With Magic the Gathering: Arena coming out of its early access period and a brand new set being released at the same time, there's no better time to learn Magic the Gathering.

MTG Arena codes - physical products

Digital codes are not the only way to get free cards in MTG Arena. If you purchase certain products that contain real cards, they will contain codes unique to that card and are redeemable once. They will either give you card styles or digital versions of the cards you have purchased in the deck. Note that every other Magic the Gathering product, including any booster packs for even Throne of Eldraine and other recent sets, will not give you free MTG Arena codes, unlike similarly popular card games. Below are the places where you can get physical codes for the game.

  • Planeswalker decks - Any set after Guilds of Ravnica will give you a digital replica to use in MTG Arena.
  • Magic the Gathering gift packs - Any gift pack from Magic the Gathering Gift Pack 2018 and onwards contains card styles.

MTG set prereleases

Talking about this takes me back to the good days. Magic the Gathering has long celebrated the release of every single set it has by giving players who pay to attend the tournament a bunch of physical cards from the new set to play with. They're usually players first look at the bulk of the cards. These events usually have draft or sealed Limited formats and the cards come in a special prerelease pack.

If some of the older sets are still lying around, the chances are that unless they are sealed packs, the codes will already have been redeemed. However, for every prerelease pack from the Guilds of Ravnica set and onwards, you'll be able to get a free code to unlock a free entry into the digital version of the competitive draft mode for that set.
