Welcome to New Historic!

March 31 @ 8:00 AM April 2 @ 8:00 AM

Welcome to New Historic!

Seeing the maturation of the Historic format over time has been exciting, but we recently got to thinking. Have we lost sight of what got us here in the first place? Is this truly honoring the historical traditions of Magic? Not exactly, but it could! It’s time to take Historic back to how things were really meant to be.

In the olden days, decks could be as small as 40 cards! And you could play as many of a card as you wanted, not just four! And there weren’t any banned cards to worry about! Doesn’t that sound great?

This is such an obviously great way to play, we’ve even enabled All Access so that everybody can participate. We’re still debating the fate of existing “Old Historic” queues and events, but in the meantime, enjoy the look of Historic here. Have fun!

Build a 40-card deck with no limit on copies of a card. Every card on MTG Arena is legal and available, whether it’s in your collection or not. (Yes, even that card.) Play as much as you want!
