What Is the Magic Online Weekly Announcements Blog?
Every Tuesday, we round up all the biggest Magic Online news for the Weekly Announcements Blog.
Check in weekly for the latest updates!
Celebrate Black History and excellence during February and every month with us here on Magic Online! Read on to find out how you can score the entire Secret Lair: Black Is Magic drop by simply playing Magic!
For each week in February, we'll be keeping tabs on accounts that simply play and finish an entire game of Magic each week. Whether that's a round in the Pauper League, a match playing Innistrad: Double Feature or Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty draft, or just a Commander game with friends, you'll eventually be able to earn all these cards on March 1.
Playing games during these weeks will earn you the following cards. But if you just play a game each week in February, you're in the clear to receive the entire Secret Lair drop on Magic Online!
