The MTGA tutorial is very helpful to new and experienced players alike. After all, there are rules and mechanics you need to learn in the digital version of the game (like touching a card when it’s highlighted blue to use its activated abilities) that aren’t available to over-the-table matches for obvious reasons.
It gives the gist of how the game works and the rules required to play for new players who have no Magic experience at all. As an addition to online learning videos, Arena is a great way for those without access to local game stores who want to learn the game.
But sometimes we get so eager to play the game that we just blast through the tutorial. Or, in Magic’s case, the complexity of the game might make one run-through of the tutorial insufficient. Here’s how you can do it all over again if once wasn’t enough.
Here are the steps you’ll need to take if you’ve already completed the tutorial but want to do it again:
1. Click on the question mark icon on the top right next to the settings cog.
3. Click “Replay Tutorial” on the right side of the screen. That's it, enjoy the tutorial!
Skipping the MTGA Tutorial
Now, if you find yourself wanting to leave the tutorial again for whatever reason, you can exit by doing the following:
1. Click the settings cog in the top right.
2. Click “Account” in the lower left of the Options menu that appears.
3. Click “Skip Tutorial” at the very top.
Maybe you fired up Arena for the first time and were so excited to play games that you blasted through the tutorial, or maybe some of the concepts and gameplay mechanics didn’t sink in the first go ‘round and the tutorial didn’t quite make sense.
Whatever your reasons, you can definitely replay the MTGA tutorial any time you like, and exit it any time you like. Even if you’ve mastered it, maybe you want to show and share it with your friends!

That’s all I’ve got for you this time around. Never underestimate what going through an old tutorial can bring if you’re an experienced player. You never know when you’re going to learn about a feature you never knew even existed!
Let us know how your games are going on Twitter, or come and hang out in the Draftsim subreddit. And if you’re new to Arena make sure to grab yourself some free MTGA codes for more cards to start filling out your collection.
That's all from me for now. Stay safe, stay healthy, and wash your hands!Follow Draftsim for awesome articles and set updates:
