Special Guests

We’re working on an extensive lineup of special guests and activities at #GPVegas! We’re still putting all the information together, and we’ll add more to this page as we confirm more guests.

Professor Banner

We’ve invited The Professor (of Tolarian Community College fame) to be a featured guest at Grand Prix Las Vegas! The Professor will be participating in promotional events and panels, including a live episode of Dies To Removal, his much-loved video podcast with Wedge from the Mana Source!

Wedge Banner

Speaking of Wedge from the Mana Source, he’ll be here too! In addition to the Dies to Removal live episode, Wedge will be involved in other panels as well as bounty events and spellslinging.

We’ve also invited Seattle Seahawks defensive end Cassius Marsh to be a featured guest! Cassius will be involved in Spellslinging, a Bounty Event, and maybe even a panel or two.

MtA Banner

We’re also happy to have Magic the Amateuring hosts Meghan and Maria at GP Vegas! They’ll be recording a live episode of their podcast at 5 PM on Thursday in the Arena, and it’s going to be a blast.

Command Zone banner

Jimmy Wong and Josh Lee Kwai, the hosts of the Command Zone podcast, will also be at Grand Prix Las Vegas! They’ll be doing spellslinging and a bounty event, and they’ll be hosting a live episode of their podcast at 1 PM on Saturday in the Arena. Come check it out!

Windmill Slam Banner

We’re also proud to play host to the Windmillionaire Game Show, a mainstay of many of our European GP events. Check it out in the Arena at 7 PM on Thursday and Saturday!

Some of our special guests and pro players will be participating in Spellslinging from 12-4 PM on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. No decks are required – we’ll provide packs for Mini Masters!
