MTG Arena Mastery Pass Guide
If you've been on Arena, you've likely heard about Mastery Passes. But if you're new, you may not understand exactly what it is. Today, I'll cover everything you need about the Mastery Pass on Arena. We'll talk about what it is, if it's worth it or not, how hard it is to reach the upper levels and answer some of the frequently asked questions you may need to be answered. So, without further ado, let's get into it.
What Is The MTGA Mastery Pass?
The Mastery Pass is a seasonal progression system with (usually) around 100 levels. Players advance in level by earning "Mastery XP." This is done by completing daily quests, winning games, and participating in events. Once you get enough Mastery XP, you'll level up and unlock rewards.
These rewards include in-game items, including booster packs, card styles, avatars, and sleeves. You can purchase Mastery Passes for 3,400 gems, and upgrade it to a premium version for 5,400 gems. The premium version includes additional rewards, such as more booster packs and exclusive cosmetics.

Is the Mastery Pass Worth It?
The answer to this question depends on how much you play MTG Arena and what kind of rewards you are interested in. If you play MTG Arena regularly and want the extra in-game items, then the Mastery Pass is a good value. However, if you only play occasionally or are less interested in the rewards, it is probably not worth the price.
How Hard Is It To Reach The Max Level?
As mentioned, there are (usually) 100 levels to the Mastery Pass. It is not as difficult as it may sound to reach the max level, if you play Arena regularly. Daily quests are perhaps the easiest way to earn Mastery XP, as they can be completed quickly and easily. If you complete all of your daily quests and win five games each day, you will earn 2,500 Mastery XP per day.
This means that you would reach the maximum level of the Mastery Pass in approximately 40 days, depending on how many levels it has. Here is an example of how much Mastery XP you can earn each day:
- Daily quests: 1,500 XP
- Daily wins: 500 XP (up to 250 XP per win)
- Weekly wins: 250 XP (up to 150 XP per win)
It's also worth mentioning that the kind of events you participate in can affect how much Xp you're getting. If you play in Draft or Sealed events, you earn more Mastery XP than only playing in Constructed events.
Mastery Pass Rewards
The rewards for each level of the Mastery Pass vary from season to season. However, you can expect booster packs, card styles, avatars, sleeves, wildcards, gems, and gold. For the newest set, Wilds of Eldraine (which only has 70 levels), here is what you can expect:

Mastery Pass - FAQ
Q: What happens if I don't complete the Mastery Pass?

Q: Can I share my Mastery Pass with other players?
A: No, the Mastery Pass is not transferable. Each player must purchase their own Mastery Pass.
Q: What is the best way to earn Mastery XP?
A: The best way to earn Mastery XP is to complete your daily quests and win at least five games daily. You can also earn Mastery XP by participating in events. Draft and Sealed events usually have the best rewards in this department.
Q: Is the Mastery Pass worth it for casual players?
A: The Mastery Pass may be less worth it for casual players, assuming they don't play frequently. And, of course, it also depends on what kind of rewards you are interested in. If you are only interested in earning booster packs, then the Mastery Pass probably isn't worth the price. However, if you are interested in other types of rewards, such as card styles, avatars, and sleeves, then it is a fine pick-up.
