January 2021 Season Reward

Players will receive their rewards for December 2020 season at the start of the next ranked season (December 31, 12:05 PST/19:05 UTC). You must have played at least one ranked game in the respective format to receive seasonal rewards.

  • Bronze: 1 Kaldheim booster pack
  • Silver: 1 Kaldheim booster pack + 500 gold
  • Gold: 2 Kaldheim booster packs + 1000 gold + Relic Axe Card Style
  • Platinum: 3 Kaldheim booster packs + 1000 gold + Throne of Makindi Card Style
  • Diamond: 4 Kaldheim booster packs + 1000 gold
  • Mythic: 5 Kaldheim booster packs + 1000 gold

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.

Players that finish in the top 1,200 of Mythic-ranked competitors will qualify to participate in the January Kaldheim Qualifier Weekend. Matches that finish prior to 12:00 p.m. PST on January 31, 2020 will contribute to final season ranking. Eligible players will have a Qualifier Badge indicating their invitation granted to their account no later than the second business day of the month.
