Arena Championship 6 This Weekend

Arena Championship 6 with tagline: Sharpen Your Claws, July 13 & 14, 9 a.m. PT #AC6

The best-of-the-best MTG Arena players will compete in the Arena Championship 6 this weekend.  Players have been working hard at Qualifier Weekends, Arena Opens, and rising through the ranks for their shot at Magic: The Gathering glory.

The formats on display this weekend will be Historic Constructed and Modern Horizons 3 Draft. Bringing together one of MTG Arena's most popular formats alongside a powerful draft environment is the perfect way to celebrate why people love Magic.

Tune into the coverage over on and watch the fun unfold! There's an Arena Championship 6 Viewer's Guide to help ensure you don't miss any of the high-octane gameplay that this event promises.

Curious about Modern Horizons 3 draft? Marshall Sutcliffe wrote a primer ahead of last week's Pro Tour Modern Horizons 3 that will give you a brief on this energized draft environment.

This Weekend: Win Physical Magic Cards in the Arena Direct Event

Win physical Magic cards by winning in MTG Arena events—introducing Arena Direct

Physical Magic cards? From an MTG Arena event? It's even better than you may think.

After seeing how much you all loved the Festival in a Box event, we thought we'd bring back that fun alongside one of our most anticipated releases of the year.

The format is Best-of-One Modern Horizons 3 Sealed. With your entry, you'll be provided six Modern Horizons 3 Packs to construct your deck, so get ready to jam Writhing Chrysalis, Conduit Goblin, and more for your chance to win physical cards.
