    Program Name: M:tG Tracker
    Platforms: Android
    Author: Platty Soft
    WebSite: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.shalafi.android.mtgpro&hl=en
    Pricing: US$2.49
    Purpose: Life tracker, deck builder, card database, price checking, etc.


    The app is pretty easy to use. Multiplayer life tracking is a teeny bit frustrating, but it works. You can make different "profiles" and set different DCI numbers to each as well as assigning each their own decks. I've not messed around much with this feature, so I cannot give an opinion on it. Each player has win/loss stats for each deck that are easily accessed from the main screen. The deck builder is great. It is easy to use, and the search function is simple and thorough. you can filter your decks according to the format. You fan assign the format when you make the new deck, or later when you want to edit it. When you add cards, you can choose to search for a card, or add one directly by name, to either the main deck or the sideboard. When you are not editing a deck, you can look at the stats (win/loss, CMC curve, and total price) as well as take a test hand. When you tap a card, it loads quickly and after a second, it shows you the card price (Low, Average, and High). You can change tabs to look at an image of each printing of the card as well as look at the sets it's been printed in, price of each of the printings, and the legality of the card. On the details tab, you can tap one of the buttons at the bottom to view the card in either the official gatherer or TCGPlayer. All things said, this is the only app that I've used aside from the official Wizards app, and it is much better than the official one, though not as flashy. I gave it 5 stars. It has a total rating of 4.8

    Can we do some sort of user review type poll? That way we ask the community to rank the software?

    I don't recall how the polls work in the forums so I could not being to offer how to best do it, but if possible, having the community vote in terms of 1 star to 5 stars is most likely the simplest and straight forward. Smile

    But it would be best to get a large sample demographic, so if we cold get more than 25 people to vote on three different products. I don't know if its possible to run this like an article or if that is considered advertising. I get the sense that management is trying to avoid advertising.

    Hey all,

    Not sure if this belongs on this list or not, but I've been making sealed deck generators for the prereleases for awhile now. It lets you generate what you'd get if you actually went to a prerelease and opened the packs. I've done by best to keep everything as accurate as possible with the percent chances you'd get each type of card.

    It might have a good home here.

    I wanted to say that MtG Forge was renamed to Forge years ago. It also provides several game modes, for example constructed, drafts, archenemy, even a Quest-Mod.
    And for the link I would give this one: http://www.slightlymagic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=11323
    And there aren't only 1300 cards implemented, in the newest build there are 13050, which is over 97% of all Magic cards ever printed.
    Modern: WG Vial Knights, U Affinity, R Burn
    Legacy: U Erayo Lock
    Tribal: WGU Slivers, W Soldiers, R Isochron Dragons
    EDH: BW Teysa, Orzhov Scion, WG Trostani, Selesnya's Choice

    The link to the cockatrice website is outdated. The original project was shut down by hasbro.

    However, there's a new one working perfectly, and they are like the "official" source right now: www.woogerworks.com
