This week’s Midweek Magic is Alchemy Artisan! It’s a format where Rares and Mythics aren’t allowed, which makes for interesting deck building and (fun fact) is my favorite format on Arena!

Players can participate in the event for free, earn free Individual Rare Card (ICR) rewards and a random cosmetic item on the third win. Below is everything you need to know about the event as well as the list of decks you can use for this event.


Event details

Welcome to Midweek Magic! Each week, try a different way to play MTG Arena!
