Team Up with Magic Extra Life!

Posted in Feature on October 3, 2019

By Wizards of the Coast

Year after year, the Magic community has come together to fundraise for an incredible cause: Extra Life benefiting Seattle Children's Hospital. The funds we raise go to children and families in crisis, helping those who need it the most.

This year, we're striving to raise more money than ever before!

But to reach our goal, we need your help. Join our team, fundraise for the cause, and earn an MTG Arena premium card style for your community.

Here's how:

Creators or groups of up to six creators can create Extra Life teams and join the Magic: The Gathering Extra Life Super Team. From October 2, 2019 to 11:59 p.m. PT on November 2, 2019, each team will rally their community and compete against other teams to raise the most money. The eight teams that raise the most for Extra Life will earn an MTG Arena premium card style for the card Inspiring Veteran.

The top eight teams will receive the following number of codes distributed evenly among all team members to give out to their community as they see fit.

  1. 7,000
  2. 4,000
  3. 3,000
  4. 2,000
  5. 1,500
  6. 1,000
  7. 750
  8. 500

The codes will be redeemable from November 3, 2019 to January 1, 2020.

Magic Extra Life kicks off in a series of streams October 28–November 1. On Saturday, November 2, we'll stream our 8-hour finale, featuring community favorites and Wizards employees! Throughout the week, we'll be hosting fundraising teams on our channel and keeping the community up to date on who's leading the pack in the creator campaign.
