May 2021 Season Rewards

Players will receive their rewards for the May 2021 season at the start of the June 2021 Ranked Season (May 31, 12:05 p.m. PST/20:05 UTC). You must have played at least one ranked game in the respective format to receive seasonal rewards.

  • Bronze: 1 Strixhaven: School of Mages booster pack
  • Silver: 1 Strixhaven: School of Mages booster pack + 500 gold
  • Gold: 2 Strixhaven: School of Mages booster packs + 1,000 gold + Clever Lumimancer Card Style

  • Mythic: 5 Strixhaven: School of Mages booster packs + 1,000 gold

As a reminder, card styles are a cosmetic option only and do not add any cards to a player's collection. There is no benefit to acquiring a card style more than once; if you achieve Gold Rank or higher in both Limited and Constructed, you will only receive one copy of the card style.

Players that finish in the top 1,200 of Mythic-ranked competitors will qualify to participate in a future Qualifier Weekend. Matches that finish prior to 12:00 p.m. PT on May 31, 2021, will contribute to final season ranking. Eligible players will have a Qualifier Badge indicating their invitation granted to their account no later than the second business day of the month.
