As a digital TCG without any trading, unfortunately, MTG Arena has the reputation of having quite a hostile economy. While this was certainly the case when the game first launched, Wizards has steadily been improving the game over time. Now, thanks to new features such as Gold Packs, and the occasional free Draft, MTG Arena is actually pretty good for free-to-play players!
Thankfully, alongside these free play-to-win features, MTG Arena also has plenty of genuinely free content. Available to everyone upon making an account, MTG Arena has oodles of content to unlock extra content in the game. Providing cosmetic items and a surprisingly large number of packs, these free codes provide players with a useful leg up when starting out!
To do just that, throughout this article, we’ll take you through all the known active does for MTG Arena. Before we do that, however, you’ve got to know how to redeem codes first! So, without any further ado, here’s how you do exactly that!

Where do you enter codes in MTG Arena?

So, head on over to the Store page, and then just click on Redeem Code and enter one of the codes below.
Some of the codes are touchy about capitalization, others aren’t but if you enter them as below you should be good to go. We messed around a lot as we went through, and they all seemed to work no matter how much we changed the lettering.

MTG Arena Codes
To kick off our list of all the MTG Arena codes, we’ll start with the latest ones to be released. Unfortunately, as we’ll get to later, these aren’t free pack codes, however, they’re nevertheless well worth claiming. Offering a tipple of XP to players, these codes will help you jump ahead through the Mastery Pass. Depending on where you are, this could potentially mean free packs and content!
So far, Wizards has only released two redeemable codes offering free experience. While this may not seem like much, there is more on offer thanks to the Player Inbox. If you’re looking for actual codes, however, then we’ve got you covered! Below are the free XP codes available for MTG Arena right now.

MTG Arena Free Pack Codes
As we’ve alluded to before, and we’ll mention again later, MTG Arena codes are effectively being sunset. Replaced instead by the Player Inbox, now players don’t have to put in a code to claim free packs. Instead, when they log into the game, there will simply be rewards ready to claim, via the inbox, at the click of a button.
Currently, if you log into MTG Arena now, you should receive free packs from Wilds of Eldraine, since it’s the most recent set. Like all the codes on this list, these packs should help jumpstart or improve your collection. Unfortunately, while convenient, these codes are time-limited, so you should try to claim them as quickly as possible.
Thankfully, while the new pack codes have been effectively sunset, the old codes are still active and able to be claimed. Whether you’re looking to jumpstart your collection, or just get some free packs, these codes are exactly what you need! So, without any further ado, let’s dive into all the free pack codes currently available to claim on MTG Arena.

Regardless of if they do or not, however, these codes are free, so there’s no sense in waiting around! Should you claim them all, not only will you get all the cards inside, but you’ll also earn 8 Rare Wildcards. This is obviously a huge boon to both accounts new and old, so don’t delay!
Now, with the free pack codes out of the way, here are all the cosmetics codes on MTG Arena!
MTG Arena Free Cosmetic Codes
Alongside the boatload of old free pack codes available on MTG Arena, there is also an assortment of cosmetics to claim! Unfortunately, just like pack codes, Wizards currently isn’t releasing any new codes via the old ways. Instead, new cosmetics will be delivered via the Player Inbox. That said, most new cosmetics are sold, rather than given out for free.
While this recent development may not be the most enjoyable, thankfully, the old codes aren’t going anywhere. So, if you’re looking to claim even more free goodies, we’ve got you covered! Without any more waffling, here are all the cosmetic codes currently available on MTG Arena.
- ParallaxPotion | Revitalize card and card style

