MTG Arena Announcements: July 13, 2022

In this week’s MTG Arena Announcements, we have details for some of the events coming up, especially the road ahead for the competitive formats being focused on Alchemy. Other than that, no other new information as we wait for things like Historic Anthology 6, Explorer Anthology 1 and Dominaria United start to kick in! As always, check out the full post by Wizards of the Coast below.


JULY QUALIFIER PLAY-IN THIS SATURDAY

The first Qualifier Play-In event for the month of July is set for this Saturday, July 16, beginning at 6 a.m. PT (13:00 UTC). This is your opportunity to prove your Magic prowess in next-level Premier Play competition and perhaps even claim an invitation to the July Qualifier Weekend event—the stepping stone to the Arena Championships.

Saturday’s Qualifier Play-In format will be Best-of-One Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate Phantom Sealed (in Phantom events, cards from the event are not added to your collection), so check out the Event Schedule below for events you can play to sharpen your skills with the new set!

DRAGONS, DRAGONS, DRAGONS—PLUS RULEBOOK CARD STYLES!

We’re celebrating the release of Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate by unleashing a flight of Dragons (or is it a flock? A covey of Dragons? No, that doesn’t sound right) in a pair of new events!

THURSDAY, JULY 14: DRAGON BRAWL

Dragon Brawl kicks off tomorrow, July 14 at 8 a.m. PT (15:00 UTC)! Revel in your draconic grandeur in this Historic Brawl with preconstructed decks featuring legendary Dragon commanders. There are ten rulebook card styles you can earn, including these!

Get all of the Dragon Brawl event details, see all of the card styles you can collect, and start playing before this event soars off into the sunset on July 18!

MONDAY, JULY 18: DRAGONS & DUNGEONS

Delve into dungeons on the backs of Dragons in the Dragons & Dungeons event July 18–28! In this Historic Singleton All-Access event, Dragons with mana value 5+ are cheaper, and every second spell will venture you further into the dungeon.

This is an All-Access event, so you can use cards that aren’t in your collection! Let your creativity run wild! As you plunder, you’ll receive rulebook card styles of legendary creatures from Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate, like these:

See all the available card styles and find all the event details in the Dragons & Dungeons event article.
