After the briefest of spoiler seasons, Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate launch is almost upon us. Alongside a new set to draft and enjoy, MTG Arena players are also treated to the option to purchase a new Mastery Pass. Similar to the Season Passes that have come to dominate much of modern gaming, MTG Arena’s Mastery Pass offers a variety of free and paid rewards. 

Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate’s Mastery Pass is due to launch with the set’s release on the 7th of July 2022. The question is, however, will the Mastery Pass be worth it? Join us as we explore the ins and outs of the Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate Mastery Pass to determine just that.

How much is the Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate Mastery Pass?

As ever with the Mastery Passes, this one should cost 3,400 gems, which is $20.

Technically, if you’ve bought one of the larger piles of gems, the equivalent dollar cost of the Mastery Pass will be reduced. 

Thanks to being able to win gems through Arena’s Limited and Constructed events, you may already have some gems in your account. This may reduce the number of gems you need to buy with real-world money. 

How long is the Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate Mastery Pass?

According to Wizards of the Coast, the Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate Mastery Pass will be 70 levels long. Following this, Mastery Pass owners can continue to level up indefinitely. After level 70, however, Mastery Pass owners will only be given a random uncommon card as a reward. 

Players who do not purchase the Mastery Pass will still be able to receive rewards from the set’s free set mastery. However, these rewards are not as lucrative, and they’re only on offer up until level 54. Players without the Mastery Pass will be able to continue leveling up past this point. However, they will not receive additional rewards unless they purchase the Pass.

What’s inside the Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate Mastery Pass?

Here’s everything that’s on offer inside the Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate Mastery Pass should you fully complete all 70 levels.

  • Avatars: Minsc & Boo, Timeless Heroes. Lae’zel, Githyanki Warrior. Gale, Conduit of the Arcane. Shadowheart, Sharran Cleric. Wyll, Pact-Bound Duelist. Astarion the Decadent.

Is the Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate Mastery Pass Worth It?

Now that you know all the details about the Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate Mastery Pass, it’s time to answer the most critical question. Is it worth it? Thanks to the Mastery Pass being stuffed full of value, we’re included to say yes as usual. This time, however, it’s not that simple. 

This is thanks to the Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate Mastery Pass predominantly rewards players with Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate packs. Unlike other Alchemy sets, there isn’t all too much value to be had in these, as only a few cards are likely to see Historic and Alchemy play. If you’re not interested in either of these formats, this means the packs are only useful for their Wildcards. All the Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate packs in the Mastery Pass will only give you four rare Wildcards and one mythic Wildcard. 

Whether or not you should buy the Mastery Pass also depends on how many levels you will or are planning to complete. We’d recommend waiting until the end of the Mastery Pass to see whether or not the investment is worth it.

If you complete the MTG Mastery Pass before it expires, the investment is absolutely worth it. The 1200 gems inside already bring the relative cost down to 2200, and the 20 paid packs more than justify the rest of the price. On top of getting your money’s worth in packs, you’ll also receive various cosmetic options and a player draft token, which in itself is worth roughly $10.
