Eight players compete for $70,000 in Saturday's Magic Online Champions Showcase and playing from Manila in the Philippines, Nicholas Price will be competing.
"The MOCS is one of the most challenging and exclusive tournaments in Magic. Playing in one of these events is the culmination of my four years playing competitive events on Magic Online and learning from some of the best players in the world," Price says.
Price qualified through the Pioneer Showcase, winning with Sultai Delirium, but he was a matter of seconds from missing out on the qualification.
"During my semifinal match in the tournament that qualified me for this event, my home internet died, and I timed out for almost exactly enough time to lose the match. I managed to hook my laptop up to my phone hotspot, and I won the semifinal with about three seconds left on my clock."
