Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has released their weekly MTG Arena update that includes details on the release of Streets of New Capenna, launch of Explorer, upcoming events, and more.

Streets of New Capenna Releases Tomorrow

Magic’s latest set drops on MTG Arena tomorrow along with all the usual fun, including Traditional and Premier Drafts, Sealed events, pack bundles, card styles, and more. Update the client tomorrow afternoon and jump into the Streets of New Capenna.

Explorer Format Launches Tomorrow

While players have been able to brew and build decks for Explorer since last week, the new format launches tomorrow on MTG Arena. This means players can jump into events or the ranked ladder for Best-Of-One or Best-Of-Three action. This non-rotating, true-to-tabletop format is the start of getting Pioneer on the client, so get up to speed on the format now as the Explorer Metagame Challenge comes to MTG Arena on May 6-9.
