MTG Arena daily quest reward

The daily wins are reset at 3 a.m. Pacific, and weekly wins on MTGA are reset each Sunday at 2 a.m. Pacific. You earn XP for completing quests and for every 1,000 XP, you level up in your Mastery and gain a reward, more on this later.

No one can deny that the thrill of opening a new pack is sometimes better than playing the actual game. You can’t hold an Arena booster pack and look at the shiny mythic you got from the booster, but MTG Arena tries its best to give its player the closest feeling to that it can.

How the MTG Arena XP System Works

You complete daily and weekly quests and win games to earn varying amounts of XP. Aside from the ICR (individual card rewards) and gold rewards that these quests provide, you earn a Mastery level and get the corresponding reward for that level for every 1,000 XP you gain. Additional rewards are available for players who have purchased a Mastery Pass.

Is the MTG Arena Mastery Pass Worth It?

With the Mastery System, players are kind of pushed to play daily to get more rewards, and the rewards have a wide range from a card style to gems or a full booster pack. If you get your weekly win rewards, you’ll be able to progress fairly easily and have the free-to-play rewards of the Mastery System.

When it comes to getting the Mastery Pass for 3,400 gems, there are a few things to consider. The rewards also change slightly with each new set's Mastery Track. We've done the calculations for you to simplify your purchase decision and get back to drafting pack one, pick one, building your deck on Arena or choosing to mulligan or keep.

Daily and Weekly Rewards

MTG Arena daily and weekly quests

If you’re an ambitious player who’s committed to playing a couple of hours every day, you can get up to 750 gold, 250 XP, and 6 ICRs through the “Daily Win Rewards” by winning 15 Standard Play, ranked modes, or nearly any match that is not a Direct Challenge or against a bot. You’ll get randomly chosen daily quests for either 500 or 750 gold and you’re able to re-pick one of the quests with the hopes of getting a better one if it doesn’t suit you.

One new daily quest is added every day, up to a maximum of three at a time. A few solutions can help you if the daily quests ever fail to show. These quests center around a variety of different themes such as killing a certain number of opposing creatures or casting spells of a specific color.

When are Daily Quests Reset?

Daily quests are reset at 3 a.m. PST and each one rewards you with 500 XP plus their assigned gold value (500 or 750) when they’re completed.

What Day is the Weekly Reset?

Weekly wins reset in MTG Arena every Sunday at 2 a.m. PST.

When it comes to weekly quests, you can earn 250 XP each for the first 15 wins while playing competitive matches against other players through the Weekly Win Rewards.

Other Ways to Get Rewards

If you still want to get more out of each win look to our events calendar for opportunities to participate in release events, themed formats, and various other formats that get introduced every once in a while.

There are also some freebies and XP you can get by using promo codes. Finally, don't forget about the hidden vault inside MTGA that rewards you with wildcards for collecting extra copies of cards that you already have.

MTG Arena is actually pretty generous when it comes to rewarding its players. Does it offer more for paying players? Of course, otherwise, there would be no point in paying. Is it unfair? I don’t think so.

Compared to some other games, MTGA provides a lot of cards for players to build decks. If you’re committed, you can easily build a competitive deck (our Arena Tutor will make it even easier) without paying a dime or buying the welcome bundle.

    Thanks for another great guide! One small remark: the part about the Mastery Pass puts the break even point around lv45, while Nikki’s Mastery Pass guide ( puts it at lv31 for Zendikar. I’m guessing hers is more recent?
