This guide has now been superseded by the Midweek Magic event! For the latest details and decks for the Historic Artisan – Midweek Magic event, check out the below link:
This week’s FNM at Home event for MTG Arena is Historic Artisan, where you build a 60-card deck consisting of only commons and uncommons! Enter the event for free, win some free Rare Individual Card Rewards (ICRs) and send a proof of your participation to your local game store (LGS) to obtain an Arena FNM Promo Pack containing two cosmetic items. Below is everything you need to know about the event as well as our latest decklists you can use to conquer the event.
This is also the last FNM at Home event, as in-store play returns. It will be replaced with a new set of weekly events called Midweek Magic that lasts for 48 hours from Tuesdays to Thursdays. You can also check out the full schedule of the FNM at Home series as well as other MTG Arena events on our calendar.
Connect with your local game store while keeping yourself and others safe by playing Friday Night Magic (FNM) on MTG Arena!

MTG Arena Promo Pack
You can also redeem one code for a MTG Arena Promo Pack every week, inspired by the promo packs you receive at your local store. It contains two in-game cosmetic items, refreshed to ensure that these rewards remain playable after the Zendikar Rising Standard rotation.
As outlined in the event details, the code is obtained from your local game store’s online community:
HOW TO GET A REWARD CODE FROM YOUR STORE
Some stores have robust online communities, and others will be forming them for the first time. If you’re already part of such a community, great! Check with them and get connected.
If you aren’t part of a local game store’s online community, or if they don’t have one set up, there are a couple ways you can get connected. One is to simply reach out to your store and ask. Another is to head to locator.wizards.com to find your local game store’s website. Many of them have set up online communities through Discord, WhatsApp, and Facebook, so you may have to join or download one of those applications.
Step by step, here’s how it works:
- Play in the event (win or lose as much as you want)
- Take a screenshot of your event page
- Go to locator.wizards.com to find your local game store’s website
- Join their social media channel
- Share your screenshot with a nice message on their channel
- Store will message you a code* through that social media channel
*Note: While supplies last. Not all stores are participating. Limit one code per account. Sharing a screenshot with your local game store does not guarantee you will receive a code.
If you cannot find an appropriate store or just don’t want to bother with the whole process, you can buy the codes directly from trusted MTG Arena code vendors such as Gray Viking Games. For a few dollars, you can instantly obtain the code to the MTG Arena Promo Pack as well as codes from other products such as Prerelease, Planeswalker decks, Secret Lair sleeves, and more. For more information of MTG Arena codes, consult our full guide. Be sure to check them out!
