  • Invest time not $$$
    By Colfromlag

    Hours of strategy and entertainment without any actual money spent. Frequently updated + I’ve never waited more than 40 seconds to get into a duel. Big fan!

  • It’s not bad but not great
    By caldy908921901

    Scrolling issues - Ex. When you have multiple monsters out in a quick succession wish you could change AI difficult to test your deck instead of testing against people that’s just a preference thing tho

  • Best app to spend spare time on
    By YoloSwaggins 69420

    I think a lot of the reviews on here give this app a poor representation. I played a few real life drafts with close friends years ago as my introduction to the game, and I have found this app to be great at learning new and old mechanics. The starting decks seem to hold up pretty well even after a couple weeks of playing. The packs I have grinded to achieve in the process have made my decks stronger for sure. I have spent nothing so far and am still having a lot of fun! Nothing better than beating an obviously built deck with one of the starter decks (Lifeline/Savage Lands!). The games go much faster than in real life and I enjoy the computer guided card effects, resolving any dispute that may occur in grey areas IRL. My criticism is how expensive it is to get into a draft on the app. Wish there could be a once per month free draft or something! It would also be nice to get a deck building guide for new players, still find it difficult to build. Overall great game, great app, they could have made it much more difficult to play for free and they haven’t! Username - magicmike (let’s play sometime!)

  • Great game with even greater potential
    By Marck007

    A little background I have been playing since the beta of this game and it’s grown a lot over the years. Below you will find the good and the bad and what I believe player would like to see some time down the road. It is unfortunate that arena does at some point require you to sink some dollars into it in order to compete at the mid to higher levels. It would be a huge improvement if the game also allowed a trading system with your coin to allow players more ways to earn cards as the amount of uncommon and commons that you will have in comparison to you rare is quite the difference. It would also help the game be more social being able help my friends get cards they need for a deck etc. the trading system wouldn’t be a shop but an actual player to player only trade system much like a mmo trade system. The system it self would have a minimum cost per card rarity and a few other financial measures so the market would not become saturated and abused but would be a great benefit to all types of players The good news though Unlike it’s older cousin magic the gathering online or if you played the duel of the plains walker games this games systems interface and background flexibility and scaling is ground breaking! The interface is smooth everything is fast and flexible and responsive. Especially considering magic endless complexity with unique identifiers[ flying, flashback, trample] just to name a few the game handles all the overhead that you would not have otherwise have gotten with in paper. This makes magic the gathering easy to pick up and learn the basics, and work on your journey to become a master. Some systems like direct match and making and playing against your friend and the social aspect of magic in arena is very limited. I would love to draft using arena with friends but the systems are not implemented to make any sort of multiplayer direct play possible outside best of 1s because best of three direct play is only half your sideboard. The next thing I would like to see to keep me playing is more ways to earn gold coins the current system is great but once the coins stops flowing it’s hard to play sometimes unless you trying to climb the ladder. As the coin moves you toward your next batch of cards to play with and that is one of the fundamental pillars of fun many players enjoy about the game. it would be nice to have a weekly “boss” fight of a sort we’re your and your friends play an archenemy style game we’re your facing a unique set of never before seen cards only available or to the boss for that week. And beating it could give some coin or other rewards like card styles and so on. The only challenge is arena would need to overhaul some systems to make it work but honestly would be well worth the time. Lastly the game it self has always been my favourite. The original lore of the game is fascinating! And I hope magic sticks to its roots Arena is the best and smoothest experience to play magic on a digital platform for new player and veterans alike.

  • Great…
    By Catalinfaget

    More than just a game, this is art for my brain. mtg is like talking part in a really good book that you get to choose. being able to play digitally with such little restraints and no ads is amazing.

  • Game for losers with no social lives or friends
    By colinnwilliam

    No point in putting creatures in your deck. Nobody uses them. 99% of all decks are destroy and exile and these losers purposely wait until all timeouts are over while going “oops” over and over. Also, if you don’t spend money, you only draw land and you don’t win. Whoever made this game, along with the people who play it, do not deserve to live and I hope you’re lives are brief. Rot.

  • It’s the best version of Magic you can play
    By M1990090619

    Don’t even come at me bro about how MTGO is better, it’s not. The client looks like garbage, with Arena the client looks really cool and the style is exactly like the card game. Every three months or so more cards are released alongside the physical card game. If you like Magic you’ll like Arena.

  • Fuc this rigged game
    By sosdanf

    I wish somebody would go bomb their HQ

  • Good game
    By Ryan.rogers005

    Awesome game

  • Another Pay to Win
    By Alpha-44

    I love MTG but there is an unfair pay to win factor to the online version. I prefer to spend my money on the real cards so don’t spend any on the app. The quests do give you enough money to buy a few packs and have a little fun but there is a lot of people online that have spent money on this and have a way bigger advantage. A tip I have found is if they have sleeves on their cards there is a good chance they are a pay to win, so I just quit and find another game against people who don’t have sleeves.

  • Literally no instructions on how to play
    By PsychoBunnyTO

    I guess they expect you to figure this out on your own as I’ve been playing for an hour and it still hasn’t told me what the 2/2 numbers on the cards mean.

  • Trash
    By AMHB0704

    This is trash unless you want to spend, as usual. The jump in is trash, win 1, lose 1, win 1 lose 1, rinse and repeat. Can not use anything but the minimal, partial deck choices. No way to modify them, they do not follow their own rules, just adding to the force played deck, not thinning it out as needed when cards are added. Go play the paper version at your lgs.
