Gold Rush: Mythic Madness

Stake your claim in the Star City, because Gold Rush: Mythic Madness—one of our most popular Magic: The Gathering event promotions of all-time—is BACK!

For December's SCG CON Winter, we'll be setting aside three (yes, 3!) copies of each card ever printed at the Mythic rarity (including those in Ultimate Masters!), placing each individual card into it's own Gold Rush: Mythic Madness envelope, then randomly distributing the envelopes to fans who participate in various SCG CON Winter-related events and activities including, but not limited to, all of the following!

Mobile Device Charging

Charge your mobile devices for free all weekend long at the AT&T mobile device charging booth!


SCG CON Winter offers a number of opportunities for fans to play Magic with some of the game’s most popular personalities and content creators! Be sure to visit the designated spellslinging area often, as many others will be jumping in throughout the weekend and looking for an opponent to battle!
