Grand Prix TBD has been determined after all.

If you want to get the free sleeves and deckbox, you need to pre-register this week.

The GP Las Vegas registration website has it all. Tempting offers, flashy graphics, even a sweet video to entice you to come to the event and test their 10,000 person limit.

WTF Dude, did you just throw an Emrakul?

As always, there are registration tiers, but this is the first time we've had so many.

There's "peasant" level which is a mere $75

General Registration - $75

The General Registration package includes the following:

-Entry into Grand Prix Las Vegas – build a sealed deck with 6 packs of Modern Masters 2015!
-Exclusive Grand Prix Ultra-Pro Playmat featuring art from Modern Masters 2015!
-Grand Prix Foil Promo Griselbrand
-Set of ChannelFireball Tokens
-ChannelFireball lifepad and pen
-Exclusive Grand Prix Las Vegas 2015 Token signed by Luis Scott-Vargas!

A little more gets you the sleep-in special, which is legit if you're partying in Las Vegas. Even if you go bed at a decent hour, don't expect the fraternity party or the guy banging his mistress in the adjoining hotel room to keep it down.

Premium Registration - $100

The Premium Registration package includes the following:

-Entry into Grand Prix Las Vegas – build a sealed deck with 6 packs of Modern Masters 2015!
-Exclusive Grand Prix Ultra-Pro Playmat featuring art from Modern Masters 2015!
-Grand Prix Foil Promo Griselbrand
-Set of ChannelFireball Tokens
-ChannelFireball lifepad and pen
-Exclusive Grand Prix Las Vegas 2015 Token signed by Luis Scott-Vargas!
-Sleep-In Special
-Sealed Pool Pre-Registration

For another $50 you get, in my estimation, the best value

Planeswalker Registration - $150

The Planeswalker Registration package includes the following:

-Entry into Grand Prix Las Vegas – build a sealed deck with 6 packs of Modern Masters 2015!
-Exclusive Grand Prix Ultra-Pro Playmat featuring art from Modern Masters 2015!
-Grand Prix Foil Promo Griselbrand
-Set of ChannelFireball Tokens
-ChannelFireball lifepad and pen
-Exclusive Grand Prix Las Vegas 2015 Token signed by Luis Scott-Vargas!
-Sleep-In Special

-Exclusive Grand Prix Las Vegas Deck Box featuring art from Modern Masters 2015!
-Exclusive Grand Prix Las Vegas Sleeves featuring art from Modern Masters 2015!
-ChannelFireball Stainless Steel Water Bottle
-ChannelFireball Drawstring Bag

The additional $100 for the "Platinum" tier is pretty hard to justify

Platinum Planeswalker Registration - $250

Our most luxurious registration package ever! Supplies are limited - get your spot before we run out!

The Platinum Planeswalker Registration package includes the following:

-Entry into Grand Prix Las Vegas – build a sealed deck with 6 packs of Modern Masters 2015!
-Exclusive Grand Prix Ultra-Pro Playmat featuring art from Modern Masters 2015!
-Grand Prix Foil Promo Griselbrand
-Set of ChannelFireball Tokens

-Exclusive Grand Prix Las Vegas 2015 Token signed by Luis Scott-Vargas!
-Sleep-In Special
-Sealed Pool Pre-Registration
-Access to the Planeswalker Lounges
-Exclusive Grand Prix Las Vegas Deck Box featuring art from Modern Masters 2015!
-Exclusive Grand Prix Las Vegas Sleeves featuring art from Modern Masters 2015!
-ChannelFireball Stainless Steel Water Bottle
-ChannelFireball Drawstring Bag
-Access to the Platinum Planeswalker Lounge
-Exclusive Meet & Greet on Thursday evening with artists and members of Team CFB!
-A ChannelFireball Playmat signed by members of Team CFB!
-A second Grand Prix Las Vegas Deck Box!
-A second set of Grand Prix Las Vegas Sleeves!

If you're not a Channel Fireball sycophant, you're basically getting the $150 tier, plus some extra sleeves. If you want to pay $100 to pretend LSV is a Hollywood A lister and wait in line to shake his hand, that's cool. Make sure to hoverhand when you take a picture with him.

If you don't have a flight or a hotel picked out, don't worry - you've got months and months. But I would register soon, and I'd figure out which tier suits you. The higher the registration numbers get in the lead-up to the event, the more hyped everyone will get, and hype is what we want.

One thought on “It’s Never Too Early

  1. I’ve actually got a few emails in with CFB to try and determine if the top tier will be worth it. Specifically, I asked if there would be food and drink available in he premium lounge and if there would be a charge, and if the artist meet-and-greet would have time for autographs or if there would be a time set aside for the top tier guests to get some kind of advantage worth an extra $100. When I have that information, I will share it on the forums.
