The Mythic Invitational was an invitational tournament played on MTG Arena.

History[ | ]

The first Mythic Invitational, Mythic Invitational Boston 2019, was an one-off exhibition event taking place at PAX East in Boston, Massachusetts, United States on March 28–31, 2019. It featured the biggest-ever prize pool awarded in a single Magic tournament, with $1,000,000 distributed to the 64 participants, with the winner earning $250,000. Invitations were extended to 30 members of the Magic Pro League, 26 select high-profile Magic streamers, and 8 top-ranked Magic Arena players.[1]

In 2020, the Mythic Invitational replaced the MTG Arena Mythic Championship of the previous year. There were planned to be three Mythic Invitationals in a regular season, each with a $750,000 prize purse and awarding Mythic Points.[2] Mythic Invitationals were to be 128-person events held over 4 days.[3] However, with the COVID-19 pandemic halting all large in-person events, the three Invitationals were compressed into one event, the Mythic Invitational 2020, played from home with 160 invitees. The event structure was not repeated in 2021 and not planned to be run in 2022. The Arena part of Premier Play was hence developed into the Arena Championship.

Players invited to Invitationals are to be drawn from:

Together with each season's Players Tour, the Mythic Invitationals were meant to culminate in a World Championship.
