The easiest way to get free booster packs, cards, experience points, and cosmetics on Arena is with MTG Arena codes.
It can be hard to find all available free MTG Arena codes in one place. That’s why we compiled them all in this article. You’ll find all currently active codes below. Be sure to check back regularly for new MTG Arena promo codes!
NEWEST CODE: On February 14, 2024 there was a special reward that you can redeem for 5,000 XP and special card sleeves. However, the way to get these is a bit convoluted. First copy the following decklist by clicking on it:
1 Extract a Confession (MKM) 84
1 Homicide Investigator (MKM) 86
1 Leering Onlooker (MKM) 91
1 Glint Weaver (MKM) 162
1 Granite Witness (MKM) 206
1 Meddling Youths (MKM) 219
1 Furtive Courier (MKM) 59
1 Case of the Stashed Skeleton (MKM) 80
1 Out Cold (MKM) 66
1 The Pride of Hull Clade (MKM) 172
1 Reckless Detective (MKM) 141
1 Novice Inspector (MKM) 29
Then import it to your decks on Arena, and name the deck “thewayisopen”. Afterward, the rewards will appear in your in-game inbox.
MTG Arena Pack Codes
First up, we’re starting with MTG Arena codes for free packs. You can find all of them in a table below. If you didn’t use any of these codes, you’re getting 21 free Packs. Hopefully, you’ll get some useful cards in these, as well as some Wildcards.
|3 Forgotten Realms Packs
|3 New Capenna Packs
|3 New Capenna Alchemy Packs
|3 Baldur's Gate Alchemy Packs
|3 Dominaria United Packs
|3 Dominaria United Alchemy Packs
|3 Brothers' War Packs
|3 Murders at Karlov Manor Packs
*Once Murders at Karlov Manor is released on Arena today, if there’s a code, you’ll be able to find it here. On the other hand, if there’s no code released, you just need to check your inbox inside the Arena client to claim three free packs.
As you might already know, you earn experience points (XP) from quests and weekly wins. These experience points progress your mastery level, which offers various in-game rewards. You can also gain XP by using certain MTGA codes.
Most of these code typically expire quickly. Thus, there’s just one such code available currently.
While there are no foil cards available on MTG Arena, you can still bling your decks with cosmetics (skins) for cards, and with special sleeves.
There used to be around ten or so codes for borderless cards, such as these Llanowar Elves. Additionally, one could get alternate art sleeves (for example there were Strixhaven sleeves). However, all of these codes expired, and are no longer available.
MTG Arena Codes from Paper Products
Here’s one more thing that you should know. Some MTG products include a code which you can redeem on Arena. This is a great option, if you’re playing both paper and digital Magic. After all, which MTG player doesn’t like a clean two for one?
However, not all paper products come with a MTGA code. Typically, you’ll be able to find them in the following product types:
- Starter Kits
- Prerelease Packs
- Secret Lair
- Planeswalker Decks (retired product, with expired codes)
Keep in mind that codes in products are unique. Therefore, you can only redeem them once, so we can’t provide them here. We’ll take a look at all the products, so you’ll know if there’s one that’s right for you.
But what if you aren’t that interested in paper cards that much? Well, there’s another way to get those codes – without buying the paper product. Let’s first take a look at that option, then we’ll examine the Starter Kits, Prerelease Packs, and all else.
Buying Arena Codes
You can do avoid paper products by buying MTGA Arena codes. With some products, such as specific sleeves, that might be the only way of acquiring them. Furthermore, this is a fine way of acquiring packs with a discount. (Unless you’re playing in a paper prerelease.)
Of course, you don’t want to buy the code from anyone, in order to avoid scams. You can’t check if a code is working before you buy it. It would be possible for someone to sell a non-working code to you. With that in mind, we recommend buying codes from trusted sources only.
Our favorite store is MTGAcodes.com. They offer a wide selection of Arena codes, including Secret Lair, which can be pretty hard to get otherwise. But most importantly they’re safe to buy from.
You can browse among codes from Starter Kits, Welcome boosters, Prerelease Packs, Secret Lairs, and so on. If that seems interesting to you, go check them out. Perhaps they have one of their great sales available right now.
Okay, now to actual paper products. The first one is an absolutely amazing product for an affordable price. We’re talking about the Starter kits.
