Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has released their weekly MTG Arena update that includes details on Gladiator All Access, upcoming events, and more.

Gladiator All Access Starts Thursday

Gladiator, the fan-created 100-card singleton format, returns to MTG Arena later this week. Players bring Historic 100-card singleton decks and play best-of-three matches without sideboards. With the event being all access, players can build decks with all cards on the client.

The queue will be open from Thursday until November 28 and is free to play. One win gets you a Dockside Chef card sleeve. The second win rewards you with 1,000 Mastery Pass XP. Learn more about Gladiator here.

Arena Open Set For This Weekend

The Arena Open returns this weekend featuring The Brothers’ War limited. Day 1 offers players Best-of-One or Best-of-Three Sealed queues. Win seven games in Best-of-One or four matches in Best-of-Three to make Day 2, which will include two Player Drafts.

Players who get eight wins on Day 2 earn $2,000 and a Qualifier Weekend invitation. Entry fee for Day 1 costs 25,000 gold or 5,000 gems. Players can enter Day 1 as many times as they wish. Entry also includes The Brothers’ War sleeve.
