We have seen the future of competitive Magic, and it is Regional Championships. The Pro Tour is back in a big way, and with it comes a surprising Pioneer renaissance. The lynchpin of the new system is an event that has not existed before: the Regional Championships, which will feed each Pro Tour three times per year. Part Nationals, part regional PTQ, part Magic Fest, Regional Championships are by far the most exciting component of the new organized play system. 

In this episode of Faithless Brewing, Cavedan and Morde analyze the new structure and explain why Regional Championships are a very good thing. We also take a look at six early previews from Streets of New Capenna, and report on our testing results with Fable of the Mirror-Breaker in Modern and Pioneer.
