The last Midweek Magic of March is soon to be here and it’s a beefy one! This week, players will be participating in the Shadows Over Innistrad Remastered Phantom Sealed event. Players will receive six packs loaded with cards from the recent Shadows Over Innistrad Remastered set to build their deck and compete against other players for rewards.

Competing in this Phantom Sealed event gives players a chance to earn up to three prizes. Two of these are in the form of Rare Individual Card Rewards, which can be any rare or mythic rare card available on Arena. The last prize is a Mystery Cosmetic item which can include common rewards like card styles, or a rarer item like a pet or avatar. Card styles are the most common drop and the style can be for any card with a variant in the game.

Players can join the event through the Magic: The Gathering Arena app or game client and is completely free to sign up. Midweek Magic starts at 2 p.m. PT on Tuesday and runs until Thursday at 2 p.m., giving players 48 hours to build their deck and earn their rewards.

Shadows Over Innistrad Remastered Phantom Sealed Rules

Sealed events give players a chance to build their own deck out of six packs of Shadows Over Innistrad Remastered. This event is a great chance to practice your Limited skills without worrying about wasting Gold or Gems on the main Sealed events.

A Sealed deck must include a minimum of 40 cards in their deck, with the remaining cards becoming the sideboard. The Midweek Magic event is a best-of-one event, but you can always swap cards in and out of your deck between matches.

Like all Phantom events, you don’t get to keep the cards once the event ends. These cards are never added to your collection and there is no option to retain them after the event ends.

While building your deck there are a few Limited archetypes to keep in mind to build a cohesive deck. Don’t forget that the cycle of rare lands from Shadows Over Innistrad Remastered have been downshifted in rarity to uncommon so they will be much more widely available in your packs.

White Blue Spirits

There are tons of Spirit creatures in this Remaster set so leaning heavily into a White/Blue flying control list is fairly popular and not too difficult to do. Look out for cards like Spell Queller, Bygone Bishop, and Deny Existence to shut down your opponents.

Green White Humans

Loaded with all sorts of value creatures, Green/White Humans hit hard and go wide. Cards you’ll want for this archetype include Duskwatch Recruiter, Courageous Outrider, and Hamlet Captain in order to pump your team.

Black Red Vampires

There are tons of great Vampires in this Remastered set, all of which synergize with each other to overwhelm your opponents. You’ll want to include cards like Insolent Neonate, Stromkirk Condemned, and Olivia, Mobilized for War, as well as plenty of Madness cards to capitalize on their discard effects.
