Grand Prix Phoenix

Grand Prix Phoenix is ChannelFireball’s entry in a cross-continental triple GP weekend, so join us! The main event will be Ixalan Limited, with Sealed Deck on Saturday and Draft on Sunday. If Limited isn’t your format of choice, you’ll want to check out our side events schedule, as we’ll be offering Standard, Modern, and Legacy side events (and Limited ones too!) as well as some wackier options. The action takes place over three days and includes a great group of artists and vendors alongside our full schedule of side events. Space is limited, so sign up today!

Meet the ChannelFireball Pros!

Grand Prix Phoenix will feature a group of ChannelFireball’s sponsored professional Magic players who will be on hand to enhance your GP experience! You can meet the pros at the following events on Friday:

Friday, 26 May

Spellslinging

(Time TBD)

Ever wanted to match wits with one of the best players in the world? Well, now you can! On Friday afternoon, our featured professional players will be accepting challengers. Bring a Constructed deck and get ready to battle – if you manage to win, you’ll receive an extra prize. No entry fee is required for Spellslinging; just get in the queue, and when your time comes, make sure to bring your A-game!

Bounty Event

(Time TBD)

On Friday evening, we’ll be hosting the Foiled Again! Bounty Event, a four-round Sealed Deck Event where you can win Prize Tix and foil promo cards based on your record. Some of our pro players will be entering the event as well, so we’ve put a bounty out on them! If you get paired against one of our sponsored pros and you win the match, you’ll receive extra Prize Tix to commemorate your victory.

VIP Party

9:00 PM

The exclusive VIP party is your best chance to mingle with our pro players as well as other Magic celebrities. Anyone who purchases the VIP Upgrade to their registration will be invited to this event, which will feature food, an amazing roster of personalities for our VIPs to meet and talk to, and a LIVE episode of Magic TV!
