Pioneer Masters

The announcement confirmed that there will be a new format called

Pioneer Masters

later this year.

Direct messages

Magic Arena players requested a feature that allows them to chat with their friends, and the March update will finally add it. You will also be able to chat during matches, but you will only be able to chat with people you are friends with. You will not be able to chat with your opponent if he is not on your friend list. Players will also be able to display "Busy" or "Offline".

New Emotes

The Magic Arena will also have new emote options in the game: two fixed answers for those who want to say "Thank you!" and "Sorry!" Both options will appear for a few seconds in response to another emote. For example, if your opponent says "Oops" for a move, you can say "Sorry!"; Likewise, if your opponent says "Cool!" in response to your move, you will have the option to say "Thank you!" in response.

Cube Sealed

The Cube Sealed will be introduced at the MTG Arena in early April, with the cube built from cards currently available at the MTG Arena, including Historic Anthology II. This will also be the first time that MTG Arena will hold a "ghost" event, which means that the cards used will not be added to your collection. Wizards will reveal the full list of cards included in the Sealed Cube later this month.

Cards Sleeves

Arena will change to vertical scroll in the window tô choose sleeves. That will make it easier for all players to scroll.
