Limited rank seasonal rewards

Entry fee: 5,000 gold or 750 gems. Best-of-one matches; run ends after seven wins or three losses. Events rotate through previous Draft formats every fortnight. Match results affect Limited rank.

Players then proceed to construct a deck with a minimum of 40 cards using their drafted cards. Deck construction and drafting times aren't limited, and players draft against robot opponents whose picks are influenced by MTGO data. After the Draft match window closes, players get rewards according to their win record.[1] Draft has its own ranking system.

Rewards based on total wins are:

  • No wins — 50 gems and one pack (20% chance of two instead)
  • One win — 100 gems and one pack (22% chance of two instead)
  • Two wins — 200 gems and one pack (24% chance of two instead)
