Mythic Championship VII is the final tournament of the 2019 season, featuring 32 Magic Pro League players, 16 challengers, and 16 discretionary invites given out by Wizards of the Coast.
At every Magic Arena Mythic Championship, WotC hands out 16 discretionary invites to pros, top-ranked MTG Arena players, and streamers. The purpose of these invites is to feature a diverse and competitive group of Magic players from around the world, according to Wizards of the Coast.
Here are the 16 players who received discretionary invites to Magic Arena’s Mythic Championship VII.
- Mimi Arthur: Mythic ranked Arena and top-ranked Mogul.gg ladder player from Australia.

There are several pros and streamers to look out for at Mythic Championship VII. Crokeyz and PrediMTG have had solid runs during recent Arena streaming tournaments, and Pikula is overdue for a top finish at a major Magic event. But don’t count out Maino, Butakov, and Arthur, either.
Mythic Championship VII is loaded with top-level players. Everyone wants a piece of the $750,000 prize pool, along with the final seat at the Magic World Championship. And for a select few, the Mythic Points earned at MCVII could be life-changing.
You won’t want to miss out on the action of Magic’s final Mythic Championship of the year, which airs from Dec. 6 to 8 on MTG’s Twitch channel.
