The Arena Open is an irregular tournament with a short duration and high skill cap featured on Magic: The Gathering Arena. The first Arena Open took place on May 30-31, 2020.[1][2]

Description[edit]

The Arena Open is a two-day competitive event where the top players are able to receive monetary rewards in US dollars. Outside of the eligibility requirements listed in its Terms and Conditions (e.g. you must be 18 years or older to participate), there are no other prerequisites to participate.

The Arena Open is currently separate from Magic esports (you will not earn Mythic Points, it won't qualify you for a Players Tour/Mythic Invitational, etc.). The goal is to hold multiple Arena Opens a year. The played format is variable. The first Arena Open featured Standard Constructed. The second one was Historic.

Structure[edit]

Day 1[edit]

Day 1 is Best-of-One matches. The entry fee is 20,000 Gold or 4,000 Gems. You will play until seven wins or three losses (whichever comes first), with seven wins earning you qualification for Day 2. You'll be able to enter Day 1 multiple times, which means you'll have more than one opportunity to qualify for Day 2.

  • 7 Wins: 2,000 Gems, Qualification for Day 2
  • 6 Wins: 1,600 Gems
  • 5 Wins: 1,200 Gems
  • 4 Wins: 800 Gems
  • 3 Wins: 400 Gems
  • 0–2 Wins: No Reward

Special reward promos will unlock as soon as you join the event
