February 2020 Ranked Season is now in full swing! The season naming convention has changed, using the corresponding month and year rather than the name of the latest set. It makes more sense this way, since set releases happen usually midway through the month. Note the following for this season:
- The card style rewards for the season has been confirmed Wolfwillow Haven and Taranika, Akroan Veteran for reaching Gold and Platinum ranks, respectively.
- Finishing in the top 1200 Mythic at the end of the season qualifies you to participate for the second and final Ikoria Mythic Qualifier #2 that takes place on March 14, 2020.
- For limited players, it looks like there will be a slight change in the rotating event structure, with Ranked Draft Theros Beyond Death poised to end on February 14, 2020. More information has been confirmed to be released in next week’s February State of the Game update.

As a general reminder, card styles are a cosmetic option only and does not add any cards to a player’s collection. There is no benefit to acquiring a card style more than once; if you achieve Gold Rank or higher in both Limited and Constructed, you will only receive one copy of the card style.
