May 2020 Mythic Qualifier Zendikar Rising is Here

May 14, 2020
Wizards of the Coast

The first Mythic Qualifier for Mythic Invitational Zendikar Rising is here this Saturday, May 16—and MTG Arena's rising competitors will be ready to battle for Mythic Points and qualification to the Mythic Invitational.

Who Can Compete?

Beginning today—Thursday, May 14—you’ll be able to see the Mythic Qualifier event in your MTG Arena client if you’re eligible to play. In addition to Challenger competitors—the Top 200 Mythic Point-earning players from Q1 Mythic Points—the top 1,200 Mythic-ranked players in either Constructed or Limited from the April 2020 Ranked Season will be competing.

Be sure to check out the event details and complete Mythic Qualifier rules for more details about competing in the event.

What Can They Win?

Players who get to 10 match wins in the May Mythic Qualifier will be eligible to participate in Mythic Invitational Zendikar Rising October 22-25, 2020.

Every Mythic Point players earn contributes to their 2020 partial season standings for competitors looking to make it into the league rank up for end-of-season invitations. Additionally, Mythic Points matter for top non-league leaderboard competitors in the second quarter of 2020 who are looking to qualify for Mythic Invitational Zendikar Rising later this year.

Match wins are what matter most:

Match Wins Mythic Points
10 6
9 5
8 4
7 3
6 2
5 1

Competitors also receive gems awarded by their match wins:

Match Wins Gems
10 3,000
9 3,000
8 2,400
7 1,800
6 1,200
5 1,000
4 800
3 600
2 400
1 200

Where Can I Watch?

Streamers and other players planning to share their Mythic Qualifier journey will be found under the Magic: The Gathering game section of Twitch throughout the event. Some players may also produce additional VOD and YouTube content to share after the live event has completed.

Ask your favorite player or streamer to see what they have planned!

What's the Format?

All matches will be a best-of-three Standard, with up to 15 card sideboards available. The same deck will be used throughout the event so players will be unable to switch decks after submitting their deck choice.

Between last weekend's duo of LatAm Lan Finals plus the MagicFest Online Season 2 Finals, there's plenty of decklists to ready to prepare for this weekend. If you don't know where to start, Magic Hall of Fame member Frank Karsten took a deep dive on the MagicFest Online Season 2 Finals metagame with his take on where the format is headed next!

How Do I Qualify for the Next Event?

The top 1,200 Mythic ranked competitors from May 2020 Ranked Season—the current season until Sunday, May 31—will qualify for the June 2020 Mythic Qualifier.
