March of the Machine — Magic Events

March of the Machine Events at Noble Knight Games

Join us for the final battle of ages against the Phyrexian invasion!

With the Multiverse already in ruins, March of the Machine marks the final chapter in the epic world-spanning Phyrexia story arc. The last remaining champions from your favorite planes across Magic history must band together and make a final last stand to defeat the sinister Phyrexian threat, or bear witness to the total annihilation of all of their worlds…

What to bring to our Magic Events

Important! DCI numbers are no longer used for Wizards of the Coast organized play for Magic the Gathering.

Players now register for events through the use of the Magic Companion App. This app provides registration tools, direct round pairings, results, and more. Use of this app is not 100% required, but is strongly recommended for a smooth Magic experience due to the new program for administering Magic events.

A code will be shown on the TV in our Gaming Hall prior to each event. Enter this code in the App to enlist yourself in the event roster.  If you do not have access to use of this app, please let our judges know so they can add you manually.

What else to bring? Noble Knight Games will provide land cards for sealed and draft events. We suggest bringing a spin-down die or life counter, tokens, play mat, sleeves, and a deck box for your newly drafted cards. These are not required, but are suggested for ease of play and protection of your cards.  If you need any of these, our storefront team will be happy to help you pick some out. We have plenty of options!
