The 2020 partial season in Magic: The Gathering is officially underway and there’s only one Regional Players Tour event left before the PT Finals.
Players Tour Brussels and Nagoya showcased Pioneer Constructed on the main stage for the first time last weekend, establishing several of the best decks in the meta. But now, from Feb. 7 to 9, the top Magic players will converge in Phoenix, seeking to earn Players Points for the season, a piece of the $250,000 prize pool, and an invitation to the PT Finals in April.
Is there live coverage of PT Phoenix?
Players Tour Phoneix will have a livestream airing on Twitch for all three days of the tournament via the Magic channel.
Coverage begins on Feb. 7 at 10am CT each day, with a veteran casting crew running the show.
