All the major MTG players will gather in Seattle for a closed-to-the-public Pro Tour event. The Thunder Junction Pro Tour may not feature a MagicCon festival but it will showcase the best decks in Standard Constructed. Pioneer was the feature format for the first Pro Tour of the 2023-2024 season and Modern Horizons 3 will be featured at the third Pro Tour later this year. And the results of all three tournaments will be displayed this fall through the MTG World Championship
