Although MTG Arena is technically free to play, you still need to grind for or buy the cards you want to play in your decks. Most of the gameplay revolves around grinding resources, getting gold and gems to play Draft or Sealed events, or to just buy packs. Or you can just pay cash, and for that you need go to the Store.
Deals are always nice, and today I’m talking about a nice one: the Adventurer bundle. Ready? Let’s dive right in!
What Is the Adventurer Bundle in MTGA?
The Adventurer bundle is a bundle of items that you can buy once per MTGA account. It can be purchased for $14.99 on the Arena Store.
What Comes in an Adventurer Bundle?
The MTGA Adventurer bundle contains:
- 1 Adventurer avatar
- 3,500 gems
- 1 City of Brass card sleeve
Why Does the Adventurer Bundle Exist?
The Adventurer bundle is intended to be an introduction bundle in the MTGA Store, especially for newer players.
You get some resources when you create your Arena account and complete the New Player Experience, including starter decks, some packs, and gold. It’s not a lot, especially when you figure out what’s needed to build a good Standard deck. You’re somewhat incentivized to boost your collection by buying more product from the Store and the Adventurer bundle stands out as a good starter bundle that offers good value compared to similar items.
Can You Buy More Than One Adventurer Bundle?
Sorry, but no. The Adventurer bundle is a one-time purchase, meaning it’s limited to one per account.
Are Adventurer Bundles Worth Buying?
If you consider that you can buy 3,400 gems for $20 in the Arena Store, then it’s clear that you’re getting at least a $5-discount on the Adventurer bundle. You also get the cosmetic items, which may or may not be your cup of tea.
But the bundle is worth the price on gems alone. It’s also exactly the number of gems needed to buy a Mastery Pass, which allows you to earn other bonuses and items including Draft tokens, booster packs, ICRs, and more.
Alternatives to Adventurer Bundles
Buy Codes at MTGACodes
MTGACodes is a website that sells MTG Arena codes to redeem Arena products. You can find codes for prerelease pack, cosmetic items, decks, and (you guessed it!) bundles. The Adventurer bundle isn’t currently available, but who knows if that might change sometime in the future.
Buy Codes at GrayVikingGames
GrayVikingGames is another site where you can buy codes to redeem items in MTG Arena. They also sell prerelease pack codes, and older boosters are much cheaper than newly released ones.
Should the Price for Adventurer Bundles Be Lowered?
As a F2P player I’d argue that MTGA should lower the prices on everything (“oh no, another Arena economy rant”), but on the bright side the price of the Adventurer bundles is still pretty good. Although WotC is taking some measures to make the Arena economy better, most content creators that already spend lots of cash still have difficulties getting what they need for their decks.

That’s all from me on the MTG Arena Adventurer bundles. Bundles are a nice way to get more bang for your buck, and they’re even more valuable for players that are just starting their Arena journey.
