With a total prize pool of $750,000 on the line, 68 of the best Magic: The Gathering players from around the world are gathering in Las Vegas for Mythic Championship V this weekend.
Competing in MTG Arena, Mythic Championship V is being streamed from Oct. 18 at 11am CT to Oct. 20 on Magic’s Twitch channel.
This is the fifth largest tournament of the year, with only three more Mythic Championships on the schedule before Worlds. There’s a lot on the line for the 32 Magic Pro League (MPL) players competing this weekend.
