Here is all the information you need to know about MTG Arenas new Mastery system. A full overview of the levels and how it works. 

 

What is the Mastery System?

The Mastery system is the new experience/leveling system introduced in the latest patch of MTG Arena. It replaces the weekly reward system where you get 3 boosters for getting 15 wins. there are two Mastery systems; The Account Mastery which is a one time track you go through and earn rewards in, this is also known as the New Player Experience. The second one is the Set Mastery which we will explain more in detail in this article.

The important part about the Set Mastery is that there are two tracks, of rewards in this system. A free track with booster rewards at every two levels up to level 72, which represents the earlier traditional free weekly booster rewards. And the second track of rewards that can only be unlocked with 3,400 Gems by purchasing the Mastery Pass and offers a lot of different rewards as you level up and goes all the way up to level 100. Getting the Mastery Pass also includes getting rewards for the basic free track.

 

Earning Experience and rewards

Each level is exactly 1000xp each, which means to reach level 10 you need 10.000xp and reaching level 50 requires 50.000xp. Completing daily quests no matter if it is a 500 or 750 gold quest gives you 800xp,  you get 100xp for your first daily win and 50xp for your second and third, which amounts to 1000xp every day.

The total rewards available for the base free Mastery track for each season
x36 M20 booster packs
x5 Set Mastery Orbs (each can be redeemed for card styles on the Set Mastery Tree).

The total rewards available for the Mastery Pass track (costs 3400 gems) for the M20 season

20 booster packs (x5 GRN, x5 RNA, x5 WAR, x5 M20)
2000 Gems
10.000 Gold
20 Card Styles
25 Set Mastery Orbs (each can be redeemed for card styles on the Set Mastery Tree)
10 Mythic Rare ICRs
5 Planeswalker Cards from the Core Set 2020 Planeswalker Decks
Uncommon and Rare Elemental Cat visual upgrades.
Exquisite Chandra Card Sleeve (Exquisite = Card Sleeve with VFX)

Key information

Even if you don’t purchase the Mastery Pass, you can still gain experience and levels up to Level 100. Since the Mastery Pass gives rewards up to your current level, if you decide to purchase the Mastery Pass later you won’t be behind on XP or Levels. Whether you purchase the Mastery Pass at Level 1, Level 40, or Level 73, you will receive all the rewards from the previous levels (up to your current Level) that you haven’t already received.

There will be XP available through certain event rewards and from promotional items like codes.

Set orbs which are for redeeming card styles in the Set Mastery Tree is planned to only be available in the Set Mastery tracks and nowhere else.

The intent is for the Mastery Track to get the same amount of rewards as the weekly reward system was paying out, in addition, the Set Mastery Orbs has been added on top of this.

The plan is to provide a new Set Mastery system for each new set release.

Each Mastery Pass is tied to a specific Set Mastery. Once a new Set Mastery is released, the older set (and it's corresponding Mastery Pass) will no longer be available. There are currently no plans to allow players to complete Set Masteries for older sets.

@Fbarok you also have the daily Quest and the special events.

Here's what worries me:
Will there be enough codes and events for someone to get all the rewards?
Seems unlikely because we can only farm 1000 points a day, and that alone would require 100 days,
and the next set will be released in less than 3 months.
I'm afraid that in the end if someone wants all the rewards, spending even more crystals will be required
