We are bringing MTG Arena back online, however we're continuing to monitor the situation to ensure our systems have stabilized. Maintenance is on-going.
Because COVID-19 is keeping millions of people around the world indoors, we wanted to do a little something to help make social distancing a little more tolerable.
To that end, we are making changes to the Magic: The Gathering Arena event schedule beginning on Thursday, March 19 to give you more ways to play Magic from the comfort and safety of your home:
The Brawlers' Guildhall event for March will have no entry fee and will be available March 19–April 16.
These changes are scheduled to go live on March 19 at approximately 8 a.m. PT.
Stay safe, wash your hands, and try to avoid becoming too stir-crazy as you’re cooped up in your house for the time being. We’re continuing to explore ways to make it easier for you to keep in contact with players from ...Read more

The March game update is sure to put a spring in your steps and phases with new cards, new features, new events, and new ways to interact with your fellow players.
In case you missed it last week, we announced that we'll be adding 25 cards to MTG Arena as part of Historic Anthology II.
With Historic Anthology I, our primary goal was to open up the options for Historic decks to start bringing the greater breadth that a nonrotating format should support. We felt like this landed fairly well, with cards like ...Read more
On March 12, Magic: The Gathering Arena will be updating Historic with 25 new cards to add to players' arsenals—and Secret Lair is going to get in on some of the action.

Among those 25 new cards, players will discover a powerful two-drop in ...Read more
Note: This was a data only deployment. Players will not need to update their client as a part of this maintenance.
The Rotting Regisaur card style is listed for an incorrect price when purchasing it through the Deck Builder. As a result, the Daily Deal price of 750 gems appears incorrect as well.
We apologize for the confusion and inconvenience.
We have recently taken action against players for in-game misconduct related to abusing the timer system (“roping”). In addition to player reports, we also looked at multiple data points over an extended period of time to help us identify which players we believe were deliberately misusing this system before taking action against their account.
The timer system is an important feature in Magic: The Gathering Arena and is designed to allow for additional time to handle complex board states or the occasional real-world disruption. We intend for players to use their timeouts as necessary while also ensuring matches come to a timely conclusion. We were careful to only act against players who we can conclusively prove deliberately and consistently abused this feature.
Players will be notified through email if they were flagged for misconduct, as well as what actions were taken against their account.
Thank you to all of our players for their reports, as w...Read more
As we celebrate the release of Theros Beyond Death and the upcoming Magic World Championship, the February game update brings a variety of ways for you to experience Magic: The Gathering Arena.
Sixteen players. $1,000,000 in prizes. In a little over a week's time, the best Magic players in the world will travel to Honolulu, Hawaii to compete for the title of Magic World Champion. And, this year, they'll be competing on MTG Arena.
To support the Draft portion of the event, we've added the option for players to Direct Challenge each other in a Limited Tournament Match that will follow the same rules as other Best-of-Three Draft formats in MTG Arena. Players also have the option to choose a 40-card deck as one of the options for other Direct Challenge matches, where you can play around with options like timers and who goes first.
Going forward, ranked seasons will be referred to by their respective month and year (e.g. February 2020) instead of the current set (e.g. Theros Beyond Death Season 1).
Febuary 2020 Ranked Season starts January 31, 12:05 PT (19:05 UTC), ends February 29 at 12:00 PT (19:00 UTC)
Players will receive the...Read more

There is no downtime associated with this patch. Magic: The Gathering Arena will automatically update the next time the game is launched.
It's going to be an epic year for Magic: The Gathering Arena, and it all begins next week with our January game update. We're bringing you a new card set, new features, a new way for you to download and play.
(Yes, those are Nyx basic lands! They won't be available with this release, but we'll have more information on how you can obtain these lands and other showcase card styles in a future update.)
Theros Beyond Death also heralds the return of Sagas, devotion, and constellation to Standard play, as well as the addition of the new keyword escape. Once again, Matt Tabak serves as our idyllic tutor for explaining both the old and the new in our ...Read more
