In this week’s MTG Arena Announcements, we have a summary of the upcoming events:
- May 8 – May 9: Arena Open – Strixhaven Sealed
- May 8 – 14: Historic Brawl Fest
- May 13 – 18: First College Cup event
After a long wait, Historic Brawl returns – put your new powerful Strixhaven and Mystical Archive cards to use, and win some Japanese alternate-art card styles! Unfortunately, there are still no signs of a permanent queue here but we hope to hear some news regarding this soon (maybe in the next State of the Game?).
Below is the full post from Wizards of the Coast:
ARENA OPEN RETURNS WITH STRIXHAVEN SEALED
You enjoyed the Kaldheim Sealed Arena Open in February, so we’re bringing it back! May 8–9, play Sealed format matches with Strixhaven: School of Mages.
On Day 1, get sleeves in either—or both—competitions:
- Best-of-One: Pick up the Rowan sleeve just for playing; seven wins earns you the Will sleeve.
- Best-of-Three: Pick up the Will sleeve just for playing; four wins earns you the Rowan sleeve.
Of course, you can also earn gems for wins. Rack up seven wins on Day 1, and you’re invited to Day 2 where the rewards get really big—up to $2,000 big!
BRING YOUR SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR THE COLLEGE CUP
Gear up to earn points for your college in the College Cup, coming to MTG Arena May 13. You’ll challenge students from other Strixhaven colleges, and college pride counts! Have these essential supplies to maximize your point-scoring potential:
- College sleeves: If you haven’t completed it, take the Strixhaven Quiz to get your acceptance letter, which includes a code that grants you your college sleeves. Enter this code at myaccounts.wizards.com or in the Store tab in Magic: The Gathering Arena on PC or Mac.
- College avatar: Each college’s avatar is available in the second position in the Strixhaven Mastery web.
- College tome pet: Each college has a tome pet available within the first ten levels of the Strixhaven Mastery Pass rewards levels.
HISTORIC BRAWL FEST WITH MYSTICAL ARCHIVE
Entry fee for Historic Brawl Fest is 2,500 gold or 500 gems.
Note that there are a few banned cards from Mystical Archive in Historic Brawl:
