Every MTG Arena code that still works in 2024

Wizards of the Coast is phasing out MTG Arena codes, but you can still redeem these MTGA codes for free cards, booster packs, and cosmetics.

Looking for the latest MTG Arena codes? Good call – if you’re new to Arena, they’re an essential kick start for your collection of digital Magic: The Gathering cards, as well as funky cosmetic items like card sleeves, avatars, and more. There aren’t nearly as many MTGA codes around as there used to be – but this handy guide tracks every code that still works, so you can redeem them for a nice in-game boost.

The list of free MTG Arena codes that still works is getting shorter all the time; as we explain below, Wizards of the Coast has mostly phased out their use. As the MTG release schedule rolls on in 2024, it’s likely the new MTG sets that release will send any freebies straight to your account inbox, rather than requiring a code to be redeemed.

But all 18 of the codes listed below still work, and will net you a stack of free booster packs full of digital cards, as well as a small number of free cosmetic items and experience boosts that’ll help speed up your deck-building.

Here’s every MTG Arena code and how to use them:

Once you’ve stocked up on free Magic Arena codes, catch up on the strongest decks in our MTG Arena decks guide. Alternatively, if you’re still a newcomer to Magic: The Gathering, try our guide on how to build a Magic: The Gathering deck.

MTG Arena Murders at Karlov Manor ARG reward

This one isn’t technically a code, but it is a way to get MTG Arena freebies. Fans have solved the ARG found in MTG Murders at Karlov Manor, and the reward is a bunch of XP and some new sleeves.

First create a deck that includes these cards:

  • 1 Extract a Confession
  • 1 Homicide Investigator
  • 1 Leering Onlooker
  • 1 Glint Weaver
  • 1 Granite Witness
  • 1 Meddling Youths
  • 1 Furtive Courier
  • 1 Case of the Stashed Skeleton
  • 1 Out Cold
  • 1 The Pride of Hull Clade
  • 1 Reckless Detective
  • 1 Novice Inspector

Don’t worry if you don’t own the cards; you don’t have to craft them.

Simply name this (invalid) deck ‘thewayisopen’, and you’ll receive 5000 XP and some exclusive sleeves.

MTG Arena code redemption screen

How to redeem MTG Arena codes

There are two ways to redeem MTG Arena codes, and both are super easy. For the first method, open up the game on PC and click on the ‘Store’ tab at the top of the page.

From there, you’ll see a small oval text box in the top right corner, with ‘Redeem Code’ written inside (we’ve highlighted it in red in the picture above). Copy your code into the box, hit enter, and hey presto.

If you’d rather not boot up the game, you can also redeem codes by entering them into your Wizards of the Coast account page. Log in using your MTG Arena details, and on the right-hand side of your account dashboard, you’ll find a nice, big ‘Redeem a code’ box. Paste the code inside, click redeem, and you’re good to go.

Currently, you can’t redeem codes through the iOS and Android versions of the game. Instead, you’ll have to use your Wizards account page, or boot up the PC version of the game to unlock them.

Looking for the Lost Caverns of IxalanWilds of Eldraine, or March of the Machine codes? There aren’t any! Simply log in to Arena, and the three free packs will be there in your inbox. Be sure to check this new feature regularly, chances are it’ll be your main way to collect free MTGA cards, Wildcards, or XP in future.

And, while we’re on that topic…

Are MTG Arena codes on the way out?

We seem to be in flux when it comes to MTG Arena codes right now. The codes above still work, and Wizards of the Coast does sometimes still release new ones as part of specific promotions.

For example, to promote the release of MTG Lord of the Rings on MTG Arena, the company posed the “Speak, friend, and enter” riddle on its Twitter account – a riddle teasing the new Mastery XP code Mellor.

However, the introduction of the player inbox in December 2022 allows Wizards of the Coast to send rewards straight to the players, eschewing the need for any codes.

That’s why we didn’t get any new codes for any MTG set throughout 2023. It remains to be seen quite how this’ll affect new players (who used to be able to sign up for the game, drop 20 or 30 codes for a big beginner’s welcome, and immediately get to open up a few packs from all the latest releases).

In September 2023, the inbox system stopped working temporarily, but this was swiftly fixed, and we expect promo boosters, cosmetics, and XP gifts for all new MTG releases in 2024 to be delivered via the inbox.

How can I get more MTG Arena codes?

There are four other ways to get your hands on additional working MTG Arena codes and items, beyond the main ones listed above. These are:

  1. Codes from physical MTG decks
  2. Promo codes
  3. Pre-release codes
  4. Secret Lair codes

Codes from physical MTG decks

However, you don’t have to rely on Wizards’ generosity to snag goodies. The physical Planeswalker decks released between the sets Guilds of Ravnica and Core Set 2021 each come with a code to unlock their cards in MTG Arena, so you can use all the same cards online as you do on the tabletop. These codes are one-time use only, though, so it’s best to buy new copies of the decks if you’re dead set on their digital counterparts.

These are all the physical MTG decks that include Arena codes:

  • Basri Ket, Devoted Paladin
  • Teferi, Timeless Voyager
  • Liliana, Death Mage
  • Chandra, Flame’s Catalyst
  • Garruk, Savage Herald
  • Vivien, Nature’s Avenger
  • Chandra, Flame’s Fury
  • Sorin, Vampire Lord
  • Mu Yanling, Celestial Wind
  • Ajani, Inspiring Leader
  • Ashiok, Sculptor of Fears
  • Elspeth, Undaunted Hero
  • Rowan, Fearless Sparkmage
  • Oko, the Trickster
  • Jace, Arcane Strategist
  • Gideon, the Oathsworn
  • Domri, City Smasher
  • Dovin, Architect of Law
  • Vraska, Regal Gorgon
  • Ral, Caller of Storms

The MTG Starter Kit also includes a code for its two decks, which can be redeemed by two different Arena players; granting both decks to you and a friend.

Be wary though, Commander and Challenger decks don’t include MTG Arena codes, so don’t go buying those with the expectation of boosting your digital card collection. 

MTG Arena promo codes

MTG Arena promo codes are special promotional codes, often handed out at tournaments, local game store events, or as part of giveaways by professional MTG players and streamers.

Wizards also sometimes includes codes in its MTG Arena newsletters, particularly around the release of a new set.

Occasionally, it’ll share a code via the MTG Arena Twitter account if something goes wrong on Arena, so keep an eye out if you spot technical troubles.

A recent (now-expired) code ‘CIRCUITMENDER’ after a period of downtime gave all users a free 1,000 XP, for instance.

MTG Arena pre-release codes

MTG Arena pre-release codes come with the decks you’ll get at official pre-release events for new MTG sets. If you’ve grabbed a deck at a pre-release event, look inside your pack to find an Arena code. The rewards for these vary: you might find a cosmetic unlock, entry into a limited-run Arena event, or a handful of booster packs.

However, only one pre-release code of each set can be redeemed per MTG Arena account. So if you find yourself with a spare, why not do the honorable thing, and gift it to a friend, or stick it on Reddit for someone else to nab. 

MTG Arena Secret Lair codes

MTG Arena Secret Lair codes are found in the MTG Secret Lair premium boxed sets, and unlock exclusive cards and cosmetics. A pricey option, given the cost of each Secret Lair drop, but very chic.
