The Multiverse is a big place, and finding the right people to adventure with is a big job. Building a community with others who share your interests means that you'll have friend—or even rivals—to make things more interesting!
Putting together the right combination of cards can make for a perfect deck, and playing with your community of Magic players can make for a perfect holiday! This weekend, you can find both in Gladiator, a fan format using 100-card Singleton Historic decks. This MTG Arena event is All Access, meaning you can build with cards you may not even have in your collection!

What Is the Gladiator Format?
Gladiator is a fan-created format with a robust community that is always welcoming new players! To learn more and connect with other Gladiator players year round, check out the community Discord.
The rules of Gladiator are:
- Decks must contain no fewer than 100 cards and no sideboards, with a maximum of one copy of each card other than basic lands (similar to Singleton) or cards with no deck limit, like
- Matches are Best-of-Three (but without sideboarding between games).
- All cards available on MTG Arena are legal in their original versions except for the following banned cards:
Field of the Dead Natural Order Nexus of Fate Oko, Thief of Crowns Teferi, Time Raveler
An oversized deck with a Singleton limit means you'll need a robust game plan that can adapt to many different circumstances, while the multiple-game matches mean you'll see a lot more of both your own deck and your opponent's deck.
So, sit back, relax, and have a Magic holiday with the games and community you enjoy!
