Magic: ManaStrike's latest update has just arrived, introducing Ixalan Season for the Magic Pass, new rewards to earn, and some in-game enhancements to enjoy.

The Magic Pass-exclusive Planeswalker selector lets you pick between three Planeswalkers that were once thought to be exclusive to pre-launch players. They include White Planeswalker Gideon Jura, Blue Planeswalker Tamiyo, and Black/Green Planeswalker Garruk Wildspeaker. The Magic Pass also now offers level boost vouchers, a skin selector, as well as emojis and player icons.

If this is the first you've heard of ManaStrike, it's a PvP strategy game set in the Magic: The Gathering multiverse.
