MTG Arena Announcements: June 1, 2022

In this week’s MTG Arena Announcements, we have a patch coming on June 2, and a minor change to the Historic Brawl format!

  • Alchemy: New Capenna is arriving on June 2, 2022 with 30 new digital-only cards for the Alchemy format. With it, there is also a special Premier Draft format with a slight twist – one common is replaced with an Alchemy: New Capenna card in each pack.
  • Davriel's Withering and Davriel, Soul Broker will be unbanned from Historic Brawl with a rule update. Perpetual effects can be removed from your commander whenever they are returned to the command zone.
  • The June 2022 Ranked season has started, and this month’s Qualifier events are all for the Explorer format!

Most information have been covered in last week’s post in more detail. Below is the full announcement from Wizards of the Coast for this week.

MTG Arena Announcements, June 1, 2022


The 30-card Alchemy: New Capenna set hits MTG Arena tomorrow, June 2, with more cards and player experience updates. For details on the updates, check out last week’s announcements.

NEW UPDATE! Coming in tomorrow’s update for Historic Brawl: You’ll have the option to remove perpetual effects from your commander whenever they are returned to the command zone. Plus, Davriel’s Withering and Davriel, Soul Broker will be unbanned!


Premier Draft New Capenna Alchemy: June 2–6

Here’s an opportunity to get Alchemy cards through drafting! In this special event, players draft three packs of Streets of New Capenna, but one common card in each pack is replaced with a card from Alchemy: New Capenna. This card can be any rarity, so some packs will have multiple rares!

Each Draft pack contains one card from Alchemy: New Capenna.

  • 55% of packs contain an uncommon card.
  • 38.57% of packs contain a rare card.
  • 6.43% of packs contain a mythic rare card.
  • Each rare appears twice as often as each mythic rare.

Premier Draft New Capenna Alchemy has the same entry and payouts as the familiar Premier Draft events and awards Alchemy: New Capenna packs. The usual Premier Draft New Capenna event will remain available throughout the weekend as well.

Alchemy: New Capenna packs will also now be awarded by Alchemy events, traditional Alchemy events, and the upcoming Alchemy Metagame Challenge for those who want to stick to Constructed play.