Each Starter Kit contains:
- 2 different ready-to-play 60-card decks (with multiple rares)
- 2 cardboard deck boxes
- reference cards
- MTG Arena code (redeemable twice)
So, you and your friend can start playing using only this product. While better for casual play, the two decks are quite balanced to play against one another. You can also use this as a self-contained board game. Especially, the one above, which uses the iconic characters and locations from Lord of the Rings.
This can be a a perfect way to play with a friend who stopped playing, and doesn’t have any decks anymore. Or you could use the deck to teach someone who doesn’t play Magic yet.
Oh, and of course, both you and another player can use the included code to recieve a copy of both decks on Arena
All in all, Starter Kits are certainly great products for new player. Here’s a list of all of them, order from the oldest to the newest:
|Spellslinger Starter Kit Core Set 2020
|copy of both decks*
|Arena Starter Kit 2020
|copy of both decks
|Arena Starter Kit 2021
|copy of both decks
|Arena Starter Kit 2022
|copy of both decks
|Lord of the Rings Starter Kit
|copy of both decks
|Arena Starter Kit 2023
|copy of both decks
*This one is only redeemable once, while the others are usable on two different accounts.
With these Starter Kits, it’s usually the best option to go for the newer ones, since the codes from the older ones might’ve expired already.
MTG Arena Prerelease Codes
Prerelease is a tabletop MTG tournament, where you get the first chance to play with cards in paper. Why should an Arena player care about those? Well, they’re the most fun MTG events, for sure. Besides that, you’ll also get a unique MTGA code!
So what does this code give you? Well, it depends on which set it’s from.
Guilds of Ravnica code gave you a free Sealed event, while Ravnica Allegiance provided a Draft Token. Newer prerelease kits give you 6 packs of the respective set.
A code from a certain prerelease can only be used once. That means if you’ve been to two Murders at Karlov Manor prereleases, you can only use one of the MTG Arena promo codes.
If you decide to play at the prerelease, contact your local game store. The dates below should give you some info on when to expect the upcoming tournaments – but the exact date may vary from store to store.
|Murders at Karlov Manor
|2-4 February, 2024
|Outlaws of Thunder Junction
|April 2024 (TBD)
|Q3 2024 (TBD)
|Q4 2024 (TBD)
Prerelease Kits from War of the Spark onward contain a code for 6 Packs from the respective set. Of course, you’ll also receive a code in your Murders at Karlov Manor prerelease kit.
If you don’t like to play in real-life events but would still like to get a code and some paper cards, you can buy a Prerelease Kit online. Just be careful – don’t get an old Kit before Guilds of Ravnica, as there is no code in older ones.
Secret Lair Arena Codes
You might’ve encountered some opponents with cool-looking sleeves, which weren’t available in Arena Store. In that case, they might’ve bought the Secret Lair. That’s a special Magic the Gathering product, which is distributed in so-called Drops.
Each drop features strong cards from Magic’s past with alternate (usually pretty crazy) art style, focused on a specific theme. Some of them also contain a code, which you can redeem for Arena sleeves – with art that appears on a card from the Drop.
For example, here’s a sleeve you could get from the Secret Lair: Year of the Rat.
Secret Lairs are only available on Wizards’ Store for a limited amount of time, so it’s easy to miss them. Thankfully, you can still acquire most of these in the previously mentioned MTGAcodes.com shop.
Before we start to wrap up, here’s one final product we need to mention. The Planeswalker decks are predecessors of the Starter decks. These were also meant for beginners, who are still learning the game.
While these also came with an Arena code, they codes don’t work anymore. So, don’t go buying these in hopes of receiving a code. Sure, you’d still open one, but it wouldn’t do you much good, as it already expired.

All the free Arena codes that currently work are presented in this article. We keep our eyes peeled, and if a new code becomes available, we get it published as soon as possible.
There could be multiple reasons. One possibility is that you made a mistake while typing, or that you didn’t use uppercase / lowercase correctly. Another option is that the code has expired. Here, at CardGameBase.com we regularly check if the codes are still working, and only keep the active ones.
However, if you bought a product and your code doesn’t work, your best option is to contact Wizards Customer Support, and let them sort everything out.
You can get them from various online websites. Pay attention, and use a reputable store so you won’t get scammed. Our recommendation is MTGAcodes.com, a safe site with a wide selection.
