Are you a fan of MTG Arena and feeling slightly jealous of our Time Spiral Remastered previews?
Well, pack your bags for a trip to the past on MTG Arena. Historic lovers, your time has come!

Historic Anthology IV adds 25 cards to MTG Arena, adding to decks you already know and unlocking exciting new strategies.

Beginning March 11, you can purchase the complete Historic Anthology IV in the MTG Arena in-game store, and it contains a play set (four copies) of every new card. You may also use Wildcards to craft these new cards individually, using a Wildcard of the appropriate rarity. The Historic format features all sets currently available in MTG Arena, plus additional Historic Anthology cards (like these).

Bundle Cost: 4,000 Gems or 25,000 Gold​

Bundle Available: March 11, 2021 – June 10, 2021

  • Players will still be able to craft these cards using Wildcards of the appropriate rarity after this date.

Legality: Historic Anthology IV will be legal to play in Historic formats upon release.

Now that you know when and how you can acquire the cards in Historic Anthology IV, let's get to the good stuff—the cards!

Up first, we've got juicy new additions to white.

Wait, what's that? We only previewed 24 cards?

Don't worry, we didn't want to cast a shadow over the others, so we saved the best for last.
