Jumpstart, Joke Lands, and Details on the Upcoming Ranked Season

Magic’s Summer of Legend is starting to heat up, and there are a number of exciting things coming up for us in Magic: Arena in the upcoming weeks. Historic Anthology 5 launches tomorrow, May 27, so be sure to check out our Anthology Review and sample decklists if you’re interested in learning more about the newest additions to the format. Players will be able to purchase the bundle, which includes four copies of each card, for 4,000 gems or 25,000 gold. For any Phyrexian fans out there, Wizards of the Coast has also announced special Phrexian text card styles for each of the praetors- more details on that are expected in the near future.

Meanwhile, the College Cup is winding down with just one event remaining, and it looks like Witherbloom is still well out in front.

The next and final event is the Test of Leadership, which also kicks off this Thursday, May 27 and runs until May 31. If you’re looking to grab those beautiful Japanese Mystical Archive card style rewards, jump on Arena and play some brawl games before the end of the event. There are four possible card style rewards, and one event entry allows you to play until you earn them all.

Jumpstart also returns to MTGA for a limited time, running from June 4 to July 8. The event will be run the same way as it was the last time around, with each entry costing 2,000 gold or 400 gems. Additionally, all of the cards you will receive from Jumpstart are legal to play in Historic.

Last but certainly not least, the joke land card styles from Unglued and Unhinged will once again be available for purchase on Arena! These special land arts are offered in two bundles priced at 12,500 gold or 2,500 gems, and will be available until August 12.

See below for a complete list of upcoming events on Arena including the next ranked season and rewards. You can view the full details of everything that’s coming to Arena on Wizards’ official announcement page.

    I wish they’d add back the cards they replaced, like Lightning Bolt.
