Alchemy: Eldraine

MTG Arena Announcements – October 2, 2023

The weekly MTG Arena Announcement post has been published by Wizards of the Coast! Here’s the roundup of everything that is happening and upcoming on MTG Arena! The game has been having issues lately and updates are provided in the Status Page here instead. There is currently no progress on the anniversary rewards. Check out the original source post here or the transcript below.


ANNIVERSARY WEEK ISSUES

Our celebration of MTG Arena‘s fifth anniversary didn’t quite go as we’d planned, so Executive Producer Chris Kiritz posted a detailed letter to the community to explain the issues we encountered and how we’re addressing them. He also invited Senior Software Engineer Ben Smith to talk about Premier Drafts and how improvements can be gained even when things break.

ARENA CHAMPIONSHIP 4 THIS WEEKEND!

It’s been four months in the making, but this weekend, October 7–8, MTG Arena‘s top qualifying players will converge on the Magic battlefield for the digital world’s hottest showdown: Arena Championship 4!

Back in May, Benjamin Broadstone claimed the Arena Championship 3 title—who will claim the title and the top prize of $30,000 this this time? You can watch the unfolding action live on twitch.tv/magic. Check out Arena Championship 4 Viewers Guide for all the event details!

ALCHEMY: ELDRAINE ARRIVES OCTOBER 10

It has been a while since our last Alchemy set, Alchemy: Phyrexia. Usually, we release Alchemy sets between Standard sets, but with March of the Machine: The Aftermath and The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth™ we took a break. Now, we are back with a 30-card Alchemy set that will introduce more cards into Alchemy and Historic formats. These cards are digital-only and have digital-only mechanics, such as draft, seek, perpetual, and more, and they create a fast, ever-evolving Magic experience.

Want to see these new cards? We’ll be previewing them during the Arena Championship 4 broadcast this coming weekend. follow us on our socials and sign up for our email newsletter for sneak peeks in the lead-up!
