List of Magic: The Gathering Pro Tour events

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of all Magic: The Gathering Pro Tour events.[1][2][3] Pro Tours are professional, invite-only tournaments featuring large cash prizes. The World Championships were considered a Pro Tour from 1996 to 2011, but were discontinued in 2012. When the World Championship was reintroduced in 2013 it was changed to a smaller scale non-Pro Tour event, though.

Usually three Pro Tours are held each year, but in the past there have been as many as seven. The first Pro Tour was held in New York City in 1996. Magic Pro Tours award $250,000 in cash prizes with $40,000 being awarded to the winner alone. Invitations are usually earned by winning a qualifier tournament. Other means of qualifying include, finishing high in a Grand Prix, finishing in the Top 25 of the previous Pro Tour, or doing very well in multiple Grand Prix and Pro Tours in a season.

By default, the detailed table below, updated as of Pro Tour Theros 2013, is sorted in descending order, first by number of PTs won, then by number of winning players, then by number of PTs hosted, and finally by alphabetical order of the country.

The totals for each of the three columns will be different from each other, for several reasons:

  • Team Pro Tours feature multiple winners, possibly from different countries.
  • The same individual may win multiple Pro Tours.
  • Future Pro Tours will already have been scheduled at a host city but not yet have a winner.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Beginning with the 2012 Pro Tour season, Wizards of the Coast began naming Pro Tours with the title of the expansion set released at around the same time as the Pro Tour. If the name of the expansion set has not yet been announced, the expansion set codename is used instead.
  2. ^ Pro Tour New York 1996 used a modified Standard format wherein each decklist had to include at least 5 cards of each set in Standard.
