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?
As we’ve just mentioned, the first thing you need to know is how to actually redeem these things. After all, knowledge is only good if you actually learn how to apply it, so you’re going to need to know where to 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 this list of all the MTG Arena codes, let’s talk about the latest one. Released in celebration of The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth set, this new post was initially a riddle. Teased by Wizards of the Coast on Twitter, MTG players had to decipher the meaning behind “Speak friend, and press enter.”
If you know a few things about Lord of the Rings, the answer to this riddle will be rather obvious. After all, this is the riddle that faced the fellowship of the ring when entering the mines of Moria. Just like Gandalf in the books, to answer this riddle, all you need to do is say “Mellon”. After doing this, and hitting the enter button on MTG Arena, you’ll have entered the code correctly! This will give you 1000xp! That’s one whole level on the Mastery Pass!
Thankfully, following on from this recent surprise addition, September is looking like a strong month for MTG Arena codes and content. This is thanks to the release of Wilds of Eldraine later this month. Once this set launches, MTG Arena players can expect to receive some free packs in-game. Delivered by the in-game inbox feature, players won’t even need a code to receive these packs!
Thankfully, if you are after codes specifically, there are still plenty of older codes to redeem below, which we’ll get to shortly, Alongside all of these, MTG Arena players can also look forward to the Summer Sale starting today. Running until the 15th of September, this sale will allow players to pick up cosmetics on the cheap! While this isn’t quite free, it’s nevertheless better than nothing, at least!
Now, with all that talk out of the way, let’s dive into all the codes on offer for MTG Arena right now!

MTG Arena XP Codes
Currently, throughout the month of September, Wizards of the Coast is running a new promotion for MTG Arena players. Whenever you attend a physical MTG event at a WPN Store, MTG Arena players can receive 1,000 XP! Equivalent to one level in the Mastery Pass, this will allow players to race through progression!
Unfortunately, while this event is running for the entirety of September, there is a catch or two. First and foremost, this incentive reward can only be earned four times, as there’s a 4,000 XP cap. Alongside this major downside, players may have to wait for their reward, since XP is given out via the in-game inbox throughout September and October.
To receive the cache of 1,000 XP, you can participate in any MTG event at a WPN store. This includes Wilds of Eldraine Prerelease, Open House, Friday Night Magic, and more! Obviously, this is a great incentive to get down to your Local Game Store every week and play some in-person Magic if you can!
As a note, the account you play with in-store is the same account that will receive the reward on MTG Arena. You will also have to have an existing MTG Arena account for the reward to be sent out to you. Since this promotion is designed to tempt Arena players out into the real world, however, this shouldn’t be a problem.
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!
Codes are Being Sunset
Unfortunately for code-lovers, there may not be many new MTG Arena Codes added to roundups like this. As of Phyrexia: All Will Be One, Magic Arena saw a quality of life update. We can now receive mail directly from the MTG Arena developers, which also means we can directly receive the benefits of these MTG Arena codes. As such, new sets generally will not be released with codes, but you can find three packs to start your journey with each new set in your in-game mailbox.
Otherwise, hybrid players who still attend prereleases can expect some bonus codes to crack some packs on MTG Arena. Otherwise, doing well at weekly events at your Local Game Store can award prize packs, which also have MTG Arena Codes for one pack contained within. These generally have a limit per account, so if you’re an FNM hero, expect these to stop working at some point.
