It’s certainly a challenge for any collectible card game to keep its player base happy. While too many freebies can hurt a game’s economy, too few might cause you to leave the game altogether. I think it’s fair to say, though, that MTG Arena team is quite generous with their gifts!
Aside from the in-game rewards from drafts, leveling up and completing quests, there’s another way Arena provides you with additional goodies: promo codes! These codes come from a variety of sources and can be redeemed for tons of free stuff; cosmetics, packs, individual cards, “card styles,” or even complete decks!
With how many codes are out there, we at Draftsim thought it might be useful to put all the good codes in one place; just follow our instructions and you’ll be getting max value in no-time.
We will make sure the codes below are up to date, so check back often for new codes!
List of Promo Codes
We’ve organized the codes below by what you can redeem them for. These categories include cosmetic codes, experience codes, and pack codes for now.
Every MTG player knows that there is something more important than simply winning — winning with style! With the introduction of cards styles, you can now bling out your collection. The codes below will add new cosmetics to your account. Note that a cosmetic style doesn’t (always) give you a copy of the card itself, however one style for a card will apply the style to any number of copies of that card!
|ENLIGHTENME|| Narset, Parter of Veils (WAR) Glass Card Style ||January 1, 2023|
|FOILFUNGUS|| Deathbloom Thallid (M19) card style ||January 1, 2023|
|INNERDEMON||Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted (WAR) Glass Card Style||January 1, 2023|
|OVERTHEMOON||Arlinn, Voice of the Pack (WAR) Glass Card Style||January 1, 2023|
|PARALLAXPOTION||Revitalize (M19) card style||January 1, 2023|
|SHIELDSUP||Teyo, the Shieldmage (WAR) Glass Card Style||January 1, 2023|
|SHINYGOBLINPIRATE||Fanatical Firebrand (M19) Card Style||January 1, 2023|
|SPARKLEDRUID||Druid of the Cowl (M19) Card Style||January 1, 2023|
|SUPERSCRY||Opt (M19) Card Style||January 1, 2023|
|WRITTENINSTONE|| Nahiri, Storm of Stone (WAR) glass card style ||January 1, 2023|
The codes below will give you free experience points on the spot! Every 1,000 XP nets you one mastery level, and (depending on which track you’re on) each level has the possibility for extra goodies!
With the release of new sets, MTG Arena is kind enough to regularly provide players with a couple of new packs. There are also occasional out-of-nowhere freebies. You can use these codes to get yourself some free packs and boost your decks.
|PlayRavnica||3 Guilds of Ravnica Packs||July 1, 2020|
|PlayAllegiance||3 Ravnica Allegiance Packs||July 1, 2020|
|PLAYWARSPARK||3 War of the Spark Packs||July 1, 2020|
|PlayM20||3 Core Set 2020 Packs||Unknown|
|PlayEldraine||3 Throne of Eldraine Packs||Unknown|
|playtheros||3 Theros Beyond Death Packs||Unknown|
These are the active codes you can currently use. We have omitted any expired codes, and will continue to add to and prune this list as necessary.
If you have a membership to Amazon Prime, you’re in luck! Wizards often runs promotions to reward you with free decks if you have your Amazon account connected to Twitch.tv. All you have to do is head over to the Twitch Prime loot section and click a button to redeem your code.

“Anything Else?” Special Codes from Special Sources
Heck yeah! These codes are just the tip of the iceberg offered to casual players. Occasionally, if you check your email, you’ll get some exclusive codes from Arena similar to the ones above. If you are more deeply involved in the Magic: The Gathering – especially if you play in paper – you can get A LOT of cards for Arena as well.
That’s right, you can get more “free” Arena cards by buying certain sealed MTG products…
Sealed product codes
If you buy any of the newer Planeswalker decks you will also get a code which you can redeem in Arena to get all the cards in the deck for free!
Here’s a list of all the known MTG decks that contain Arena codes inside the box:
|MTG Gift Pack 2018||Angelic Guardian, Angler Turtle, Vengeant Vampire, Immortal Phoenix, Rampaging Brontodon|

Codes from special events
You can also attend Prerelease events and get a unique code you can use in Arena to redeem for extra goodies. In the past, this has ranged from packs to a free Limited event. The codes you get from these events can only be used once. If you have a friend (or an internet stranger who’s generous enough) who attended multiple events, they might let you have their extra codes. A reminder: each account can only redeem one Prerelease exclusive code, regardless of how many you actually attend, so share the love!
Often during Prereleases people are sharing their extra codes on Reddit, so be sure to have look there when it’s the right time.
Prereleases happen IRL whenever a new set comes out. You can find an official listing of prerelease events from Wizards here.
You can score free packs in Arena if you play in a prerelease – or if one of your friends who does is very nice
Buying prerelease codes
Of course, you could just buy your way into some free packs. Just like with the gift packs and planeswalker decks, you can get these prerelease codes inside sealed kits that you buy online. Be forewarned that the code may be for a sealed event, so if MTGA is not running that format anymore, you may not get anything. Do your due diligence by reading the product details.
And finally, don’t forget that you can only redeem one code per set per account. But if you haven’t redeemed a code for your account for the set, you can fill out your collection with some real Magic packs and add some Arena swag to boot.
Each kit comes with six sealed booster packs, a special foil promo card, a spindown D20 life tracker, and of course a card with an Arena redemption code.

Secret Lair Codes
In late November 2019, Wizards of the Coast announced a series of products named “Secret Lair” that would include small drops of special collectible reprints of cards with alternate art and tokens. Secret Lair is available exclusively from WotC directly.
Included in the products are special codes for card redemptions in Magic: the Gathering Online and cosmetic redemptions (sleeves) for MTGA. If you want these exclusive sleeve codes, these products are the only place to get them. Here’s an example:
On your order confirmation email under “download and activation of your digital products”, click the link that says “click here to get access to your products”. That will take you to a page with both your #MTGArena and @MagicOnline redemption codes! pic.twitter.com/ckA4Yhxcnc— MTG Arena (@MTG_Arena) December 3, 2019
Finally, any game without promotions from Twitch or streamers is simply not complete. For example, there was a Twitch Prime Promo Code event which ended on July 25th, 2019, which you could use for a full 60 card Boros Deck! So you should occasionally check our Twitter, visit our website, and watch some MTG Arena streamers to not miss out any chances to get more cards & packs.
Other events that have awarded special codes include San Diego Comic-Con and TwitchCon, so be sure to stay tuned for updates from those events. Wizards often uses these weekends as promotional showcases, so they often release codes to build interest and attention for Arena.
How To Enter Promo Codes
1: Open the game’s “Store” tab, located in the top menu bar.
2: You’ll notice a small oval on the top-right of your screen which says, “Redeem Code.” Click on it!
3: Enter one of the codes below. Make sure you type them accurately since codes are case-sensitive.
4: Hit enter!
Did you know that, at least as of late 2019, MTG Arena also rewards you with a “vault bonus” for getting extra copies of cards? If you want to see more about this, you can read our article here.
One other way to get more “free” stuff out of Arena is… to win more. If you’re not using our deck tracker and draft companion Arena Tutor yet, you should be! It’ll help you start winning more gems and gold from the second you download it, so check it out.
