some pretty awesome melding designs integrating magic art with real world locations.  The Photoshop time on these is pretty intense but we’ve had some really sweet results.

We just got approval on our Barcelona mat (for the World Magic Cup) and would love to share it with you all!  Neal has about 15 hours into this one. There’s a small bit of finishing touchups to do (you probably wont see it in this image, just super fine detail we want to take care of before it goes to print at high res) but i’m incredibly proud of the work he did on this one.  The task seemed near impossible when we saw they art we were given to use.  I’ll post a pic of the original art side by side so you can see the work!

First, the original piece.

When we got it there was a lot of groaning, there isn’t a lot of flexibility here for putting in known landmarks or skylines.. then Neal found the perfect picture to meld and it ended up so amazing! The pic we’re using is a “night-scape”. It was the only real way to get the city to pop at this distance/perspective. The sky was darkened to make it feel like early evening. He needed the light to help contrast and it allowed us to be able to see the famed Barcelona Cathedral, which is lit up and glowing on the hill way at the back of the city, between the 2 Eldrazi. The viewpoint is from the Plaza de Espana.

I present to you the WMC Barcelona Commemorative playmat in all it’s glory!



These will be for sale at the WMC Magic cup on a 1 per person per day basis for the cost of €25 (includes VAT). There will only be 400 of these playmats made. So they are also incredibly rare! Come see us in Barcelona to get yours (as well as the mana symbol hoodies!)


MC8 Updates

Hey all! As you can probably see, I’ve ACTUALLY gotten some time to give the cruise page some updating and such. I’ve put a tentative schedule up on the website at I will make the plan (and extras like playmats and Tshirts) available on the website starting in December. The Tournament package will be $100 as usual and will include all events (and if you opt out of playing in one of the sealed events, you can get your 6 packs instead) and prizes for the events including TRIVIA NIGHT! woohoo! More details on the various events as we get closer to the Cruise!

I’m working with the Fabulous Lainey Melnick to get the group excursion assigned and I think based on the previous time we were supposed to go to Belize (and didn’t) that a bunch of folks were planning on cave tubing, we could probably have lainey set up another group excursion for those who want to do that as well. She might be able to get us a break going direct to the excursion companies instead of contracting through Carnival.

Interested in that? let me know and we’ll put it together!
