Yargle Day 2022

Yargle Day! Event Details – 2020

Yargle Day!

When Belzenlok’s lieutenant Yar-Kul grew to ambitious, the Demonlord transformed him into a maggot. The frog that ate the maggot grew and grew, until a ravenous spirit burst from its body. Today, we celebrate that spirit, everyone’s pal, Yargle!

This year, Yargle has invited several friends who share its interests and general lopsidedness, and everyone’s squaring off in a Historic Brawl showdown. Of course, it’s Yargle’s day, so the rules might be a little lopsided to boot, but who’s counting? Choose your favorite champion and celebrate in style! Happy Yargle Day, everyone!

Rewards

Following last week’s Standard 2021 Artisan event, players are once again able to earn up to 1200 Core Set Mastery XP (1.2 levels) as a one off in this event to help catch up. We still exactly two weeks until the Zendikar Rising Mastery begins on September 17, so be sure to use our Mastery Calculator to see what level you can reach. This will be especially helpful if you are wondering whether purchasing the paid Mastery Pass is worth it for you – remember, rewards are retroactive!

  • 1 Win: 900 Mastery XP
  • 2 Wins: 300 Mastery XP

Event Decks

To participate in this event, you can choose from the five Historic Pauper decks below but each deck has 9 Yargle, Glutton of Urborg and it costs only 3 mana to play due to the emblem! Each deck is built around the card to make use of its 9 power, such as giving it unblockable, double strike or trample.

Each deck looks fun to play on their own, but if you are after the two quick wins then the Blue or the Red deck looks to offer the most value to disrupt your opponent’s Yargle to make way for your own. The Mono Black one offers consistency in the mana base and is not too far behind.


Happy Yargle Day! Secret Lair

Starting at September 3rd at 9 AM PST, the Happy Yargle Day! Secret Lair will be available in both regular and foil versions for $29.99 USD and $39.99 USD respectively. Please note that this is a tabletop Magic product, and there are no MTG Arena sleeves associated with this drop.

For our entire lives, we have celebrated Yargle Day every single September 3rd. This is well-known information and taught over and over again in schools, but here are a few Yargle Day reminders:

  • If you hear footsteps on your roof, REMAIN CALM. Yargle can smell your fear.
  • It doesn’t matter if you’re naughty or nice, Yargle’s gaping maw is large enough to accommodate both kinds of children at once.
  • Save your milk and cookies for December. Consider tying a goat to a fence on the outskirts of your property, and maybe he’ll get full.
  • Yargle never gets full.

It seems a single card in Dominaria was not enough to appease this beautiful, cruel spirit, so we have printed several popular cards with new art celebrating his glorious visage. We fondly remember the sacrifices artists who undertook this daunting challenge: Dmitry Burmak, Jehan Choo, Matt Dixon, Chuck Lukacs, and Franz Vohwinkel. May Yargle have mercy on their souls.
