Got the cards already? Regular details of the event apply (including minimum players and entry options of 40 Event Tickets, 400 Play Points, or 40 Qualifier Points), and those can be found here.

Don't have the cards for your favorite format in your collection or want to try something new? Mythic Event Tokens are available in the MTGO store for $25.00. Once you buy one, you'll be able to enter events and games using just about any deck, even if the cards in it aren't in your collection.

  • Purchasing a single Mythic Event Token provides access to almost every card in Magic Online (except Secret Lair, promos, sets not released in full on Magic Online, and a few others) and lets you:
  • Test out new strategies in Open Play, Solitaire, and Commander
  • Try new ideas to win prizes in Leagues and Queues (normal entry option required)
  • Take on MTGO's best in Format Challenges and Showcase Challenges (normal entry option required)
  • Enter a Super Qualifier (normal entry option required) or purchase a second Mythic Event Token and use both to enter

Please note:

  • Spending Mythic Event Tokens doesn't remove All-Access—the access continues to apply to your account until downtime and lets you continue to build decks and enter Leagues, Tournaments, or additional Super Qualifiers with the regular entry options.
  • Unused Mythic Event Tokens will be cleared from accounts during the downtime on January 27.

The Mythic Event Token is on sale now for $25.00, and enhanced access lasts until the next scheduled downtime—Wednesday, January 27, at 9:00 a.m. Pacific (17:00 UTC).


Spotlight Cube Series: Temur Cube Ends Tomorrow

Packed with tons of combos and potential degeneracy to be had, Temur Cube ends this Wednesday, January 20, so make sure to check it out while you still can! Cube designer Elizabeth Rice has more on Temur Cube, as well as a full card list, available in the announcement article here.


Vintage Masters Flashback

One of the most popular Draft formats of all time is back to round out Zendikar Rising season. Starting this Wednesday, January 20, we're doing a week of Vintage Masters flashbacks. This Phantom League will run January 20–28—entry and prize details are found here.
