After an extended absence, sealed leagues will return to Magic Online starting March 2nd after the scheduled downtime.
The Sealed League, capped initially at 2,000 players, will run through the release of Shadows over Innistrad. If the league is stable and successful, this cap may be increased. After the first league is finished, additional league structures may be explored, including less competitive options.
