The Lost Caverns of Ixalan Mastery

The Lost Caverns of Ixalan Mastery details, including rewards and a guide on how to climb the levels.

The Mastery system for The Lost Caverns of Ixalan (LCI) on MTG Arena is a way for players to receive in-game content through regular gameplay. It runs from November 14, 2023 until the release of the next major expansion Murders at Karlov Manor on February, 2023. Players earn rewards based on their current Set Mastery level, which varies for each specific Set Mastery.

Important note: When the WOE patch releases and the new Mastery starts, players get a fresh set of Daily Quests, as well as a rest of the Daily Wins and Weekly Wins. Be sure to complete what you have active already, and advance your current Mastery as much as possible!

Below is the full breakdown of the Mastery.
