Magic: The Gathering Arena Review

This game is amazing, we play the table top card game as well but the New Capenna update has our app messed up the game will crash and then we cant open it unless we reinstall the application. We’ve reinstalled the game 4 times today. Overall we love this game and we wont stop playing it for anything! (I will change our review once the problem is fixed) (I will also look for fixes because we love this game so much!)

Played for years and it helps learning the new sets.

It seems like there is a good rate of new content coming out. There is also an already an extensive pool of content that is HUGE, so many hours worth of collecting, deck shaping, and experimenting is here. Also, there is almost no wait time for a game to be found and started. At most Ill need to wait 30 seconds to 1 minute, but normal is under 15 seconds. Training for first timers is also quite good and effective.

Very addictive and fun. Hard to not spend money on it.

Love it but lately we have been having to uninstall and reinstall it to make it so we can play because otherwise it crashes before the game even opens.

With a release of mythic pack, MTGA got a step closer to perfect balance of time and money commitment balance for different types of players. One can obtain all current set cards (play set) by playing every day for a few hours with naturally building up skills. One can buy all play set of current set for under 300 dollars. For most people, its in between. The issue still remains for those who wants focus on construct/build own decks. Wild card pack is now released but at really high price. In fact, for the current price it is simply better to spend money other ways.

It was a great game until the latest update, it doesnt even load now, in fact the game just straight up crashes on startup now, it was working just fine before. Im not buying anymore packs with our money because of this. We cannot trust the game to load. Whats the point of an update if you cant even play the game?

The game is so much fun we play often n play with our friends. Our only issue is that since new capenna update the game crashes after like 6 games and wont open back up unless we uninstall n reinstall it. Love the game but this is a hassle n quite frustrating.

Obviously, an amazing game for anybody that loves MTG. We’ve been playing myself since 94. However, we would love to see this evolve further and allow us ownership of our cards. Please implement blockchain and give us our cards as NFTs to sell on a secondary market. Yes, we know, this would require a major overhaul of the free to play model you have. But, be a pioneer!!

We didnt know anything about this franchise or how to play, but it kept us coming back because of the customization of a lot of different aspects. This made us apparently a magic player lol deff dont play in real life but a fun card game!

We wish we had this app when we were younger.

Its a tough game to wrap your head around, very complex and full of arcane rules. The app makes it very clear what you can and cant do during a turn and facilitates an easier learning experience.

With a lot of Mtg shops not running tournaments and paper being so expensive this is the best way to play and not break the bank.

We admit it this is our first experience with Magic: the Gathering, but it is amazing nonetheless. Its not just for super fans, but approachable for anyone who enjoys a strategy card or fantasy game! We play it whenever we can, in the bathroom or at night in bed. We love it, and consider myself to have become pretty good over the last year. However, this game has some bugs. The biggest problem is definitely the server performance after an update. To put it simply, it is unplayable, literally incapable of even OPENING the app. We’ve had to restart our phone and even reinstall the game a couple times. And the in-game graphics, such as the special effects for certain activities, are kinda glitchy, and stay on the screen the entire round. If these could be fixed, this would undoubtedly be our favorite mobile game of all time – FREE, FUN, and ADDICTING.

We’ve been playing for about a month now and we really enjoy it. Very cost effective way to play with some awesome cards, really enjoy the daily and weekly challenges because they get us to play other decks and the rewards are awesome. The mastery list is really cool and its fun to plan how to spend orbs and look at the next mascot, deck, or card we can unlock. Critiques: we dont like it when Im going through cards when Im building a deck, we hit minimize to look at more cards then when we get to section/cost we want, if we hit maximize Im sent to the beginning of the list/lowest cost cards. We want to be able to zoom out and zoom in on the cards Im currently looking at. The resolution on some of the cards like the artist lands for kamigawa seem pretty poor when you zoom in on them, that could be our iPad though. Thanks to everyone who makes this experience so great!

Love the app over all definitely great graphics beautiful animations plus a cool ranking system bringing and old card game to the palm of your hands and being able to connect and play against opponents from anywhere in the world best strategy card game out there we would recommend this app to any and everyone. And great customer service.

We just updated it and now when we log in we cant play any version of magic. Alchemy or explorer or standard all say event is invalid? What happened???

Will not let us get past the tutorial since something in the mechanics of the game will not allow you to drag a creature to block an attack. Have tried on iPad, iPhone 13 Pro. No luck.

We’ve been a player for 15 years or more now, and from the first tabletop match we played we were hooked. Since then, it has remained our favorite tabletop game by far, if not our favorite game altogether. The only reason we stopped playing frequently was the lack of other players and lack of the hardware to play arena online or PC. So we were pumped to hear of the mobile version coming out, and upon release we downloaded and it did not disappoint. The game takes a little adjustment if youre coming straight from the table, but its constantly improving, and delivers all that suspense of a close match, and, for us at least, a healthy dose of nostalgia. Couldnt be happier to have our favorite game in our pocket.

We love this game despite its obvious issues. We have been playing MGT since the beginning and am very impressed with this game. The fact that we can play anywhere any time is amazing. It has issues though. One it can cause our phone to freeze at times and two, sometimes when we open the game the assistant for helping you get started shows up, despite us having played for over a year now. However neither of these issues will keep us from playing. We have an older iPhone 10 that is most likely the reason that our phone freezes and will at some point upgrade.

Definitely the best card game on mobile in our opinion.


