Grand Prix Lyon

Join forces with pirates, dinosaurs, and best of all, your friends at Grand Prix Lyon! The main event will be Ixalan Team Limited, so bring a crew of three and get ready to battle for treasure – trophies, prizes, and accolades! For those who prefer solo adventures, we’ll have an expansive side events schedule featuring Standard, Modern, Legacy, and Limited side events alongside wackier options like Chaos Draft and Full Box 2HG Sealed. The expedition takes place over three full days, with a fantastic group of artists and vendors in attendance alongside our incredible events schedule. Space is limited, so sign up today!

Playmat Information

Official Grand Prix Lyon Playmats

Grand Prix Lyon is a Team Limited event, so we’ll have not one, not two, but THREE exclusive Ultra PRO playmats with beautiful Magic art! This time around, we’ve got Deadeye Plunderers featuring art by Greg Opalinski, Fathom Fleet Captain featuring art by Matt Stewart, and Headstrong Brute featuring art by Yongjae Choi!

Each team in the main event will get all three mats, so you can distribute them among your players as you see fit. Additionally, if you register for the VIP package, you will get your choice of one GP Lyon playmat, so if your crew stakes their claim to your favorites, you can still get the one you treasure the most!
