MTGA Magic The Gathering Arena Code Guide

Since the Launch of Magic The Gathering: Arena, Wizards of the Coast has had the feature to redeem codes in the store (note: if you are playing on mobile follow These Instructions).  The current list of available codes has continued to grow.  This article is an attempt to get you spun up on what codes are currently available.

Outside of the Free Generic Codes, Wizards of the Coast has been including MTG Arena Codes in many of their physical products.  These codes are a unique set of numbers and letters that are often only able to be used by a single account.  After they have been redeemed on an account, they will no longer work on any other account.

These codes can redeem booster packs, cosmetic items, and specific cards or decks.  Some of these items can be purchased through the MTGA client.  However, it is often the case that these Unique Codes cost less than the same exact items within the MTGA client.  Many of the Unique Codes redeem items that are not currently possible to purchase within the MTGA client.  

There are four main categories of Unique Codes that are described below:


These codes often originate in Pre-Release Kits. Historically, Pre-Release Codes have offered many different items.  The current Pre-Release Codes offer 6 packs of the corresponding set.  Each code can only be redeemed once, and no account can redeem more than one of each set.

Current active Pre-Release Codes:

Core Set 2020 

Throne of Eldraine

Theros: Beyond Death


Core Set 2021

Zendikar Rising


Strixhaven: School of Mages

It is important to keep an eye on the expiration date of these codes.  All codes of the same type, expire on the same day.  For example, Zendikar Rising codes will expire on July 1st, 2022.  It is important to redeem the codes while they are still available.  You may not have another opportunity get those items.  There are some codes that have continued to redeem beyond their printed expiration date. Gray Viking Games test codes regularly and only lists codes that are still redeeming within the client.


Gray Viking Games has established a one-stop hub to get current information on MTG Arena Codes along with providing players with a safe, fast, and reliable way to collect them.
