To go or not to go? 2013 World Magic Cup Qualifiers


When I checked the Yearly Planeswalker points a few minutes ago, this was what I saw.

I was very happy to know that I definitely qualified for the World Magic Cup Qualifiers this year. Of course, the qualifiers will be the stepping stones for players who want to represent the Philippines in this year's World Magic Cup (airfareincluded) in Amsterdam. Since the Magic Nationals event was abolished a few years ago, the World Magic Cup Qualifiers was the event that replaced the Magic Nationals in choosing each country's representative(s) for the Magic Worlds, well now, the World Magic Cup. The Philippines performed really well last year reaching the Top 8 in the World Magic Cup, so we are hoping that we can do the same if not better this year. I always wanted to play in the Nationals, as my closest chance to play for the Nationals was a few years ago when I reached the top 8 for the Magic Nationals Qualifiers here in Cebu (the dirty South). Unfortunately, I finished 6th on that event, where only the top 4 are given tickets to participate in the Nationals. This year, it's different, being able to participate in the WMCQ is something that is very worthwhile and gratifying for me as an MTG player. But still, I haven't purchased a ticket for Manila - will I go or not?

Just a short background of what WMCQ is.
