Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has released their weekly MTG Arena update overview, including details for the first Draft Open and more.

Arena Decathlon Begins Saturday

A special ten-part event starts on December 18 that offers a range of formats with tons of prizes. Every three days MTG Arena will have two special events to play in that offer prizes and tokens that can be collected to qualify you for the Decathlon finals on January 8. The top prize of the finals rewards a set of Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, a Jace, the Mind Sculptor avatar, rare and mythic wildcards, and much more.

Each flight will reward a token if you can manage to reach seven wins in a Best-of-One event or five wins in a Best-of-Three event. Earning three unique tokens nets you one entry to the finals. Six unique tokens earns you two entries in the finals and nine unique tokens rewards you three entries in the finals. Any player managing to grab all ten unique tokens not only gets the three entries to the finals, but also gains entry to the February 2022 Qualifier Weekend.

Entry for each event is 2,000 gold or 400 gems and rewards packs from any set on MTG Arena. The schedule for the Arena Decathlon is shown below. Read more about the Arena Decathlon from WotC.
