With the release of Time Spiral, Wizards of the Coast will be retiring the organized play program, Arena. Launched in 1996, Arena enjoyed many years of success across the globe. However, both the game of Magic and Magic players’ tastes have changed throughout the years. As a result, the company will be discontinuing the Arena program effective immediately.

We are excited to announce the rollout of two new offerings that should meet the demands that Arena once satisfied.

If you are interested in either of the following two offerings and are not a retailer, please ask your local store to sample these tournament kits.

Magic: The Gathering Intro to the DCI Kit

This kit is available to any store. Retailers may purchase it from their Wizards of the Coast Sales Representative or their preferred Wizards of the Coast authorized distributor.

The kit includes:

  • 16 Magic: The Gathering premium cards exclusive to the Intro to the DCI Kit

  • A poster with Magic: The Gathering art

  • An informational sheet describing the benefits of running DCI-sanctioned tournaments
  • The premium cards in this kit can be used as league or tournament prizes by themselves or in combination with other prize support.
