Permanent Historic Brawl
Historic Brawl and other singleton based formats that have appeared on the Friday Night Magic events should be made a permanent play option, and there should be some ranking or competitive way to play these formats to help combat hastily conceded games. Historic brawl in particular would help provide another format beyond normal Historic to use non-Standard cards.
Yes please! Any 100 card or 60 card singleton historic format that allows you to finish quests!
This game desperately needs Ranked Historic Brawl, if not a 100-card Ranked Historic Brawl. The Historic Brawl events are fun but like the original poster says, too many games I play during that event end too quickly because my opponents concede hastily after seeing how strong my deck is. I really don't enjoy Ranked Standard play; I would sink so much more money into this game if there was a ranked historic brawl format. I'm sure your other players would too. I would even pay monthly to play a ranked historic brawl format.
As an almost solely commander player, this format would actually get me to keep playing arena long term instead of only launching every once in a while for a new set I'm interested in, which is only about once every year or so.

100 card Historic Brawl is the way to go ! It needs ranked play and a permanent home on MTGA . It would make Arena so much more money when EDH players like myself can play closer to our desired format . Honestly what is WOTC waiting for here ?
I spent a few hundred dollars on mtga the past few years, but quit six months ago in large part due to lack of historic brawl support
This would complete the MTG Online experience! Love this!!
Please also include 100 card Historic Brawl as well.
Please please please add historic brawl, Its literally the only reason I ever open up the mtga app. You lose a customer without it!
This would really open up the historic cardpool for me. I play standard with multiple decks, I have a few historic decks, and there isn't quite much more for me to do. With historic brawl I could be playing more, and thats never a bad thing.
It also helps with the useless cards in the historic anthology. I might actually buy them to play in this format
I've played Magic since 1995, and over those years graduated into playing EDH, which quickly became my favorite format, due to the variety of gameplay and exciting interactions between cards across the history of the game. 100 card Historic Brawl is the closest MTGA gets to EDH (now known as Commander), and it gets closer and closer as Wizards adds more Historic Anthologies. In fact, it has the potential to be an even more diverse format, due to the rule that Brawl Commanders can be Planeswalkers (not just legendary creatures).
I was ecstatic when Wizards made Brawl a permanent format on Arena. Now, 99% of what I play on Arena is Brawl. I am in full support of making 100 card Historic Brawl permanent for both casual and ranked play. Make it happen, folks :)
2k votes deserves a response.
The recent 100 card historic brawl event was amazing and it needs to be permanently available. I like the weighted commanders consideration added, however I wish there was another consideration like the deck's cmc as well. Where I'll play stronger commanders but high cmc cards to just play value some of the matches were very lopsided. My value deck would be paired up against highly competitive decks that were far stronger to the point that I would lose before my deck could do anything. I still love historic brawl and want it available all the time.
100 Historic Brawl is the funniest format in Arena. Should be permanent.

Brawl isn't personally my favorite format, but just seeing so many people getting excited about Historic Brawl in online forums has been a breath of fresh air :)
Lots of positivity and fun brews.
Seems like making this a permanent thing would be a slam dunk ^^
I love 100 card singleton! This should be free and permanent.
Would be a nice addition to the game. I love 100 card singleton!
My life is incomplete now...
This was a COMPLETE breath of fresh air on MTG: Arena. Please, please, PLEASE make this a permanent Free Play queue in the client. I haven't had this much fun playing Arena in a LONG time.
The system that was put in place that matched players up based on relative Commander/deck power-level was a genius decision. While it wasn't perfect, it allowed for more fun and interactive games than not, with tons of diversity of available Commanders to play against. With more regular tweaking, this could be a very special way to enjoy MTG on Arena.
This was a complete and marvelous home-run of an experiment, and I feel it would be a huge mistake to not follow up from this Historic Brawl fest by adding an option in the Play Queue for Historic 100 Brawl in the future. I'd happily spend Wildcards if this was a permanent fixture of MTG:A going forward.
Bravo, Wizards of the Coast! :)
