    The first Mythic Point Challenge of 2020 starts this Saturday, 2/29/20. If you're eligible to compete in the event it will start showing up in your client tomorrow. Sadly, this event won't be broadcast anywhere, so we'll have to wait until after it's finished (or catch someone playing in the event who is streaming it) to get any video. Read all the details below.

    The first Mythic Point Challenge of 2020 is this Saturday, February 29—and MTG Arena’s best will be ready to battle for Mythic Points as the 2020 partial season marches on.


    Who Can Compete?

    Beginning tomorrow you’ll be able to see the Mythic Point Challenge event in your MTG Arena client if you’re eligible to play. In addition to the members of the Magic Pro League and Rivals League, the top 1,200 Mythic-ranked players in either Constructed or Limited during Thrones of Eldraine Season 1 (October 2019), Season 2 (November 2019), Season 3 (December 2019), or Theros Beyond Death Season 1 (January 2020) will be competing.

    Be sure to check out the event details and complete Mythic Point Challenge rules for more details about competing in the event.

    What Can They Win?

    Every Mythic Point players earn contributes to their 2020 partial season standings as MPL and Rivals players look to elevate their status, or competitors looking to make it into the league rank up for end-of-season invitations. Additionally, Mythic Points matter for top non-league leaderboard competitors in the first quarter of 2020 who are looking to qualify for Mythic Invitational Ikoria later this May.

    Match wins are what matter most:

    Match WinsMythic Points
    106
    95
    84
    73
    62
    51

    Competitors also receive gems awarded by their match wins:

    Match WinsGems
    103000
    93000
    82400
    71800
    61200
    51000
    4800
    3600
    2400
    1200

    Where Can I Watch?

    Streamers and other players planning to share their Mythic Point Challenge journey will be found under the Magic: The Gathering game section of Twitch throughout the event. Some players may also produce additional VOD and YouTube content to share after the live event has completed.

    Ask your favorite player to see what they have planned!

    What's the Format?

    All matches will be a best-of-three Standard, with up to 15 card sideboards available. The same deck will be used throughout the event so players will be unable to switch decks after submitting their deck choice.

    Between Magic World Championship XXVI and DreamHack Anaheim Arena Open, the Standard format is wide open for several decks to find success this Saturday.

    How Do I Qualify for the Next Event?

    The top 1,200 Mythic ranked competitors from Theros Beyond Death Season 2 (February 2020)—the current season until this Saturday, February 29—will qualify for the Mythic Qualifier in March; and the top 1,200 Mythic ranked competitors from Theros Beyond Death Season 3 (March 2020) will be eligible for the Mythic Point Challenge this April.

    Jump into MTG Arena now and get started on your path to the top today!

    If you'd like to see any of the decks from this weekend you can find a really good list on Reddit.

    One of the top players with a perfect 10-0 records was Luis Scott Vargas and his Temur Clover deck.
