MDSS Toronto This Weekend!


The biggest Mana Deprived Super Series tournament is coming to Toronto this weekend. The tournament organizers are putting up a 5K prize pool for the main event along with a foil Jace, the Mind Sculptor for the Legacy side event.

They also rented the entire floor of the Primrose Hotel, so you can expect an excellent tournament experience. Let’s also not skimp on the fact that this event will be head judged by none other than Kelly Ackerman!

MDSS Toronto 2013′s Bounty Player

One of the unique characteristics of the MDSS is our bounty system. For each tournament, a bounty player is selected and if you beat them during the Swiss rounds, you win a booster box of the latest set! The bounty player is equipped with 2 booster boxes to lose.

For this tournament, we have none other than our very own KYT as the bounty player. Some of you might know him as the owner and content manager of Others might know him as one of the co-hosts of the Eh Team podcast. Get ready to take his boxes away from him!
