Daybreak Games have released their weekly update article for Magic Online, detailing upcoming events, game changes, and more.

Wilds Of Eldraine Arrives On Tuesday With All-Access

Magic Online will undergo a series of updates in preparation for Tuesday’s release of Wilds of Eldraine on the platform. Some of the client improvements include:

  • Improved event filtering on the Home Scene and in the Constructed Play Lobby
  • Right-clicking a Commander to see how many times it’s been cast this game
  • Shifts in timer location and in how Atraxa, Grand Unifier works
  • Choosing favorite lands for Limited and Constructed

There will also be special new initiatives coinciding with the release of Wilds of Eldraine. Events will be updated, anime borderless art bundles will be available, the new-player experience will be improved, treasure chests will be updated, and most importantly, the new Deck Brewer’s Pass will be introduced as a new form of All-Access tokens.

Starting with Wilds of Eldraine, Magic Online will offer players the option to purchase a Deck Brewer’s Pass All-Access token for $20, which will grant players access to almost every card on the client, including all of the cards from Wilds of Eldraine, for a week. The token will go on sale Tuesday morning and grant access to build decks of any format until 10 AM PT on September 13. Like the previous All-Access tokens, certain versions of cards won’t be available (Secret Lair variants, old-border Power 9, Battlebond cards, and some other exceptions).

The Wilds of Eldraine Enchanted Tales anime variants will be available in five bundles for $19.99 each in the Magic Online store next week.

More details for the release of Wilds of Eldraine on Magic Online can be found here.