Magic arena suddenly not working on iphone8 and huawei phones can somebody fix this issue so we can all play.

As a new player, the ability to test decks digitally against real world or bot opponents is beneficial in learning; – Game mechanics – Game rules – How the cards interact with the stack – The stack itself (in short its First In, Last Out) Overall we probably wont be entering any prixs lol but Arena helps us with our paper magic ideas and strategies. Client does have small freezes here and there even on mobile but overall its a good app. Especially for new players attempting to get an understanding on how Magic is played.

Love this app, the only issue we have is trying to connect every once in a while we have issues that takes a while to connect but it could just be our devices.. Other than that.. 5 stars!

You guys wanna actually make money!!!! Let us buy singles and wild cards for a reasonable price if we could pay a few bucks for a specific single we need or buy wild cards which essentially is the same thing. We would be more inclined to actually depend money on your game Im sure many many other people would agree we see it in the comments.

Our favorite part about this update is how we have to delete and redownload the app every single time we close it because it cant handle being reopened after being exited out of at all. Otherwise, stellar app! We love playing MTG on the go.

Just keeps crashing after latest update. Only loaded first time. Crashes every time afterwards. Up to this point its been great. We are sure they will fix it.(hurry)

Everything about it is great we just wish there was a way to trade the cards with other players.

Was really fun but every time we open the app the first time we opened it it would work but then if we closed it and opened it again it wouldnt work we would have to uninstall the app and reinstall it again for it to work please fix.

When we first download will work but after we close it and try to reset open it it keeps automatically closing when you click to open and doesnt even actually open but if we redowload it will still work and then when close app a endless repeat of it not working.

Title says it all. Layout and controls are dope for a dope game, but the freezing and glitches while not constant are still frequent.

Id give it a 5 star rating if somehow we could have a jank decks only queuebut we dont think thats possible.

We play daily and the game is great even though it is a little buggy. We havent been able to play since the latest update which is pretty frustrating.

Great solid game. We like folding laundry while we play lol Recently we have had to re~download the game several times because after a few games it crashes, and then wont open (immediately crashes) every time, unless reinstall. Please fix!!

Our only complaint is that brawl is the closest thing to commander and we wish they had all commanders.

We have to reinstall everytime we want to pLay.

Do you like playing games that crash on a daily basis? Do you enjoy playing MTG matches where your opponent, when losing the game, will not finish the game and instead let the time clock run down until they are forced to lose the game? Well, if you do, then MTG Arenas is the game for you!!! Overall, this game can be fun when youre opponent isnt being ridiculous, and the game isnt crashing constantly which is a daily occurrence. If you post any comments or complaints, they will fix them nor will they respond to you. The game will never change, they are completely fine with the game just being okay.

Game crashes a lot, not to mention we tried downloading the new update now the game just closes as soon as we open it. Uninstall it, reinstall it, try to do the update, complete the update. Then back to the app closing as soon as we open it.. We can never play more than one game at a time before it crashes, any card that searches a land from our deck specifically for some reason, makes our game crash.. Wasnt near as bad on our old laptop as mobile is. We really like the game and have invested a lot of actually $ in it. But circumstances limit us to mobile currently which seems to be basically unplayable.

It will randomly crash and be unavailable for long periods of time. Otherwise its super fun. We wish theyd fix it, though.

Algorithm is rigged. We have been playing consistently for over a year and have many decks and reach diamond rank frequently. Every time we select one deck we get very predictable matchups. We switch to another deck and we get completely different matchups. We switch back to the original deck and we get that decks anti-meta matchup again. We thought we were going crazy but we’ve been keeping tabs on it for over a year and it is glaringly noticeable at this point. What is the point of putting together a clever deck if wizards is just going to pit us against our kryptonite every time. Don’t get us wrong, we get our wins but it is very fishy when we do. Im usually on the draw and we get a dream hand, then the next game Im not on the draw with a poop hand and we lose in 3 turns. Make it random like it is in real life. So what if we steamroll 10 people in a row because we have a good deck, this everyone gets a trophy attitude needs to stay out of magic. Its not just your average joes who feel this way, Hello Good Game and CGB bring this topic up frequently, your top content creators who spend 80+ hours per week on this game have to try to trick your algorithm to get those 80% win decks. This is sad, quit hiding it and come out and day your wins and loses are controlled to a minor degree. Rant over!

Easily our favorite app on iPhone. Been waiting for this forever we play this game all the time. Then the new update came out and we have only been able to get it to launch twice. When we hit the icon to load a blank screen comes up for two sends and then closes immediately. We cant find any solutions to it. We offloaded the app and reinstalled. We cleared the ram. We literally cant play the game now. And theres no way for us to reach out to support.

Love magic and was excited that it came to Apple devices. Problem is at the very least we have to delete the app and reload after every new set. Lately it has been about daily. Dont know what the bug is but it is irritating.

We saved up over 20k in gold from winning matches and was excited to buy 10 packs of the new cards.. But now the game doesnt even load. Goes to a black screen and crashes.. Tried restarting the app.. Restarting our phone.. Updating app and our phone.. Everything is updated.. The game still will not load or let us play. We really really like the game.. Been playing for probably over a year now.. But when there are issues it seems they arent resolved in a timely manner. Its a free to play game.. So Im by no means complaining.. But people want to play your game.. And they cant. We would be upset if we were a player who pays to play for sure. Hope you get it fixed.. This is our favorite game on mobile.
