Mythic Points is an award system for Magic: The Gathering professional play, introduced in 2019. Replacing the Pro Points system, it was at first designed to connect competitive gaming across MTG Arena and Magic tabletop. However, this lead to a quandary in that well-performing players on the paper Mythic Championships could not be a discretionary invite to the Arena Mythic Championships, or else they would get a significant and unfair lead into the MPL and Worlds race, as the 0-4 payout from Arena was equivalent to a 10-6 payout from paper - indeed, four of the six top challengers were beneficiaries of discretionary invites.
For 2020, the tracks for player ranking points for MTG Arena play and tabletop play were separated, with the MPL tracking rankings combining the two. For MTG Arena play, Mythic Points were kept. For tabletop Player Points were introduced.
