Hey guys more exciting new things happening for magic the gathering Arena in the up coming days and weeks .
a whole new game format Historic for playing Magic the Gathering Arena Historic will be for playing non-rotation cards it will not be ranked you will be able to play standard card not banned in the format.
"Historic" is what we're calling MTG Arena's non-rotating format. Events or play queues that are Historic will allow for players to use cards from any set currently available on MTG Arena.
What exactly is Historic? here is the low down as we have it now the who, what where, when, why and how new game format Historic
Will Historic be an "official" Magic: The Gathering format?
Currently, we only plan to support Historic play on MTG Arena.
Will the Historic play be best-of-one, or best-of-three?
Outside of Play, will any other events or formats be Historic?
Currently, we intend for most of our casual events (Pauper, Singleton, Momir) to support Historic play.
Will Historic be ranked?
Historic play will not be ranked, and there are currently no plans for it to be a ranked format.
Can I play a Standard deck in the Historic queue?
Yep - as long as the card isn't specifically banned in Historic play.

... So Historic will have it's own "Banned and Restricted" list?
Will I receive Historic cards from individual card rewards (ICRs)?
Nope. With the Core Set 2020 game update, we will be removing the soon-to-be rotating sets from individual card rewards as well. This means after July 2nd, you will no longer receive cards for Ixalan, Rivals of Ixalan, Dominaria and Core Set 2019 when you receive an ICR.
Will the Kaladesh and Amonkhet blocks be returning to MTG Arena?
Not at this time. While we are still interested in finding the right way to bring theses sets back to MTG Arena, we're holding off for now. We made this decision because the current Standard meta is pretty healthy right now, so we hope this will naturally lead into a healthy non-rotating format as well. As more sets are released and the historic meta develops, we'll continue to evaluate when will be the right time add these sets for Historic play. They'll be back one day, just... not right now.
What about other older sets?
Maybe one day, but there are currently no plans to add older sets to MTG Arena. While it's certainly the dream, it's an endeavor that would take years to implement.
What about <insert question>?
We will have more information about Historic play as we get closer to the fall set release. If there is a particular question that this guide doesn't answer, be sure to let us know!
