MTG Arena Announcements: November 29, 2022 – Explorer Anthology 2 and Alchemy Previews!

After a series of MTG Arena announcement articles full of updates coming alongside the release of the new Standard-legal set The Brothers' War on November 15, this week's brief bulletin covers the Arena Open and a free to play Gladiator event.

This week’s MTG Arena announcements looks at the upcoming The Brothers’ Brawl event, and an announcement of an announcement – Alchemy: Brothers’ War and Explorer Anthology 2 sneak peek! Both sets will be releasing on December 13, 2022 and will look to reinvigorate the meta and hopefully make it more enticing for players.


GET SCHEMATIC CARD STYLES IN THE BROTHERS’ BRAWL EVENT!

Are you Team Urza or Team Mishra? On Friday, December 2, you’ll have a chance to prove which is the mightier brother in The Brothers’ Brawl! There are two events in one: join either Mishra’s Forces or Urza’s Army and go head-to-head with opposing players using preconstructed decks.

But don’t limit yourself to just one side—try them both! Each event has its own set of schematic card styles that participants can claim, like these:
