How to change your Name in MTG Arena

Fear not, as this doesn’t mean that there is no way to change your username at all. In order to request this, you will have to contact Wizards Support for Arena. Going through this process will not guarantee a name change as they will only allow you to perform the action if you have a good reason.

Processing a name change is also unlikely to be instant once granted and may take a while to appear in-game.
