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 ‘Reedom Code’ written inside. 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.
Are MTG Arena codes on the way out?
MTG Arena seems to be in flux when it comes to codes right now. The codes above still work, and Wizards of the Coast isn’t above releasing new ones. For example, to promote the release of MTG Lord of the Rings on the platform, 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 there haven’t been any new codes for any MTG set in 2023. Quite how this will affect new players, who used to be able to open up a few packs of all the latest releases, remains to be seen.
How can I get more MTG Arena codes?
Wizards will often include codes in its MTG Arena newsletters, particularly around the release of a new set. It’ll also sometimes 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 1000 XP, for instance.
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. Occasionally, the official MTG Twitter page will release codes, so keep your eyes peeled.
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 honourable 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.
