Special Happenings at Nationals 2022

Now that we have those details out of the way, let’s talk about some of the exciting things happening at Nationals 2022! First off, each day at the completion of any of the official categories, each player will receive a participation promo! Please check out our announcement on Land of Redemption to see card images.

The Gospel of Christ phase 2 is set to release at Nationals! If everything goes as planned we will be using these brand new cards for the booster draft event! Gospel of Christ phase 2 will feature angels, empty tomb Heroes, nativity Heroes, thieves, Herods and orange demons.

We have an amazing line up of borderless, alternate art winner promos coming to Nationals 2022!!! Prizes for the top 3 places will be made up of 3 cards amazing alternate art cards: Treacherous Land, King of Tyrus and a Lost Soul that you get to help us choose! Cast your vote for “Awake”, “Escape”, “Exiles”, “Humble” or “Prosperity”!

It takes a lot of people and many hours of labor to pull off a successful Nationals! As such Cactus Game Design is generously allowing us to give out a sharp looking alternate art Music Leader promo to Nationals workers!

Side Events
All of that is really exciting! But the most exciting part might be the side events!!!

With the change in official formats this year, maybe you’re one of those players that misses using your classic cards. Maybe it’s for nostalgia reasons or maybe it’s because that’s the bulk of your collection. Whatever the reason, we have an amazing line up of side events scheduled for you! Plus, an exclusive side event promo that you can only obtain from these side events!

Players will be able to sign up for any of the side events listed below. There will be a small registration fee to enter each side event. As soon as any side event reaches 8 people it will begin. Events will use the minimum number of Swiss rounds required to determine a winner (3 for 2-player categories and 2 for multi-player categories). Each side event category can be run multiple times provided there are at least 8 players interested! Winners will receive the exclusive side event promo, but can only receive one promo from each category.

Type 1 – 2 Player Classic
Type 1 – MP Classic
Type 1 Teams – Classic
Type 1 – LoC Constructed
Type 2 – 2 Player Classic
Type 2 – MP Classic

In addition to the categories above, we may also include these side event categories if there is interest:

Type 1 – Gospel of Christ Constructed
Type 1 – “Block” Constructed (includes FoM, PoC, LoC and GoC)
Type half
Type NW
Cube Draft
Garbage Sealed

I know what you’re thinking… what is this exclusive side event promo you keep mentioning?! Once again, we need your help deciding! We have far too many really cool options of borderless, alternate art promos to choose from! The Redemption Elders narrowed it down to 3 cards and will let the community vote to select which one we use! Cast your vote again, this time for either Foreign Wives, Jonah or Storehouse!

Let us know that you’re coming! Please take a minute to pre-register for the 2022 Redemption National tournament by clicking the button below.