Similarly to the free pack codes above, it’s unclear if any of these free cosmetic codes have an expiration date. Just in case they do, it’s a good idea to claim all of these codes not, lest you end up missing out.
MTG Arena XP Codes
Currently, on MTG Arena, there are two ways players can get XP for free. The first, and easiest, of these is to use the codes we mentioned earlier in this article. By typing in Mellon and Treads as codes, players can receive 2000 XP for nothing at all! After this, if you want free MTG Arena XP, your next stop is IHop.
In yet another food-themed MTG crossover, currently, players can purchase pancakes at IHop to receive MTG Arena rewards. To do this, players must use the IHop rewards program, which allows players to exchange “pancoins” for rewards. The reward up for grabs for MTG Arena players is a healthy stack of 2000xp.
Previously, Wizards of the Coast has also offered free XP for MTG Arena players who attended physical WPN Store events. Running throughout September, this program offered players a maximum of 4,000 XP which is quite a lucrative sum. Unfortunately, while this event was enjoyed by countless players, there’s no telling if it will continue.
Currently, during November, there is no reward program for MTG Arena players at WPN Store events. Considering the program is a great incentive for digital players to enjoy some paper play, we certainly hope it continues. If we hear more about this once-promising program, we’ll update you with more details here.
MTG Arena Paid Pack Codes
Alongside all the free codes that are available for MTG Arena, Wizards of the Coast offers codes for some physical products. The main source of these are typically Prerelease packs and Starter Kits.
When purchasing a Starter Kit, such as The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth Starter Kit MTG players will receive a pair of codes inside. Each one of these codes will unlock digital copies of both Starter decks in MTG Arena. Since there are two of these codes, you can use one yourself, and give the other to a friend!
Unfortunately for value-hungry MTG players, these preconstructed starter decks do not contain a huge number of rare and mythic rare cards. The Tales of Middle-earth decks, for instance, only contain four rare cards and one mythic. While this isn’t incredible value, these decks are nevertheless a great way to start playing MTG.
While Starter Kits may not offer exceptional value, the Prerelease Packs certainly do. Included within each Prerelease Pack is a code for six packs for the same set on MTG Arena. Offering a great way to jumpstart your collection, these codes are all the more reason to attend Prerelease events! Unfortunately, for sets that aren’t on MTG Arena, such as Commander Masters, no Prerelease Pack codes will be available.
Alongside obtaining these codes through your own Prerelease Pack, these codes are also available online. Unsurprisingly, across the internet, several storefronts list these prerelease pack codes for sale to eager players. If you don’t want to part with your hard-earned cash, however, there is another option.
Thanks to generous MTG players across social media, it’s not uncommon for unused Prerelease Pack codes to be posted online. Typically seen on the r/MagicArena Subreddit, this can be an excellent way to score some free packs. Keep in mind, however, many MTG players are already aware of this generosity, so there’s often fierce competition for codes. Unless you catch a code that has just been posted, chances are you might not be the one to redeem it. Still, it’s a nice bonus to keep in mind!
Promo Pack Codes
Players who frequent their Local Game Stores for various weekly MTG events should be familiar with the unique Prize packs. Top finishers in each weekly tournament will generally recieve one of these packs. If you do really well, your pack could be foil!
Each of these packs generally contains one rare/mythic card from the appropriate set (if it’s a Wilds of Eldraine prize pack, it will be a card from that set), one of a set of common/uncommon promo cards with a special border and a security stamp, and another rare/mythic from a pool of cards exclusive to each Prize Pack. The rare and Mythic Rare cards will have the unique Planeswalker stamp in the bottom right of the picture. An example of this is shown above.
In addition, an MTG Arena code is available in these packs, but the amount you can add to your MTG Arena account are limited per set. Typically, you can only add five codes to your MTG Arena account per set. Each code will award you one pack of the set associated with the Prize pack.
Codes are Being Sunset
Unfortunately for code-lovers, there may not be many new MTG Arena Codes added to roundups like this. With the release of Alchemy: The Brothers’ War, MTG Arena saw a dramatic quality of life update with the player inbox. As the name suggests, this feature now lets MTG Arena players relieve mail directly from Wizards of the Coast.
Primarily, this player inbox is used to receive information about new updates and the game’s weekly developments. After a set’s release, however, they can also be used to dish out free packs. As we mentioned earlier, this has just happened for Wilds of Eldraine. Unfortunately, these packs are only available for a limited time, however, it is easier to acquire them, at least.
Another brown lining to the Player Inbox means that pack codes for new sets technically no longer exist. If you miss the release window of a set, you’re simply out of luck and can’t get the packs. Thankfully, while this is a disappointment, codes are being entirely. Old pack and cosmetic codes on MTG Arena will continue to work for the time being.
Alongside these old codes, Wizards has occasionally released new promotional codes for free XP. When these get released, we’ll be sure to update this article, so check back regularly.
