Our next piece of power—an Unlimited Mox Jet—will be awarded once we hit 6,000 preregistrations. When will we get there? Send a Tweet to @ChannelFireball using the hashtag #GPVegas with the time and date you think we’ll hit 6,000 and we’ll see who’s the best prognosticator around!

Moving on, let’s talk about some of the other cool stuff happening at Grand Prix Las Vegas:

Bounty Events and Meet & Greet – Battle and Chat with Pros!

We here at ChannelFireball know just how fun it is to hang out with the pros—and how good it feels when we’re able to beat one of them in a game of Magic. At Grand Prix Las Vegas, there are a few ways you can get these wonderful experiences yourself!

Let’s start by talking about the Bounty Events. We’ve got one on Thursday and one on Friday—both happen at 6 p.m. They’re $60-entry Modern Masters 2015 Sealed Deck events, which is a pretty good value considering there are also prizes. Here’s the structure:

3 Rounds of Swiss. Everyone receives a foil promo card.
3 wins: 60 Prize Tix + 4 assorted foil promos.
2 wins: 20 Prize Tix + 3 assorted foil promos.
1 win: 10 Prize Tix + 2 assorted foil promos.
0 wins: 1 assorted foil promo.

Beat a Channel Fireball Bounty Player & Win 100 Prize Tix!

That last bit is the super awesome part. We’re entering some of our pro players into these events—you might get randomly paired against one of them over the course of the event. Beat one of them and you’ll earn 100 extra Prize Tix! Who will you have to beat? Well, we’ve got lineups for Thursday and Friday right here—and who knows? We may add more!

If you’re as excited as we are about those lineups, you can preregister for the Thursday Bounty Event here and the Friday Bounty Event here. Remember, these events only have room for 400 players each, so preregister now!

If you’re more interested in meeting the pros than beating them at Magic, we’ve also got the Meet & Greet on Friday night, open to all Platinum Planeswalker registrants! I mentioned the Meet & Greet last week, but given that we have more players confirmed now, I thought I should mention it once again. In addition to some of our artists and other big names in Magic, we’ll have lots of pros on hand as well. The details of the event are still under wraps, but the names sure aren’t—here are the pros we have confirmed so far:

Andrew Cuneo
Ben Stark
Conley Woods
David Ochoa
Eric Froehlich
Jon Finkel
Josh Utter-Leyton
