It's almost time to make Magic! Bad, and probably decades-old, puns aside, Wizards of the Coast is just about ready to open the floodgates for Magic: The Gathering Arena, with the PC open beta scheduled to start next Thursday, Sept. 27 at 1:00 p.m. Pacific.

In case you've missed our previous coverage (how dare you!), Magic: The Gathering Arena is Wizards' attempt to create a better-tuned free-to-play version experience of the world's first CCG, to play smoother than Magic Duels. It will feature current cards, which will join the game as their physical counterparts are released, and players owning Guilds of Ravnica Planeswalker decks in real life can unlock the same deck in the game.

As an additional bonus to Magic players, every prerelease pack will contain a code to unlock entry to a sealed event on Arena. All players can also log into the game before Oct. 2 to enjoy a free Singleton event entry.

You can learn more about the Magic: The Gathering Arena open beta on the game's website. Just try not to get schooled by Danny Trejo and his turn-three Gigantosaurus.
