History[edit | edit source]
The name change came about after the introduction of a full Magic esports and competitive gaming program with the addition of MTG Arena and the Magic Pro League. It is meant to reinforce the idea that competitive Magic is now both digital and tabletop, and to make a clear distinction between the professional players in the Magic Pro League and the events that are open to the public. There will be a total of 10 Mythic Championship tournaments, plus other partner-run events, which will have a combined prize pool of $10 million. That money will be split equally between paper Magic and Magic Arena tournaments.
Qualification[edit | edit source]
The 32 Magic Pro League players MPL will compete in weekly matches on Magic Arena. These matches will lead into the Mythic Championships, where they will compete against other top players.
