Every Saturday, starting November 26, 2016 until December 17, 2016, there will be a Standard Showdown at local game shops all over the world. You can win special prize promotional booster packs through undefeated play and other prizes determined by the game shop. To showcase the Standard format, the tournaments will be Swiss events and you bring your current Standard legal decks.

Each store will receive 40 booster prizes, each containing a premium card from a currently legal Standard set, including Zendikar Expeditions and Kaladesh Inventions, not including double-faced cards. They will also contain two non-premium cards, that are either a rare or a mythic rare, from Battle for Zendikar on up to Kaladesh.

Talk to your local game shops about hosting a Standard Showdown if they are not doing so themselves. Good luck to all you players attending.

Play on players, play on like it’s your last day on Earth.

As always, thanks for reading my blog!

Didn't realize it can be determined by game shops, thought it was just by winning.  Makes it more enticing for new players or someone who doesn't have a tier one Standard deck to show up and try to win.

That's what my game store would do - or open the packs and sell the singles
