Dominaria United: Magic Online Edition

Our latest set, Dominaria United, is now live. Check out the dedicated article to learn all about everything new with the release:

  • Events, including the limited-time Best-of-One Draft League and Limited Challenges
  • A revamp of Treasure Chests
  • The latest suite of avatars

Dominaria United Best-of-One Draft League Is Here

For the first time, Magic Online is running a Best-of-One Draft League. Until Thursday, September 15, join the draft queue and play until you get 7 wins or 3 losses. Full details, including prizes, are found in the Dominaria United article.

This league is perfect if you only have time for a quick game or two between classes, during lunch, before you head out, or after the kids are asleep. If this is your style, give this league a try!

Please note that this league will only be available for the first two weeks of Dominaria United's release, so get your reps in while you can.


Dominaria United Commander Decks on Sale Now

The new set's two Commander Decks—Painbow and Legends' Legacy—join the Magic Online store starting Thursday at 10 a.m. PT (17:00 UTC). Painbow is a five-color deck led by Jared Carthalion, while Legends' Legacy is a red-white-black legendaries-matter deck led by Dihada, Binder of Wills. Each deck is $29.99 plus applicable taxes.

Check out the decklists and preview content for the Dominaria United Commander decks.


Treasure Chest Update

We have heard your feedback regarding card availability, particularly for cards that are only available via Treasure Chests. To help improve card availability for cards not found in boosters, a new category within the Treasure Chest has been created: TC-Only.

Also, the Magic Online team has delivered on several dozen cards from Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate, including all Pauper cards with take the initiative, as well as a part of the group of Backgrounds and legends that can choose them. Furthermore, some important cards for Legacy and Commander from both this set (looking at you Kenku Artificer and Minsc & Boo, Timeless Heroes) and previous Commander sets (hello, Maddening Hex) are joining the game.

For more details on the changes to Treasure Chests, check the Dominaria United article. You can also visit the Treasure Chest information page to see the effects of the changes.


Limited Super Qualifier Saturday and Sunday

On both Saturday and Sunday, September 10 and 11, there will be a Dominaria United Sealed Super Qualifier—each with a start time of 7 a.m. PT (14:00 UTC). The entry fee is 40 MOCS Qualifier Points, 40 Event Tickets, or 400 Play Points. The top four finishers in each event qualify for the first tabletop Regional Championships in November and December.
