Goose Mother Companion Feeding Tip
Carb-heavy bread causes The Goose Mother to skip nutritious foods, leading to malnourishment. Feed only healthy food like dandelion salad (no dressing) for the happy aeroelastic flutter of tail feathers.

Renewal Is Just Two Weeks Away

Renewal coming September 5

We're counting down to the turning of the Magic year, when the Alchemy format rotates, the Standard format rotates—but now only every three years instead of two (so not this year!)—and your Renewal Egg opens with a cascade of bonus goodies to give you a head start.

Visit the Renewal for MTG Arena's 2023 Standard Rotation article for all the details on what's changing and what's not this year!

Historic Event: All Access, No Entry Fee, and No Banned List!

Historic event All Access, no entry, no banned list

We lay it all on the table today through September 5 as we kick off an Historic event featuring no banned list!

That's right: no. Banned. LIST. Blast away with Lightning Bolts, commune with your Demonic Tutor, and Elk-ify the Multiverse with Oko, Thief of Crowns. Rinse, repeat, Time Warp.

Oh, and don't worry if you don't have these notoriously powerful cards in your collection, because this event is All Access! That means everyone has access to all the cards in MTG Arena, so everyone is on equal footing here—your only limits are your creativity and your appetite for raw power.

And one last thing: this event has no entry fee!

This Historic no-banned-list, no-entry-fee, All-Access event begins at 8 a.m. PT (15:00 UTC) and continues until September 5 when Wilds of Eldraine launches!
