During the tutorial, you will be prompted by the sprite to choose an avatar. This will take the place as your character during games and will be visible to your opponent. But don’t worry if you change your mind, it’s easy to change. You just have to know where to look.
Follow this quick guide and we’ll have you playing as your favourite Planeswalker in no time! Don’t forget, you can find more handy guides for MTG Arena right here!
How to change your avatar
First of all, start at the main menu and find the Profile tab at the top of the screen. Click on it and you’ll be taken to an avatar select screen. Here you have a choice of twelve different Planeswalkers.
Clicking on them will bring up an enlarged image on the right-hand side of the screen. Along with a brief description of their traits and powers. Once you have chosen your favourite character, click confirm and you’ll be taken back to the main menu.
As you play more of Mtg Arena you’ll find that prefer some characters to others. You might even find a favourite. Luckily, you can change your avatar at any time. Go back to the profile, change to your prefered choice and represent your team.
Don’t worry though, your choice has no impact on the game. It’s just a way to support your favourite Planeswalker and show your colours!
