Gift Code And XP Codes Offered

Due to the amount of downtime and bugs MTG Arena has been through over the past couple weeks, the MTG Arena team has offered two codes for players. The first code “PARCELMYR” awards some ICRs, gold, XP, and more while the code “SCALEUP” awards 3,000 XP to help complete the mastery pass. Players can enter the codes in the store in the client.
