The 1995 World Championships for Magic: The Gathering, the second Magic World Championship, were held on 4–6 August at the Red Lion Inn Seattle Airport Hotel in Seattle, USA between August 5–7 1995.

Description[]

This was the first World Championship that was invite-only, and the first that included a team portion. It was a three-day tournament featuring 71 players from 19 countries. The players played ten rounds – five rounds of Sealed deck and five rounds of Standard – where points were awarded for each game win rather than match win.[1] This was also the first tournament where players weren't allowed to change their Constructed deck between the Swiss rounds and the elimination rounds.[2] In the final, the relatively unheralded Swiss player, Alexander Blumke, defeated France's Marc Hernandez 3–2.
