WHAT ARE CARD STYLES?
Card styles are optional cosmetic treatments that change the way the front of a card looks. Unless otherwise noted, card styles do not add any cards to a player's collection.They also have no effect on game play.
HOW DO I VIEW CARD STYLES?
You can view available card styles in either the Collection or Deck Builder page by toggling cosmetics mode. When turned "on", you will see all available card styles: card styles you have unlocked will be highlighted and the collection pip will be glowing, while card styles that you have not acquired will be dimmed. The cosmetics mode toggle is located on the top right of your Collection page (next to the "+ New Deck" option on your Collection page, or next to the deck list while in the Deck Builder):
HOW DO I APPLY CARD STYLES?
Card styles can be applied to any card in a player's collection that uses the same illustration. If a card style is unlocked, you can select the card and chose to either apply the card style or use the default illustration:Important Note: Card styles are based on a card's illustration, and not the card's name. For example, if a card shares the same illustration across multiple sets (e.g. Luminous Bonds in Core Set 2019 and Rivals of Ixalan) the corresponding card style will be available for both versions of that card. If a card has a different illustration (e.g. Luminious Bonds in Guilds of Ravnica) it will have its own card style that must be acquired separately. You also cannot "mix and max" the use of a card style. For example, you cannot have a card style apply to two copies of Healers Hawk, and not apply to the other two copies in your deck.
HOW DO I UNLOCK CARD STYLES?
Purchasing Card Styles
Many card styles can be purchased directly in-game using Gems. Card styles that you can purchase will show a Gem cost beneath the treatment. Once a card style is acquired, you can apply it to all cards in your collection that uses that illustration - you do not need to purchase it more than once!
Some card styles will only be available by playing Magic: The Gathering Arena. Examples of this include special events, seasonal rewards, or player progression. Cards styles that are acquired this way will display the message "This treatment is unlocked during play."
Card styles do not add cards to a player's collection. If you purchase a card style or acquire one through play it only unlocks the ability to apply the cosmetic treatment. If you receive a card style for a card currently not in your collection, you will need to acquire the card first before you can apply the style to it.
HOW MUCH DO CARD STYLES COST?
Card style prices will vary. When purchased directly, the card style price is based on the card's rarity:
Common: 400 Gems Uncommon: 600 Gems Rare: 1000 Gems Mythic Rare: 1200 Gems
Other card styles will be available as part of bundle, or unlocked through play (special events, seasonal rewards, etc.). Once acquired, a card style is unlocked for all cards that uses that illustration in your collection - you do not need to acquire it multiple times!
DO YOU PLAN ON ADDING ADDITIONAL CARD STYLES?
Yes! In addition to upcoming sets like War of the Spark and Core Set 2020, we are continuing to work on card styles for cards currently in the game.
HOW DO CARD STYLES WORK WITH REPRINTS?
Card styles will apply to all versions of the card with the same illustration, regardless of what set it's in. This includes future reprints with the same illustration after you've already obtained the card style. The card style would not apply to reprints with different illustrations, though card styles for the new illustrations may be available separately.
HOW DO CARD STYLES WORK FOR LIMITED EVENTS (DRAFT AND SEALED?)
You can use card styles in limited events as long as you have the card style unlocked (and the card is a part of your limited pool, of course!)
HOW DO I UNLOCK AVATARS?
When you select a locked avatar, a button will appear that will direct you to the location in the store where it can be acquired. You can also go directly to the store and navigate to the "Avatars" tab
HOW MUCH DO AVATARS COST?
You will be able to purchase Huatli or Angrath for either 500 Gems or 3000 gold, each. You can unlock additional avatars inside store bundles - more info coming soon!
WHAT ARE CARD SLEEVES?
Card sleeves are optional cosmetic treatments that change the way the back of a card looks. Once a card sleeve is acquired, you can apply it to as many decks as you like. They have no effect on game play.
HOW DO I APPLY CARD SLEEVES?
Card sleeves can be applied in the deck builder. You can click the back of the card located next to the deck box to bring up the card sleeve browser. Pick the card sleeve you wish to use, and hit "Select" to apply it to your deck. You'll be able to see a deck's card sleeve in the deck builder, the deck details page, and when viewing all of your decks. As a reminder, you can apply the same card sleeve to as many of your decks as you like.
HOW DO I UNLOCK CARD SLEEVES?
Some sleeves you'll be able to purchase directly through the store, while others will be included as part of a bundle. Additionally, some sleeves will be unlocked through play.
