As part of our initiatives to give you more ways to play at home, we wanted to provide options for you to play at the highest levels for competitive stakes. Therefore, in light of the changes to the tabletop Players Tour Qualifiers announced earlier, we're adding a new series of qualifiers to Magic Online to provide additional ways for players to compete and qualify for upcoming Players Tour events: Magic Online Super Qualifiers. These online events will run alongside existing Magic Online Qualifiers and will continue to invite players to Players Tour Series 2 events.
The Super Qualifiers have an enhanced set of prizes, including Players Tour invitations for both first and second place. These limited-run events are separate from the Magic Online Challenge Showcase and open to all Magic Online players. These events will be available on a regular schedule, with the first event available beginning later today, March 20, at 3 p.m. PDT!
Formats and schedules for Super Qualifiers will change from week to week and will be available on the Magic Online events schedule. The formats for the first wave of Super Qualifiers are as follows:

Updated March 24, 2020: And in order to make the Super Qualifiers as exciting as possible, we’ve added more prizes! Players who earn 65th place through 128th place will receive 100 Play Points. These prizes are in addition to those previously announced. And, because we intend this to be a quality of the Super Qualifier events as a whole, we’re retroactively adding these to events that have already concluded! Players who earned these prizes will have them granted before the end of this week.
