MTG Arena: State of the Game – October 2020


Wizards of The Coast recently released an October State of the Game release regarding Mtg Arena. Let’s go and see the numerous news together.


A series of events dedicated to this new expansion will also return with Zendikar and will kick off on October 17th with the Zendikar World Tour. This series of events will allow us to win aesthetic items for their entire duration.

  • October 17–20: Zendikar World Tour (Preconstructed Decks)
  • October 24–27: Cascade Singleton
  • November 1–4: Mastermind
  • November 7–12: On the Edge


WOTC has also announced the calendar of the next draft that we will find inside MTG Arena, this is a great way to complete our collections and farm the chest to increase our number of wildcards.


  • September 17 – Winter 2020: Zendikar Rising
  • October 23–30: Throne of Elaine
  • October 30 – November 6: Theros Beyond Death
  • November 6–13: Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths

At the end of October, the ARENA OPEN will also be back, the tournament with prize money dedicated to MTG Arena players.

This time, however, there are many new features: the format chosen for this event is again STANDARD and it will be possible to qualify by playing both in Best of one and in Best of Three. This will be possible thanks to two distinct events within the game client that will allow us to choose how to qualify for day2. The entrance fee will be the same, that is gold or 4000 gems, while the prizes will be slightly different; how the number of matches played and needed to qualify will differ. In fact, for the BO1 queue, it will be necessary to win 7 games with 3 possible defeats, mind if you decide to play in BO3 4 wins will be enough but you will have only one defeat available.
The two days of the tournament will be structured as follows:


Format: Best-of-One or Best-of-Three Standard Constructed
