No Limits – FNM at Home Event Guide and Decklists
This week’s FNM at Home event is No Limits, where you can build a deck using any card and with no restrictions on how many copies you can play! As usual, enter the event for free and play as much as you like for the next 24 hours. You can also win some free Rare Individual Card Rewards (ICRs) and send a proof of your participation to your local game store (LGS) to obtain an Arena FNM Promo Pack containing two cosmetic items. Below is everything you need to know about the event as well as our latest decklists you can use to conquer the event.
You can check out the full schedule of the FNM at Home series as well as other MTG Arena events on our calendar!
Connect with your local game store while keeping yourself and others safe by playing Friday Night Magic (FNM) on MTG Arena!
In today’s event, the only rule is that there are no rules! Bring a deck of at least 40 cards from all of MTG Arena, and we do mean all. No bans, no restrictions on number of copies, no need to have the cards in your collection. Hold on to your sparks – it’s about to get wild.
You can receive a code for an Arena FNM Promo Pack containing two cosmetic items when you share your results with your local game store. Find out how, as well as a list of banned cards here.
*Note: While supplies last. Not all stores are participating.

You can also redeem one code for a MTG Arena Promo Pack every week, which will reward you with two in-game cosmetic items. To ensure that these rewards remain playable after the Zendikar Rising Standard rotation, the list of available rewards has been refreshed as of the September 18 FNM at Home event. There are sleeves on offer featuring the Japanese Planeswalker alternate art, new Guild themed sleeves, Ikoria card styles, the Tamiyo player avatar, and more. The code is obtained from your local game store’s online community, as outlined in the Wizard’s official article:
HOW TO GET A REWARD CODE FROM YOUR STORE
Some stores have robust online communities, and others will be forming them for the first time. If you’re already part of such a community, great! Check with them and get connected.
If you aren’t part of a local game store’s online community, or if they don’t have one set up, there are a couple ways you can get connected. One is to simply reach out to your store and ask (give them a little bit of time—many of them are getting this information today as well). Another is to head to locator.wizards.com to find your local game store’s website. Not every store has a website on there right now, but our teams here are reaching out to our stores to help them set up options and connect them to our store locator. Many of them will be setting up online communities through Discord, WhatsApp, and Facebook, so you may have to join or download one of those applications.
Step-by-step, here’s how it works:
- Play in the event (win or lose as much as you want)
- Take a screenshot of your event page
- Go to locator.wizards.com to find your local game store’s website
- Join their social media channel
- Share your screenshot with a nice message on their channel
- The store will message you a code* back.
*Note: While supplies last. Not all stores are participating. Limit one code per account. Sharing a screenshot with your local game store does not guarantee you will receive a code.
If you cannot find an appropriate store or just don’t want to bother with the whole process, you can buy the codes directly from trusted MTG Arena code vendors such as Gray Viking Games. For a few dollars, you can instantly obtain the code to the MTG Arena Promo Pack as well as codes from other products such as Prerelease, Planeswalker decks, Secret Lair sleeves, and more. For more information of MTG Arena codes, consult our full guide. Be sure to check them out!
No Limits Decklists
Magic Hall of Famer and Maths Doctor Frank Karsten has ran the numbers for us and gave us the optimal number of Lightning Bolt (or even Fervent Champion) you should play in your deck if you want to try and burn your opponent and quickly as possible for the two wins:
We’ll be adding more decks throughout the day, so check back later!
Having said that, it might not be as simple as you think since you can face almost anything – including an army of Charmed Stray! We have actually had a similar event as an April Fools event called New Historic, except back then we didn’t have any Strixhaven or Mystical Archive cards. Here they are again for your reference:
