Remix Draft: Artifacts Coming To Arena April 2nd

  • Remix Draft: Artifacts has been on the Event Calendar for weeks now, but until today the details have remained a mystery.
  • As it turns out this event is a bit of an experiment to try something that is somewhere between a normal draft and a Cube.
  • If this event is popular, WotC is interested in doing a wider variety of these in the future, to help fill in Limited events towards the end of the current format’s life. This would be a new tool to go along with Flashback Drafts and Cubes, provided this event is popular enough to warrant further exploration. The more people play this event and talk about it, the more likely it will be to come back at some point.
  • This event will run from April 2nd until April 16th, when Outlaws of Thunder Junction goes live on Arena.
  • This event will be both Bo3 or Ranked Bo1, and will cost 10,000 Gold or 1,500 Gems the same as any other Premier Draft. Please note that this means it won’t be a Phantom event. Unlike a Cube, the cards you draft are yours to keep. The packs won in this event will be Historic-legal packs.
  • Each pack will have 13 cards:
    • 1 Rare or Mythic
    • 3 Uncommons
    • 8 Commons
    • 1 Artifact Dual Land
