Wizards of the Coast Announces: Magic: The Gathering Portal
In 2018, Magic: The Gathering is getting an all-in-one companion app that will track life and counters, managing and inviting friends to home tournaments, look up rules, and more.
The free app will be available in iOS and Android in every language Magic publishes.
The app will:
- Create, manage, and track home tournaments complete with pairings, invitations for friends, brackets, and playgroup stats. Set up a tournament, invite friends, and keep track of the results. All from your phone.
- Look up card information on the fly, including searchable rules databases for card rulings, keywords, and mechanics, all streamlined for showing your friends.
- Keep track of life totals as well as wins and losses across multiple devices to show just how you stack up against your friends.
- Stay up-to-date on Magic news with a customizable hub. You can focus your feed to read just about what you want—whether that’s news from the very people who make the game, updates to the official Magic story, or results from the latest Pro Tour.
- Keep in touch with your playgroup through social linking that lets you invite friends to events, simultaneously track life totals, and manage a friend list.
- Learn more about Magic through access to video tutorials, glossaries, and rule lookups. New players can learn together, and experienced players can settle rules disputes with a flip of their phone.
