For the first time ever, you can fight your way to your local Regional Championships and the Pro Tour through playing the VML!

There will be three seasons of the VML during this competitive year, which all lead into our brand new capstone event: the VML Championships.

The top 8 players from each season will qualify to the VML Championships, which will be a 24-player invite-only event. The top 2 players at the VML Championships will receive an invitation to the following Magic: The Gathering Pro Tour!
