Arena Updates[edit]

Isle of Madness brings with it a major update to Arena: all sets are included as options for Arena picks, with cards from Houses of Morrowind, FrostSpark, and Isle of Madness appearing at a much higher frequency. A large number of cards have been removed entirely from Arena, largely due to them being synergy-dependent cards that are too unreliable to build around in this environment. The full list of cards that have been curated out is available here.

Another exciting update to Arena: if you own a premium version of a card, it will be premium in Arena!

Collection Exporting[edit]

The players asked for it! We’ve added it for you!

You can now export your entire collection of cards for import on supporting deck sharing sites. It’s somewhat hidden but you can find an “Export Collection” button by going to the Option menu (upper-right corner Gear icon) and selecting the “Info” button near the bottom. Clicking to export your collection will place a collection code in your clipboard for pasting.

Note: Similar to deck sharing, the code exports all cards as regulars and exports your cards only, not your decks.
