One for All Singleton – Midweek Magic Event Guide and Decklists

Counterspell Art by Zack Stella
Counterspell Art by Zack Stella

This week’s Midweek Magic is called One for All! This is a special event where the format is Singleton, but the catch is you can use any card on Arena, nothing is banned! If you really want to flex your brewing muscles, I can’t think of a better event to do it in than this!

Players can enter the event for free, win some free Rare Individual Card Rewards (ICRs) and send a proof of your participation to your local game store (LGS) to obtain a Midweek Magic Promo Pack containing two cosmetic items. Below is everything you need to know about the event as well as the list of decks you can use for this event.


Event Details

Welcome to Midweek Magic! Each week, try out a different way to play MTG Arena!

Bring a 60-card deck that can include one of any card on MTG Arena—yes, any card. Every card is legal!

You can receive a code for a Midweek Magic Promo Pack containing two cosmetic items when you share your results with your local game store. Find out how HERE.

*Note: While supplies last. Not all stores are participating.

  • Duration: November 9, 2021 @ 8:00 AM PST to November 11, 2021 @ 8:00 AM PST
  • Format: One for All
  • Entry Fee: Free
  • Ends After: You can play as much as you like for the duration of the event.
  • Match Structure: Best-of-one matches (BO1)

Event Rewards

  • 1 Win: Rare Individual Card Reward (ICR)
  • 2 Wins: Rare Individual Card Reward (ICR)

Midweek Magic Promo Pack

In addition, you can contact your favorite local game store for a Midweek Magic code, either online or (where safe) in person, that can be redeemed for extra in-game rewards. You’ll be able to redeem up to one code every week, and each code redemption will reward you two in-game cosmetic items.

As announced in the recent State of the Game article, starting with the release of Innistrad: Crimon Vow on November 11, these promo packs will be phased out. From next week, Midweek Magic events will have rewards to extended to three wins, that add a cosmetic reward on the third win.

HOW TO GET A REWARD CODE FROM YOUR STORE

Some stores have robust online communities, and others may 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. Another is to head to locator.wizards.com to find your local game store’s website. Many of them have set up online communities through DiscordWhatsApp, and Facebook, so you may have to join or download one of those applications.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Play in the event (win or lose as much as you want)
  2. Take a screenshot of your event page
  3. Go to locator.wizards.com to find your local game store’s website
  4. Join their social media channel
  5. Share your screenshot with a nice message on their channel
  6. Your store will message you a code* through that social media channel

*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!

MTG Arena Zone is supported by its audience. When you buy codes through this link, we may earn an affiliate commission.

For those looking to compete on a budget, Monowhite Aggro is going to be the best deck for the event that only needs Commons and Uncommons to function! I did leave in the 1 Faceless Haven, but feel free to remove it if necessary!

There’s bound to be a lot of clunky decks competing so if you want to punish them, hard to go wrong with trusty Monowhite! Curve them out and beat them down.

Between a bunch of mana dorks, Channel, and Natural Order, you have a really sweet Ramp deck that’s very reminiscent of a Legacy Cube deck!

I love playing Sultai Ultimatum in Singleton as you get to pick a lot of sweet targets for it! If you like a hybrid midrange/combo deck, this is your best choice!

Similar to Sultai Ultimatum, Simic Scapeshift also looks to play a reasonably fair game that can also win out of nowhere with Scapeshift into a big Field of the Dead turn or milling the opponent out with a Crab or two!

What place could be better to start in Singleton than a deck that was already almost Singleton? Dimir Pact was a dominant force in Historic for the short time it was legal, so if you missed that train, you get to experience it here!

Some people like taking all of the turns and I won’t judge them (much). If you miss playing with all your Time Walk effects, this is the chance to relive those days!

A more off the wall option for the event. Companions add a layer of consistency to Singleton that you can’t get otherwise so if you like playing the slot machine a bit, Gyruda seems like a very fun choice.

The final deck of the list for the Control lovers out there. There are so many sweet cards that Control could play in Historic, but can’t as they’re either not good enough or not legal. However, that’s not a problem in One for All so you can play the coolest cards the format has to offer!

    I haven’t really touched Historic at all, so my collection is almost entirely geared toward Standard… I’m putting together a mono-white aggro deck for this that at least on paper looks OK, probably at least good enough to claim a couple of card rewards, but is there anything else you’d recommend for someone whose collection is primarily full of Standard with very few non-Standard staples?

    • DoggertQBones says:

      I think you’re definitely on the best track with monowhite then. The delta between the power level of Historic WW and Standard WW is not that crazy so I’d say it’s your best bet.

  2. Malcatrazz says:

    Lately midweek magic shows it’s only a method to get people to buy cards. All these decks require at least couple dozen rare/mythic wildcards. I tried the budget deck but got sorely overpowered by a mono white mostly rare/mythic deck. Lost all appetite afterwards. I wish wizards would put the fun factor back into these events by making it accessible to people that don’t have the luxury of access to the complete arena library. What happened to preconstructed/pauper/artisan events? Momir doesn’t count imo, that has nothing to do with the game of magic.

    • DoggertQBones says:

      Yeah I wasn’t sure if this was going to be an all access event or not but I’m sad to see that it isn’t. I agree that it’s pretty unreasonable to expect people to use wildcards on things they can literally never use otherwise so it feels weird they didn’t at least provide cards like Natural Order or Demonic Tutor to everyone to at least even the playing field a bit.

  3. Malcatrazz says:

    Thanks for your reply. I do think you make good and interesting brews and I will try them if my wildcards agree 😉

  4. Riffler says:

    Snubhorn Sentry, 2 cheap creatures and Basri ket’s -2 can get you a turn 3 Blessing of the City, which is quite cool
